That beacon on the McF looks more accurate than the Mattel version. If I see one, I may need to buy it....

I did buy the later release of the Mattel a year or so ago - the one with both Batman and Robin included. I'll have to rebuy the Batcave Batman from Mattel to get that Batcomputer.

New Update: Batcave delayed another week to August 17, and I had to approve the delay. Watch your email for the delay notice from Target

A friend of mine was sent some of the McFarlane 66 figures (he works in licensing). Just thought I’d share this image with y’all. I think the figures look much better here than in previous images I’d seen.

That packaging looks great. Not sure why it’s 12+ for ages, as I would have thought 5+ would work. Can you see a little kid getting carded because he wants a Batman figure? :lol:

It's kind of a shame that the capes have to be flippped up like that. I suppose I would open them anyway, but it you want to display them in their package it kind of messes with the aesthetic :/

Not fussed on these. If I was getting them, I would certainly be removing the scallops from Robin's cape. He just looks too young here. And I think Mattel did the cowl/cape meeting better.

What I did order, though, was the McFarlane Batcave (I had originally assumed it was coming with figures, so I was pleased it doesn't) and it should work very nicely with the Mattel line) and a McFarlane Joker, since the squared shoulders of Mattel's Joker really annoys me. McFarlane face sculpt seems excellent.

I think the in hand photos look so much better than what I've seen before. Yeah Robin is a bit too cherub but I've never been a Robin fan anyway so easy pass for me. Batman actually looks good-- amazing how placing the chest emblem up higher than Funko and Mezco did simply gives him less of a "Dad bod" and makes him look less frumpy.

I just checked Target and still out of stock, but I noticed the whole line has nothing but 1 Star reviews with no commentary which makes me suspect it's angry collectors who are mad that they are out of stock, rather than judging the actual figures.

Did you see the guy on eBay selling a Batcave out of Australia?

Yes, this Batcave coming from elsewhere in Australia.

I hope nobody is paying scalper prices. On the Target app they are listed with add to cart buttons now, still out of stock but I suspect available soon enough.
