Batman 1989 – Toybiz – Action Figure Review – #Batman80 Column

To commemorate the 80th anniversary of Batman (#Batman80, #LongLiveTheBat), AFJ has decided to join in the fun with columns, lists, and reviews from now until Batman Day (Sept. 15th, 2019). The incredible thing about 80 years of Batman in pop culture is that we can literally feature anything from comics to movies to Egg-Head. Yes, Egg-Head (Google him Millenials). Today, we turn our attention back to 1989 and Toybiz's Batman action figure. Enjoy Junkies! #AFJ4LIFE

The Toybiz release of a Batman 1989 action figure was a pretty big deal. This was the first modern-day Batman action figure. It seems hard to believe, now, but the only Batman figures people had been the ones from the old SuperPowers Kenner Collection (or ancient Megos). With the release of Batman, in his movie likeness, as well as The Joker, Bob the Goon, the Batmobile, the Bat Cave, and the Batwing, a whole new world of toys had arrived. With that also came a whole new world of "movie toys" that had not been seen since the days of Kenner's Star Wars figures. This Batman certainly wasn't the best Batman figure, but he has a special place in all our hearts, as does the Summer of 1989. #AFJ4LIFE
