If you’ve been following our Fisher Price coverage including a complete photo gallery of The Heritage Center and an interview with the Imaginext Marketing and Design team from July 2015 during our Press Tour at the Fisher Price Corporate Headquarters, as well as our New ToyFair 2016 coverage, we are continuing our coverage with this months latest Imaginext offering, the Battle Armor Batman, Superman, and Lex Luthor figures.

It looks like Fisher Price is getting ready for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice with these new releases of Batman, Superman, and Lex Luthor Imaginext figures with Battle Armor. These figures are part of their DC Super Friends line and are based on the likenesses from DC Comics.

Availability: March 2016

Batman, Superman, and Lex Luthor Imaginext figures use the same sculpt and deco as seen with previous sets over the years. What sets these figures apart is the battle armor that is included in the packages. For Lex Luthor, we thought that it might be time to change up the suit and offer him in his business suit, or possibly in a repainted Kryptonite suit.  Just an idea for the brand team to try and refresh the character quite a bit. They also might want to look at Batman and Superman and maybe offer Batman in a grey and blue suit, and Superman in a white and black suit. The figures shown above are nicely done and painted in their iconic colors and costumes. Both of Batman’s and Superman’s cape are made of fabric.

Batman includes a batwing that can transform into a suit of armor. The back part can be removed and become a batarang that Batman can hold. That Batarang is big and too heavy for him to hold and stand upright, which is why it was lowered to the ground just so he can stand for his picture to be taken. The Batwing fits over Batman’s head and body and the wings and backside can swivel, but the wings can only stay in the upright position if the batarang is connected to the Batwing. In both modes, you can see the Batman logo on the wings and there is some very nice and detailed sculpting on this piece. The Batwing is painted in black and grey deco, with transparent orange.

Superman includes a space drone that can transform into battle armor. The drone follows Superman’s color schedules, with a blue, red, and grey and transparent yellow. In vehicle mode, it features a windshield, two rockets, wings, three wheels for landing, and two removable rocket boots. In battle armor mode, it can fit over Supeman’s head and body, and the wings can only stay upward if the tail is raised up along with it. The front of the drone looks like an oxygen mask so Superman can breath in space.

Lex Luthor includes a robot that can transform into battle armor. The armor is painted in purple, silver, and transparent green and dark grey. On the chest of the suit is the letter L for Lexcorp in transparent green. To apply the armor, the armor has to be raised in the hip area in order to be big enough so it would fit Lex. Once that is done, it fits over Lex’s head and body perfectly. If you lift the armor up, Lex might fall out from under it as there is nothing to hold Lex in place at the bottom of the armor. The armor features hinged and swivel arms, and a green transparent sword (Kryptonite sword?) that can be held on the back, or the handle can be stored on the right wrist.The faceplate of the armor can be lifted up to reveal Lex’s head underneath, and the wings are on a spring and can be manually lowered, but pop right back up as there is no option to keep them down.

Overall:

The brand and marketing team at Fisher Price continues to do an incredible job on each release that we’ve seen, and these Battle Armor packs are a nice way to refresh these characters while offering something a little different. Fisher Price has offered larger body armor suits, but these smaller one’s are certainly a interesting concept, meaning that you have two options to display these. These are certainly fun to play with or keep displayed with your other Imaginex figure collection.
