If you are a Bat-fan like me, you’ll be thrilled to know Yvonne Craig Batgirl merchandise is finally on the way.
Spotted on Entertainment Earth is a pre-order for Bleacher Creatures’ Batman 1966 TV Series Batgirl 10-Inch Plush.
This appears to be the first Yvonne Craig Batgirl merchandise that has been made available since it was announced that she signed a licensing agreement with Warner Brothers.
Batgirl is listed on the Entertainment Earth site as “Coming in August 2014” with a retail price of $19.99. Also in this series are Batman, Robin, The Joker and Catwoman.
Here are the promo images from EE:
I looked at the official Bleacher Creatures site and currently there is no listing for the Batman series (nor The Hobbit, which is also listed on EE).
The product copy reads: This Batman 1966 TV Series Batgirl 10-Inch Plush Figure is the perfect Batgirl toy for young and old fans alike. Batgirl measures 10-inches tall and is quite the softie! Bleacher Creatures takes all your favorite Batman heroes and villians (sic) and transforms them into soft, lovable characters!
My wife actually has a Bleacher Creatures plush (Sheamus from WWE) and while it does look cool, this style of plush is not for me. I’m not going to go all in on this Batman line. I reserve the right to change my mind when I see the final product though, LOL. For right now I might just get Catwoman.
Either way, this is good news as it means more Yvonne Craig Batgirl merch may start showing up in late summer/fall. I hope.
