Is the Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends Batwing Action Figure Worth Buying?
This is a fantastic updated version of the Batwing unlike many that have come before it. It looks sleek and high-tech, just like any inventions of Bruce Wayne’s should! This allows children to engage their imaginations as the caped crusader flies above the streets of Gotham looking for anyone evil-doers or mischief makers that might be out to cause harm. The handle which doubles as a trigger for firing the projectiles is a nice way of controlling the Batwing in flight and makes it easy for small hands to come to grips with the toy.
The Batman figure is particularly well detailed, and the colouring matches that of the Batman version we are likely to see in the upcoming Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice film. This is an important feature, as both that film and the following Suicide Squad film will feature Batman in his new Batsuit, and children will want to have toys that most accurately represent the hero they see on the big screen.
For many children, this Imaginext Batwing will be seen more as an accessory to the DC Super Friends collection than as a standalone toy, but that shouldn’t take away from how good it is. This is a well-made and durable toy that represents a fairly accurate version of a loved Batman vehicle. The Batwing itself will also feature in the new film, making it even more attractive to young fans. At this price, this is an absolute steal.
