Funko 9POA Batman 1966 TV Series Batman and Robin Action Figures with Batmobile VehicleIt is a sensible gift set. Batman and Robin Action Figures with Batmobile Vehicle is the must-have element of this entire line - you could stop here and be happy, or keep collecting and get obscure villains like King Tut and Bookworm. Funko did a nice job bringing back the required faces with some obscure ones, so this line could be set apart from Mattel's. (But not Figures Toy Co.'s, they covered more bases already.)

Funko is still dabbling in this new format and clearly finding their sea legs - some of it is gorgeous. Boxed collectors, you're going to love these. Kids, stay away. Collectors, be careful - you've got great products here but there's a very thin rubbery piece around the capes on Batman and Robin that look like they may snap with minimal abuse. I hate to start on a down note, but you don't want to rip these apart. Unless you're a monster.

I can't dump on the sculpting - Funko has good sculptors and the output is nice. However, if you collect 3 3/4-inch action figures you know these things can live or die by color choices. Batman and Robin, like Dale Cooper, are a little pale. The exaggerated lips are striking, and while it doesn't look terrible it could probably look a little more even. Robin's eyes are painted a little strangely, but their masks are fantastic and so are the outfits. Robin may be a bit on the skinny side, but as an idealized Boy Wonder it works. Batman looks a little buffer than Adam West, but not as ripped as most Batman action figures. The proportions are sensible, and the rubbery capes hang on their backs nicely.

Each figure has a ball-jointed peg at the neck, ball-jointed shoulders, plus swivel knees, hips, and knees. They were made to stand or sit, and they do both pretty well. The only roadblock is that the capes can get in the way of sitting in the Batmobile, and it would have been nice to have had swiveling elbows too. They're so close to being perfect - they look about right, per the sculpting you might expect on a similarly sized Hasbro figure. I'd love to see if my Robin's eyes are unusual or not, because they basically feel like toys from an era I missed. That's charming.

Funko 9POA Batman 1966 TV Series Batman and Robin Action Figures with Batmobile VehicleThe Batmobile is very much what you see being what you get. It's a toy car with rolling wheels and no special gimmicks. It's gorgeous, shiny black plastic with red striping and silver in all the right places. The whole Barris Kustoms thing has been replicated nicely with the mutant Lincoln Futura turning into a great toy. As a cheap, roughly 1:18 scale car it's just superb. It feels pretty sturdy, and it looks great. I'm sure there's a missing detail or two, but compared to other Batmobiles I've bought I find it satisfying for the asking price.

Figure/vehicle compatibility isn't fantastic because of the capes. You can get the figures to sit in the car with them on, but it's an awkward fit - the capes are soft, but not so soft that you'll get them to plop their butts down on the black interior. There are no seat belts, which I consider to be an omission of mercy because those things were a hassle on Mattel's car. You can slide the figures in, and if you feel like futzing with it you can get Batman's hand on the wheel. I'd suggest removing his cape first, and you'll need to pop the head off to do that.

This is a tricky one - I think if the head deco was tweaked and you got cloth capes, it would be the must-buy set of the season. I love Batman's multi-hued belt with snazzy two-tone gold belt buckle. I appreciate the sturdy feet and not-too-dynamic pose that allows them to stand on my desk without a fight. If the figures fit in the Batmobile perfectly, I'd jump on it - but as they don't, it's more of a display piece. It's a wonderful boxed toy in a gorgeous package. If you don't get right up in their faces, they look good from a reasonable short distance. Overall I'm more charmed than I was by similarly sized DC figures from Mattel, and the price per piece is certainly reasonable just as it was with Twin Peaks. I'd say go see them up close, and if you like what you see, just be very careful with the capes. You don't want those breaking.
