Hot Toys rereleases...thoughts?

Post by Lou Szabo »

So Hot Toys is rereleasing select items from their catalog, including the Dark Knight Batman (Bale) and several Iron Man figures.

So how do we feel about a rerelease of a 66Batman and Robin, especially if it were to coincide with a 1/6 scale 66 Batmobile some time in 2022. That latter is just some fun speculation, but HT could capitalize on the release of the Batmobile, however limited. :idea:

Holy co-marketing

Hot toys B&R is on my list, but so expensive. Maybe I can afford the re release

Did they ever release the 66 Joker? Its strange to go to all the trouble making it and even announce it and then back out?

one of the selling points of the batman and robin figures was they would fit in the batmobile...so I am just going to ask..what batmobile? I have never seen anything on their website about buying one ..and I started looking years ago ..so before I think of a reissue of the figures..I want the batmobile in my hands first (yeah I know...800 bucks)

These didn't fly out of stock when they were first introduced. Yes, they are hard to find now, but I am not sure the market is big enough to justify another run. I'd love to see it happen though!

Did they say they were reissuing the ‘66 Batman and Robin, or is that speculation?

No they didn’t say anything, but I’m sure they must be aware of the escalating prices. It seems as the figures near the $1000 mark, they release the figure again. And with the Batmobile coming, well, they could take advantage of the opportunity.

I remember they were displayed at SDCC with a pretty sharp Batmobile that was to scale.
I don't know anything about this Batmobile, but here is a pic

I was lucky to find the Hot Toys Batman last year in a small toy store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas of all places. It had two prices on it...one being $220 and the other $475. The lower price was on the front and it was all I could see from its high perch on top of a cabinet. We found the higher price sticker after she took it down. The young teen girl running the store tried to call the store owner to clarify the price and then sold it to me at the lower price tag when she couldn't contact him. I wasn't trying to pull something over on her but I knew the value. I left Robin there and have big regrets but it was gone on my last visit.

I feel a little bad but boy I wanted that figure and he is in a good, loving home. lol

That Batmobile in the link looks amazing. Spendy, 1049, for base and 1299 for deluxe. If I had it, I would spend it on that. Do you have any idea if it is the same manufacturer as the batmobile pictured from comic con?
So a little over 2k for a whole set to display.

The one that you saw at SDCC all of those eons ago Jimmy was the proto that Hot Toys themselves were developing. The incredible version in the link above is being produced by an un-licensed indie maker. Similarly to you, it's very much something I would love to have in my collection eventually but there's certainly a few things ranking higher on my list of priorites at the moment. Turns out getting married is not what you describe as "cheap"? Who knew?! :lol:

Oh, just wait, young padawan, just wait. The price of admission is nothing compared to what it's going to cost you in the long run... ;)
