Dust off the Batpoles and charge the atomic batteries to power because McFarlane Toys is dipping back into Batman: The Classic Series
In a move that will have Batman ’66 fans dancing the Batusi in delight; McFarlane Toys has announced plans to produce a new range of figures from Batman: The Classic Series. Not only will the DC Multiverse line boast new Adam West Batman and Burt Ward Robin figures; but a new Cesar Romero Joker figure will also be making its bow.
HOLY AWESOMENESS, BATMAN!
And if that isn’t enough to have us sliding down the bat poles in our cape and cowl, McFarlane will also be producing the classic Batmobile and Batcave playset! But don’t take my word for it. Check out the official teaser image that hit the wires over the weekend:
HOLY HOLE IN A DOUGHNUT!
I don’t know about you, but the Batman ’66 fan inside me just had a panic attack. These are dream figures for me. And although I have already collected the 6″ line from a few years back, the DC Multiverse versions have shot straight to the top of my most-wanted list. Sadly, as of press time, there is no official release date attached to the image. Nor do we have confirmation of when pre-orders will go live. However, we can officially confirm that these figures will deviate from the traditional 7″ DC Multiverse scale. Instead, they will revert to the popular 6″ scale.
This change back to the 6″ scale makes perfect sense, especially when considering the proposed scale of the Batmobile and Batcave sets. The Batmobile alone would have to be considerably larger to accommodate a 7″ wave of action figures. And I shudder to think of the finished size of the Batcave.
As soon as more information about these figures arrives we’ll update the site. In the meantime, check back here next week. Same bat time….same bat channel!
