Expansion Sets Featuring Batman, Super Friends, & Enemies

Batman and the Green Lantern Lead the Way

In late 2008 or early 2009 and again in 2011, Fisher Price delved into the world of the Super Friends, a group of super heroes based on DC Comics’ Justice League of America. Sets featured two of the heroes – Batman and the Green Lantern. Others sets focused on three of the villains – Joker, Riddler, and Penguin. I think they may have expanded this lineup if the toys had stayed in production, but 2011 was the last year Fisher Price made any GeoTrax sets. The Riddler is found in the Batcave set and his own Joke Factory set (which is confusing because he’s the Riddler, not the Joker). The Penguin comes in three different sets – the two Gotham City sets and his own Lair set. The Joker is featured in four sets – the Batcave,  the Joker’s Engine, the Joker’s track pack, and the Joker’s Lair. If you’d like more information on the whole Batman and arch enemies scene, see this article for even more details.

Toy Story 3 Set Also Found Here

Since there is only one GeoTrax set based on the movie Toy Story 3, I’ve included it at the bottom of this page. It just seemed a little silly to devote a whole page to just one set.

Scroll on down to find the Getaway Turbo set featuring three alien heads going for a ride in a pink car.

Be the Popular Hero Batman

Sadly, there’s no room for the Boy Wonder, Robin, in this version (V7872) of the Batmobile, but it does speed along quickly with a fresh set of batteries, since this is one of the turbo remote control sets.

This small but popular set was released in 2011. It includes the following items.

  • Batmobile
  • Batman figure
  • Remote Controller

Batman Also Gets His Own Train Engine

This seems a little strange, but Batman gets a train engine of his own in this set (V7873). I don’t recall Batman ever traveling in a personal engine. He’s known for his mobile and his cycle (and perhaps his helicopter and boat).

This set would have been released at about the same time in 2011 as the Batmobile set just above. It consists of the following pieces.

  • Train Engine (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Turbo Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Batman Figure (not shown)

The Joker Gives Batman Someone to Chase

Joker’s Engine (V7874) is a colorful set that should attract your child even though he’s a villian. There is an engine with huge white teeth for a grill or cowcatcher. As far as I know, the comic strip, TV series, or movie Joker never had such a vehicle, but so what?

The Joker minifig doesn’t look quite as scary as the human characters. In fact, he almost looks cute. What he intends to do with the wrench, I don’t know.

This is a turbo remote controller, just like Batman’s, so he won’t automatically get caught by the caped crusader.

The Joker’s Engine was released in 2011 and contains these pieces.

  • Engine (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Joker
  • Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)

Enjoy a Crazy Ride in the Toy Story Getaway Turbo Car

So the three little aliens are out and about in a cute pink car. You control them with a turbo remote controller that provides plenty of speed. It also gives the sounds you’d expect from these little green men, assuming you’ve seen the Toy Story movies.

This car moves both forward and backward. It may look a little unusual when you combine it with the other trains, cars, and other vehicles in the GeoTrax world. It will certainly stand out with its bright pink color.

Like the vast majority of sets with remote controllers, you will need 6 AAA batteries – 3 for the remote and 3 for the vehicle – to make it run. This amount of power lets you play with the toys for a good, long time.

This set (T7161) was released in 2010 and consists of the following items.

  • Getaway Car (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
