I was thinking it was for the Batman 66 because on the left of the page that I linked to they have Classic TV Batman Figures Series 1 and under that they have Batman Retro Action Figures Series 1 and that case shows the Mego line of figures including Batgirl and Catwoman (in her 70's costume from the comic) I agree that it is confusing-I am just hopeful for Batgirl

I contacted them Saturday as to which Catwoman figure we'd get first.

It is definitely going to be Julie, and I can't WAIT to see how it comes out.

The Mego Museum website has posted an interview with the head of Figures Toy Company (http://www.megomuseum.com/mego-museum-i ... #more-3605) who spilled that the company has the rights to entire DC character universe. He also said they hope to make playsets and vehicles.

So, my question is.....will they be making a "retro" Mego style Batman with removable cowl and a Robin with removable mask. Also, what about the old Mego "Secret Identity" line with Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson? Will the 66 Batman and Robin have removable masks? So many questions, so little money.

They haven't really said anything one way or another, at least not to me.

It'd be a nice thing to have that, but not really necessary.'

If they DO make those figures, they are going to become very rich in a short amount of time.

Removable mask Batman and Robin, as well as Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson, are planned, according to FTC's press release from a few weeks back.

AWESOME! Hadn't noticed that on the case! I do care about those versions. The painted-on mask Batman was a total disappointment to me in my childhood. He looks terrible.

Thanks for the info! And yes, the money will be flooding in!

Not sure if this has been up for awhile, but I just noticed the Classic Batman carrying case is now available for pre-order:
