I've been finding all of them. All I need is Joker and Robin but I think they are due out this week.

PJ - 2008-09-16 @ 7:40 pm

Here are the codes -

On Batman is - JKR331

On Mr. Freeze is - NJL412

On the Joker Copter is - RDT637

On the Batboat is - XWP645

I don't know what they unlock, but those are the ones I have so far.

Over the last few days I've picked up Batman, Mr. Freeze, Joker copter & Batboat and I didn't realize until today that each figure/toy has a code for the video game on them. I can't wait until next Tuesday to play Lego Batman.

I honestly think this is the best happy meal toy I have seen in a long time. Last I remember was the MOTU figures that came out and they were high quality stuff as well. Having kids, does help - not to mention you can't go wrong with a .89 cent burger - but the toys are great. So far we found the Joker helicopter, Batman, Batboat and Mr. Freeze. You can buy them without the meal at 1.89 cents each or you can switch them out with another item.

Best rule of thumb - call ahead and ask what characters they have.

the easiest way to get a whole set, and quickly, would be to just get a set on ebay. you can always get whole kids meal sets for a good price on ebay, and it'll save you the time and they're sometimes even a little less than the cost of eating that many kids meals.

i actually love fast food, especially mcdonald's, so i have no problem actually eating happy meals to collect these. the only downside to that is they usually only have a few different toys available per week. i've just got batman and mr. freeze right now.

What's the easiest way to get them all? Every time I've ever ordered multiple happy meals they've always come with the exact same toy.

take your extras and trade them in- mcdonalds lets you trade toys that are unopen and that are in the same series

I always ask first if they sell the toys seperately. In the past i have discovered some stores unwilling to do so (but 99 percent of the time they say yes)

Then I ask which toys they have, or I ask for all of them if I want the whole set. Unfortunately this time the store I stopped at only had 1-4, but I got them and will be looking out for 5-8!

Rama Sha - 2008-09-14 @ 5:47 am

Just go up and ask which toys they have. That's the easiest way. I did it today but I only wanted the Joker Copter and Joker as I only collect Joker items. I got the Copter, but not the man himself.

I was able to get 1-4 today (Joker Copter, Bat Boat, Freeze and Batman!)

They are actually very cool. The Batman and Freeze figures are pretty nice looking little guys.
