DC Entertainment just announced new product lines for long-time fans: figures based of the hit Nineties animated shows: Batman The Animated Series and Batman: The New Adventures. The figures will be 6″ in scale and retail at comic book stores for at least $25.
Fans were shown preview images of the Catwoman and later New Adventures Batman and everyone went wild…
…well, mostly everyone.
This is not the first time we’ve seen figures based on these properties: in the Ninties, KENNER made 3″ figures as well. They were pretty amazing- almost all of the figures from the Batman Animated Series had a figure, and I think they ran for under 10 bucks. Several years later, when the New Adventures featured all-new character designs, KENNER did a good deal of toys based on that show as well, but the demand had died off (or the moms were scared off, as the re-designs were singularly …darker in tone). Many classic characters were not made in the sleek design, including one of my favorites: Poison Ivy
Poison Ivy started out as a bottanist who developed plant-based weapons to strike out against the killers of plant life: Mankind. Then, in the re-designed series, Poison Ivy … did… something to herself.
