KAPOW! 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! 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 (WHOOSH!) and controllable punching fists (POW!), projectile launchers (BAM!), 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. Registering for the lottery will guarantee that you are able to purchase a Batbot during the show.
Lottery purchased Batbots will be shipped to you, courtesy of Imaginext.
In-booth sales – Each day during NYCC, 10 additional Batbots will be sold on a first come, first serve basis that you can walk away with that day.
In-booth raffle – Each day, 1 limited edition Batbot will be raffled off to attendees who share a social post from the Imaginext booth. Visit booth #326 on the show floor for more details.
New York Comic Con will take place at the Javits Center in NYC on October 5-8, 2017. I hope to see you there! I’ll be stopping by the IMAGINEXT Booth to speak with the designers. Don’t worry; if you are unable to get your hands on the NYCC exclusive, you can still find the original Batbot Xtreme now at Toys R Us, Target, and Amazon.com for $109.99.
