Kenner 1997 #64276 Batman & Robin Batcave Micro Playset - Pt 2

We're finishing off our look at the Kenner MicroVerse Batcave. This et was a licensed tie-in to the not-well-received 'Batman and Robin' movie of 1997. I imagine in some people's eyes, this playset probably has more value than the movie LOL Oh well. I look at the movie as just a nice Batman flick for the kids. Even though there's some things in it that I'm not terribly crazy about it's not the worst movie ever made (can anyone say, 'Attack of The Killer Tomatoes'?) Besides, the movie gave us cool toys, right?  

Today's post highlights the interior design of the set and tomorrow we'll show the operating features more fully. The playset is modular with the 'cave' comprising the bottom half and 'Gotham' the top half. My toy, while the box was rough, was in good shape and complete. The set consists of:

-The Cave
-Gotham City
-Lookout tower
-A separate 'museum' floor
-Batman figure
-Robin figure
-Mr. Freeze figure


-Figures are  3/4" (1.9cm) H
-Batmobile is 2 1/2" (6.4cm) L
-Freezemobile 2" (5.1cm) L
-Batcave bottom (folded) 6 1/2" (16.5cm) W x 5 1/4" (13.3cm) D x 4 1/4" (10.8cm) H / (extended) 16" (40.6cm)
-Gotham (folded) 3 3/4" (9.5cm) W x 4 1/8" (10.5cm) D x 2 5/8" (6.7cm) H / (extended) 101/4" (26cm)
-Overall height of the playset (with tower attached)10 1/2" (26.7cm)

The hidden chamber below the museum floor is designed to hold the Freezemobile. The Batmobile is too long to fit inside. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Some of the shots were made in a way that the more industious reader could download and turn into backdrops, perhaps even combining several side-by-side to form a panorama shot
