There is something awesome about blind boxed figures. I get sucked into buying them because of the thrill factor of not know what you are getting. While on a recent trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain, I happened upon these exclusive Batman blind box vinyl figures.
Yes, the only place to get them is at one of the Six Flags theme parks across the US.
Priced at $7.99 a box, there are six figures in the DC Comics Design Gallery set consisting of three different versions of Batman, Bane, Harley Quinn and the “rare” Joker figure. Standing at 3 inches tall, these figures have articulation at the neck and arms. The basic shape of the head have “Batman ears,” regardless of the character.
The designs are cute in a simplistic yet stylized way. They remind me of figures like Vinylmation, where it is a basic figure shape with a unique design.
While I was at Magic Mountain, I didn’t see these figures in every shop I went in to, so you may have to keep an eye out and do a little hunting. I don’t know how committed Six Flags is to the blind box vinyl figure game, but I do hope they continue this line and branch out into other DC Universe characters like Superman and Wonder Woman.
