French vs Super French??
Can someone please explain the difference between the regular French releases and the "Super" French releases? Are they the same thing?
I have seen a number of listing describing the figures as 'Super French" and also another thread on the org shows a Super Stinkor.

Hi, sometimes they have few production differences/variants inside, about the card itself just the word "SUPER" has been added on the front and sometimes on the back you can read "made in France" or "made in Malaysia" for an identical card (the best example is SUPER Spikor).
Few of the SUPER cards have no alter ego known as regular YB cards at this day.
The ones we know/don't know:
-SUPER Moussor/Mossman: All the ones we know are 100% made in France inside. We already seen a carded one unflocked at the legs and arms.
-Moussor/mossman (regular french YB card): All the ones we know are 100% made in Malaysia inside.
-SUPER Puantor: Existing with regular shield and variant Blue He-Man's shield, all the ones we know are 100% made in France inside.
-Puantor (regular french YB card/ with french texts only): Existing with regular shield and Blue He-Man's shield, all the ones we know are 100% made in France inside.
-Stinkor (regular french YB card/ with english texts only): we never seen one surfaced but is existing.
-SUPER Devastator/Sy-Klone: we never seen one surfaced, not sure if he is existing.
-Devastator/Sy-Klone (regular french YB card): Few of them are hard heads and the other ones are soft heads, all the ones we know are 100% made in France inside.
-SUPER Spikor: Some of them are 100% made in France and other ones are 100% made in Malaysia inside. Few made in France ones have the handle of the trident fully painted in silver.
-Spikor (regular french YB card): we never seen one surfaced, not sure if he is existing.
-SUPER Hordak: sometimes coming with unpainted eyes/mouths but at my eyes it is just a factory deffect, all the ones we know are 100% made in France inside.
-Hordak (regular french YB card): we never seen one surfaced, not sure if he is existing.
-SUPER Modulok: The ones we know are mixed Made in France with few made in Malaysia parts inside.
-Modulok (regular french box): we never seen one surfaced, not sure if he is existing.
-SUPER Musclor Tonnerre/Thunder Punch He-Man: The ones we know are 100% Made in France Inside.
-Musclor Tonnerre/Thunder Punch He-Man (regular french card): we never seen one surfaced, not sure if he is existing.
-SUPER Skeletor Paralyzor/Dragon Blaster: The ones we know are 100% made in France Inside.
-Skeletor Paralyzor/Dragon Blaster (regular french card): we never seen one surfaced, not sure if he is existing.
Mattel France stopped producing toys on the territory at the end of the year 1986 and added for their last productions the word "SUPER" on few packagings, as a signature to say "bye bye" (A kind of Frenzy), but the Motu line was not alone, we also seen few Hot Wheels "SUPER" french cards.
Example for Hor Wheels with a "SUPER" Crack-ups card:

Hi Johnny, thank you for the Informations on the yb's.
Now i have a question concerning yb super puantor, you wrote that all figures you saw were made in france. I have an example which is fully marked made in Malaysia. I got this from a french guy off ebay which Sold his childhood collection. He told me that this figure is the original which was packed Into the card. I bought several figures from him, all with original package.
For me this figure looks totally french made due to plastic and the freaky french colours
Let me know your thoughts on this.
FIGURE twists for a power punch!

Hi, yeah I seen the sale I remember, the seller had a lot of cards+loose figures listed few months ago.
The made in Malaysia figures sold on french cards that I crossed sealed were all marked "made in Malaysia, printed in France" on their cardbacks. (regular MossMan YB and Super Spikor)
I never seen a Puantor YB or a Super Puantor YB with a made in Malaysia figure Inside, but well, I got only 4/5 Super Puantor in hands and something like 10 Puantor Yb around max to check by myself.
So, maybe that few Super Puantor were made in Malaysia, all is possible, but it is strange that on the cardback "made in France" is written instead "made in Malaysia, printed in France".
Back to 85/86 we also got on sale the regular european "made in Malaysia" Stinkor card in France, any chance that the seller got two Stinkor figures in his childhood and switched with the wrong figure when he did his sales?
Super Spikor is the only one I know existing with both combinations inside the bubble and each time at the cardback the country of origin of the contents is indicated correctly.

I remember the day I got my Slime Pit when I was child, the first figure that I put in the trap was Mossman.... a very very bad idea... I totally ruined him with Slime :/
