A brand new Toys R Us opened last week and I was lucky to find three different DC Superfriends Batmans other than the regular one, which is painted blue and gray. The variants are painted in black and gray (1990s animated), one is all black (movies) and the last is blue and black (no clue). Anyone else see these and does anyone know if their are more variants for the other characters? Take care all

Oh yeah, I also was extremely lucky and found a DC Superheroes Clayface and Catwoman at the grand opening as well!

These have been known for a while.
TRU exclusives for now
there is another Batman - in odd colors on the cycle
there is another Batman coming with orange/red coloring.

Superman has variant paint schemes in the packouts with vehicles.
there was a Flash variant shown at SDCC - see the Mattel section of the SDCC 07 gallery.
(link to gallery near top of forum page.)

EDIT - gallery link seems to be currently missing. I have notified the admins.

There is also a deluxe (?) Bats that is black and grey, but a diff shade of grey than the single variant. He's the one with the copter looking thingy for his back. The bat symbol is smaller and one of his hands is positioned differently.

*queue Ham Salad with picture action!* :lol:

D'OH! I haven't taken any pictures of these yet. Perhaps tonight I can whip something up...

An interesting thing about the Batman repaints at TRU is that they ship in their own separate assortment, completely removed from the regular Superfriends line.

Here's some pics of the Super Friends Batman variants, Deluxe figure, Batcycle w/figure & Batmobile.

Batman Variants-
All the Batman figures come with an air powered batarang launcher and shapes learning flash card puzzle piece.

Black & gray -

Blue & Black-

All Black -

Deluxe Batman - The Deluxe Batman is a little larger and has a molded right arm with a magnet in it's hand to activate the prop on the backpack. He also has batteries in his leg and torso. The prop rotates when activated. Also the wings of the glider pop out and for some reason his chest lights up and turns red. (why?)

Batman w/ Batcycle -
The Batcycle is pretty much a reissue of the old Rescue Heroes Jake Justice Motorcycle with some minor modifications-

Side of Box -

Batmobile -
The Batmobile has various lights & sound actions that can be activated when you put a deluxe figure in either the driver's or passenger seats and place their hands on the magnets.

I like the color on the copter version best, but that right arm is what stops me from buying it.

I wish there were more photos of the Neal Adams(blue and gray)Batman.
By the way, do anyone noticed the "Year One" utility belt on all the Batman figures? :)
