Naturally, the news is exciting, but I'm reserving a Woo-Hoo until we see some pictures from Toy Fair.

One thing that I think is great is that the merchandise will be at different price points from mass merchandising to collector editions. Everyone gets a chance to share the love that way!

I hope Mattel makes a nice, in-scale Batmobile for the 6" figures. That way I won't feel the need to buy the Hot Toys version so badly!!! :D

I'm interested in seeing what Funko does. This property is a natural for bobble heads.

Wondering what "colorfully detailed vinyl figures" means. Is that a fancy way of saying plastic statues?
