Pics of the upcoming release of 1966 Batman toys by Mattel has made me feel like everyday is Christmas Eve with anticipation of the release of action figures and a certain Bat-Vehicle this July.
However, the pics that have come from the 2013 Toy Fair have lead us to believe certain figures would be released this summer, but all may not be as it seems citizens.
According to the new PREVIEWS catalog for comic book shops, the first wave of Batman '66 figures from Mattel will be:
- Batman (with Batusi hands) SDCC exclusive
- Wall climbing two pack Batman and Robin
- Batman with PINK "RADIOACTIVE" COWL (from the episode "The Contaminated Cowl")
That's correct Bat-Fans, no Surfing Batman or Surfing Joker for that matter. On one hand I was hoping that there would eventually be a contaminated cowl version of the Caped Crusader, but I was looking forward to getting the Surfing Batman and on the other hand and a positive one, Mattel is planning a second wave that would most likely include a Surfing Batman.
Keeping tuning in Bat-Fans, as soon as have a pic of the "Radioactive Cowl" version of Batman I'll get it posted. Until then, how does everyone feel about this news?
