Mattel had some great stuff to show, including more Masters of the Universe Classics, Halo guns from BoomCo and the latest (last?) Batman 66 offerings.
First up is Batman 66. The line continues with some rereleases of Adam West’s Batman in various box sets with a slightly darker paint scheme.
He’ll be available with a slew of accessories…
… with Robin and Batgirl…
… and, lastly, with Robin and the Batmobile.
While they couldn’t give me an exact date, these should be hitting shelves sometime around August.
They’re also putting the Hot Wheels 1:12 scale Batcycle back out. If you missed this one last time, now it comes with a sculpted Dynamic Duo to ride it.
Also from the high-end Hot Wheels line, comes an Arkham Knight Batmobile and a sweet Back to the Future DeLorean.
The Delorean comes with all the parts needed to make any of the car’s three versions.
As the 3.75″ DC Multiverse line keeps moving forward, expect more video game figures and two-packs featuring over-sized villains.
When asked why a line called “Multiverse” focuses so heavily on Batman and, specifically, the Arkham games, the reply was that they wanted to start the series off strong with something they knew would sell. Now that it’s a success, that opens the door a little for the future.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Masters of the Universe Classics remains The Line That Would Not Die.
Monster High continues to be a cool way to ease your kids into horror. This year sees a gigantic school playet (bigger, apparently, than Barbie’s Dream House) and a doll that floats in mid-air.
Finally, under their BoomCo brand (Mattel’s answer to Nerf), expect a few weapons from the HALO series.
