This summer Cartoon Network will replace the awesome Batman: The Brave and the Bold with a new Dark Knight animated series. Beware the Batman has the caped crusader teaming up with swordmistress Katana and his ex-secret agent butler Alfred Pennyworth to fight Gotham’s criminal underworld. A 6-inch version of this upcoming Batman featuring a new sculpt will hit retail in September or you can preorder him here.
Toys R Us landed this exclusive three-pack celebrating Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy of films. Each version of the Batman shows off the progression of character’s costume throughout the three movies. The maskless Dark Knight Rises figure includes either a removable mask or a broken headpiece. This set is available now or you can pre-order here.
Mezco kicked off its New York Toy Fair announcements early this week with a sneak peek at several new action figure lines. First off, we got a closer look at the Walter White/Heisenberg fig from Breaking Bad. Another big announcement revolved around the new Axe Cop line of toys. Mezco also expanded its 14-inch ThunderCats line with Cheetara, who now sports ball jointed hips. The little green guys from Mars Attacks will soon get their own 3.75-inch line of figures along with a 24-inch tall Martian (not pictured). MTV Geek got the exclusive on the new DC Universe Mez-Its including characters from Man of Steel and The Dark Knight. For more pics and announcements, check out the Mezco website. Special thanks to journalist John Charles for the non-MTV pics and info.
