#54: Batman Classic TV Series - The Riddler

Our next villain from the Batman Classic TV Series figures is the Riddler. Based on the Frank Gorshin (riddle me this: could there be a John Astin version in the works?) version of the character, it's kind of weird seeing Mattel's take on a more realistically proportioned figure. What I'm getting at is that he's really thin, and it takes some getting used to. The good news is that the ab crunch joint has returned! Riddler doesn't include any accessories, and his hands are both fists, so he can't borrow anyone else's.

The Riddler does include a base with a collector card that can be plugged into it. This one features a more generic "Kapow!" sound effect. Unfortunately, the collector card has its image horizontally oriented, so if it plugs into the base, the picture is sideways. Again, the back has a portion of an image of the Batcave printed on it. It doesn't match up with the Penguin's card, though.
