Action Figure Review: Blast and Battle Batcave from Batman: Power Attack by Mattel
DC Total Heroes, the Power Attack Batman line has been Mattel's evergreen Batman line for about the past year and a half. It's definitely designed for kids and features a very stylized look, but for this set I figured "How often do you get to buy a Batcave?" Batcaves have always been some of the most prominent and best playsets available, which is interesting because rarely does much combat occur in the Batcave (part of the reason why Kenner's six paneled Batcave playset is one of the best playsets ever). Still, Batcaves are awesome in general, so I paid my cash plus tax to the cashier and left Big Lots with the Blast and Battle Batcave. How is it? Read on and find out, chum!
The top floor is pretty basic in that it's simply a walkway with a computer bank on it. The computer bank is a relief that's connected to the wall and features a bunch of computer screens showing different images from various pieces of package art (via simple stickers). There are six random screens of data and gauges, a scene of Robin fighting Two-Face, two images of Killer Croc, and one screen of three eyed little creatures climbing out of a toxic waste dump. What the heck is that all about?
If you are a collector of Batcaves, you can snap this up at Big Bad Toy Store today!
I've reviewed two other figures from the Batman: Power Attack line:
"Attack in the Box" The Joker
"Dual Destruction" Two-Face
