This is my second review of the kits in the series of figures from the 60's television series Batman. As I wrote in my review of the Batman figure, I grew up in the 60's and remember the craze the show had, just like The Simpsons did today, as the popular celebrities either played villains or made cameo appearances. As for this kit, they did an excellent job with this as they did with the Batman kit. The instructions are very detailed. The painting instructions are clear. As I explained in my Batman review I lost my home in a fire and are starting over with my model collection. I used craft paint from Wal-Mart because the distance to their store is about half of the distance to the nearest hobby shop to me, and I didn't want to get into spraying, except for using flat white paint as a primer. The only problem I had in building this kit was some of the arm parts were warped slightly and I had to clamp them together. The kit has three options for Robin's right arm. You can build him either throwing the Batarang, throwing a punch, or holding his hand up just like his left hand. I chose the Batarang as Batman is holding one, and it looks like they are working together. The left arm can be glued in position, or left free to rotate. The artist who did the faces on these kits did an outstanding job, as just like the Batman kit looks like Adam West, the Robin kit looks like Burt Ward, who played Robin in the television series. I just ordered the Penguin kit, and I can't wait to start build it. This is an excellent series, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the kits.
