Batman & Robin Merchandise Review - Ice Blast Mr Freeze figure from Kenner

Back to the Kenner reviews with this early Mr Freeze figure. I'm fairly certain this was the first Mr Freeze figure they put out for the movie toy line. As you can see it's a long way from what Arnie ended up looking like in the finished film and is likely based on some early concept art.

I don't know about you but I actually prefer this to what we got in the film. It's very reminiscent of the blue suit he wore in the Animated Series and has similar red goggles.

I'm also a total sucker for transculent figures and this one has see through arms and torso which admittedly makes no sense but is still and awesome look.

I'm not totally sold on the weird blaster. It's kind of flimsy but I do like the rocket boosters. Very cool that you can put them either on his legs or back.

If you're not fussed about figures looking completely accurate to the movie I recommend this one.
