The Imaginext Superfriends line has turned out some fun toys, including a couple Batmobiles. But this toy appealed to me specifically due to the double windshield/canopy, highly reminiscent of the 60's television Batmobile designed by George Barris. I'm glad I waited.
Included with this Batmobile is another Imaginext Batman- black on black, like 1989! That's three Batman figures I have like this- from left to right: Mattel DC Action League Batman, Mattel DCUC All-Star Batman, Fisher-Price Imaginext Batman.
It was really fun getting these last two Imaginext finds which are currently rolling around my desk, non-stop. These are FUN toys with melt-your-heart cuteness- not something I anticipated getting into, though have wholeheartedly embraced. Compact size and lower price may have dictated the appeal these sorts of toys to me, though I'm also a fan of their economy of design, playability, and colorful spectrum when collected en masse. Such is the case with my fascination with my Imaginext Superfriends, DC Action League, and Mattel JLU collections- though simple in articulation, their caricature sculpts are inviting and fun, saying "Play with me!".
