DC Comics The Strange Lives of Batman Action Figures (Price $80.00)

Mattel The Strange Lives of Batman - thumb

It’s the 80th anniversary for Batman, and the popular DC superhero is having a big presence at SDCC this year. There’s the ultimate The Batman Experience at the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park including VR skydiving. As for the toys, they are going big, and we do mean big. The DC Comics The Strange Lives of Batman Action Figures package is huge and features Batman action figures from DC’s silver age. It includes Silver Age Batman, Negative Batman, Zebra-Batman and Rainbow Batman. Each comes with their own special style, cloth cape and 23 points of articulation. To get a sense of how big the package is, here’s the box next to the other toy packaging.

Inside the package is the actual content encased inside a see-through plastic sleeve.

Removing the sleeve gets you closer the action figures in all their glory, complete with an artwork of Robin as he fills us in on what Batman is about to do.

Overall, the outside and inside packaging capture the spirit of comic books with the panels, each figure having a unique pose and comic book art background.

Hot Wheels Armored Batmobile Vehicle (Price: $25.00)

Next up is the Hot Wheels Armored Batmobile Vehicle that’s taken straight out of Tim Burton’s Batman. It includes a tiny Batman figure and the armored and regular version of the Batmobile. The packaging comes with an outer box that is nostalgic for those who have ever owned a Batman VHS tape (see bottom left). When opening the box, you’ll be treated with a cardboard sleeve that teases the armored design with a black and white aesthetic (see bottom right).

And the fun doesn’t stop there. The innermost packaging can be used as a display, and there are two holes at the top and bottom. If you push from the bottom or top, the inside display will slide, giving you the illusion that the Batmobile is transforming before your very eyes. Tada!

Jurassic World Legacy Collection John Hammond (Price: $15.00)

The Jurassic World Legacy Collection John Hammond action figure features the legend from the first Jurassic Park film, the pioneer who helped bring dinosaurs to life in the film’s universe. The Hammond action figure includes his very own cane and articulation. The accessories include a baby dinosaur hatching and another dinosaur egg. The outside packaging is a special one since you can open the gate to reveal the toy inside.
