Scarecrow is a dummy made of straws to scare away crows in the fields.
Oh, we are not talking about that scarecrow but this Twister Strike Scarecrow from the Legends of Batman or one of the arch enemies of Batman.
Scarecrow is able to strike a twister spin rotating 360 degrees by pulling his waist up to release the gimmick. You are able to lock it back to a ratchet waist joint by snapping it back. Cool and useful for a helicopter chopping action.
He also features a red eye light piping and glows in the nightmare to scare you while slashing with his scythe.
His tattered cloth, hat and stick like limps are all detailed if you pay attention to them as they are not shaded or paint washed to bring out the effect.
The one lacking point is his articulation which he only have 5 points namely at the neck, both arms, waist rotation and legs. For his arms, he can only stretch out straight sideways and that's it. Very limited and also his posing makes him slightly tricky to stand due to his feet position.
Even with his bended knees pose, he still match up to about 7.5 inches tall. Not bad for a Kenner figure which they are used to do smaller scales.
This is one of the Batman series figures in the last reining days of Kenner that still impresses me until today.
If you ever see him in card, open him out for a spin.

Daily Toyz ... a space transcends beyond ordinary toys which are presented in the form of portrait expressions but yet not constraining to the appreciation of Art and Toys in any form conceivable to bring out the joy in us.
