I do believe we're just WAITING on Catwoman - she's still supposed to be released. I've been wrong before...

I seriously doubt you'll ever find her at retail though. BBTS, EE, Amazon, and other e-tailers are probably the only ones that are going to get her.

Saw a lone Riddler at a TRU last week. That's my only sighting of this line in the wild thus far.


I've seen one Riddler and one Penguin. The distribution near me is twice as good as yours!

I got all the figures (except Batman, I don't need 2, and Catwoman, since she's not out yet) from Amazon. I'm planning on getting Catwoman from them as well, not need for fruitless searches.

I picked up the Batmobile at TRU, I saw a couple of them there, so I jumped at the chance. I hope this line actually makes it out to the stores a bit sometime soon because it's looking pretty sad so far.

I've only spotted the Batmobile at TRU. No figures at any brick and mortar shops. Seen some at comic stores though.

Meanwhile... this line isn't continuing into 2014 due to "lack of interest".

Good job, Mattel. Once again, you have your finger on the pulse of what's popular and what consumers want to buy. Good luck with that Total Zeroes line that will soon be collecting dust on the pegs. :roll:

The "lack of interest" could be from retailers, not necessarily the consumers. In all the big box stores in my area, none of them have retail space available for these. I've had to buy all my figures online.

Every single store I've seen these in has sold through their stock. There's something dreadfully wrong with the retail chain when something that sells out isn't able to be reordered/restarted and fast.

I ordered the Joker from amazon.com for 15.99 w/free shipping and 2 day delivery! I have pretty much given up on retail and have been doing about 60% of my shopping online. The way I see it is whatever I spend on shipping is about what I might spend on gas to look for the stuff anyways...

I think it is more like there are tons of Avengers, Ironman, Spiderman and Superman. There is so much out there not moving that these were under ordered.

Plus any extensions to the line would have had to have been ordered months before the first wave saw the pegs. Selling toys at mass-retail based on a show that's nearly 48 years old sounds just plain crazy in the first place, the fact that they even took a risk on these still floors me.

1960's Batman still has a niche fan base better late than never IMO. Even if it was a hit, how deep can you go Catwoman,Freeze, batgirl, Tut, and that's probably it.

I would believe a False Face figure would of been the only extra that would not of cost for an actor's likeness. It really is a mask and could come with some generic faces. I hope Mattel goes back to the well to make Batgirl, especially if she comes with her cycle.
