Mattel Unveils 1966 ‘Batman’ TV Series Ken And Barbie Catwoman
As an action figure guy, I’ve been pretty stoked on Mattel’s upcoming line of 6″ Batman action figures based on the 1966 live action TV series starring Adam West. If you’re a Barbie collector, however, you may want to make sure you’re sitting down to look at Mattel’s newly revealed Lee Meriwether/Julie Newmar/Eartha Kitt-style Catwoman Barbie and West-flavored Batman Ken. Each of the cosplaying dolls can now be preordered through the official Barbie Collector site for $34.95 a pop. They’re not expected to ship until June, so if you’re desperate for an in-scale Barbie Batmobile for these two to cruise around in (or, say, a Skipper doll dressed as Robin), now’s a good time to start letting Mattel know.
