Some interesting comments. You can see the hinges in the Batcave walls to the left of the atomic pile. The Batmobile doors may open? Jokers hair looks good.

The figures look pretty good, but I expected more detail from McFarlane. A scale "batcave" playset,or just the computers and such, is a huge selling point for me. Another Batmobile? sure, throw it on the tab.
I'm in.

The Cave looks to be a must for me, but those Batman & Robin figures are whacked. Joker looks darn skippy, better than any other 6" produced so far. I disagree with the poster on that pages comments about the Batmobile, don't think it's 'Shopped at all, just think that the camera caught some light on a seam dimple on the car.

The atomic pile is just the front piece and appears attached to the at least 3 piece Batcave wall. My guess is the Batcave will be 4 to 5 wall pieces, the back, the exit, the batpoles and two in between pieces. I put a red circle around the hinges. If it has a floor, they can make a rotating base for the Batmobile.

Ideas from this and Renato's earlier design seem to be captured in the cave.

I’m stunned that McFarlane is showing some of the worst likenesses to come from the license (almost as shocked as the fact that we’re getting another Batmobile in this scale), but the Batcave playset looks like a heckuva lot of fun. I can't wait to get that for my son. We're gonna have a lot of fun with it.

I'll probably get the batcave to use for displaying my Mattel figures. But the figures don't do it for me

Is anyone else getting Michael J Fox as Robin vibes? Just me?!

Don't get me wrong, i'm totally in on this for the Batcave alone. Likenesses aside, there is something really fun and sturdy looking to me about this set in comparison to the Mattel.

Adam fares better than Burt here. I like that he’s not scrawny like Mattel did and no dad bod like Funko and Hot Toys did. Batman’s chest emblem is more towards his chest than on his stomach like a lot of manufacturers do. Robins belt is too high which throws off the costume, but I do see a 40 year old Michael J Fox there.

Something about Batman's mouth on this figure reminds me of Cornelius from Planet of the Apes...

It looks like Ward was replaced by a young Jim Bakker....
