Nice looking figures. It's been said before but the Batmobile is awesome. I wish they had made Batman's cape shiny though but the figure still looks great. Might just get a few in the line, Batman, Robin and Batgirl for sure..

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but it's hard for me to imagine a line like this hitting the kind of numbers Mattel seems to require. It doesn't seem to hit any of the marks they've tended to fall back on (current TV show, mom & kid interest, etc). I'll be pretty surprised if everything shown makes it out, much less anything more. These are supposed to be retail, right?

I personally think these look great, though. A Burgess Meredith Penguin will be hard for me to pass up. And that Batmobile is a thing of beauty, no question about it.


Well if they distribute these figures like they did the Dark Knight Movie Masters, it's gonna be awful. Still never saw the last two in stores anywhere. Barely saw the second two. It was pathetic.

These figures look pretty awesome, and the Batmobile looks amazing. I am in for everything they make - I just hope they let me give them money for their product, and not some scalper.

Have to say that I like the first three figures, but I just wish Adam West's Batman had a plastic cape.

I've got to think the next three figures in the line will be Robin, The Joker, and Julie Newmar's Catwoman. Then I see Egghead, King Tut, Mad Hatter, and Otto Preminger's Mr Freeze. Perhaps The Bookworm or Alfred, after that, then it's anybody's guess. Clock King? False Face? Shame? Black Widow? Archer? Sandman? Who knows?

Holy shnikes! Did you guys see the front page? Never thought I would be picking up a Barbie doll. The retro-awesomeness of the dolls are blowing my mind.

Ha! I never ever thought I'd get Barbie’s either but here they are.

So I might just have to add these new ones to my collection too.

Wow! A Surf Board Batman, and a Batman and Robin Two-Pack, with a skyscraper accessory for them to climb on! I am super excited about this toy line! I am going to so broke when these toys come out this summer.

A cool idea and all, and I'm happy for those that have been waiting for these guys for years, but I just can't get excited. The execution is spot-on, though.

Amen!

I'll be buying the entire collection. Singles, 2-packs, Batmobile and even variants. That's the coolest figures from the Toy Fair IMO.

Great work Matty! :mrgreen:

Uh-oh, the Batmobile is exclusive to TRU.

This might be a good thing, but only if the Batmobile is available on their website. TRU usually has free shipping.

I'm overjoyed at the look and feel of this line. I never imagined getting an in scale Batmobile!

I've waited years for a line of figures based off of this show - I plan to pick up all of them :D

Actually it looks like the whole line is brick-n-mortar exclusive to TRU. The line at the bottom of that poster reads "Coming Summer 2013 to Toys 'R' Us and other fine online retailers!"

I don't know if that is a bad thing. At least TRU gets their exclusives in stock. Many times I've never found Wal-Mart exclusives, and I know Target hasn't been great with their exclusives, either - I thought JLU being a Target exclusive would help things, but it actually made distribution worse.

I guess maybe you're worried because TRU jacks up prices?

Will it be only TRU in the US that will get these or will the UK branches be getting them too?

Here is a quote from hagop over on the Fwoosh on this line. He was at Toyfair:

"These are out in the fall.
Also, according to Toy Guru, these are NOT exclusives. Amazon and TRU will get them FIRST, but then they will be available everywhere."

So looks like the Batmobile will be the only TRU exclusive.
