Oh yeah my point...... I still LOVE that show & I DVR it for my 7 & 10 year old nephews because THEY love it now! BUT unfortunately I'm trying to stop pumping so much $$$ towards Matty anymore! She the ONLY good thing about JLU ending is I have been able to slowly but surely stop collecting everything else they offer! Just like I literally spend thousands of dollars LESS in Target stores now that JLU is over! I never realised how much money I spent in those stores (on NON-JLU stuff) since i was in them ALL over the state looking for JLU product!

Long story short (yeah I know i'm NOT really capable of that), i might buy an Eartha Kitt Catwoman or Batgirl! If they were retro cloth, I buy 2-3 of every character they made if the FIXED theat DC Retro body!

Oh no... terrible thought... doesn't Mattel have a no tobacco and alcohol policy? Does this mean we wouldn't see Penguin with his classic cigarette holder?

Probably. But it would be fairly easy to customize one.

What I really want is a '66 Batmobile in 6" scale!!!!

(Yes, Mattel's 1/18 is fine, Hot toys' 1/6 one is amazing, but I want one where my action figures can sit in!!!)

This is what I want too. If there is any chance of Mattel making another to-scale vehicle for 6-inch action figures, I figure that this is our best shot.

My biggest worry about this (other than Mattel doing their normal Magic with the property- :roll: ) is the fact that since these figures would all be based on "celebrities" likeness to sell-- and this property is almost 50 years old..
Getting the rights and approval for each individual characters is going to be a mess- not to mention the fact that many of the decisions will be made by the estates of said indivduals- and some of those people can get very picky about how their dead relatives look-- that could send the costs of this line to insane numbers. And make Mattel jumpe ship after 3or 4 figures.

Actually, as i read it, the 60s Batman license encompasses all of the actor likenesses. http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/main ... ion-series

WBCP now has the rights to license the likenesses of the actors from Batman as part of the Batman Classic TV Series licensing program.

Although I kind of doubt we'll see this, wouldn't it be cool if they could do the Green Hornet and Kato too?

I was thinking of an Yvonne Craig Barbara Gordon action figure with Batgirlcycle as a con exclusive in a package that recreates the revolving room that she had in her apartment.....

That would be killer.

I don't know if you watch South Park, but there's an episode where Cartman finds out he's been left $1million in the will of a dead relative. For some bizarre reason, which probably explains in some way how my brain works, my reaction to your comment was similar to his.

I'd get Batgirl and Catwoman . . . if they look good.
