Have you been wondering why you haven't been able to find the latest 6" comic based Batman figures from Mattel at retail lately? It's because the large retail chains have decided to focus on Mattel's other Batman lines like the smaller scaled "The Batman"
figures based on the animated series showing on the KidsWB, and Batman Begins
line based on the upcoming new Batman movie.
All is not lost for you 6" comic based figure fans though. Dan Salazar from Mattel has confirmed for us that these figures will now be released through Diamond Comic Distributors
. Dan didn't have a lot of details to release to us as things are still being hammered out, but this means is you will be able to find your favorite 6" figures at comic and specialty markets here in the United States. As we learn more details about this deal, we'll be sure to pass the info on to you.
