The collectible action figures, inspired by the heroes and villains of Gotham City, are designed for kids ages 3 and up. While adult collectors and comic book fans will appreciate these figures, there are many elements that make them ideal for play.
To start, the 4-inch figures incorporate the popular unboxing trend in a fun way. Each figure comes with three surprise accessories — including some rare and super rare — that range from blasters and shields to armor and Batarangs. This is a great way to have the unboxing element that kids enjoy without worrying about unintentionally collecting duplicate figures. The figure’s packaging also features a metallic “First Edition” sticker and a tear-away section that doubles as a trading card.
The play doesn’t stop with the figures, though! There is also a Batmobile two-in-one vehicle (designed for kids ages 4 and up) that is compatible with the 4-inch line. It gets the two-in-one name because the back section of the vehicle — where Batman or Robin (or a villain, in the case of a Batmobile-jacking) sits — detaches to become the Batboat. The Batboat, which is also on wheels, is fairly easy to remove when the Caped Crusader needs to make a quick getaway, but it won’t fly out on its own. Both the Batmobile and the Batboat are push vehicles — totally kid-powered — which also adds to the imaginative play potential.
One final (and fairly significant) positive aspect of these figures is the price point. Each 4-inch figure retails for $7.99, while the Batmobile vehicle is $19.99.
Overall, these figures are a great option for young superhero fans who want to recreate their favorite Batman moments and create new adventures of their own!
