I took the time to dress up Lili Ledy Superman with one of his original style Ledy Emblems. While most original Lili Ledy emblems are missing, we WorldMEGOheads make do with reproductions like this one. Either way, it gives him a cool air of authenticity.
You have to love a Superhero that wears velour underpants on the outside. Yes, you really do. All that groovy fuzz is probably what drew me to Ledy in the first place. You don’t have to tell your friends he’s a Mexican Superman from the 1970′s. Somehow they just know. Look!! Up in the Sky!! It’s a Bird. It’s a Plane. Nah, it’s just Erik Estrada doing another infomercial.
And now watch as we undress Superman bit by bit. He’s tough. He can take it. Plus, the only person watching is a headless eight-inch action figure with white underwear on.
Somehow he looks a little less super in his Pajamas. You wonder sometimes if these weren't stitched by hand. This represents a Type 3 Suit. Its notable differences from a Type 1 or 2 suit is the use of a more synthetic blend versus more cotton blend material for Type 1 or 2.
A single snap adorns the famous "Ledy Loop". Another notable difference in Type 1,2 or 3 suits are the tightness of weave. Here we see in this Type 3 has a much tighter weave than the heavily ribbed versions of the Type 1 suits. Type 2 suits are much closer to Type 3 suits in comparison, but the Type 3 suits seem to use more synthetic materials and are much smoother.
A texture shot of the cape, which typically has one smooth side and another with a matte-like finish, or one that has more friction when you rub finger against it.
Belts are quite rubbery with a smooth texture. Buckle small indent on the inner square. Like BASA, there are two loopholes and the last one works for all male Ledy Super Amigos. Perhaps we ought to try the first loop around a SuperChica!
A texture shot of the shorts. They are found with a snap set or a velcro set to provide the closure on the back. Make note of the inner texture too, for it is quite unique, almost corduroy in effect.
Boots lack the ridges at the top associated with their Mego and BASA Counterparts. Lili Ledy boots are also shorter (we're talkin' millimeters, though a quick spot check for a con job is that all original Ledy boots fit nicely underneath the Ledy kneecaps); also Ledy boots are wider than MEGO and BASA footwear.
Here's a great addition to this segment. Thanks to Luis, we have a varied assortment of original Lili Ledy Superman emblems. Now to talk him out of one.
