It's been a while but damn right i have a bunch of reviews coming in starting with the "boy wonder" over here. I got him from Big Boys Toys Store by the way and i believe they still have some units available in their Glorietta 2 and Greenhills branches. Anyway, this is my first "outdoor" review and, possibly, the first time i'll rate a MALE Play Arts Kai figure using the "Fist Bite" system. LOL
|And if you're there during the review checking out my pics YOU'LL KNOW WHY, haha, right Bryan?|
I haven't played the new Arkham game: Arkham Knight so i don't know Robin's full role here but I do know the identity of that so-called "Arkham Knight." Anyway, let's proceed...
For me the best thing about this particular Robin figure? Shit-ton of accessories. As Bryan pointed out, he's a lot more packed than the previous Robin (Arkham Origins?) and i love that Assassin's creed removable hood/hairpiece combo here though for some reason i have a feeling i saw this Robin already...recently...

|Spartans...what is your occupation?!|
At first glance i thought i got 2 right feet but upon closer inspection this is not the case, the ball joint is just really out of position and i can't move it. -1 SQEX Quality Control. Also, i got 2 open palm left hands so if any of you buys a Robin with 2 open palm right hands you know where to find me. -2 SQEX for messing up with the packing of accessories again.
Since i haven't played the game, I still don't get why he's got 2 shields. Does flapping them enable Robin to fly? Or flail around like a chicken? Can he transform into a one-man-phalanx unit? Where will you put those 2 shields when they're not in use? Aren't they a bit heavy (and silly) to be carried around all the time? Why can't Batman use one? Won't Robin lend 1 to him? Am i overthinking a simple extra accessory? tell me, damn it, TELL ME!!!
|Aaaaannnnndddd...here's me yesterday...|
I heard the AK Batman is really good so i'm looking forward to reviewing him, if you got one, lucky you, now get up and get this Robin will ya?
