Scribblenauts: Unmasked Series 2 Blind Box Batman and Sinestro

Another birthday present I received was two Scribblenauts Unmasked Series 2 Blind Box figures. My intern picked them out for me and apparently has better luck with this type of thing than I could ever hope for, because I scored the 1939 Batman!

I don't know much about Scribblenauts. I guess it's a video game wherein the protagonist calls in the whole DC roster of villains and heroes and each similarly styled character does something awesome. I guess.

Whatever, any cute stylized Batman is a good addition to my collection, especially when it's based on his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 way back in 1939.

I also ended up with the Green Lantern version of Sinestro. Sinestro was a GL before he went bad, but I don't know if that was how he first appeared or if it was just back-story. Either way, technically, this would be a 'first appearance' Sinestro too! Keen!

Although you can't really access Batman's arms due to the cape, you can see them in there and he's wearing his purple first-appearance gloves too.

GL Sinestro has his Green Lantern ring painted on his hand as well.

Each figure also comes with a base that looks like a notepad. I am sure that is relevant to the Scribblenauts theme (it does have the word 'scribble' in it!) but again, I'm not well versed in the Scribblenauts universe. If you are, feel free to school me in the comments!

And thanks again to my intern for two cool new superheroes to add to my collection!


  1. I've never played the DC comics version, but I had quite a bit of fun with the original Scribblenauts. It's basically a puzzle platformer, except you're able to use pretty much anything to solve the puzzles. Do you think a flamethrower is the best way to take care of the bee blocking your path? Then write "flamethrower" in your notebook, and watch as it appears out of thin air, ready to be equipped by your character.

    Obviously, there are limitations to what words it recognizes, but it's still pretty fun. Besides, nothing beats being able to call forth Cthuhlu and a T-Rex and watching them do battle.

    1. Ah yes, now I remember hearing about the game years ago. Sounds like a lot of fun!
