Hmm... I wasn't really that interested in these figures, but now that more of the original TAS designs are coming out, I might pick some of them up! What is wrong with them? Just curious... I don't know much about figures. What would be some examples of well made figures?
The designs of the models don't really allow for the cuts in the articulation. Some of the previous toys they did look ok, the Two-Face and New Batman Adventures Batman for example, but these just strike me as really ugly. A shame, as I still think Timms designs are probably my favourite when it comes to Batman.

I was going to buy the Robin, Joker, and Manbat figures from Amazon but they've been unavailable... I guess I know why now...looks like they are delayed till March. Ask DC Collectibles: Quality Control, Sculpting Actors, New Products and More! | DC Comics

I haven't purchased any of the figures yet but I guess there's been some quality control issues.

The Catwoman figure is still available and only $20.65... maybe I will pick that up in the mean time (my interest is mainly in the B:TAS character design figures).

That article mentions that there will be more announcements at the Toy Fair... should be interesting to see what they announce (are they hinting at the B:TAS Batmobile there?)

Wouldn't mind some love for Batman Beyond. I don't think Mattel ever completed the JLU Beyond members. Maybe just GL Beyond. Plus, it would be pretty cool to see them do a Batmobile Beyond.

Wow, very cool!! I wonder how much the batmobile will cost. Edit: ohh just noticed... $99.95 ... 24" long? Man, it's gonna be huge!


Well I'm very excited about these figures! Interesting that made the BTAS Batman into a 2 Pack!

Has there been any word on the release date for the wave 2 B:TAS figures? They were supposed to come out sometime this month, I wonder if that's still happening?

It's hard finding info. I asked DC on twitter and got nothing. I did notice on Big Bad Toy Store - the release dates changed from 'March' to 'early April'. That's all I got.

Saw this on the DC Collectibles Facebook page today...




Edit - They updated the image, I guess the robins were switched.

So I guess they are reissuing every figure that's been released up to this point...

Personally looking forward to those October figures. :)

I find it interesting how "Nevermore" has been used thrice in DC animation. Teen Titans did it first. Then DC Superhero Girls 2015 did it. Then Young Justice did it. Also, they all give a major role to a Tara Strong character (Raven in the first 2 and Terra in the third).
If you type in disney1.com or zoogdisney.com, it will immediately redirect you to disneynow.com. Pretty weird how Disney still remembers their websites that were retired a long time ago.
And the winner of this matchup is Muppet Babies 2018 with 2 votes. Helpsters got none. The final matchup for round 3 is between Let's Go Luna and TOTS.

2 new trademarks filed by The Cartoon Network, Inc. recently: Hot Freaks and Norm Nerveman, Neural Detective. Probably not animation, because they only say "in the field of comedy" instead, which leads me to them being potential new [adult swim] projects.


Apparently, Suite Life and Phineas and Ferb were on Jetix USA: Saturday Kids TV schedules
