YuMe’s DZNR Blackout Batman and Detective Comics Batman Chibi Plushies Review
Bruce Wayne is celebrating 80 years of success in DC comics, and he’s never looked better! Batman is one of my favorite DC comic superheroes of all time so you can imagine my excitement when I got to know YuMe (via ChizComm) was sending over not ONE but TWO different DZNR Batman Chibi Plushies!
I was provided free DZNR Batman Chibi Plushies for review. The opinions I’ve shared are my own.
Let me just start off by saying that these chibi plushies are incredible!
The box they arrived in was full of black confetti. Resting nicely on top was YuMe’s calling card introducing the DZNR (Designer) 80th Anniversary Celebration for Batman Comics. Their tagline? LONG LIVE THE BAT. A photo of all the currently released Batman Plushies was featured on the card. On the back, there was a brief description of YuMe. The company’s name is inspired by the word ‘to dream’ in Japanse. It’s an award-winning global toy brand that dreams of using imagination, fun, and entertainment to bring people together.
Clipped to the card were three stickers. They were for the Blackout Batman edition, Modern Age Batman, and YuMe Toys. (I’ll be applying them to my laptop, of course!)
For this review, I received the stunning (Limited Edition) “Blackout Batman” which was released on August 26, 2019, and the colorfully vibrant, Walmart Exclusive “Detective Comics” variant which features a number of vintage printed issue covers all over Batman’s cowl, suit, and cape. The chibi plushies stand at 7-inches. They’re the perfect size to proudly create a Batman-inspired display on a shelf without them being overwhelmingly bulky or intrusive.
Beginning with the Blackout Batman, he is very dark and incredibly soft. The chibi features polyester stuffing and polyester fiber. It has the signature black bat on the chest. Batman’s gloves are stiffened plastic, with fists clenched ready to strike down Gotham thugs.
On the DZNR Display box, it reads, “Gotham City’s Bruce Wayne transforms from a billionaire playboy to a self-made superhero who fights crime into there dead of night. The DZNR Blackout Edition form the YuMe series embodies the color that best represents the Dark Knight’s crime-fighting spirit.”
The Detective Comics Batman is a stark contrast to the former. His entire cowl, suit, and cape are flooded with Batman nostalgia. You’ll get to see numerous characters. There’s Joker, the Riddler, and more. The material is polyester stuffing and fiber with stiffened plastic for the gloves.
The DZNR display box reads, “Detective Comics #27 (Printed date of May 1939) featured the first appearance of Batman and would eventually become the star of the title, the cover logo of which is often written as ‘Detective Comics featuring Batman’. The DZNR Detective Comics #27 from the YuMe series takes a deep dive into the illustrations that set the foundation for the development of the Dark Knight’s introduction to the detective world.”
You can tell the stitching is top-notch. These chibi plushies are definitely worth the price tag. But you know what? Don’t just take my word for it! See the quality yourself in the unboxing video I recorded.
Each plush comes in a well-constructed box that showcases the collectible in all its glory.
With the holidays coming up, the DZNR Batman Chibi Plush Series can make for an awesome (and affordable) gift.
As mentioned, you can get them from Walmart or Amazon. They’re available in 7 and 10-inch scales.
Feel free to share your thoughts with us.
