  1. Glaring MIA: Bride of Frankenstein & Bela Lugosi's Dracula. Creature From the Black Lagoon & Phantom of the Opera would be nice.
  2. Disappointed that Todd didn't add any new Batman Animated figures to the DC Direct offerings. Mostly statues & a few decay action figures. The DC Multiverse figures are OK. A few villains are finally being made. The retro Batman 66 line figures are repaints. Julie Newmar Catwoman & Otto Preminger Mr. Freeze had been rumored, but I guess those just aren't happening. Mixed bag enthusiasm
  3. Great looking figure. It resembles Eartha Kitt's version of Catwoman very close to the way she appeared on the Batman '66 TV series in the third season. I've read that McFarlane's next Batman '66 retro waive is going include a "first season" Catwoman as a SDCC exclusive, which is Julie Newmar. I suspect it will be the same figure as Eartha Kitt's, but will have a Julie Newmar head. Additionally, there will be two more Batman & Joker figures, which will be repaints to resemble them in Black & White. The fourth figure will be an all new villain, Otto Preminger's version of Mr. Freeze. Wondering if McFarlane will continue to produce this line. Several "must have" villains will be scooped up by fans, like Egghead, Bookworm, Mad Hatter, & King Tut. I can also see McFarlane making an Eli Wallach version of Mr. Freeze and John Astin version of Riddler, if he agrees to licensing his likeness to McFarlane. Would he do Alfred, Aunt Harriet, Chief O'Hara or Commissioner Gordon? Batgirl is a no-go due to Yvonne Craig's estate putting a kibosh on that figure.
  4. Stunning scene between Pattinson and Koeghan. Reeves' version of the Joker might be the most horrific version I've every scene. It will be interesting to see if the character makes it into future movies. He looks like he has been through the meat grinder.
  5. Yes, it's true. Yvonne Craig's estate is very difficult to deal with so don't expect to see a retro 66 Batgirl. For some reason she held on to her own licensing rights, separate from the TV Show. Otto's Mr. Freeze, Eli Wallach's Mr. Freeze, Victor Bruno's King Tut, David Wayne's Mad Hatter, Vincent Price's Egghead, Eartha Kitt's Catwoman, & Roddy McDowell's Bookworm are available for McFarlane to use in the action figure line. I'm surprised he didn't do Egghead first beyond the main big four TV villains of Joker, Penguin, Riddler, & Catwoman.
  6. John Cena has lost a lot of weight since his time in the WWE. I'm sure he's totally changed his workout regimen and would bet that he doesn't take supplements to build muscle mass. He's much thinner in the face, but that comes with age too.
  7. Burgess Meredith's Penguin is missing his cigarette holder & umbrella, while I hope we eventually see a Julie Newmar Catwoman, who made the role iconic. I did read that due to problems with Yvonne Craig's estate, there won't be a Batgirl action figure. I know that some other collectable companies have run into similar problems with her estate resulting in Batgirl being left out of other Batman '66 collectable lines.
  8. Love seeing these figures in the works. Julie Newmar's Catwoman & Burgess Meredith's Penguin will be great additions. I've got to wonder if Todd will continue the '66 line beyond these villains? Mattel stopped except they did make a '66 Alfred at the end of the license. So Todd, will Otto Preminger's Mr. Freeze, David Wayne's Mad Hatter, Vincent Price's Egghead, Victor Bruno's King Tut, & Roddy McDowell's Bookworm ever see the light of day?
  9. It doesn't surprise me. McFarlane has produced DC Multiverse figures like crazy. Every day is an announcement of a new figure or wave of figures. Todd is on a roll. I don't know how he's keeping up with all of these figures.
  10. The body looks a little out of kilter, but nice face with mask. Certainly interesting new McFarlane selection. It seems like a new figure is being announced everyday.
  11. McFarlane's Batman-centric toys aren't surprising since this movie is getting one of the biggest pushes by Warner Brothers in some time. The studio is very bullish on its success stemming from the overwhelming response it has gotten by preview audiences. As far as DC Comics going bankrupt, I don't think we'll see them going out of business anytime soon. Batman and his supporting cast will continue to be popular with both collectors and the general public for many years to come. Batman is definitely a part of American culture. I do think McFarlane has made a huge effort to make a lot of other DC characters in this line. Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern & several other superheroes have been released by Todd. Heck, his Swamp Thing is amazing.
  12. This is terrific news. Hopefully, McFarlane will continue the line with the other announced figures Talon, Hush, Vampire Batman, Thomas Wayne, Batgirl repaint, & TNBA Robin repaint. All of the figures had prototypes made except Hush, which were shown at DC Direct's SDCC presentation in 2019 and Toy Fair 2020. DC Direct had promised to keep the line going.
  13. No Riddler, why? Too violent of a villain to turn into a toy? Spin Master may not want kids playing with a psychopathic serial killer. Now that's just me.
  14. These remind me of the old Playmates Star Trek line, which was extensive over the years. I collected them & then had them all stolen out of my storage locker. Playmates went deep in all of the characters on all of the various Star Trek shows. This line could go on for years, from Classic to Next Generation to Deep Space 9 to Voyager to Enterprise to Discovery to Picard and all the other current Star Trek shows, plus the many movies and animated shows.
