Mezco will soon feature Adam West and Burt Ward as their classic TV characters in a new wave of vinyl figures. Just like the 1966 Batman TV show, this series will feature the Batmobile based on the vision of crazy car designer George Barris, along with Batman’s rogue’s gallery of The Penguin, The Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler and a Riddler thug. These should hit stores in July.
Powie!!! Mezco will go back to 1966 for its next vinyl Batmobile set. Whammm!!! 2-inch versions of Adam West and Burt Ward as their caped crusaders can ride in the cockpit. Zzzzwap!!! It will release in July or you can pre-order it here.
we showed you the first images of Mattel’s 1966 Batman line of action figures. ToyNewsi.com
snapped more pics over the weekend at Toy Fair of the 6-inch scale toys. Look for these in July for around $15 per fig.
Hot Toys posted this “behind the scenes” pic on its Facebook page of its various Batman movie vehicles. This comes after the company announced a new license for the Batman TV show from the 1960′s that will include the Batmobile along with 1/6 scale action figures.
“Besides collectible figures, Hot Toys also brings the giant movie vehicles into reality – The Bat, Camouflage Batmobile and Bat-pod from the highly anticipated The Dark Knight Rises movie (2012), Batmobile in different designs from The Dark Knight (2008), Batman (1989), and Batman 1966 Live-action TV Series!”
