Holy 6″ Mattel Collectable Figures, Batman!

February 9th, 2013 by Marc Comments


USA Today has posted images of the 6″ Adam West Batman action figure along with the in scale Batmobile from the 1966 TV series.

The figures and car are out this July. Figures are priced at $15.99 and the car is $49.99.  Also available in the range are Frank Gorshin’s Riddler and Burgess Meredith’s Penguin.

We at FTN love the look of these figures and the addition of the in-scale Batmobile is a stroke of genius!  No word yet on whether figures of the Boy Wonder himself Robin, or the pesky Catwoman will be available, but keep your Bat-eyes open for any more Bat-news on the new Bat-figures as and when we get it.

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….
