Toy Fair 2013: 60’s Batman series action figure line from Mattel

Over the past few days leading up to New York Toy Fair (NYTF) 2013, Mattel has teased us with some reveals for a 6 inch action figure line based on the 60’s Batman series featuring Adam West as Batman. The figures are not just based on the series, but actually use the likenesses of the actors, which makes for a compelling sell. Also, there’s a Batmobile. Aww yeeeeaah.

The line will reportedly be released in July 2013 with figures retailing for US$14.99 and the Batmobile for the rather small sum of US$49.99. Let’s just hope the assumption that the Batmobile is in scale with the figures holds. I wouldn’t take anything for granted.

Join us after the jump for a look at each of the figures! We will update this post as more figures are revealed. We still expect to see Burt Ward’s Robin, Julie Newmar’s Catwoman and Cesar Romero’s Joker.

Batman and the Batmobile came from USAToday
Riddler and Penguin came from Entertainment Earth

MOTU Classics Castle Grayskull is officially a go, minimum order quantity met

MattyCollector has announced that Castle Grayskull has met the minimum order number needed to go ahead with sculpting a real model to eventually go into production next year. With little more than some basic design sheet images and a foam mock-up, fans put their money where their mouths were by pre-ordering the colossal playset at the steep cost of US$250. Had the minimum quantity not been met, the project would not have gone forward much like the Young Justice figures planned for next year that could not muster the pre-order minimum. Had Castle Grayskull not gone forward, it likely would have stifled the waning enthusiasm for the line further.

Now that sculpting can begin, Mattel is hoping to have something preliminary to show off at NYTF in February of next year. Pre-orders have opened back up for Grayskull and will remain open until January 4, 2013 at 9AM PT. Fans can now look forward to voting in the Spring for what characters will appear on the box art, which will be done by the same artist who painted the box art on the original Castle Grayskull, Rudy Obrero.

If you have not yet pre-ordered Castle Grayskull, you can do so here.

MOTUC He-Man and BattleCat on sale today for $30 together

He-Man turns 30 years old this year. To celebrate, MattyCollector is having a one-day sale today, October 12, 2012. For US$30 you can pick up the He-Man & BattleCat Party Pak. That is both figures for just 30 dollars. Keep in mind that BattleCat alone sells for $33 by himself. This great deal is definitely the time to pick these two figures up either for yourself or to stow away as a gift for the holidays.

As a side note, this is pretty telling that Mattel went back into production for both He-Man and BattleCat with a significant production run to be willing to sell them for this low of a price.

SDCC 2012: Preview Night reveals MOTU Classics Granamyr, third Accessories Pack and more

News is already starting to trickle in from SDCC 2012. As booths start to be set up by various companies, people are snapping photos and posting them online. We’ve already gotten our very first look at Masters of the Universe Classics Granamyr, the largest figure to be released in 2012. We heard about the helmeted dragon first at last year’s convention, where the fan poll determined his coloration; Red as in the Filmation cartoon or Green as in the mini-comics. Clearly the Red vote has won out. He looks very well articulated, but it is not clear if the figure is rotocasted or not. He is going to be available in December and will be priced at approximately US$80.

[UPDATED – added video from Mattel with some of the Accessories from the Great Unrest Weapons Pack]
