FIRST LOOK: DC’s beautiful Batman: The Animated Series figures have a Batmobile coming…

February 12th, 2015 by Marc Comments


DC Collectibles have just revealed the October wave of their beautiful Batman: The Animated Series figures…

And while the figures themselves are beautiful – Nightwing, Mad Hatter, Bane, Scarecrow… it’s the car we want.

Yes, there’s a new Batmobile in the range and, frankly, they had us hello.

It’s 24inches long, can seat two 6inch figures, has light up headlights and independent moving wheels.

Chicks dig the car.

There has never been a Batmobile based off the series in this scale before, and we are very excited to be the first,” Kevin Kiniry, Vice President, Creative Services at DC Entertainment said via statement to MTV News.

But that’s not all! There’s also a two-pack of figures from the best Batman movie ever made, “Mask of the Phantasm” (yeah, deal with that, “Dark Knight” fans):

And if THAT wasn’t enough, DC Collectibles is also releasing their Wave 5 action figures: Mad Hatter, Bane, Nightwing and Scarecrow:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
