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!


  1. Have they made a official Ace figure? I have seen Krypto but I don't remember seeing one of the Bathound.
