I picked this up last year but never got around to doing a write-up about it. I absolutely love it when companies do holiday-specific exclusives (for example, the Christmas-themed S.L.U.G. Zombies, Santa Gizmo, or the Playmobil Santa set). There was a couple of years where Target had a lot of these, maybe about 4-5 years ago, but they don’t seem to have as many nowadays. However, they did have this one last year.
It’s only a 4″ figure and a Dark Knight Rises one at that, but the black-and-orange color scheme and the pumpkin-themed bubble and graphics on the packaging proved irresistible to me.
Good little geek that I am, I spent a lot of time trying to come up with a good in-universe reason for Batman to own a suit like this. The best I could come up with is the Joker kidnaps Robin and threatens to kill him if Batman doesn’t dress up like that and go trick-or-treating.
Or maybe Batman’s just a big Clemson fan.
