McDonald’s Batman: Brave and The Bold Round Two

Salutations Speed Readers,

Last Saturday McDonald’s started it’s second Batman: Brave and the Bold Happy Meal promotion! Just like the Young Justice Happy Meal promotion from a couple months ago this set will feature two Flash-related characters: Barry Allen’s version of The Flash and Gorilla Grodd, one of the Scarlet Speedster’s greatest villains. Unlike the Young Justice promotion I didn’t feel like dealing with McDonald’s at all. So I went the evilBay route. Unfortunately when I wanted them no one was selling just Grodd and Flash (Since they come in two different sets) so I just went ahead and purchased all eight of the sets. I’m only going to show the Flash-related ones right now but if enough of you want to see the rest I may post them at a future time. Check ’em out:

The seller was kind enough to include the Happy Meal box along with the sets.

And a couple more pics of Barry and Grodd:

As you can see they didn’t really fill in the details. Flash’s wings on his cowl are just blotches of paint and although they included the lightning details on his forearms and belt they neglected to fill them in with paint. Grodd isn’t that big of a deal, he is just missing some minor details on the helmet which I wouldn’t realistically expect anyway. Also whereas the initial Brave and the Bold line and even the Young Justice line from a couple months ago were fairly large and featured some decent details where it counted, it looks like they opted for quantity over quality this time around and released 24 different toys. Kids get more bang for their buck with three smaller toys in one package instead of just the standard one.

Just for comparison:

Yep, pretty tiny. Still not bad figures, and it is always good to see some more mainstream Flash love.

Anyone else gotten their hands on these guys yet?

Thanks for reading,

Devin “Flash” Johnson

    Flash fans are so spoiled! “Oh, ANOTHER Flash related McDonalds Happy Meal toy. Again? Didn’t we just have one a couple months ago?” Meanwhile, Firestorm fans are begging for merchandise! When we finally get a Firestorm Happy Meal toy, he’s painted like Kid Flash! WTF!?!?

    All kidding aside, the Flash toys look great! Anything that gets the Speedster in the general public’s hands is great!

    This is the set my daughter wants most because it includes the Flash (one of her favorite superheroes.) I’ve hit four different McDs since the promo started and can only find the first set with the Penguin so far!

    I think Iā€™m skipping these. My wife is known for dropping happymeal toys on my desk though, so I might end up with them anyway.

    I can’t see going to McD’s 50+ times to get me a Barry.

    But I like the size and look of the toys.

    Eh…pass. I prefer quality over quantity. Little toy looks like his arms are way to big for his tiny head. (No comments from the peanut gallery! I like Barry! Not his fault fast food places have no sense of proportion!)

    Did anyone else order the Barry Allen statue (same running position as this McD toy) that’s coming out soon? I keep checking sites to see when it’s actually going to be released. Anxious for it’s arrival.

      So I check again and there it is! DCU Online Flash based on the art of Jim Lee debuts June 22. gimmee-gimmee-gimmee *sigh* Seems like forever ago that I ordered it. Must be what the song meant by “Seems so slow…” šŸ˜€

    Never could find the Happy Meal Captain Cold (despite hitting many McDs in several towns), so I’m not going to bother with these. Too much hassle.
