The build:

The build for this model is straightforward and results in a reasonably sturdy model that is completely playable with. As long as you don’t throw it on the floor… Whoops.

The bat turns out nice and smooth on the outside, except on the wings, so he looks great too.

There is some good articulation in his feet, ears and wings which means you can pose him. It would have been nice to see a movable head though, akin to some of the Mixels.

The bat comes with a small pumpkin that he can hang onto.

You can also make him look like he’s hugging himself! So cute!

Overall:

This is a great little seasonal model to bring out once a year at Halloween. He’s cute and not at all scary, and will look great by himself or with some others in a little mantelpiece colony! He’s a fairly easy build and the kids would get on great with it!
