Its kinda hard to say without actually seeing the 2 figs. I doubt its a prototype as they are never painted up in retail color schemes. None of my DC Heroes are loose so i cant really check them to see, they did use the same Super Powers molds but had new head sculpts. Sometimes the paint jobs on details were a bit sloppy. Do you have a link to the auction? Ebay usualy leaves old ones up for awhile.
These figures are not ToyBiz. They are exactly like the Super powers figures in everyway except no date and very slight sloppy paint application. The real question is how would a super powers Superman and batman figure wind up with no dates on them?
I originally thought that they were some kind of knock off but compared to my riddler figure, which has a date, this may not be correct. The mold of the figures is 100% identical to regular super powers figures and is not cheapened like the Super Amigos and Toybiz figures.
The only thing i have left to consider is whether these are preproduction figures, but the figures appears to be factory painted including both the superman and batman symbols.
So can anyone come up with another scenario as to how these figures don't have dates?
I bought these figure several years ago so no help with ebay records.
I don't know if this will help you or not. But click on the pic below and then click on the full screen option below the pic and you'll see both the SP Batman (first figure) and the Super Amigos Batman (last figure). The Super Amigos has rubber arms and legs along with a vinyl cape. PJ Click on pic to enlarge -

The bottom right is not an SA Batman figure, Amigos figures had knee joints. That must be another knock off from when the movie hit in 1989. I'm almost 100% sure that the figures are indeed SA figures from a source that said the SA figures of Superman and batman had no year markings.
