The great thing about the Batman 1966 licensing boom that we've been in for the past year or so has been the variety of collectibles commemorating the fan-favorite series. For a long time, we just didn't have much to work with when it came to the Adam West/Burt Ward era, but now we've got action figures, banks, miniature cars, statues, comics and all kinds of other random stuff.
While we've seen Funko's Batman 1966 Pop figures and Dorbz on shelves already, the creatives at Vinyl Sugar will introduce Vinyl Idolz based on the Bat-family this fall. The Batman '66 wave was teased earlier in the year, but didn't have any prototypes or release date mentioned at the time.

The comic book movie craze may have exploded in recent years, but there have been movies and TV shows based on our favorite comics for decades. For all the action we see on screen, however, we hardly ever get to see behind the curtain at how it all comes together.
Fortunately, we've managed to uncover dozens of behind the scenes images from your favorite comic-inspired movies. From The Dark Knight to Dredd, and Conan to Kick-Ass, we now have a little bit of an idea of what life was like on set during the creation of these beloved adaptations.
21 years after Adam West first appeared on The Simpsons, the star of the 1966 Batman TV series is returning to the Matt Groening universe in August in a new episode of Futurama. Former Robin Burt Ward (who appeared with West in a 2002 Simpsons episode) will also guest star in the episode, "Leela and the Genestalk."
After years of being unable to capitalize on the classic Batman TV show, it looks like Warner Bros. and DC are wasting absolutely no time on making up for that. Since merchandising rights were sorted out, they've announced a new line of action figures, a digital comic series, and now, we're getting full-on Batman '66 costumes for Halloween.
Following their reveal at last week's Warner Bros. Consumer Products/Junk Food Clothing launch event last week at Meltdown Comics (where DC's new Batman '66 comic was announced), Mattel has released official images of two upcoming Batman Classic TV Series 6" action figures including a Cesar Romero Joker and "Batusi" Batman. The Joker figure is expected as part of the second wave of Batman Classics following the first wave's rollout in July, while the "Batusi" Bats is slated to be a San Diego Comic-con 2013 exclusive
Fans have known about the basic figures set to roll out during the first wave of Mattel's Batman Classics 1966 line since its debut during Toy Fair 2013, but there's a newly-preorderable option available to collectors set on snagging an Adam West Batman and Burt Ward Robin in one fell swoop. Joining the first wave of Batman, Riddler and P
If mechs, aliens and superheroes are your cup of tea, NECA's 2013 Toy Fair lineup is like... well, it's like a huge vat of tea that somebody could fall in while being chased by police. NECA's got quite a few detailed Pacific Rim and Aliens figures in the piplein
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 Catwom
