DC Collectibles' Batman the Animated Series 6" Figures

Recommended Posts

There are four figures in that image I don't have; Ventriloquist, Talia, Expressions Batman, and Holiday Joker. #worthit

 

Sadly, I'm imagining the folks left after Kevin's departure looking at the racks of samples in the office and asking, "Okay, what do we do with all this stuff? How about a giveaway?"

This was due out in May. Reportedly it's the very first SKU from this line to be canceled. I had noticed it disappeared from Amazon a couple weeks ago. I won't say NO ONE asked for it but it wasn't very high on many wish lists I read, if it was on them at all.

 

Hopefully DCC replaces it with a less expensive Batcycle that includes helmeted noggins of Bat-characters. That would encourage multiple purchases.

I don't even remember that car from the series.

I just got a notification from BBTS that my Batcave will be arriving in the next 10 days. Looking forward to getting it and putting Old Man Bruce in the chair with Ace at his side.

Good news! I'm envious. 

 

I just know that when I get the Batcave I'll want a trophy area and costume display to go with it.

The car is neat looking, but every time I look at that stupid Batmobile sitting on my floor I am reminded of my poor choices. I am just hoping that there are going to be people out there willing to sell Alfred separately from the Batcave.

I'm probably not going to have a trophy area, but I would like to have the costume memorials. I just need to get those figures and work out how to modify the heads so they look like they are on mannequins.

One of the all-time great customizers, Casimir, has some stuff available for download at his site:

You might have to scale it to work with the 6" line, but you could probably make it work.

The box the Batcave shipped in is going to be a guest wing on the cardboard mansion I'm building from all these large playset boxes (HT HoA, MOTUC Grayskull, etc). Its where I'm going to live when my wife finally kicks me out.

Glad you're thinking ahead. Hopefully your next wife appreciates a man with a plan... and has a much bigger house for your toys. :D

 

What are the dimensions on that base? My biggest shelves only go back 12".

So... I got the Batwing for Christmas. I haven't opened it yet. In fact, I can't go near it. I haven't decided if I actually want the blasted thing or not. It's just so big. So very big.

And it gets even more impressive once it's assembled. You'll definitely need some dedicated wall space. I really wish DCC had found a way to offer those wall brackets, even if they were sold separately.

I forgot to mention that my collection grew modestly this Christmas. My wife picked up Firefly and Ventriloquist for me. That brings my figure total to about 50.

 

Now I'm keeping an eye on the multipacks and Clayface. When they get down to more acceptable prices, I'll start snatching them up.

I really need to start buying one or two figures a paycheck before they start rising on the secondary market (if they haven't already). I'm ridiculously far behind. :confused:

I don't think they are going up in price at all. Maybe the early ones. But you can find them for much less than the MSR. Amazon has lots of them, and I see them a lot in the clearance sales on sites like Entertainment Earth and BBTS.

I saw Commissioner Gordon for $8 on Amazon. That price lasted less than a day. It really is like playing the stock market. They're constantly adjusting their prices.

Yeah, a week before Toy Fair.

 

If this is just another topical tie-in, I'm not gonna be happy. Trolling your consumer base ain't good business.
