It’s another Friday, which means it’s time for another Flashback Friday Figure Addendum! This week, I continue the trend of the last three FFFAs, and wrap up my Batman Forever-based addendum, with another look at Night Flight Batman!
Today’s review is the last of the Batman Forever reviews. It’s a third variant of Batman. This is another brief review.
THE FIGURE ITSELF
This is another Batman from the Batman Forever line. He’s yet another fairly-typical-but-not-THE-typical-version(let’s go with FTBNTTV for short). Night Flight Batman probably has the most descriptive name of the many batmen in the line, as his big feature was a giant set of wings(Lost long ago by silly child-Ethan). There was certainly a fanbase for the pre-face “Night” amongst the Kenner think tank. I get that he’s Batman and all, but seriously, Night’s a bit unoriginal. The actual figure is pretty basic. Note that I didn’t lose the cape on this one, he never had one.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
I do actually recall getting this one. I liked the “basicness” of this one, so my grandmother bought it for me. He actually didn’t get much playtime as Batman himself. Instead, he had his face and torso covered in black tape so that I could use him as Black Panther with my Avengers. Yeah, I was that kid…
Less than 200 words on that review. Couldn’t replicate that if I tried. I spent more time talking about his name than the actual figure!
For those keeping track, this was another 5 and 5 figure; 5 inches tall and five points of articulation. Some closer looking into this figure and the movie that spawned him has made it clear that he’s actually the closest recreation of the Sonar Suit that the line had to offer, with the exception of the missing cape, of course. I located his giant wings during The Find last summer. They’re certainly goofy, and I can’t say they’re the most thrilling thing ever. This figure was also supposed to have some sort of handheld piece, which was not part of The Find.
I mentioned in the review that this guy spent a lot of his time as Black Panther. In prep for the photo retakes, I cleaned him as best I could, but there’s pretty much no way to remove the white patches. This is why you shouldn’t apply duct tape to your action figures, kids!
