The movie Batman (1989) was quite a success. I remember my father took me to the cinema to watch it although I was stil very young. The movie had no toy merchandise available in Spain (or if there was, I cannot remember it). Two years later came Batman Returns, and those toys were neither available in Spain, but that same year 1992, a cartoon series was planned and aired in the States and some other countries.

Those figures were available in Spain as well as in most European countries. The figure presented today belong to this series, and, as you can see in the backcard, the figures made were several versions of Batman and Robin, and several villains.

The toyline was renamed several times in 1993 and 1994, like "The Animated Series: Crime Squad", "The Adventures of Batman and Robin" and "The Adventures of Batman and Robin: D.U.O. Force". Many figures from one line or the other were made from the same cast than previous figures, and also the accesories were reused or shared from/with other toylines like Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Nevertheless each line brought a few new casts to extend the list of characters.

I am not very interested in this toyline, but I have a few figures. Unfortunately none of them is complete with all accesories. Maybe I can complete some before I publish the next entry about this toyline.

  • Name: POISON IVY
  • Toy Line: Batman the Animated Series (Wave 1)
  • Year: 1992
  • Company: Kenner (U.S.A.)
  • Size of the figures: Around 8.5 cm (3.25'')


  1. Very nice european blister !
    For "the adventures of Batman and Robin", it's in fact the toy line for the Batman New Adventures serie.
    Many people consider it as the foutrth season of Batman TAS, but it's a bit differents, with some changes in some characters design.

    1. Salut Romain!
      Si je comprends bien, cette figurine n'appartient pas à la première série, comme je pensais... je ne connais pas les jouets de Batman trés bien, donc merci pour l'information!
