At this point I'll take anything '66! The line seems to be dwindling unfortunately.

Thanks Keith. This deserves it's own thread!
Now, if we can beat the scalpers and hoarders to the punch (pun intended). 10,000 a piece sounds like a lot, but it really isn't.

And I wonder how this may affect FTC and their Mego-ish line?
Music. BAT! Music.

I love the concept of the "real" Megos returning but they look likey the same bodies that FTC uses which have trouble standing. DC is part of their license, so we'll likely see a Batman and price point wise at $15 for a single figure that's a LOT more reasonable than the going $25-$30 over at FTC.

Still, like Funko (keeping this on topic) I question their choices for Wave 1. I DREAM OF JEANNIE?! I watched it when I was a kid because it was on between THE FLINTSTONES and GILLIGANS ISLAND and in those days of no remote control you just let the TV play but how much demand is there for a line of the show? Ditto starting with Harley Quinn in what looks like a 12" size.

But I'm still glad their back, and being a Target exclusive means they'll be easier to get if you want them.

Maybe, just maybe Mego learned their lesson from the Star Wars debacle and will sell 3.75 figures. Ya never know!

I've not had any luck with these stores in Cleveland because the scalpers always get there first. On any given day, I find the stereotypical shark wading through the aisles and there's some app on their phone that tells them the only value by scanning a barcode. They've made it a science. It's like big game hunting with a Howitzer. There should be a Simpson's episode. They hunted TRU into extinction, the comic shops are nearly gone, and now they'll take down the rest of the box stores.

I bought few if any 66 batman items in any store - never in stock until the very end of the run if then. At least TRU wised up and made some available on line with limits to the customer. Target did the same.

I hear Amazon is gearing up to be the next Mega toy store ... their stock surged today.

I'm curious about Action Jackson - didn't FTC use the head for the goons? Probably need to put it under the Henchmen category
Some days you just can't get rid of a ... SHARK!

In the Funko community, those scabs are called "flippers".
I've known about and dealt with scalpers way back in the 90's, but this new breed is RUTHLESS.

Funko announced a Target exclusive Pikachu today and all hell broke loose on the interwebs.
If you shop at Target towards the end of July, better have a security detail with you. :-)

Landed in San Diego yesterday morning—- this morning I’ll be on the convention floor but everyone is just setting up. Wednesday for certain I will make my way over to the Funko booth and see if there is any representation of Wave II. I’ll also try and make my way to Sideshow to find out about the 1/6 Batmobile. Wednesday is preview night starting at 6 but I have access all day so I should be able to get over there without dealing with crowds.

Funko Booth is not set up at all— the bones are there but there was no product and no people— so no one to ask. Meanwhile, Sideshow was mostly setup but I didn’t see any Batmobile. The floor is a mess right now and you’re taking your life in your hands trying to walk through it with the machinery.

I will have definite word on Funko tomorrow.
