I found this Mattel Total Armor Kryptonite Collision Battle Pack at Toys 'R Us this morning- I was so thrilled wuth the Total Armor Batman & Joker I scored last night, that I pulled out my wallet for some more Brave & The Bold. And this one had a Superman! Joy!
Here's Batman hammering on Metallo, whose Kryptonite heart is diminishing the mighty Man of Steel!
I bought this set for the Superman & Batman in it, which I really like- Batman with a giant sword is hilarious in my opinion! I love the whimsical nature of these toys- they are made for play and are FUN, like a toy should be!
Metallo the Evil Robot and his Kryptonite heart were a big disappointment though. I'd say the lack of accessories was a disappointment, but I think Mattel considered Metallo himself too be the accessory, because while he looks cool, he doesn't do much. I guess I thought he'd be more like an action figure, but he only has articulation in the right shoulder, left handgrip, and a sort of spring loaded bicep, that's shown lifting Superman on the back of the box. Hardly! His hollow, hard plastic body isn't even heavy enough to stay upright with Superman in his grip- I had to load Batman on his back to keep his right side down! I later read the back of the box: "Figures may not stand alone as shown" LOL! At the price of $22.99, they should have done a better job on this- Lame! A buck just don't go as far as it used to, and to be fair, I was too preoccupied with the Superman & Batman included to even notice that Metallo had virtually no joints. And that's a shame because he looks cool. The ball in his chest rolls around to expose his Kryptonite heart, but I would have rather had the better plastic body and hip joints. Adding insult to injury, he has the hexagonal slots at his knees, back and right shoulder, but they included no accessories! BooOOoo!
Let's take a look at Battle Sword Batman alongside Stealth Wing Batman... I love these...
And now the whole gang I managed to accumulate within just a few days. It's all JBoy's fault for sending me that B'wana Beast! LOL!
