Total Armor Smashing Axe Batman

So I was in my local Wal-Mart the other night and saw some new Mattel Brave & The Bold Batman figures! I didn't buy one because I wasn't there for that, so I skipped it, but on the way home from a productive band rehearsal tonight, feeling good about life, and I stopped to see if the one I liked was still there. It was!  Hooray!!

I had become sidetracked from these wonderful and fun toys, and do actually have more I need to show you, but we'll take a look at the new kid on the block first. I bet BunkyChee would like this, seeing as he likes orange so much AND is the Reigning King of Batman Collections...

I just LOVE this guy! I've said before, I used to be slightly annoyed by all the absurd variations on Batman in the toy world, but now I like it. Can't a boy change his mind? They also had Electro Shield Batman, Spine Shocker Batman, and Shock Suit Batman. I paid $7.97 plus tax at Wal-Mart, and I just saw these are going for $9.99 on the Toys 'R Us website, by the way. It is almost always the case that Wal-Mart is selling Mattel toys for less than Target or Toys 'R Us- unfortunately not every line of Mattel toys gets distributed to Wal-Mart, and some of the Targets and Wal-Marts out in the county have none. As is the case, I always feel blessed when I find something I'm into. The also had the blue Brave & The Bold Ultra Armor Batmobile there for $19.97! Will someone please tell give me permission to go back and get one??

I have eight of the Batman figures from this series now, including a really cool Grapnel Claw Batman I haven't opened yet, and would probably (laughs) buy a couple more! I love these toys and have an entire shelf dedicated to them in the Toy Vault. Here's Smashing Axe Batman with Total Destruction Batman, Deluxe Sky Shot Batman, and Stealth Wing Batman.

An added note of interest: I was surprised to find the entirety of DC Universe Green Lantern Classics Wave Two  there at Wal-Mart, and they were under $15.00 each. Not bad! They looked great, and that Collect & Connect Stel figure is awesome, but I didn't go there to spend a hundred bucks, so...

More Later! Play NICE Together & Have FUN!


  1. GREAT FUN :) so has Batman crossed over to become an aXe-man? haha

  2. Alright... I've talked it over with Alfred. You can go back and get one.... but only if you eat all your vegetables and read your Crime Buster manual for at least an hour before bedtime.

  3. It's a Deal!!
    I LOVE my veggies, BTW- you'd be proud, I'm a healthy eater :D

  4. Fifteen?!!! I can't find those Green Lantern Classics figures going for less than $20 anywhere in New York City.

    Walmart is so much easier to hate when there's one you can actually get to....

  5. I know! It's a Super Wal-Mart across the street, LOL! I do hate it, though I CAN find some Mattel DC product there, not always a lot, but some. I should have purchased them on principle alone, but I have a bill to pay, so...
