Batman has been a staple in my life since childhood. Those early DC Comics Super Heroes figures were my favorite. Even in the 90’s when a new Batman movie was released I had to have those figures as well.
But today I’m running down my Top Five favorite Batman figures from years gone bye. Enjoy.
5. Scarecrow (B:TAS)
Scarecrow is one of the best looking characters in Batman’s rogues gallery. You can draw him in so many ways because he’s a scarecrow. As for the figure, we’ll he had a spinning arm so he could twirl his scythe or have a crow perch on said arm and spin that too.
4. Bane (Batman & Robin)
This figure was twofold to me. Yes, he’s a Batman villain and also a masked luchador in my fig fed.
3. Robin (Batman Returns)
Robin wasn’t in Batman Returns (1992) but he did make the toy line. He came with a backpack grappling hook and a cloth cape. When it came to using Batman or Robin when playing with figs, Robin always won.
2. Batman (Batman 1989)
I had this figure multiple times over because the bat-belt would snap. I would put that yellow bat-belt hook on everything I could so Batman can climb or rappel down.
1. Robin (DC Comics Super Heroes)
Out of all the Batman figures I had growing up Robin from the DC Comics Super Heroes line is my favorite. Just like Batman Returns Robin, I would use this figure a lot in play. Something about the Boy Wonder drew me to him, could’ve been his colorful outfit, or knowing Robin was a kid and I was too, could be anything…
Also, every good figure comes to an end. I remember the day I lost Robin. I was playing in a sandbox at my house, when I was done I left a couple figs in the sand. The next day when I went looking for him… No where to be found! To this day I have no idea what happened to that figure.
Many years later I found a MOC Robin and picked him up for around ten bucks. I still have it MOC, and on display in my room. That Robin means a lot to me.
And since I only have one favorite Bat related vehicle I’ll just add it here…
From the Batman Returns figure line, Robin’s JetFoil Cycle. My Robin figure would fly around everywhere and I didn’t just use it in air, to me it became a jet ski as well.
