ShadowTek Firefly


I've shown you some of these Batman ShadowTek/EXP toys as they've come in the mail, but let's take a closer look at one of these FUN action figures...

*The Batman ShadowTek Firefly Like the Hawkman I showed you a few posts back, Firefly here is a ShadowTek, not an EXP. I got him cheap at $7.99 MOC, though I saw people asking for a lot more, so look around using ShadowTek and EXP as search words. I think he is one of the coolest of these with all his tubing, backpack, and removeable mask! Even better, when the lever is switched on the backpack, sparks can be seen in the transluscent lower section (see the video below)!

From Wikipedia:
"Firefly appears in The Batman voiced by Jason Marsden, which is perhaps his best-known appearance. In the series, he first appeared in "The Big Heat" as a mercenary and arsonist for hire. His weapons and paraphernalia include a heat ray, a battle suit, and a jetpack (which sounds like a fly when it is used). He was hired by GothCorp to attack its rivals, only to be defeated by Batman who left evidence that exposed Firefly's connection to GothCorp. He has appeared in the episodes "Fire and Ice" where he teamed up with Mr. Freeze. He joined Team Penguin in the episode "Team Penguin" along with Killer Croc, Killer Moth and Ragdoll. In "White Heat", Firefly gains a new partner and lover named Dr. Jane "Blaze" Blazedale and they both steal a phosphorus isotope to upgrade his battle suit. An accident causes the isotope to mutate Firefly into Phosphorus who acquires greater powers, but is also driven insane soon after his transformation."

  1. He definitely looks like a fun toy. Back in the eighties, sparking toys were everywhere. You don't see that too much these days. I might have to be on the lookout for him. He looks pretty damned cool!! :)

  2. Awesome!That sparking feature is a "throwback" to some toys of old like Blackstarr that had this feature.
