The Dark Knight Bat Jet was another design that was borrowed from a previous Kenner line. This vehicle was originally released as the Sprinthawk jet in the Silverhawks line. The only difference between them was a re-tooling of the missile launcher to a more “batcentric” one, other than that even the stickers were the same as the original. The Silverhawk was grey and orange whereas the Bat Jet looked better as a solid black.
The packaging, as with many of the Kenner figures, featured excellent artwork of Batman flying the Bat Jet and in the top left-hand corner was an image of Michael Keaton from the Batman movie.
Th reverse of the packaging had several images of the Bat Jet taken from different angles in the top and images of the Bat Cycle, Bat Copter and Joker Cycle at the bottom.
The Bat Jet had a missile launcher at the front that fired plastic bat shaped projectiles that was operated on the right-hand side of the cockpit. Its wings could be retracted into the jet’s body to be driven in road mode and at a flick of a button they would pop back out ready for flight mode. Also, the Jet’s canopy could slide open and closed to give access to the cockpit for Batman to be seated.
The Bat Jet came pre-assembled and was made from solid black plastic, so no painting was required. The packaging also came with a few decal stickers for the wings, tail, and the cockpit dashboard to decorate the Bat Jet with.
This was a very solid and durable toy giving kids endless hours of fun creating their own Batman adventures.
