In celebration of Batman's 80th Anniversary Mattel will be releasing a few Batman themed exclusives at this years San Diego Comic Con. First up for their 6" DC Multiverse line they are doing a Silver-Age themed 4-pack titled 80-page Giant Batman which will feature figures of Negative Suit Batman from Detective Comics #284, Zebra Batman from Detective Comics #275, Rainbow Batman, from Detective Comics #241 and Batman in his traditional blue and grey outfit. This set will cost $80.

They also will be doing a Batman themed Hotwheels set featuring an armored shell and Batmobile shell from the original Tim Burton movies. This will be $25.

Both sets will have limited availability on the Mattel website after the con for those who can't attend but what to get their hands on these.

I love these reveals from Mattel. Looking forward to the 80 page giant set, $80 is a good price for these, $20 per figure about retail.

To me this is the best SDCC exclusive so far this year!

You did read the part about these being 4" figures right? As in NOT the 6" scale stuff in stores.

Yes, looks like a typo as the picture shows the ruler at 6”-7”.

Both of these will be definite must buys for me at this year’s Con.  A good showing from Mattel’s SDCC offerings so far this year.  Love what I’ve seen they are bringing to the show this year thus far.

So based on what I’ve read about the ‘89 Hot Wheel I think the armor is just a shell that goes on top of the Batmobile itself.  I’m wondering if/how that works if you want to keep it all in its fancy Comic Con packaging.  I’m guessing the armor shell piece is in a compartment either above or below the actual  Batmobile compartment

Was actually a typo on my part, my bad. These are 6". You can see the image with the ruler and Mattel hasnt done 4" figures for years now.

I think if you want to use the shell you would just have to open it.

And haven't they done a Hot Wheels Keaton Batmobile already? Your just basically getting the shell and a nice box over what they released previously right?

I think the figure might be new.  And the cocoon is most likely not.  In 2003 or 2004 there was a collectors set with the Batmobile and the cocoon, and it wasn't a shell at all, but a solid piece. They released another one around 2010, based on the Returns version. That one opened to show the car's roof underneath.  Can't tell which one this is in the set here from just the one pic.

I saw some people complaining about the Batman figure set and was surprised because I thought it looked pretty neat. Hopefully they're plentiful enough that they aren't too hard to acquire. 
I love the box art on that one too!

It will be their last DC multiverse SDCC exclusive if thats what you mean.

I could probably walk around my DC collection room to see for sure but is this the first time they’ve done cloth goods capes in multiverse?

Ok, just walked through my DC room and quickly got the answer to my own question, and yes, there have been other cloth capes in the Multiverse line.  Among the ones I noticed right away were Batman Forever, Gotham by Gaslight Bats, Superfriends Batman and Superman, and the figures from the SDCC BvS set and the SDCC Man of Steel set (although I don’t recall rather MoS figures were considered part of Multiverse or part of its own line).

Don't forget the Justice League movie Multiverse line: Superman, Batman and Tactical Suit Batman.

Mattel has released an updated description and images for their 2019 SDCC Exclusive DC Comics The Strange Lives of Batman Action Figure Multipack which you can check out below.

Celebrate DC's silver age with four captivating Batman action figures from a beloved era in comics' history! Each version of the legendary Super Hero is highly detailed, with premium costume, cloth cape and an enhanced 23 points of articulation. Silver Age Batman dons his iconic blue and grey Batsuit with prominent utility belt. Negative Batman wears his black costume from #284, when he was struck by a crime scientist's ray and rendered light averse. Zebra-Batman confronted a magnetically charged Super-Villain in #275 who scrambled his powers and blanked his Batsuit into black and white waves. The Rainbow Batman from #241 vies to save Robin by changing into bright colors and successfully distracts murderous thieves. This compelling action figure set also includes four interchangeable heads to recreate even more Silver Age heroes including: Rip Van Batman from #119, Alien Batman #251, the Robot Twin of Batman from #239 and Bruce Wayne. With the wide variety of commemorative figures, fans can create a dynamic displays and unique vintage collection! The retro comics' graphics packaging also makes the 80th Anniversary: Silver Age of Batman set an extraordinary gift. Colors and decorations may vary.

This set along with the other Mattel SDCC exclusives are available for pre-order on the Mattel website for convention pick up. We don't know why it says Available to ship on August 12, 2019 in tiny text or why it says this set requires 3 AA (R6) Carbon Zinc batteries.

I always find it interesting when something that seems ridiculous manages to look appealing in toy form. I kinda want the Zebra Batman.
