Beware the Batman McDonalds Happy Meal Toys

LOL, I stumbled onto this on Youtube, I thought Anarky might enjoy this. :batlol: The batcycle is kind of neat. As is the Batmobile. Takes me back to when they did the Batman Returns Happy Meal toys. :batlol:

I still like the Lego Batman dudes McDonald's did a little better, but these aren't bad. The Batcycle is pretty cool, and I would've gone nuts for that flying Batman back when I was a kid. It's a shame Mickey D's didn't put this much effort into their YJ finger-boards!

I actually thought the Young Justice finger boards were really well made for what they were. I was expecting cheap stickers.

So far I've found 4 out of six of these guys. The Batcycle is easily the best. Wish there was a villain or two, as they sort of remind me of those great Batman: The Animated Series Happy Meal toys that came out around 1992 or 93.

Well Young Justice did have their own McDonalds Happy Meal figures, too. They were pretty close to these ones, actually. Have you guys seen these before? :batgrin:

Also, here's a video review on the old Batman TAS Happy Meal toys. I actually remember these very well!



Lastly, I never even knew about this but (to me anyway) this looks like by far one of the biggest Happy Meal Toy set out of all of these. The Brave and the Bold miniatures sets. There's 24 figurines in all. Here's another review by FastFoodToyReviews on Youtube.

I have the Batman and Robin from the Young Justice set, and am only missing Batman from the Batman: The Animated Series set. I used to have him, and then my parents' dog discovered him on a lower shelf one day. Keep meaning to get a replacement, as the toy was destroyed over a decade ago.

I have the Brave and the Bold toys as well, but they're really cheap. The cars don't even have wheels, and the paint apps are extremely minimal (check out Batman's gray gloves to see what I'm talking about). I would have preferred them to make six larger toys than having three poorly painted figures in each pack.

Would loved to have gotten those Young Justice happy meal prizes. I don't think they had them here though or at least I didn't see them...

Thanks for the video, Chris.

I did have fun walking into mcdonalds and getting these guys. (Yay for letting ppl just buy toys!) I did end up getting #1 on eBay but my favorite part of the set was seeing Anarky on the happy meal box I got too. I'm still so happy about it

I'm surprised there aren't any figures of the villains, actually. Odd. :batconfused:

I saw the YOUNG JUSTICE Happy Meal figs and bought Bats and Supes...though i was late to the party and missed the rest. But again, poor promotion on Mattel's part, even working with the largest fast food chain in the known universe; disappointing.

I've never seen those YJ figures! Man, they look awesome...I'll have to track 'em down on Ebay now. I've got the full set of Brave and the Bold figures, though, and they're pretty cool.
