First thing's first guys.This Is a toy.That's all It Is and all It was meant to be.This wasn't meant to be displayed In the Smithsonian.This Is not a "Hot Toy".In fact,this Is the complete opposite.These are discount Batman figures ,meant to be crashed up against each other In simulated battle scenes by your average 5 to 10 year old kid.Made as simply as possible in order to be easily mass produced and distributed evenly to your local Wal-Mart toy aisles.No more , no less.I knew this was what I was getting when I picked this up about a week ago for a little under 10 bucks and I'm not disappointed.O.K.,well maybe the cape could have been made with soft goods but ,meh,whaddaya gonna do? I remember my first ever Batman figure as a kid.It had a hard as rock plastic cape that snapped off In a horrible "action figure meets bike spoke" incident that even today has me feeling a little bit traumatized.At least this one blows In the wind.
Be careful when pulling the caped figures from this line out of the packaging.The capes are secured into place with a small slit in the plastic.Since they are plastic,they have a tendency to wrinkle a bit If you're too rough when pulling the figure out. If you do manage to get some wrinkles In yours,like I did,hit It with a blow dryer for about 30 seconds on hot.That should straighten It out significantly for you.
I love the blue and grey version of Batman which Is why I chose to go with this one over the movie version.This figure has a certain knock-off quality that I like.That can't be a good thing to hear If your a serious collector looking to pick this figure up lol!But It does,It has this look and feel of a quality made knock off.This Is a toy I would have loved to have and play with as a kid and sometimes,that's all the reason I need when deciding on what figure will be making the trip back home with me and into my collection.
