Autumn 2013, can't reveal which characters.  Hmm.  Hope it happens, anyway.   Cheesy  I'd rather see DC Direct figures than Mattel.   Undecided

I believe what the announcement was saying was the the superheroes figures referred to in that press release were "Figures based on Injustice in 2013".

The giveaway is that HT's will certainly do TV Batman figures is the 1/6 1966 Batmobile they are displaying at the San Diego Comic Con. No reason to offer a Batmobile without their figures to go into it.



Sorry T W Cage, I totally missed it!!!!

Huh Huh

If this information doesn't pertain to the '66 figures, then the linked page is simply strange and baffling to me.   Grin

Incorrect if you go their page on the Mattel panel the show slides that were shown during the panel and they specifically show Adam and Burt as batman and robin and detail these will be coming in 2013...no prototypes or drawings but you can bet we will see some soon!
Yowser!

At the very least, they're not trying to "hero" them up.

DC Direct has the ability to make figures even if Mattel does.  That's the agreement of the master license.  Of all the merchandise that I DON'T know for certain will get made-- figures and statues from DC Direct is a guarantee.  There's just no way the house company doesn't get on the bandwagon, and the excitement at DC Licensing over this is overwhelming.

It would be like making a giant vehicle but no figures for it-- ridiculous! Wink

And with great respect...this is Mattel. They make standardized figures for the mass market. This is not where we're going to see ultra-detail, etc. I dig that some might be underwhelmed at this moment, but these are what they are - and protos to boot. The very fact that this is happening, that you'll see BATMAN '66 merch at retail is incredible.

Well I thought it looked pretty good, personally.  Plus the thought that my boys might be getting '66 figures they can actually PLAY with is awesome.

I've worked with Mattel in the past and know quite well how they operate. I wasn't looking for amazing or even a "Wow".

What I meant was that they missed most of the good design of the overall "look" and went with the most obvious stereotype "impressions" of the character and actor.

If that's the direction that they take it in, it's not going to be anything I'm interested in.

I'm on board, there will be a LOT to choose from out there-- from the very best (Hot Toys) to middle of the road (DC Direct) to mass market (Mattel)-- hey, it's a LOT better than what we got from Toy Biz with the '89 Batman film.

As a generic Adam West Batman, I like it-- and I'm in!  I'm going to work my tootsies off for the remainder of 2012 so I can take most of 2013 off and play with my '66 Batman toys!  WHOOOO!
