I ordered one, too. If it's legit, great. If it's not, I'll return it to my local Target. With free shipping using a Red Card, what's there to worry about?

Well i live in a small town that's just over 100 miles from the nearest Target so I'd pretty much have to ship it back to return it and pay for the shipping. lol

sooo......Target's website has the batmobile listed as in stock. I ordered one hoping it's legit even though its supposed to be a TRU exclusive. Thoughts?


I suspect this is not the same Batmobile as the TRU one. The description does not match
(size, weight) even though the picture used is exactly the same as the TRU one. I recently
seen the back of the new cardbacks for the 1966 figures and on at least one of these
cards it advertises the large Batmobile as a TRU exclusive. Of course, the Target description
may be in error and it's the same Batmobile, perhaps with some sort of alteration to distinguish it from the TRU one.

I thought that too about the size/weight, but did you see the figures they have listed that we know are legit? They list Riddler as 12'' tall and 2'' wide.........I guess they just put in random numbers for dimensions. lol

My '66 Batmobile from Target has shipped. I'll know in a few days if it's the real deal. I suspect it is, based on the price. We were told it would be $50. A $10 mark up at TRU is typical for them.

And it wouldn't be the first time Mattel reps swore up and down that an item was a store exclusive, when in fact it wasn't.

Good news guys, the one at Target IS the MM Batmobile. Guy on a Matty collector forum just posted that he got it there with pics.

Well, I just pulled the trigger on the two-pack, since it's apparently the "only" place to get Robin. I find it hard to believe that they won't be releasing a single-card Robin at some point. Still, at today's prices, $29.99 or whatever for two six-inch licensed figs isn't too crazy, and I need SOMETHING to put in my new Batmobile.

Sigh. I'm such a sucker sometimes.

If they make a Shame figure, I'm gonna have to buy that one, too.

It is a decent deal, but it seems stupid to me to have Robin only in the two pack. I don't know why anybody would want to buy the single pack Batman, unless they were absolutely sure they didn't want Robin.

Same thing with the Man of Steel Movie Masters. Why did they release Zod without shackles and then with, and Superman without key and then with Key? Everybody should just pass on the first figures and they should clog the pegs. Mattel seems to be getting into double-dipping too much - DC Collectibles is doing it, too, and it sucks for everybody.

Got my order from Target in this morning. It for sure IS the MM scale batmobile. Looks like it's not a TRU exclusive after all. I plan on posting pics within the next few days.

Got my Batman & Robin two pack I pre-ordered from Amazon ages ago and...YUCK, the coloring on Robin's legs and arms is gross. He looks like a cadaver, extremely greyish. Definitely doesn't look like pictures I've seen so far. Anybody else have this issue?

they're all like that...they're kind of a murky green grey. maybe they were trying to make his legs look like his tights from the show? or maybe not because some batman figures have variations in the colors of the leg pieces...like the knee doesn't match the upper thigh.

Yeah, the leg color is bad. My Robin's arms are fine, though. Other than the paint slop...
