Kind of neat looking.

Could you please provide a link? All I see is the 1970s Mego Batcave on the FTC page but the above image looks completely different. Is it?

Thank you Andy. Yeah, that's not the Mego remake. It clearly is the Batcave and Wayne Manor.

Wish the photo was able to be enlarged so we could see things better. Maybe it's because I'm using my phone not a computer?

This is excellent news! The long awaited item from my wish list from when the 66 licensing boom started!

Hopefully these are slightly sharper than the version of the image from the newsletter Andy shared:

This looks really neat. Since I'm guessing it's not quite up to scale with 8" figures, I wonder how it would work with the Mattel or even Funko figures?

Kind of cool, I guess, that it more or less retains the shape of the old Mego cave, but it really is an oddball design. Using "accurate" imagery of the computers, etc just brings attention to the fact that everything's in the wrong place (look where the poles would be), and as noted, our of scale. (And 2-D cut-outs, apparently). That said, this whole line specializes in "slightly off," so in that way it fits.

On the upside, what a brilliantly simple fix for the signal, adding that decal. The old "bat signal" text label was pretty lame.

Nice setup a little off, Mego would have done the same thing.
I've rested on these toys for a bit, I'll be getting this and the Catwomen maybe some henchmen if they are cool.

That's the ticket. now I'll need to unload the other Batcave playset from last year.

You will need to add one of these:

And I think they're re-making the Mego Batmobile in various colors too. Saw that a few weeks ago on the news site.

Funny you should ask. I was just emailing them about another item and I asked about that Batcave. The answer: SPRING 2018 for the 1966 Batcave. That's March to June.
