Review: Mattel - Batman Classic TV Series To The Batcave! Batman Action Figure And Accessories

To the Batcave! Batman action figure and accessories
Holy Catastrophe Batman!

Just to be clear off the "Bat", the above caption is from the packaging of Mattel's latest Batman action figure and does not have direct correlation with my opinion of this toy. Or maybe it does. So, with out further adieu, To The Batcave!

Well, not really the Batcave, but another revamped version of Mattel's original Classic TV Series Batman action figure. It appears to basically be a  repackaged Batman figure, which includes an interchangeable Adam West sculpted Bruce Wayne head, and is consistent with Mattel's typical style of repurposing it's figures.

Review: Mattel - Batman Classic TV Series Batgirl Toys R Us/SDCC Exclusive Action Figure

Mattel's 66' Batgirl SDCC Exclusive
Holy femininity! Mattel has finally made the Dynamic Duo into the Terrific Trio.
When comparing Figures Toy Company's production of '66 Batman action figures with Mattel's, the later has been definitely slacking. While Figures Toy Company has been regularly cranking out new characters from the beloved Batman TV Series, we have been lucky to get one figure a year from Mattel since toys based on the TV series had their initial release. Although new figures have been promised, toy collectors and Bat-Fans finally have their yearly fix fulfilled by Mattel with the addition of the Batgirl action figure as a San Diego Comic Con Exclusive.
