Robin faces the combined villainy of the Toyman and the General, who have joined forces to carry out a master heist. Meanwhile, two of Tim's friends begin acting mysteriously out of character.
"The most unlikely-looking foes reveal themselves to be the most dangerous." - Alfred Pennyworth
Ulysses Hadrian Armstron, a.k.a. the General, makes his return to the pages of Robin after a short stint in a "youth study center." Not wanting Ulysses to return to his nefarious ways, Robin makes a home vist to warn the General that he is under observation.
A trip to the toy store brings the General face to face with Toyman, fresh from his escape off of Stryker's Island (see Robin #35), whom he idealizes for his army toyline.
Toyman sees an impressionable young boy that he can use for his own plans...namely stealing a rar action figure from the vault of an eccentric toy collector.
