This is the Mattel Batman Power Attack Ice Blast Mr Freeze action figure which is approximately 6.5 inches / 16.5 cm tall . I don't like the 3 3/4 inch figures because I find them rather small. They are good for putting into vehicles but not great when they stand alone. I was attracted to this Mattel Batman Power Attack Ice Blast Mr Freeze figure because its size stood out and caught my attention. Plus I cannot resist a good looking Mr Freeze action figure :)
Mr Freeze, real name Dr Victor Fries (surname pronounced "freeze"), is a scientist who must wear a cryogenic suit in order to survive, and bases his crimes around a "cold" or "ice" theme, complete with a "cold gun" that freezes its targets solid. In the most common variation of his origin story, he is a former cryogenics expert who suffered an industrial accident while attempting to cure his terminally ill wife, Nora.
The Mattel Batman Power Attack Ice Blast Mr Freeze 6.5-inch / 16.5 cm tall action figure comes carded and is a part of a set of four arctic mission figures from the Batman Power Attack line of figures. The other three figures in the set are Blizzard Buster Batman, Thermo Attack Batman and Battle Gauntlet Batman. Scroll down to see more pictures of this very COOL (pun intended) Mr Freeze action figure.
The back of the card says "Mr Freeze turns a desert town into his frozen base until Batman shows up to thwart the icy villain's evil plans!" Mr Freeze tells Batman to "Chill out!"
Mattel Batman Power Attack Ice Blast Mr Freeze 6.5-inch / 16.5 cm tall action figure out of his plastic prison. Free from the confines of his plastic bubble cage, Mr Freeze is now free to roam and have his pictures taken :) I am not one to keep the figure in the box / card. For me, the toy is meant to be taken out and played with, even if it's just to be posed with and have its pictures taken.
IMHO You cannot really appreciate the action figure / toy until you take it out of the confines of its box / card (otherwise known as plastic prison) and examine it from front to back. In most cases, you never get to see the back of the toy / action figure because it is concealed / hidden from view.
Mr Freeze always grabs my attention because of the cryogenic suit he wears in order to survive. It makes the figure appear bulkier and the clear dome over his head gives Mr Freeze the futuristic sci-fi look. Each interpretation of Mr Freeze is always interesting and I always love to see what the designers come up with, as is the case with this Mattel Batman Power Attack Ice Blast Mr Freeze action figure
I like the blue-and-black look of this Mr Freeze and the very cool looking blue translucent arms. The chest area is also translucent and shows off Mr Freeze's rib cage.
The Mattel Batman Power Attack Ice Blast Mr Freeze doesn't have his cold gun but he does wield a large ice sword. They are actually two pieces which snap together.
The ice sword can be stored on Mr Freeze's back when he's not using it
Another look at Mattel's Batman Power Attack Ice Blast Mr Freeze 6.5-inch / 16.5 cm tall action figure with ice sword stored on his back and looking ultra cool in his cryogenic suit.

Bonus feature: the dome on Mattel Batman Power Attack Ice Blast Mr Freeze action figure can be removed to reveal the true appearance of Mr Freeze without his helmet.
Freeze looks just as cold without his helmet / dome on. Does the cold stare send chills down your spine?
