If Wave 2 is coming out this summer, I wouldn't be surprised if it happens at SDCC. My recollection is that, with the initial Mattel figures, people were disappointed not to see them at Toy Fair only to find them later at SDCC.

Well, we´ll have to wait, but it´s good that they didn´t cancel it. Can´t wait to get more news about them, and I hope I´ll be able to catch this Wave as well!

Late July is when SDCC is. I'd hope to see something before that.

I'm just praying wave 2 blows us away, with all this anticipation wave 2 should be GREAT! Here is my wish list for wave 2!
Joker, penguin, riddler, eartha kit catwoman: chase lee with mask, egghead, surfs up batman surfs us joker chase. Also for the vehicle green hornet and Kato with the black beauty, I think it would be a nice item for fans!

I’d feel complete if we got Joker, Penguin, Riddler, Egghead and a Batcave. Icing on the cake for me would be Batgirl Cycle, Mad Hatter, Pink Cowl Batman, Surfer Joker and Surfer Batman, Eartha’s Catwoman, Julie’s Catwoman (masked) and Green Hornet and Kato.

Fear not citizens word from the CEO of Funko is we are not done with Batman '66.
I happen to be friends with Brian and am always pushing for the line to continue.
Cause I need an Egghead, Bookworm, Mad Hatter, and Archer at least I have told him.
Plus a friend that works in the Marketing Department is a huge Batgirl Fan, so she wants a Batgirl Cycle.

BTW they did do Surfer Batman & Joker. I have a Pink Cowl Custom Batman that A very good customizer did for me.

I´d like the big ones as much as you, but I´d love to get other characters like False Face (cool design, and no need to get the likeness of the actor in this case :P) or Chief O´Hara. Heck, even Alfred with his green apron would be amazing. Too many possibilites; I know it could be tricky (not sure how "easy" could be getting Neil Hamilton´s rights, but imagine Gordon with the red phone to add to the collection), but would be cool to getting the big ones plus the rest of the cast in the following waves.

I think we´ll agree that Wave 2 will include Joker/Penguin/Riddler, unless they´ll split those of a future Wave 3.

^^^ There must be some holdup on doing False Face or FTC would have done him for sure.

They did Bookworm in wave 1. Surfer Batman and Joker were only made as Pops.

Don't even tease about Wave 3....let's get the heavy hitters in Wave 2 so if Wave 3 comes as close to cancellation as Wave 2 did...we will at least have a decent amount of characters and our collections will feel complete.

I doubt they´re really thinking on a wave 3 right now, but who knows. Anyway, it´d be fun to get Gordon, O´Hara and the supporting cast among Joker and company. First wave had 7 figures (Bats, Robin, Batgirl, Catwoman, Bookworm, King Tut and Mr. Freeze); if they do the main baddies they wouldn´t have too many space for the rest. If they release Joker, Penguin and Riddler at the same time, which other characters would put in there? If they wanna split the line between good and bad guys, they wouldn´t have Wave 2 only for villains. Will be have an Aunt Harriet figure? :P

As much as I´d like to have a Catwoman with a mask, a Batman with the contaminated cowl or something like that, I´d like to get new characters instead of filling the Wave with the same figures with minor modifications.
