Not wanting to rush Little G-Mans early years, I secretly can’t wait for him to be old enough to dress up as his favourite super hero and play in the garden with figurines – something I’ve fond memories of doing when I was a kid.
Those hot summer days and the smell of tarmac melting while I played in the soil with my plastic soldiers as my older brother spent hours meticulously building tanks, planes and other Airfix kits.
All of these happy memories came flooding back when we returned from holiday to find our postman had delivered the DC Comics Batman Vs Superman Scenery Pack for me to review.
My inner desire to be a Super Hero once again has been unleashed!
What is the Batman Vs Superman Scenery Pack?
The day will come when the two greatest heroes of the DC Universe face off against each other. Superman versus Batman.
No one can predict how this fight will turn out. Their joint heroic deeds during the times of the Justice League are forgotten when the two confront each other as bitter enemies.
Superman, with his mighty power and speed against the Dark Knight Batman, who does not actually possess any superpowers. An unequal battle? No one knows.
Following on from the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film which was released 25 March, these figures form part of The Justice League Big Set, licensed to Schleich. The Justice League is the ultimate team of superheroes. Together they fight against the super villain Darkseid, who wants to destroy the world.
The details found on these figures remind me of the Airfix models my brother used to build when we were kids. So much time and effort has been taken to the details reflect the characters in the film making them look like the real McCoy.
For collectible purposes this Scenery Pack, along with the additional figures from Schleich, is a fantastic additional to anyones collection. Mounted in a box against a backdrop depicting a city scape, they would look the part on any bedroom bookshelf, young or old.
Lets cut to the chase, there isn’t anything “bad” about these figures, however if you buy them with the intention of them becoming “toys” rather than collectibles then there are a few things to bear in mind.
Sadly they aren’t suitable for children under 3 years, meaning Little G-Man has a bit of growing up before he’s allowed to get his fingers on them.
If the Batman Vs Superman figures end up being played with, then the detail in the hand painted figures is likely to suffer somewhat. Both figures are “mounted” on a base resembling rubble or rough ground which could potentially make it a little difficult to play with. Having said that, childrens imaginations will run wild nonetheless.
There is no doubt that any sane Dad will love these figures as will their little ones. Whether they get played with, after all thats the idea with toys, or kept on a shelf in a bedroom, the hand finished painting really does set them apart from the usual mass produced toys we see.
At RRP £14.99 (currently £12.99 in Tesco) the Batman Vs Superman Scenery Pack isn’t cheap, but they are very high quality and are sure to last a very long time so well worth the investment.
Now I just need to get my hands on Aquaman, Cyborg, Flash, Green Lanter and Wonder Woman!
