Legends of Batman: Future Batman

I've been posting the clip-and-collect newspaper details from Toy Biz's DC Superheroes action figure packages these last several Thursdays -- and I'll continue the look at old DC toys with this, the card that came with Kenner's Legends of Batman Future Batman.  That's right -- before Batman Beyond was a glimmer in Paul Dini's eye, this Future Batman donned "an armored cowl and mask, pop-up wings . . . and a laser blaster!"  This figure remains on my display shelf, because the design isn't too different from either the Batman we see in Kingdom Come or the robot bats in Grant Morrison's recent issues of Batman, Incorporated.
