New Toy Gives Batman His Own Giant Robot

In Tim Burton’s first Batman movie, the Joker famously asked, “Where does he get those wonderful toys?” As seen at this year’s Toyfair, Batman has a new weapon against the Clown Prince of Crime, and it may be his biggest toy to date!

Via io9, Fisher-Price has unveiled the BatBot Xtreme, Batman’s personal giant robot. Readers of Scott Snyder’s Batman run may recognize some of the design from the Batman robot that James Gordon used when he briefly stepped into the role during Bruce Wayne’s absence. But that Batman robot wasn’t the size of a city building…

Obviously, this toy was made with very young fans in mind. Although, at 28-inches tall, it may be bigger than some of the kids who want to play with it! Also, we have to ask: why was only Harley Quinn hit by the missile in this ad? Seems like a bit of overkill from Fisher-Price’s Dark Knight.

The thing about Gotham City is that it’s all about the escalation. Batman’s reign over the city gave rise to the costumed villains like the Joker, Riddler, and Two-Face. If Batman ever did get a giant crime fighting robot, how long do you think it would be before the villains got giant robots of their own? As a matter of fact, there is already a giant robot for the Joker, although it wasn’t actually piloted by the Joker himself. It appeared during the same stretch of time when Gordon was running around with the Batman robot.

Joker's Giant Robot

What do you think, people? Should Fisher-Price give the Joker his own giant robot toy to fight the BatBot Xtreme? Let them fight, and then share your thoughts in the comment section below!
