Mego Style Batman, Robin, Joker And Riddler Dolls Coming In July
With Mattel’s Retro-Action line of 8″ World’s Greatest Heroes figures put to bed last year, it seems Figures Toy Company has stepped in to fill the void with actual replicas of Mego’s famous ’70s dolls beginning with Batman, Robin, The Joker and The Riddler. Expected in comic and specialty stores this July, each figure will sport Mego’s signature sculpts, cloth costumes and 16 points of articulation (although hardcore fans will note that Batman and Robin’s masks aren’t removable like the earliest World’s Greatest Superheroes! line versions). Twisted Mego/ToyFare Theatre should be especially excited by the thought of customizing the dynamic duo into a modern Bat-Pumpkin and Squash. Pricing info hasn’t been released just yet, but judging from FTC’s previous releases, fans can probably expect to pay around $15-25 per figure this summer. You can get a closer look at the upcoming 8″ Batman wave after the jump.
