Ace the Bathound from Krypto the Superdog Animated and Fisher-Price

Constant Reader John aka Jboy asked on yesterday's post "Have they made a official Ace figure? I have seen Krypto but I don't remember seeing one of the Bathound."

The answer, John, is 'Yes!' There was one packaged with a Batman Beyond action figure, but that was the Ace of Batman Beyond continuity. There was also one packaged with a Golden Age Batgirl and Batwoman made by DC Direct. Then there was this one from the Krypto the Superdog cartoon. In fact, I believe there were a few versions of Ace the Bathound made back in 2006 for the Krypto the Superdog cartoon. The only one I picked up was this one, which also came with an 'Ace Racer' skate-type vehicle and Bud and Lou, Harley Quinn's Hyenas.

Unfortunately my Bud and Lou have been lost to time as I let my kids play with them back in the day. But I still have Ace and his Ace Racer!

This was the only toy I picked up from the short lived Krypto the Superdog cartoon, but looking back, I wish I had grabbed them all. Or at least a Krypto! But if I recall correctly, the series had lots of cumbersome action features, and this specific set was just the figures, clean and simple. Which is how I like my action figures.

Playmobil Ace the Bat-Hound

Months ago I picked up a bunch of Playmobil stuff from a garage sale, and included in the mix was a Playmobil German Shepherd. Of course I immediately made plans to make him into Ace the Bathound, but it took me a while to get around to it.

Ace first appeared in Batman #92 (June 1955). Unlike later iterations, Ace did not originally have a cape - he only wore a cowl and a collar with a batsymbol dog tag.

I painted the cowl on him with some automobile touch-up paint. I did the same thing with my LEGO Ace the Bathound.

Playmobil Ace the Bathound makes the perfect companion to my Playmobil unmasked Batman!

My intern felt Ace needed a friend, so she made me take this picture with his Bulldog buddy. Fighting crime, one bite to the buttocks at a time!
