Alfred Pennyworth - BTAS

I don't usually post toys from the same line two days in a row, but I felt the need to with this fellow. Were would Bruce Wayne be without his butler, Alfred.  This figure was released as part of the New Batman Adventures toy line in a Toys R Us exclusive four pack. I remember seeing the pack at TRU while I was in college, but not buying Batman figures. Later on I found him at a yard sale and had to grab him.


Alfred is dressed in a black tuxedo and originally came with a tray of food. This was a perfect accessory for a butler. He's a quick photo of him with Bruce. I'm really glad they made a figure of this character, Alfred is so important to the Batman mythos, but he's not a hero or villain so he's often overlooked.

  2. Why are the food trays always missing with these figures?

  3. Alfred is the man! And all too deserving of an action figure.

  4. He was also included in a re-release of the Wayne Manor/Batcave playset and I don't think that version came with the tray: http://www.legionsofgotham.org/ActionFigures/Exclusives/TRU/TRUdarkstormcave.jpg
