It seems I never run out of older toys to discover on the internet- having only began toy collecting as an adult less than a year ago, there was a lot to explore. If you've been keeping up with The Super-DuperToyBox, one might imagine my delight when I found these:
*Mattel DC Super Friends Superman w/Slam & Bam Wall and Batman w/Throwing Action.
These chunky, colorful action figures from 2007 are right in line with the kind of toys I've been enjoying lately (DC Imaginext, Batman B&TB, DC Action League). The same day I ordered these, I got an Aquaman & Hawkman which I showed you last week. And by the way... why didn't anyone tell me about these??! (Bubba, ChunkyB- I'm lookin' at you!) Actually, Bubba did in a post on the Hawkman from this series a little while back. Like the Super Friends Hawkman, I chose the variant Superman & Batman figures from this toy line- sometimes I'm just that kinda guy :D
*Mattel DC Super Friends My First Batmobile
Try not to laugh too damned hard, but when I saw a video of this on YouBoob awhile back (where I first saw the Superman variant), I squealed like a little girl :D DEEE-Lighted, Friends! I questioned my own sanity at purchasing such a whopping BIG vehicle, but I found one for five bucks less than it went for retail in '07, and I just (laughs) couldn't pass it up :D
Yes, I have opened it, and have been playing with it non-stop for the last few days- it has a variety of sounds, lights, pop-out wings, and a hidden net launcher in the grill! Principle photography has already been completed- there will also be videos, a parade, dancing bears, and a twenty-one gun salute with fireworks as I rocket past the stratosphere fueled with unbridled excitement over this most kickass Batmobile :D
