That's the dream at least.
I find that the more I look at stuff like this (merchandise that I really don't need), the more the "WOW! I need this NOW!" factor wears off. So far that hasn't happened with these though. Yikes, just might get them. I'll wait for in hand pictures first.
Personally, I never had the "WOW! I need this NOW!" factor wear off because I never had an interest in the majority of 21st century '66 items produced. So, when Hot wheels released their diecast Batmobile and Batcycle, I was there. When Auto Art released their 1:18 scale Black Beauty, I was there. When Hot Toys released their '66 figures, I was there, too, so my longtime collecting focus was satisfied.
I was never interested in Mattel's 6-inch line, or the products of any company that--for some reason--thinks every adult collector has a desire to see licensed TV and movie characters in the Kenner Star Wars
3 3/4-inch scale (or even an inch taller), when I would say when those adults were kids playing
with the Kenner line (*raises hand*), its a good chance they were never wishing for that series to have a similarly scaled line.
The only other '66 item that would spark that "I need this now" fuse is that Hot Toys scaled Batmobile for reasons stated above, so i'm glad my '66 toy interests just happened to be met, but I was never going to be burned out on it.
Perhaps the very last thing that would ever have me go into "MUST HAVE" mode is a soundtrack of the entire series.
