* Batwave Communicator Handheld Device: The Batman Stand Alone Module with LCD screen and buttons, features VEIL Technology that allows kids to download items and power-ups from the series, The Batman from Warner Bros. Animation. When activated, and in the line of sight of the television, the LCD screen shows engine graphics, diagnostics, weapons systems, as well as allows the child to unlock different vehicle and figure-based games by watching the show. The Batwave Communicator Handheld Device can be used in the vehicle or on the figure to activate different features, or can be removed for use as a handheld game.

Batwave Batman Action Figure: This new Batman(TM) action figure lets kids enjoy real-time play via the Batwave backpack, which features VEIL Technology. When the new animated series from Warner Bros. Animation is aired, the figure "comes to life" as the wings on the backpack pop up and the Batwave chest emblem on the figure lights up when within the line of sight of the TV. The removable module with LCD screen and buttons, allows kids to download items and power ups from the show. VEIL technology also allows kids to unlock different figure-based games and a number of phrases while watching the show. The backpack module can be used to activate a spring-loaded Batarang and LED in the gauntlet, as well as a selection of downloaded weapon sounds.
A.R.P.: $38.99 Age: 4+ Available: October
Batwave Batmobile with Handheld Device: This amazing new Batmobile vehicle "comes to life" like never before when activated via VEIL Technology while a child views the new animated Batman series from Warner Bros. Animation, "The Batman." Once activated, LED headlights turn on, as do its blue side and fin lights, engine lights as well as a "starting up" light and rumble rack. The Batmobile vehicle has a "turbo" mode, which sees the rear fenders pop out sideways to expose missile pods and engine details, and the wings popping-out from under the vehicle -- all with an accompanying sound and force feedback. The vehicle comes with red LED's in the front to simulate lasers and rockets which are "captured" from the show, and paid-off in lights, sounds and force feedback. The removable Module with LCD screen and buttons, allows kids to download items and power ups from the show. The screen also shows engine graphics, diagnostics, weapon systems, and allows the kid to unlock different vehicle based games by tuning into the show. When left in the vehicle the Module can activate different features, or can be removed for use as a handheld game.
A.R.P.: $51.99 Age: 4+ Available: October
