Haven't seen these pics elsewhere but they're in our galleries...

Mattel is apparently planning to add a ton of characters to the 12" kids' line...

Image

...and the 66 Batman 3-pack and Batcomputer set are on display again, so it seems as if they are still coming...

(looks like the Batmobile repack with figures is still coming, too, from that last photo)

I'm not a big dc guy but I may break down and get Green Lantern and Batman Beyond.

That was my first thought as well. I really wanted DC Total Heroes to continue. It looks like Mattel took the 6" Total Heroes and the 4" Batman Unlimited and mashed them together into their 12" line. The head sculpts look similar.

Yep Green Arrow, Nightwing, Reverse Flash, 'Unlimited Batman' and Joker! There is another wave there with Joker the only one needing major new parts.

I might get the Joker, other than that no real interest in the 12" line.

I'll hunt for the Batcomputer accessory pack when it becomes available.

That is a sweet line up for the 12 inch line. I wonder why they went with that scale instead of making this a 6 inch line.

The line has been out since the January resets but I seldom see them anywhere -- pretty sure they were a response to how well Hasbro was doing with the Titan Heroes lines. Was never sure if it was really good sell-through or really bad re-stocking. If they have that many new ones planned (especially with Wonder Woman in the line up) they must be selling great!

They are sold at Walmart, Target, Kmart and Toys R Us. I've seen a lot more of the Hasbro 12" figures than the Mattel 12". I just wish they would have these in 4" or 6".

That 12" Wonder Woman only serves as a reminder to keep on the look out for the 6" Total Heroes version coming to Toys R Us.

Yep. What I meant was that the pegs/shelves are almost always empty where they're supposed to be.

Apparently this is all we get to see for Super Hero Girls...

The Arkham Knight Batmobile in the photo above.... Too small for six inch. Is that the same one that was the SDCC exclusive last year?
