Kenner Batman Batcave Command Center (Wayne’s Manor) 1992

The Kenner Batman Batcave Command Centre was only released for a noticeably short period of time in the Batman Returns line, therefore it is extremely rare to find a mint packaged version of this variation. However, several variations of this playset have been released throughout different lines of Batman figures with different paintwork and accessories etc. To date there are probable 6-7 different variations available.

Originally this playset was going to be released in the 1991 Dark Knight Collection but due to production problems and costs it was held over until late 1992, and it was only released over the holiday period and was withdraw in early 1993.

The playset came in a huge, rectangular box for packaging and featured photos of the playset rather than the usual artist’s impressions used on previous packaging.

Kenner Batman Wayne's Manor

The outside, or front, of the Kenner Batman Batcave Command Center playset looked like the front of an old gothic castle or mansion with loads of detail on the brick work, windows, and doors, right down to the door handles and an inscription of the Wayne family crest and a “Wayne Manor” inscription on the brickwork.

The roof was also extremely detailed with the rivets holding the roof tiles on and fne details on the sky lighting in the roof. This section of the playset was made from a brown or tan colored plastic rather than a grey stone color which detracted a little from the overall look and feel.

The playset opened up by unlatching a hook at the top on the reverse of the playset to reveal three separate sections, each with its own unique look, design and features.

The first of this Kenner Batman playset, or the furthest from the front section was the Batcave. This section featured Batman’s computer console in the command section with three “computer” screens and a swivel chair. The detail on the moulding of the rocks here, as with the brickwork on the front, was excellent

This section also had a transformation chamber for Batman to “change” in. This worked by strapping your Bruce Wayne figure into the Transformation Chamber and then rotating it using a lever on the back and then opening it to reveal Batman!

In order to do this you obviously needed both the Bruce Wayne and Batman figures.

The middle section was a garage with moulded rock features and a large swing garage door to give access for the Batmobile and a side entrance door for Batman and Robin to access the garage. This section was basic and didn’t have any other special features.

The third section is Artic World, which was another extremely well moulded and detailed section. This section featured a collapsing platform, that when activated by a button on the side, dropped the figure standing on it into a large chemical container underneath.  This container was attached to the wall when not in use, and could be detached when used as a trap for Batman’s unexpecting foes.

On the reverse, or “inside”, of the Kenner Batman Wayne Manor section the skylight windows in the roof could be dropped down, or opened, by pressing a button. There was also an anti-gravity plate that Batman could be strapped onto and when released, would flip over holding Batman upside down from the roof, like his namesake “bats”.

The reverse of the Garage section resembled a study, with the entrance door featuring a grandfather clock that opened doubling up as a secret door. There was also a zipline that attached to the top of this section and the top of the main entrance to Wayne’s Manor, allowing Batman to slide down the zip line and kick in the front door to surprise any intruders.

This playset showed off Kenner’s ability to make and produce highly detailed, entertaining, and fun playsets for their action figures, that were very flexible and could be re-tooled and painted to be used in a multitude of lines and variations. In fact, this proved to be so versatile and popular that it was has 6-7 different variations over numerous lines of Batman figures.
