Thank you to Fisher-Price for providing their Imaginext DC Super Friends Batbot Xtreme Figure for review.
Availability: September 2017
The Imaginext DC Super Friends Batbot Xtreme is massive, standing at over 2 feet tall and packed with plenty of features given the size of this figure. The figure itself is non-articulated, so you cannot more his arms, legs, or even the dome shaped helmet. The Batbot is the largest DC offering this year from Fisher Price in their Imaginext line, and has the likeness of Batman covered in body armor that resembles the Batsuit designed by Greg Capullo. It’s not a perfect match, but there are similarities between these designs. The batbot features a projectile launches with five missiles on each shoulder, and the top three are launched by pressing the buttons on top.
The largest feature and what makes this very impressive is the extendable wings, which are activated by turning the power pad on your upper left. This springs out the wings, along with the punching fists that work by holding the handles on back and pressing the trigger. This activates the punching mechanism as shown on the box. The punching fists also fire a disc when the first punch is thrown. In addition, it features lights and sound effects, and the two bulbs light up on the chest that light up in red and blue. On the upper back, there is a voice changer that is activated by pressing the yellow button with the “I” and talk into the microphone, this will change your voice.
The Batbot can hold many Imaginext figures in all of the hidden compartments, this includes the chest and the elevator that can go all the way up to the cockpit, compartments on the back of the arms and back of the legs that can hold figures, a prison on the back of the right foot, and a hidden compartment on the front left foot (facing you) with a motorcycle that Batman can ride. With all of the features and compartments, the Batbot should be able to hold a dozen figures or more, but it is not meant to be a headquarters such as the Hall of Justice.
The Batbot is painted in blue, and black as the primary colors, with some yellow and red as the projectiles and power pads.
Overall, this is a fun set, with great features and lots of play value. Due to the 2 foot size of him, storage won’t be much of an issue as it’s tall, not wide like some of the building sets. Imaginext collectors will definitely enjoy it, and children will love the features.
