So I took some pics and here's a mini-review of the "Batman & Space Pack" figure.

Image

The first thing I noticed about the figure is that he's a new sculpt. I thought he was simply going to be a repackaged/repainted Batman like the one from the new Batcave, but I was wrong. First of all, he's a dark gray (not black). He is also a completely new re-sculpt! All four limbs as well as his head and torso are all different. At first I thought his head was the same, but noticed his ears are more pointy and his face/jawline is rounder than the batcave Batman.

Here's some more pics:

So...overall he's a nice looking figure...UNTIL you take the space pack off and realize what they did to his chest! It looks like he's got a shelf sitting on his chest for the space pack to rest...and it looks really stupid! See below:

Image
Image

I really don't know why they did that! After all, the space pack came with one of the previous Batman figures and it fit him just fine without strapping a shelf to his chest!

Anyway.... I am glad to see that there's yet another new sculpting for this line. It shows that Mattel is willing to throw a little more money into this line as opposed to just repainting the plain "buck" over and over.

I would definitely get that just for the batman figure, I really don't think the jetpack colors fit batman, I like the black paint of the original better.

Given time I'm sure we will get a better version. Even if they just paint the new Batcave version all black or even gasp dark gray with a black cowl. :shock:

That space pack version looks very Nolanesque.

A quickie custom I just did. Pretty much a simple repaint. I wasn't sure how to do his wings, so I made a split cape instead to simulate his 2 wings.

Love the Terry McGinnis batman, was thinking of doing that custom, but had same issue of how to do the cape.

Anyone down a batgirl custom using catwoman figure yet?

Looks as if I am going to have import new justice league items
Sent Fisher Price customer service this email

Nature of Inquiry: Having collected the majority of the Imaginext DVD super friends range for son, I have seen there is a new range under that banner justice league in the US which are predominately sold at Target. My question is when will they hit UK stores and will any store have these as exclusives?

Got this response

Hello
Thank you for your email regarding the availability of the Justice league in the UK. Unfortunately these are not part of the UK range and we currently are unable to advise you if retailers will be stocking the items here.
We are sorry that we are unable to help you on this occasion.

Bit glum now....


I had to do the opposite with some Biker Mice From Mars figures a few years ago. The continued cartoon never took off in the US and so we never had the toys.

I can't post the eBay link but I searched "Imaginext Brainiac" and found a listing with the figure included in a heroes & villians pack with "kohl's exclusive" on the card. Anyone familiar with this?

Thanks for posting the link! If the new Robin was included in the other pack I would not have been able to resist despite the inflated price of the auction.

I wonder why the Brainiac pack comes with Hawkeye's mace without the bird man? Interesting packing. Those would make a nice holiday pack to help new collectors hop into this line.

The ONLY figure I need is Brainiac......the others would be for customizing !! Not paying that price for "extra" guys

Even though I REALLY would like to have/add Brainiac to my collection
