And now for one of the strangest figures in the Batman Forever line - the Street Biker Robin figure. This came out in the first wave of figures and I remember it sitting on the toy shelves while the other ones slowly sold out. It was a regular feature in bargain bins in late 95.
I can see what they were going for - Chris O'Donnell's version of Robin did have a fancy motorbike and helmet but this looks nothing like the get up he wears in the film. This looks like some gang member from a 70s Neal Adams Batman comic.
Despite disliking it as a kid, I'm fascinated by it now. Mostly I'm curious what Kenner were thinking making a Robin figure without a mask, without a costume. I have a theory that I'll share with you at the end of the video. Enjoy.
