I was speaking with a Target department manager yesterday while they were organizing the toy aisle resets. We spoke about upcoming Mattel/Fisher Price product (I ended up getting an Imaginext Javelin) and was told that the Batman "evergreen" line is currently "NCR" but it may come back with the winter reset.

Don't know how much truth there is to that, and if it is just for a certain scale or packout (deluxe v regular, etc.), but if the 3.75" line does not start getting better distribution to bigger stores (like Target, Walmart, and TRU) then this line is already DOA.

I really had no desire to pick up this line when the first figures hit. However once I saw the single figures of the 3.75" Batman and Joker (at a Dollar Store) I picked them up. I'm hoping that the single figures of Robin and Two-Face that were in the Target 4 pack (which I never saw in stores) will eventually be released separately.
Now that I've seen this pic of all the other figures coming out I've gotten excited about this line, but I too fear that it may end up cancelled. Hopefully these little figs can come out as singles in stores like Kohls or Big lots at a cheap price and in abundance (no rare figures).

I hope these will be readily available. I loved the reveals at Comic Con.

The new figures are up on Amazon.

Batman Batarang Claw Batman, Batman Tech Glider Robin, Batman Action Wing Batman, Batman Speed Strike The Flash, Batman Steel Shield Superman, Batman Slapstick Smack The Joker.

The Batman The Joker Robo Rampage Figure Set was up, but is sold out.

No sign of the 5 pack, Gotham City Showdown, but I suspect that'll be a Target exclusive (since they've had similar packs in the past (DKR, MoS, etc)

I ordered Superman and the Flash, and they should be here tomorrow.

I really dig the look of this line and hope we get more DC characters in this. Really hope for a Green Lantern and Aquaman.

That's the older 5 pack with the 5 POA figures. There's a new one which was shown at NYCC with Batman, red Azbats, Clayface, Green Arrow and Deathstroke.

The new one is a 7 pack that also includes Joker and Robin.

$9 single figures on Amazon. I wonder if they will have the dollar store variants without the accessories for less?

I really wish these were in the Total Heroes style sculpt at 4". Then I would really go for them.

D'oh! You are right, sir!

As much as it killed me to not get the single carded Batman, I'm trying to not double dip on anyone in that 7 pack. If only they'd made the 7 pack Bats black and grey...

I still see the single carded figures at Big Lots for 5.00 a piece.
I still have to pick up a Joker.

Got Flash and Superman today from Amazon. I love these figures. They are very stylized, and not 100% comic accurate...but they're cool and fun. They're bright and stylized. The style is, to me, very reminiscent of Sigma Six...very in 4" scale.

This line could be a very fun ride.

I wanted to get the 6 figures in this initial wave but I only
ordered Flash and Action Wing Batman (the Azbats one).

Had to order some stuff for my kids too so had to keep
The price of the order down.

I hope they make more waves.

I totally agree. Got Supes, Robin, Batman, Flash and Azbats. They remind me of John Byrne inspired Generations figures. They aren't comic accurate but at the same time they incorporate enough traditional elements to make them both recognizable and interesting. Better than neon orange varients and the like.
