Uh, no.

Kyle got the ring first in the Timmverse, not Hal. Alternative timeline maybe, but even that's a stretch IMO.


Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't remember seeing Hal actually get the ring in this series, he just had it already.

So the point is, I'm not judging Beware The Batman because it isn't Timmverse style.

I loved Brave and the Bold, I liked the Batman - with the new take on villians (even if it was the Jackie Chan Adventures)

Im not judging it either for that reason-- Im judging it because they are using the Morrison influence- he killed Batman for me an comics I hope to god he doesnt kill him for me in cartoon form.. and Professor Pyg is the stupidest villian ever-- (worse than Louie the Lilac or Kiteman)- although the Flamingo may be a close second..

--I am a huge fan of cartoons (especially Batman)- but I hope this one never sees the light of day

Looking at the Batman and Anarchy designs in the Beware the Batman Screen thread...
How much do you want to bet their action figures will share the same buck, at least the torso?

Mattel Announces an Adam West Batman Toy Line

by SuperHeroHype

December 20, 2012

Word broke earlier this year that 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. had negotiated a deal regarding licensing of the 1960's "Batman" television show. Today, the latest issue of License! Global confirms that the first wave of merchandise will hit in 2013.

"The 1960's Classic Batman TV Series line," the magazine reports, "which will be released next year, is based on the original television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward."

"Batman" aired for three seasons on ABC between 1966 and 1968 and featured returning talent like Cesar Romero, Frank Gorshin, Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt.

Due to legal complications, "Batman" has never been available on DVD but, with news of a toy line on the way, it's likely we'll be seeing the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder finally hit the format sometime next year.

The magazine also reveals that Mattel will continue the "DC Super Friends" line, introduce a new line for 2014 based on the upcoming "Beware the Batman", "refresh" DC's adult adult collector line and continue their "evergreen" Batman figures in a line called "Power Attack". Naturally, next summer's Man of Steel will also receive a tie-in toy line.

I'm hopeful 2013 will be a comeback year for Mattel. I'm happy that the Movie Masters line is breaking out into the 66 Batman TV and Man of Steel figures, and very excited about the upcoming Beware the Batman line!

Fingers crossed that the Beware the Batman is close to JLU scale.

I'm kinda drying up on Mattel's DC stuff, but I'm getting more and more excited for this particular line every day. I can't wait to see these. The local Oldies station has been playing reruns of the show and it's been a real treat. Getting the show on dvd is long overdue.

Can't wait for these 60s Batman figures.
I wonder if they will have an accompanying 3.75in line considering every other MM line with the exception of Ghostbusters (which was an online exclusive) had one?
Also, since they will not have a direct, ongoing media tie-in, I'm hoping the price point will be a little lower. But since they don't have a media tie, it will more than likely be higher.

Bummer about 2012 for Beware the Batman toys.
Hopefully this doesn't follow the fate of GL:TAS toys.
The show debuts this year, so I wonder why the toys are coming out later:?
This will be a line that I will probably get every character.

I hope to god they're not on DCUC bucks... Knowing Mattel, they will probably attempt it.

Me too, these figures deserve all new body bucks as nobody on that series had a DCUC type of body. :roll:

I wonder if they are going to accurately sculpt Joker's head with Caesar Romero's white-painted moustache. :mrgreen:

I, for one, really really really hope that they do.

I'm excited for this line, which is the first new Mattel DC line I can say that about in a while. So I'm hoping for the best. And yes. Painted moustache!!

They've got to do a Batmobile for this! What do you guys think the chances are? Do we know if this will be a retail or Matty line? I would imagine we would have a better chance at a Batmobile if it was for retail.

They'd be fools not to offer this at retail. There's a nostalgia factor that would make this line appeal to a broader consumer group than who normally collect Mattel's DC lines.
