Mattel 1966 Batman TV Show
Holy molded plastic Batman!! The license for the 1966 Batman TV series has finally been released to companies and Mattel is going to BAT (HAHA)! Check out these great reveals including The Riddler, Robin, Batman (in packaging), and The Batmobile!!!! Oh and don’t worry fans, Caeser Romero’s Joker is on the way, with mustache!!
Hasbro Marvel Comics
Hasbro has been a little lackluster with its Marvel Legends as of late, but this time around we are seeing some great characters getting the treatment! The hardest thing is seeing that Rocket Raccoon is only available as a build a figure! Not nice Hasbro! Also Hasbro showed off the Thor: The Dark World series, and also some of their new 3.75″ figs! Rogue is getting the love this time around, available in her current outfit in Marvel Legends form and the Jim Lee look in MU 3.75 inch! Bout time!
