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.

Will they do Penguin, Riddler, & Catwoman too? I'd love to see Mad Hatter, King Tut, Bookworm, Mr. Freeze, & Egghead, along with Batgirl. Just wondering if Todd has the guts to follow through with more characters than Mattel did.

If the first wave of 5-6 figures sells well, I don't see why not continue the line with the other aforementioned characters from the show...???

Batman 66 is not my thing but it would be interesting to see this line tackle something a little bit different.

Well, given the job he's done with the rest of his "DC" license, I'd have to say . . . NO.

I'm looking forward to seeing what this line is going to be.   I was considering Mezco's 5 point set with the batmobile, batcave and serveral figures and this news came along.

I have Mattel's Batman 66 figures and Batmobile and it would be great if McFarlane figures could scale with them, but I'm not holding my breathe.

I'm not going to yuck on anyone's yum, but this isn't my interest.   I'm really hoping Toddy Mc will do more of the Batman movies, the Burton/Schumacher era and those Batmobiles.  But I don't want 6" versions of those either, I want them 7" scale.   Everyone has their versions of Bats that they love, I suppose.

I probably going to collect this line since I used to watch this show with my father every afternoon... ???

This sounds awesome, but are the playsets/vehicles gonna be 6" scale too?

I'm in the wait and see mode on this too. Mattel already did all of this with an incredibly expensive batmobile at 5 inches. Mego did a decent job in their traditional style at the slightly larger scale and NECA gave us what I consider the best of the breed with the Adam West Batman at 7 inches - although they are still not forgiven for not making the Burt Ward Robin to go with it even though they made him at the quarter scale level.

So what is left for McFarlane to give us that we have not already seen? Some of you are already jonesin for second round offerings like Batgirl and Catwomen. But let's not forget McFarlane also promised great things during pre launch of his Star Trek line. That line got off the pad but exploded 100 feet above the tower. So again, I am waiting in a once bitten twice shy mode to see what this actually turns into.

I dont think the vehicles are going to be in scale with the figures. Didnt todd mention early on that he wanted to do baf batmobiles not in scale with the figures they come with?
