A fantastic piece of news today with word that McFarlane Toys will be continuing the DC Direct / Collectibles Batman Animated series. These were 6 inch scale figures of the various Animated shows done up in their unique design style. It had a long run (see some galleries here) and there were several in mid-production when DC Direct shut down abruptly in 2020. McFarlane Toys have been getting those in-production items out to market, including some Essentials 6.75 inch scale figures, statues and now these.
The figures revealed were from Batman The Adventures Continue (BTAC) which extended that universe in comic form featuring new characters. They include Batman in a cell shaded deco, Catwoman also in cell shaded deco, and The Batman Who Laughs. Batman and Catwoman were repaints of previous toys similar to the later releases of Robin and Joker.
There were more in production not revealed today – Thomas Wayne Batman, Tim Drake Robin, Talon, BTAC Batgirl, Vampire Batman – hopefully we get those too. Whether the line will continue beyond what was in production already is unknown right now.
All three are available for pre-order now, check our sponsors below to grab your copies. Read on for full details.
