Pros:Love the two-pack character sets; simple and basic; great alternate version of Joker

Cons:Could be a bit cheaper; flies off the shelves

The Bottom Line: Robin & The Joker is a great two-pack set to build an army. Having characters availble in this manner will help generate more interest without committing to huge sets.


In Batman world, there is no one more insidious than the Joker. The only thing that is predictable about this manic is his unpredictable nature. Thankfully, Batman has a partner to help him in time of need as Robin makes up the other half of the famous Dynamic Duo. Fisher-Price's new TRIO DC Super Friends series adds another two-pack to the collection with Robin & The Joker.

Robin is always portrayed in a cheerful manner. He is easily recognizable in his red and green outfit that has become a trademark for this character. But if you are looking for short pants on Robin, he has given up that style a long time ago.  His red tunic is detailed with yellow buttons and his "R" insignia on one side of his breast. He does wear short sleeves so he is showing some skin in his arms. But his hands are covered with his green gloves. In fact the bottom half of Robin is all green except for his yellow belt. I like the expression n his face because it screams youthful. Even his eyes are wide-eyed and he sports a good smile. The only thing missing is his cape and I'm trying to figure out why all these smaller versions of Robin don't have any at all.

The Joker is a walking caricature brought to life. This is an alternate version of the character for this line. He has is trademarked green hair which is expertly sculpted to give it that noticeable Joker flair. His face is white but he is wearing sunglasses. Even the glasses are kooky with one square lens and one circle lens. He does have is wicked smile highlighted with red lipstick. Instead of wearing his familiar purple suit, Joker has on a white jacket with green bowtie and flower lapel. He, too, is always wearing green gloves. The bottom half has his purple pants with black shoes. I don't know he is trying to be chic or a mad scientist, but I do like this different appearance from the Clown Prince of Crime.

Both figures don't move at all except in the arms. The feet are larger than normal to help them snap onto a block. In fact the feet are almost claw-like in nature once attached to any block.

TRIO blocks are roughly about 1" x 1" all around. The basic blocks snap together to build bigger things. The figures are just a tad taller than the blocks. So included with this set are two basic building blocks, one coloured red and one coloured purple. The red one, in particular, has a capture claw attached to the block with string. This claw fits around the other block quite nicely just so to help Robin capture the Joker.

These two-pack sets cost $6.00 and can be found at major retail stores. I've found the biggest stockpile to be at Toys ‘R' Us but even they have a tough time keeping these sets on the shelf because they are popular.

I do appreciate that, so far, Fisher-Price has taken care in not repeating figures in every set. While there may be multiple versions of Batman and Robin, they are different in some manner so no two are alike. At least this is what I have seen so far. It makes these sets more unique and valuable as result.

Robin & The Joker from the TRIO DC Super Friends collection continues the hero and villain two-pack sets. My son is really enjoys this line especially the characters. They are a great size and uniquely made. They are also, dare I say, quite cute. I appreciate that someone was thinking about the characters and realize you don't always needed a huge playset in order to have some fun. This is definitely a great army builder and a good way to introduce young ones into the world of TRIO.
