Variant Robin in blue & black costume. My TRU.com order with the Mattel DC Super Friends Aquaman and DCSH Bat-Signal Batman/Robin and Bat-Signal Batman/Nightwing TRU Exclusive 2-Packs. And the Nightwing was indeed the variant blue & black costumed Robin and "NOT" Nightwing.

The way I heard it, the Nightwing version is coming out later. You place all 3 side by side and the blue Robin is supposed to represent the transition between the other two.

Yeah, that's not Dick Grayson so it really wouldn't be a transition.

Yeah, leave it to the collectors to come up with asinine excuses to explain away silly variants in our collection!

Mattel said at their panel that the Nightwing set was coming later. The blue Robin version is simply a variant in Nightwing colors.

Even though I'm a traditional costumed person I actually like the colors of this Robin...Although I do think it would have looked cooler if the cape lining was blue instead of yellow.

Thanks. Always wanted a Bat-Signal Batman, but not too crazy about cloth capes.
