Batman & Robin Merchandise Review - Frostbite figure from Kenner

Henchmen are an essential element of many Batman stories. Who can forget Jack Napier's "number one guy" Bob the goon? (Who got a figure from the Toybiz line). Or Two Face's hulking henchmen with their neon Tommy guns? (Who didn't get a figure but maybe show have).

Of course the Batman & Robin movie had the ultra silly idea to give Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mr Freeze a "hockey team from hell". And we did at least get one figure named Frostbite. I'm not 100% sure he's meant to be the same character as Frosty (the henchman who get frozen by Freeze for interrupting the movie). 

Anyway, it's a decent sculpt. He's got his mask down and has this weird backpack/luge/armour thing that folds in lots of different directions. I've got to admit this one had me puzzled. There's no instructions for how this works.

But anyway, you can either fire the hockey sticks or put them in his hands as weapons. And that's enough for me. I'm glad we got a henchman and maybe if I get bored I'll buy a few of them, paint them slightly different colours and build a little army.
