Quoted from Rarehero:
Mick is a moving standup target. Crane is a moving ball. They feel totally different. The crane is one of the most satisfying bash toys ever. It just feels awesome to hit metal on metal....and Lyman did all sorts of fun stuff with its movement that changed throughout the game. The crane toy with a better Batgame built around it could be a mega winner.
Maybe the crane is redesigned as the bomb from the 1966 movie and as you hit it you pass the marching band, loving couple, etc. in order to eventually dispose of the bomb!
