Hot Toys is showing off two brand new figures, both dedicated to one of my favorite movies of all times, Batman Forever. Whether or not you think it’s a good installment in the wild world of Batman movies isn’t the conversation. It’s that the 90s were awesome, this movie is a fun and hilarious romp, and Val Kilmer’s face while he yells “Harvey! I’m Batman!” will always be one of my favorite movie moments. Jim Carrey playing Jim Carrey in a Riddler onesie is fun as hell, and Sugar and Spice made tingly thoughts happen. Nicole Kidman was actually good in this film. Batman Forever had it all.
But one thing the Robin figure has is enough noticeable… ahem… enthusiasm for all of us. I’m not even kidding, the bulge on the Robin figure made me blush. Bro, who isn’t fighting without a cup on?! Batman looks regular, what is the explanation for so much excite-bike?!?! Trust, it’s not that I think it’s inappropriate or anything. Bulge away, Robin. But with one-eyed-willy looking at us so… explicitly… I think it’s something we can all have a chuckle about. These are still great looking toys.
