Is that Batbot in the pic a custom?



That's the "Twin Blasters" electronic figure, some people use it as a Batbot fill-in but I don't like it, his face is exposed and those things on his shoulders shoot discs, to each his own I guess!


From what I remember of the show, I thought it looked pretty accurate.

There are two Batbots in the show. The first (superior) design was crafted by Mattel, but never released in the states. The second one appeared in th most recent season, and is part of the larger-scale line by Mattel. A little paint to hide the flesh-tone chin makes it decent enough to be put on my shelf as Batbot v2.0.

He can bend his head back when his torso is in more of a wrestler pose.

You can push the head down so that only the eyes are exposed. And those disc shooters do look TV accurate.

PJ, have you seen the Ultra 2pk they have at TRU? Just barely glanced at it but looks like a black or blue Bats with orange belt(?) and Robin in what looked like a purple and blue outfit.

Everything the smaller version has, plus the aforementioned neck, and he can raise his arms out to the sides a bit.
