Scupting - ***
One thing this two pack does well is highlight the differences between the
more current comic style of Batman, and the animated style of
Batman. Both sculpts capture the character very well for its
Paint - **1/2
The color schemes on both of these stand out from the average
repaint. No funky colors, no weird accessories (although it'd be
nice if they had SOME), but rather straight forward colors that look good
on Bats. Some folks might not like the lighter blue, but I think
it's fairly striking.
The Gotham City Adventures Batman with the original
This two pack consists of the Gotham City Adventures (GCA) Batman, a
repaint of the Detective Batman from the New Batman Adventures series, and the Knight Watch (KW)
Batman, a repaint of the first Total Justice Batman.
Packaging - *
Not much you can say at all about this packaging, other than it holds the
toys. Very plain, very cost effective.
Articulation - **
Both figures feature Kenner's standard five points of articulation - neck,
shoulders, hips. The GCA Batman has a weakness however - he has a
very hard time standing up on his own. This is due to the very small
ankles on this style of animated figure.

Value - ***
At $5, this is a very good value pack. You're getting two nice
Batman variations, slightly more desireable since they are a store
exclusive, for one very reasonable price.
Accessories - BUZZZTTTT!
They get the big goose egg here. While I'm not interested in goofy
accessories, a batarang or two wouldn't have killed them.
Overall - **
This set is a must for serious Bat-freaks. As a store exclusive, and
as decent repaints of Batman, along with a good value to parents,
its likely to be popular with kids, making it a quicker sell out than many
of the other World of Batman figures. And for the customizer, the
GCA Batman has great potential. However, the casual buyer of Bats
shouldn't lose any sleep if they miss out on this one.
