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.

The figures look like they were upgraded from the 5POA standard. I'm on the fence at this line unless these are heavily discounted. Between this 1966 Batman and the Todd-designed Batman, I think I'll just grab the latter.

Well yeah, much more than 5 POA. The videos show that.

I really want to like these but something just seems off. Especially with Batman. His shoulders are angled wierd, the waist seems to have a gap in it and the capes look horrible.

Wow, Those are really . . . TERRIBLE.

Most of the Batcave furnishings are tiny, and the Joker is huge.

I don't get it, McFarlane has made action figures before, nice ones. There's no excuse for these.

I already have the superior 1966 Mattel figs and Batmobile, but that Batcave set will be something to get to go along with Mattel's Batcave they put out. This new one is much more elaborate, but the Mattel computer console will fit in nicely with this hopefully. The figures are garbage, although I might get the masked Joker and removal mask Robin just because we didn't get those in Mattel. I got the Bruce Wayne head with the Cave.

UPDATE 2: McFarlane says the figures will be available in-store in August and online in September.UPDATE: Looks like only the Batcave and Batmobile went up for pre-order this morning. The figures are listed but they say coming soon. No word yet on when they will actually be available for pre-order.

I just feel like all the DC pieces from McFarlane are "off" somehow. I haven't seen even one I really like. They're just...fine.

You are certainly not the only one.
