Saturday Afternoon Haul - April 16, 2022
A big haul week here at Cereal Creatures. We finally got some of "The Batman" Spin Master figures, plus more Batman, some Robin and a few Universal Monsters!
1) Wingsuit Batman from Spin Master. I don't buy all of these "less detailed" figures from Spin Master. I stick to the characters I like (Robin!), but the new "The Batman" movie figures were really well done. A deal from Target lead me to get this Wingsuit version that lights up and talks when you press the bat logo on his chest.
2) Like the Wingsuit version above, this 12" "The Batman" figure from Spin Master is one of two versions of the movie's caped crusader. The second Bruce Wayne in the photo is McFarlane's offering of the Future State Batman. After losing his fortune and presumed dead, Bruce is forced to fight crime as a street level Batman without all his wonderful toys. This figure, on the other hand, is top notch and represents the comic art very well.
3) I finally picked up the Batman: TAS v version of the Robin Pigpen, a Target exclusive. Like our Spin Master figures above, I got this on sale. It's smaller than I thought it would be (3-4") and I'll probably leave it in the package anyway. The second thing below is Hot Wheels 2022 Batman '66 bat mobile. I've never seen any other version of this, but it looked so unique and for $5 I had to pick it up. It reminds me of a wind-up General Lee from "Dukes of Hazzard" I had a long time ago.
4) Now we're getting to the heavy hitters. I've wanted this Mego Creature from the Black Lagoon. At 14", it's even bigger than I thought. The look is similar to his 6" counterpart and as one of my favorite Universal Monsters, it got a premiere spot on my desk.
5) And finally, we got our hands on the elusive Universal Monsters X Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael as Frankenstein's monster. It's the ultimate action figure (no kidding) with a great sculpt and incredible design. And kudos to the local Wal-Mart for having a couple of them in store!
