The new series is set in the early days of Bruce Wayne as the Batman and added a new character in Tatsu Yamashiro, the goddaughter of Alfred as his bodyguard and partner to battle organized crime.
The Happy Meal toys where first seen in the US early this year featuring the vehicles like the bat cycle, batmobile, and the Batman himself. But they did not include Batman with a shooting weapon. There is also the mask for kids to play along as the Batman.
Paired up with the toys for the boys is Twinkle Toes for the girls featuring colorful sneakers as danglers or some called it oversized keychain. But the Asian release only have three to collect since to get all Happy Meal toys you collect eight.
The limit or minimum to collect in the Happy Meal toys in Asia mostly eight divided to four for boys and the other half for girls. But since Beware the Batman have five items to collect they cut down the Twinkle Toes to get only three. Happy Meal promo just started showing up in the Philippines yesterday.
