A new review! Yeah! This is a special review because I am having a look at one of my favourite action figures; Catwoman from the Batman ’66 series. It’s based on the likeness of the ultra-sexy Julie Newmar. To make this review a little more fun I made sure to do it in cosplay. Yep, I put on my Catwoman costume. Have a look at the video below:
Have you been waiting for another one of my video reviews? Then wait no longer! One of my top Funko POP! picks of 2013, The Batmobile. Before we begin, did you read my top 10 list of Funko POP!s for 2013? If not, you can give that a look here. OK, now that you have seen that, let’s take a look at one of the coolest releases from Funko:
Fans of the Batman TV show are going to be thrilled to find out that the original Catwoman, Julie Newmar will be making a special signing appearance in Los Angeles October 5th and 6th. Julie will be attending the Hollywood Show where fans can meet the star for autographs and photos. The Hollywood Show is taking place at The Westin Los Angeles Airport at 5400 W Century Blvd.
It’s a great time to be a Julie “Catwoman” fan as several collectible items are being released that feature her sexy iconic super villain image. Action figures, bobbleheads and dolls have started popping up. Here is a short list of cool stuff you can collect:
Sideshow Collectibles showed off the Sixth Scale Batman figures from the 1966 film at SDCC this year. WOW! POW! BAM! KA-BOOM... HOLY S#*T, They are incredible! We were blown away. I remember just standing in front of the display case in amazement. I believe there was a bit of drool involved as well.
My first question in my head was "When will these go on sale? I need these!" I finally got the answer. I received a email from Sideshow yesterday with the links to the Pre-order. You can per-order now and these guys will ship in April 2014. Yes, it's 7 months away, but it's going to be worth the wait. These will sell-out I'm sure. So, don't hesitate too long. This would be a great gift to ask Santa for this year.
Adam West is and will always be the BEST Batman of all time! This figure features every detail you can imagine. When I viewed the promo shots for the first time, I though I was looking at the real Adam West! The figure comes with a variety of accessories including interchangeable faces and hands, Bat Radio, a Big Bomb, Batarang, shark repellent spray & figure stand with Batman nameplate and Batman logo. Approximately 12 inches tall with 30 points of articulation. Retail on this hero is $205. But Sideshow has got you cover with a monthly payment option if needed.
Pre-order and view full details here.
Robin will stand nicely along with his partner in crime. He's a must as well. Again, the detail is insane. Burt Ward as the Boy Wonder is a all-time american hero classic. Robin stands 11 inches tall with 30 points of articulation. He also comes with all the bells & whistles including interchangeable hands, Batarang, Bat Radio & Bat-cuffs. Robin retails for $190.
Pre-order Robin here.
There is a Batmobile for these figures in the works as well. There is no release or price info yet. Stay tuned to the same Bat Channel (here) for future information.
Ever since the release of the Batman Classic TV series figures by Mattel, we’ve been on the hunt! These figures are available online through Entertainment Earth, Big Bad Toy Store among many others. But that’s too easy. Where’s the fun in that!
I remember the days of collecting figures by going store to store trying to find the ones you want before Internet sales where available. So we decided to go back into time when we were teen collectors and do it old school. So far we’ve been pretty lucky in the past couple of weeks. We picked up the Batman and Robin 2-pack, regular Batman, The Riddler & The Penguin on cards. While we were at Comic Con, we picked up the Batusi TV Shag box set for $35. We missed out on the Toys “R” Us exclusive Batmobile while at the “Con” that fits the Classic TV Series 6 inch figures. But we were lucky to have gotten that through the Toys R Us site for $59.99. Yes, we cheated a little on that order. But it was our only chance! They sell-out like hotcakes! LOL. We were not going to pay aftermarket eBay prices, that’s for sure!
So the hunt continues for The Joker and Surf Batman. The Catwoman figures does not release until next month. But she’s definitely a must-have! We’ve been having success on the carded figures at Walmart for $15.97ea. We picked up the Batman and Robin 2-pack at our local Toys “R” Us for $34.99. We’ve been checking Target weekly but it seems that they have not stocked these figures yet.
You know, I’ve always enjoyed picking up figures in person myself. If there’s more than one available you get the check them out, pick out the best paint job, make sure that the packaging doesn’t have any creases, it’s just a better experience.
So far we’ve been extremely happy with the figures we picked up. The carded figures come with stands and collectible cards that are incredible. There seems to be a puzzle on the back of the cards that may complete a picture when you’ve collected them all, but we only have 3 cards so it’s hard to tell. The figures have many, many points of articulation so you could pose them anyway you want. The quality and the paint application are amazing and they resemble the TV actors down to every detail.
We will post pictures of the Batmobile once we receive it & will continue to update you on recent scores. We can’t wait!
Thanks for checking this out! Good luck on your hunts for these Classic figures.
