Holy 6" Retro 66 Batman Figures From McFarlane Toys

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.

All of the Targets where I live have tons of this stuff and it's a mixed bag. The Batmobile is terrible and way too small and the cave is even smaller and cheap as it gets. It'd be worth it only for a diorama that is supposed to feature some forced perspective shots. It's one of the most disappointing releases in my 40 years of collecting. The figures features superior paint over the Mattel figs, and I think the heads have even grown on me, but they're missing paint details that the Mattel figs didn't miss, and the capes are better on Mattel. You also get a superior unmasked Bruce Wayne head with the Mattel's Batcave playset, but the one thing they don't have is the unmasked Robin and masked Joker from The Movie.

The unmasked Batman I can live without plus I don't think it looks like West. I do have the Bat and Robin figs and they're not bad. Batman looks more on point that Robin. I'm getting the Joker with the cave, and the batmobile soon. Can't wait to have this set up. Much cheaper than the mezco 3.75 inch version of that.

Now this set is a classic I can just imagine the amazing toy photography shots that will come from this set really nostalgic even though this is before my era I was born in 1992 but I still recognize and appreciate this wonderful set

So I preordered all these back in July just so I could compare them in hand with the Mattel ones but my suspicion was that I was probably not going to need them since I already had the Mattel stuff and that the only one I would likely keep would be the Batcave since that was something Mattel never did. So of course my Batcave preorder is the one that Target decides to cancel months later.....,

Yes, at a Target about 8 miles from my house. Still hoping to find a masked Joker!
