I received a $5 off coupon from Mattel with my Retro-Action DC Super Heroes Kyle Rayner for any DC Universe action figure and it burned one heck of a hole in my pocket. There were quite a few figures that I thought were cool, but I really wanted one from the Batman Family, but there were none to be found and everything else I just wasn't feeling.
A couple of weeks ago Revenge From the Cosmic Ark posted pics of this Arkham City Legacy Edition Batman and I knew that was the one I had been looking for. I scoured my nearest Toys R Us and Target stores, but always left empty handed. I decided to make this a personal mission to find this figure and get it into my life. There was one last Toy R Us I needed to hit. It is clear across town for me, but I had so much luck at getting toys I had been looking for at that store I decided to go check it out.
I was alone, I took a ride, I didn't know, what I would find there, another road where maybe I could see another kind of toy there.
Ooh, then I suddenly see you, Ooh, did I tell you I need you, every single day of my life.
Ooh, you were meant to be near me, Ooh, and I want you hear me say we'll be together every day, got to get you into my life.
Can you tell I really like this Batman action figure? I am also no doubt a Beatles fan.

I think this figure is fangasmic! From the packaging to the sclupting of the figure. Matttel did a great job.
