Welcome to the first Bite-sized Reviews. I've got a huge action figure collection. I really like toys and they were always part of the Bin from Day 1. I wanted to do them proper justice and write the long reviews I was known for. I can't. So I offer these quick reviews from my extensive collection. Some of these figures are old and sold out everywhere. Eventually, I'll catch up with new toys. When I already have a digital pic taken, I'll post that instead of the generic product shot from the manufacturer.

This is the Robin that never was. Older, mature and very colourful. This design is one of his best costume ever. And the figure captures his unique look perfectly.

The Earth 2 Robin Action Figure features multiple points of articulation, includes a CRISIS-themed display base, and is packaged in a 4-color blister.

My personal copy of this figure has but one right and one left foot. I know it's silly, but there were reports that the Chinese factory have fabricated several Robins action figures with either two left or two right feet. The head on this action figure is way too small in comparison to the rest of the body.


Rating: 7/10
