Action Figure Time Machine 90s Edition: Knightsend Batman from Legends of Batman by Kenner (Confirmed: Good)
Knightsend Batman is 4 3/4 inches tall, but he's definitely hunched over, so he'd be a bit taller if standing straight. While these guys are larger than Kenner's previous Batman lines, they're more in scale with later lines such as Batman Forever and
One of the best things about Legends of Batman was that it typically featured more Batman-like coloring on the costumes. No neon here! Knightsend Batman makes good use of the traditional gray and blue Batsuit and adds in metallic gold and silver on the torso. The gold on the left sleeve is a little messy, but overall this guy looks good. I love the red eyes!
This really could have been a great figure. He's comic accurate, nicely painted and sculpted, and features some decent accessories. It's just too bad that he can't stand. That really, really irks me, as this is the kind of figure that would look cool standing about anywhere, especially on my desk. Now he'll just have to lean. If he could stand, I may have been tempted to give this figure an Epic as an awesome Batman figure from the 90's, but as the figure stands (or rather doesn't), I'm going with good. He's a good figure, just don't take your hands off of him. He's far too awkwardly posed to stand up on his own.

When writing reviews, Barbecue17 tends to sit on his leg. When it goes numb, he has a difficult time standing as well. He's falling over the price, putting junk on his Flickr account left and right!
