A new line of Bat-Collectibles are on their way, as McFarlane Toys present a new line of retro Batman ’66 figures and playsets. Not only do we get Batman, Robin, and Joker, there’s also the ’66 Batmobile and a ’66 Batcave playset to boot.
We all know the McFarlane line of DC-inspired toys are very popular, particularly with a certain Dark Knight News writer you will all know, called Max Byrne, and these will no doubt be the same. I’m also a massive fan of the Batman ’66 show; it was my first introduction to the Dark Knight. These toys are something that I’ll be looking to pick up myself at some point when the budget allows. They look fantastic. But you can make your own mind up, by checking out the details and images, below.
“To the Batmobile!” Batman and Robin have many gadgets in their arsenal, but none more hi-tech and stylish than the Batmobile—ready to power on with the touch of a button. When the Dynamic Duo find themselves faced with imminent danger, laser beams, magnets, and a parachute jettison button become quite useful. And there’s no need to worry about villainous takeovers, good citizen; the Anti-Theft Activator is all the Caped Crusader needs to protect his invaluable vehicle.
Designed with rolling wheels and a rotating steering wheel and packaged in a card-backed blister with the iconic old-school look of the 1960’s Batman series. MSRP $29.99. Figures sold separately.
The Batcave Playset
“To the Batpoles!” With the push of a Shakespeare bust button, Bruce and Dick are transported into the vast Batcave and transformed into Batman and Robin. Housing the Batcomputer and a host of gadgets, the Dynamic Duo solves crimes and is always alert for trouble in Gotham City. Now, it’s time for Batman and Robin to teach the villains that crime doesn’t pay!
Batcave comes with eight monitors, machines, and batcomputer, batpoles, and loft with ladder, for Batman and Robin to fight crime and keep tabs on those dastardly villains. MSRP $29.99.
Batman, Robin, and Joker
Kapow! The debonair millionaire Bruce Wayne may seem like your average cool cat, but you would be wrong! With the flip of a Shakespeare head bust and… to the Batcave! Gotham City is filled with a rogue’s gallery of criminals eager to unmask the Batman, but the Caped Crusader’s clever ways thwart them.
“Holy Boy Wonder, Batman!” How lucky can orphan Dick Grayson get? He gets taken in by the wealthiest man in Gotham City, who happens to be Batman. He gets to live in a mansion complete with a cave, gets to kick the villain’s butt, and cruises around in the world’s coolest car.
Who is the impractical joker with a key to crime? With a maniacal laugh, a twisted sense of humor, and a penchant for setting cunning traps, The Joker is one of Batman’s most notoriously fiendish foes. But when it comes to putting an end to The Joker’s crime sprees, Batman knows firsthand that The Joker’s jokes are never very funny in the end.
I’m sure you’ll all be in agreement, that these are pretty great. The new McFarlane line of Batman ’66 toys is now available for pre-order at Target – but be quick, I’m expecting these to go as fast as the Batmobile speeds out of the Batcave.
Let us know if you’ll be picking all, or some of these up, and please give us a nudge and tell us what you think of them.
