TGIF Toys: Futuristic Bat-villains on the loose!!!!
This is not your father's Joker ... maybe your grandkid's, instead. This is a member of the Jokerz gang from a half-century in the future, to be exact, along with Inque, Derek Powers / Blight, and a few Batmen Beyond to keep 'em in line!
This fun gang is from Burger King’s 2000 Kids’ Meal toys, in celebration of the "Batman Beyond" show when it was in its second season on the Kids WB! We shot this photo for our BRBTV Report on the show: Inque is a keychain, the Jokerz' bike spins off the pad with a pull cord, and Derek Powers' "suit" breaks in half to reveal the glowing supervillain within. Oh, and that red top-thingie spins and lights up, if we recall correctly (the toys are now safely in storage!).
All in all, sooooo worth multiple trips to Burger King a decade ago ...
