The folks from Spin Master sent me some of their new Batman toys for free to unbox and review. These collectible action figures are a lot of fun and have great detail.

When I first got the email asking me if I’d like to check out the new Batman line from Spin Master I was excited. I didn’t know how Spin Master would handle the line but I was very impressed when I saw the finished product. I was walking through a store and saw them on the shelves. They started appearing after the first of the year. I had to stop and take a closer look. I got so excited for me own set of these toys to arrive at my house.

I received two Batman 4 inch figures, Batman and Rebirth Tactical Batman. I also received the Batmobile. The Batmobile is a 2-in-1 vehicle. You have The Batmobile and also the Batboat. The Batboat slides into the back of the Batmobile. The design of both is very cool. I would have liked to have seen some more play features on the Batmobile but having two vehicles for $19.99 is a good price, adding more bells and whistles would have made the price go up. I think these toys have decent price points with the individual 4 inch figures going for $7.99 and vehicle for $19.99.

The action figures have 11 points of articulation and are well balanced so that they will stay standing even when they have their attached gear. Each character gets 3 mystery accessories. There is a great little feature that lets kids unbox these mystery accessories in a fun way. They also get a trading card included. You can see what I mean in my review video.

Went to See The Justice League

Justice League Day

Today I went to see The Justice League. I went in with very few expectations. I’ve been burned before by the DC movies. Batman V. Superman was a disappointment and Man of Steel was such a departure for the character of Superman. I only saw part of Wonder Woman but that was pretty decent. So, I was a bit skeptical that this would be a good movie. Luckily Joss Whedon took on the film after Zach Snyder had to bow out for family reasons. I certainly wish the man and his family no ill will but having Joss Take over is probably the only thing that saved this movie from being a complete mess.

Despite Superman becoming a dark and brooding character in previous movies it looks like they are finally turning around his character. Superman is always a beacon of hope and light and he only really works when balanced out with a darker character like Batman. I enjoyed that the movie had much more humor in it. I liked how the team worked together to take on the bad guy and the return of Superman to the land of the living was done well. I’m sure that there were glaring issues but I enjoyed the movie overall.
