Now let's take a closer look at that Mattel Total Armor Stealth Blast Rocket Batman I scored yesterday.
I've been calling these five inch figures, but they're really about 4 3/4", by the way. I bought this one mostly for the color- that and I'd only seen about four or five of these in the immediate county, so I decided that if I wanted him, I'd better go ahead. I've gone back for one of these Brave & The Bold toys, only to find it already gone. And many of the stores around here have none- all the Iron Man & Spider-Man toys you can imagine, no DC *sigh*
"Black Manta is at his island hideout, concocting a plan to take over Atlantis. Batman arrives on his Stealth Blast Rocket, transforms it into a mega blaster and joins forces with Aquaman to defeat the villain." Yes, the mega blaster (laughs) fires a projectile, and that's cool. But I paid five more dollars for this guy than I did the Total Destruction Batman, and in my humble opinion, he's not nearly as cool. Total Destruction Batman is a deluxe figure, whereas Stealth Blast Rocket Batman is considered a playset. I'm not sorry I got him, but I'd recommend you save your bucks for the deluxe figures that have just as much play value and essentially the same amount of accessories.
Yes, Batman can carry the Stealth Blast Rocket on his back. Like any of us five inches tall, he has to lean into it a little...
I've heard some negative reaction to the hexagonal accessory slots on the limbs of these toys, but I doubt seriously that any child would find that unsightly on these cute, chunky toys. Children like to touch, manipulate, and play with toys- this is how they learn manual dexterity.They'll love them!
Stealth Blast Rocket Batman with Total Destruction Batman, Stealth Wing Batman, and Battle Sword Batman!
You'll be seeing more of these soon in The Super-DuperToyBox. They are FUN TOYS, and that's what I'm all about, Kids!
