New solicitations listings have gone out to overseas retailers like Big Boys Toy Store for new DC Retro 6" products from McFarlane Toys based on the 66 Batman TV series. The listings show the following items. -Batman 66 - Batmobile ₱1,795.00 = $37US -Batman 66 - Batcave Playset ₱1,795.00 = $37US -Batman 66 - Batman ₱1,100.00 = $22US -Batman 66 - Robin ₱1,100.00 = $22US -Batman 66 - Joker ₱1,100.00 = $22US Some things to note here. These are not listed as DC Multiverse, but as DC Retro. I don't know if that means we will see these designed completely different from the Multiverse figures. The two things that come to my mind when I hear the word "Retro" are either less articulation or cloth like MEGO designs. These are listed with a scale that is 6" over the traditional 7" that McFarlane is known for with their action figures The prices listed overseas might not translate exactly to US prices, but we can't help but notice the low cost of both the Batmobile and Batcave playsets which are both listed as 6" along with the figures. Friday in a video Todd McFarlane did for WonderCon , he mentioned how they were working on a Batmobile and something bigger, which would likely be this Batcave. It's hard to say what a low price might mean for items such as those, but I guess we will just have to see. It's also odd that these are being done in 6" scale as opposed to McFarlane's traditional 7". Many fans since it was first announced McFarlane Toys was taking over the DC license from Mattel had hoped for 6" figures. I suspect this scale will only be limited to these "Retro" figures, but I am sure when folks see these it will renew the demands from some fans to see all DC figures done in the 6" format.
We've seen the set on display at multiple conventions, but Mezco will finally be putting up for pre-order their 5 Points 3.75" Batman (1966): Deluxe Box Set With Batmobile tomorrow (10/7). No word yet on price but the set will contain 3.75" figures that have 5 points of articulation from the 66 Batman TV series. The set looks to feature Batman, Robin, Alfred. Catwoman, Joker, Riddler and Penguin. The collect thing about the set is the 3.75" scale Batmobile from the show which will hold 2 figures. The Batcave backdrop iI believe is part of the packaging made of cardboard. Check out the teaser image released today as well as images from last February's Toy Fair of the set below.
Good idea? https://youtu.be/3jBbWoAtaWc
