For the first time ever, the Imaginext team is heading to New York Comic Con with an action-packed show exclusive that brand fans and Batman lovers alike will not want to miss. This October, Imaginext is bringing Batman fanatics into the world of Gotham City with a limited-edition version of their DC SUPER FRIENDS BATBOT XTREME that will be available exclusively to NYCC attendees.
The Imaginext DC SUPER FRIENDS BATBOT XTREME is a direct nod to 2015’s “Superheavy” Batman story arc in BATMAN #40 to BATMAN #46, during which Commissioner Gordon steps into the role of Batman using a special mechanical bat-suit after Bruce Wayne is presumed dead and can’t perform Batman’s duties. Batbot Xtreme truly takes the Batman robo-suit from the series and gives it a larger than life twist in the Imaginext style.
Coinciding with the upcoming 10-year anniversary of the Imaginext and DC Super Friends partnership, this limited edition Imaginext DC SUPER FRIENDS BATBOT XTREME is painted in premium metallic for a more authentic and deluxe version of the ultimate Batman toy. Exclusive New York Comic Con packaging features lights and sounds built into a fully immersive Batcave experience, offering the perfect backdrop for your entire Batman collection.
Just like the original version, the NYCC exclusive stands over 2-feet tall and features everything a child – or fanboy – could want, including huge bat wings and controllable punching fists, projectile launchers, a Batman voice changer, a multi-level playset, and of course a Batman figure and vehicle.
Fans looking to snag a NYCC exclusive Imaginext DC SUPER FRIENDS BATBOT XTREME will have to act fast! Retailing for $250, Imaginext has only produced 300 copies of the collectors’ edition. Here’s how you can get one:
- NYCC EXCLUSIVE LOTTERY: Launching on September 14, 225 limited edition Batbots will be up for grabs through the official NYCC lottery.
