Thanks Jim, just found it. Looks like a really good sculpt, and its good to get a newer suited body for figures.

Oh boy!!!

Just can't wait to get these figures (I've been waitting for it for about 30 years now)! They look better than the prototypes, specially Batman's cape.

Great work Matty!

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Wooohooo!

These do look really good, I still hope Mattel release a second wave with Batman and Robin with sculpted capes. Then collectors can put the fabric caped versions in the Batmobile and display the sculpted cape ones separately.
I'll be buying these for sure, but would buy second ones if they had sculpted capes.

Is it just me or are the torsoes on these figures way too long? Also they dropped the ab crunch on Batusi Batman but added double hinge elbows, I can see the need for the elbows, but why the loss of the ab crunch? I don't see how that saved them money, since it would require a new mold.

Whew.

One less SDCC exclusive to worry about. :mrgreen:

Joker and the Batmobile look good. I just might be tempted . . . once I know the price.

The ab crunch was removed from Batusi Batman to allow him to "dance". He has different torso articulation.

Correct. The Batusi version actually has an action feature with an internal mechanism. Push a button on his back and he does the dance. That's why the change in articulation.

At BBTS it said that the only way to get Robin is by buying the two pack with the building climbing effects

Mattel stated that back when they first revealed the line at Toy Fair.
I was kinda surprised it wasn't called out then, to be honest.

But I figure, if I do buy into the line, at least then I won't need the single carded Batman figure so that'll save me a few bucks...

Did they mention what this was going to be. A series, a one shot, ?

According to the DCComics blog it'll be a "web first" series. More info will be coming soon.

But I'll start a thread for it over in Funnybooks for it now anyways.
