Didn't see the price since I don't need any of the figs but it was as follows:

Mr. Freeze
Batgirl
Penguin
Catwoman(green-purple)
Killer moth
Shadowrang Batman
Antifreeze Batman
Disc Attack Batman

Catwoman is green with purple gloves, shoes and inside of her ears, no thanks!

Yep, saw it yesterday, it is 24.99-25.99 but still a great price, i might get it later, (one with better paint apps)

I saw this the other day. I think it's in the range of $30-40. I like all of the recent The Batman packs that have been popping up.

It's $49.99. Which is hilarious since it has a giant sticker that says "Value Pack," has only one new figure (Catwoman), and includes no accessories.

A Catwoman in tacky colors nonetheless! I understand how the purple one in the previous 4pk could be seen as an "homage" to the Silver Age Catwoman but this one looks like something a cat threw up instead!

Yup! It is at $49.99. Makes a "Would-be-collecting-this-line" guy double think of ACTUALLY collcting the line! Get it? hehehehe! :lol:

Don't like the colors on Catwoman and I have Killer Moth already. That's an expensive price. They could have at least put a few accessories in there.

How much are The Batman figures now? $8? At that price per figure, $50 would be a value, but only if accessories were included. And they aren't.

I suspect that TRU will have a Black Friday sale on this. They often have ridiculously overpriced items become resaonbly priced for Black Friday.

It's a value for someone just getting into Batman figure. But I'll pass as I have all those figures already. Personally I think the only The Batman figures I want now are the Justice League figures they have for this line.

She's worn green before:

Not for long, though. Neal Adams came along shortly thereafter and gave Selina her "Buccaneer" look:

Still, she has worn the color green before. It's not like it's a precedent.

(So, in fairness to Mattel, the green costume in the six pack is probably an homage of sorts to the Silver Age Catwoman, as well.)

I could see an Arkham Asylum set, with 6 villains, Batman and Robin.

Later on, after the league members starte coming out in this style, they could do a Good vs Evil set.

Batman, Superman, Hawkman, Green Lantern
Joker, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman, Bane

I will NOT buy any package with that Penguin in it. I just hate the design.

A pack with a brand new figure would be nice. Might be a good way to get an Alfred and Jim Gordon figure.
