Ha! I was just coming here with the exact same pic!

I actually already have the "HeroWorld!" animation-style Batman and Nightwing set, but notice the pack at top left is Adam West Batman and masked Julie Newmar Catwoman in their "Batman '66" outfits, but styled with the big-footed stance of all other solid "HeroWorld!" figures.

I guess Funko thinks that these have more playability than another wave of regular 4" action figures?

I believe this may be animated series Batman based on other pics on the page, but I am viewing it on a phone
Wearing the TV outfits, but in exaggerated "HeroWorld!" stances.

Yep, that's correct. I got the name wrong thinking it was Heroclix. Turns out Hero World is a Funko product. Thanks, Ian. I'd never seen those before. So...… the box contains the Batman/Penguin 2 pack, two lapel pins, the Hero World 2 pack and socks?

It was unclear if the "HeroWorld!" 2-pack actually comes in the box. (EDIT: It seems that pack is in the box!)

Very cool set... but no action figures? Sad face. Maybe as some future convention exclusive, but I won't get my hopes up.

The "HeroWorld!" figures are cute, in a "Pop!" fashion, but they won't satisfy adults the same way as the 4" articulated line. Sigh.

Interesting that this Catwoman has her mask, the big complaint about her 4" action figure. And Batusi Batman!

I like the heroworld figures 10,000x better than the Pop figures.

I prefer bubble heads to triangular telephone pole legs myself. 😁

That catwoman is reminding me of the tweeterhead statue with the jewel and all...overall pretty, as the kids say today, "meh", I am only really interested in the pop figures!

I wouldn´t mind getting that Batman Pop figure (I don´t know why, but I think the Bat66 releases didn´t make the style of the POPs look bad), and the HeroWorld ones are kinda cute. Anyway, being these exclusive kind of things, I´ll pass, as the shipping would cost way too much.
