Hopefully we will get a Joker in the basic figures. I saw the Deluxe Joker today at Meijer and it's horrendously ruined by the action feature.

I think this are great for the price, but I just dont have the room or money to add another line. Plus Mattel has a bad history of starting these lines and ending them way too soon.

Does Mattel make Matchbox? I don't collect Matchbox so I don't know.

This is the "Total Destruction Batmobile" from Mattel's new "Batman: Power Attack" series. If anything I would have expected it to be a Hot Wheel.

I don't know for sure, but Matchbox products are offered in the mattel.com website...

http://shop.mattel.com/family/index.jsp ... Id=3812552

So I guess the answer is that Matchbox is part of the Mattel group.

EDIT: according to wikipedia...

Matchbox is a popular toy brand which was introduced by Lesney Products in 1953 and is now owned by Mattel, Inc

I was in a store yesterday and did see the Mattel logo on the back. I guess I always thought of them as two separate companies and did not know Mattel had acquired them.

To clarify a bit, Mattel got the Matchbox brand when they bought out Tyco.

^^ Thanks for the extra information, Jim.

this may explain why we get no more Matchbox cars in Spain since Hot Wheels irrupted in the Spaniard market... I guess in this case Mattel decided to give priority to their Hot Wheels brand over the Matchbox one, which had more than 20 years of history in the Spaniard market (I have more than 200 Matchbox cars from my childhood).

Here's a simple Nightwing custom I made out of an extra Robin. Just removed the cape, painted and shaved down the hair. I wanted to give him a set of Batman's legs for him to have boots, but decided I didn't want to spend $10 on another figure just to take it apart.

Damn You customizers that are awesome at what you do.. :mrgreen:


And just like that, now we need a nightwing in this line

I have some friends that are like this-- they dont see a figure for what it is- but for what it could become..

I just dont think that way...

i love it!!!!!!! can someone make one for me and a keaton batman colors version i.e all black, yellow logo and belt? I'd pay. The blue paint in the belt and buckle and arm gauntlet looks a little rough not so clean lines but the pic is a bit blurry. Seriously customizers on this board pm me. I'd also like to see an arkham asylum batman the ones from the 2 pack with catwoman and is all white in the keaton colors as well.

I decided i was happy with just batman and robin and tossed back the rest, i decide not to care about the rest as i do not need another thing to have to hunt. Besides this was just a spontaneous thing i came across, loved a lot i.e the batman and robin even though the sculpts are bit weird but who cares, its stylized art, its fun!!! I get e super excited every time i see them and its been a long time that i have felt so happy about toys and the discovery of them. Reminds of my days growing up pre-ebay , pre-population explosion and sans scalpers going to the toy store on saturdays


Oh the shoes look great this way!!!!!

if they make them good, two face doesn't look that nice on the back of the card but who knows in person. This line is not selling. Everywhere i go i see full cases, they might have another YJ on their hands. Guess they were trying to fill the BB&TB void. Any big box wanting an exclusive in this line is going to regret it like i bet walmart is regretting YJ and the GL packs.
