    No problem :cwink:

    And I am extremely excited for the classic 66 MM's that are coming out. I pre ordered all of mine via Amazon and broke up the orders by the dates of release to prevent any delays in shipping.

    I would also love to see just a few figures from each old film. Maybe even a burton batmobile.

    Hopefully Mattel will gauge how well the sales will be for the 66 MM batmobile and release the tumbler down the road.

    believe me,the wait for the '66 stuff is KILLING me!

    Amazon says August 1st release for the 2-pack,so hopefully I'll have that soon. the rest of wave 1 seems a bit murkier. they have Riddler and Penguin for August 15th,yet Batman from the same wave august 30th. then they have wave 2 Surf batman and joker August 30th,but Catwoman from the same wave as October!!??

    Well while searching the mattycollector.com forums someone posted on 7/22/13 that this 66 batmobile on Target.com is actually a remote control car. This poster stated that they saw it at a store however I have seen no such product.

    After reading the description it doesn't state remote control car it states Power Source: Manual and no battery required.

    Well luckily this product can be returned to the store with no problem as it states on the website.

    Here's hoping its the actual MM batmobile but if not, back to the store it goes.

    Rest assured dude, the Target 66 classic Batmobile is indeed the Movie Masters vehicle!!!

    Just received mine today! I am so happy I ordered this without any hesitation especially at $49.99.



    I also received the Medicom FX Figure from Entertainmentearth.com today as well.

    A good day indeed.

    [​IMG]

    I was able to put all my Mafex Bat weapons & extra fists/hands in this old Batman Begins suit case. I used some old stir foam and cut to shape the inside of the case.
    Everything fit perfect

    I hope they make a Bane down the line too.

    Hey all, glad this board is still going strong, even though the subject has changed slightly.... :)

    Packing my TDKR 6" MM. Anyone have any tips for packing? Bubble wrap, tissue paper, cardboard boxes, plastic tote bins? Those pesky corners can get bent so easily.

    Also, FYI. The button batteries in my SDCC 6" Bruce Wayne died, so the piano now longer plays. I'm sure once I replace it'll be fine, but remembered sometimes batteries can explode and/or leak.
    So for those of you who don't "play" with your piano, it prob. wouldn't hurt at least to check the bottom of the box for leaky acid.
    Same with the Batsignal :batty:

    This post is 2+ months old but do you still have the Batpod from Target?

    If not and you are relisting, you should include Joker Dark Knight 6" in your Title.

    Wonder if anyone can help me here. I purchased the 1966 Penguin from Amazon.
    It was packaged in a 1966 Batman card back. The front bubble had the penguin name card and stated it was to have a Penguin trading card included.
    Because it was a Batman card back it came with a Batman & Robin trading card.
    As i open my figs to display them I know have an incomplete Penguin.
    I have emailed Matty Collector but they have sent a response which makes no sense. I don't see the point of emailing Amazon as it isn't actually their mistake as it was Mattel who packaged it wrong.
    As i am in Australia there is no easy way to contact Mattel in the states, even via email. Does anyone have a customer service email for them?

    Moved from NJ to SW PA and went to my local TRU. If anyone needs the 6" BB Lt. Jim Gordon/Bruce Wayne 2-pack, they have it on clearance for $16. I got it so I can keep my 6" TDKR Wal-mart Jim Gordon sealed.
    They also have the little Mez-its of Bats and Cats from TDKR (like $6) and the 1:50 scale Bat and Batpod from Hot Wheels (like $8 each). :batty:

    I've been holding off on the Batman and Robin 2-pack in the hopes that news of a single-carded Robin without the poseable cape would be announced. I get the feeling that the line may be over with Catwoman and we won't see Robin, but I hope I'm wrong. There are still several characters they could do, but they've tackled all the main ones in the first couple waves.

    Try emailing here: [email protected]

    There should be a mattel 800 number somewhere on the card you can call. I emailed regarding a defect and they provided a prepaid shipping slip for me to mail the figure back. And in return they gave me a voucher thats good for any mattel made products at select retailers. I know its a hassle but its better than nothing.

    Action figure fury on twitter. They said its not yet a published story and no official statement but they are usually a very good source for all figure and collectible news. Said he is hearing from sources they aren't selling as well as Mattel had hoped and the quality of many figures isn't up to par. I will keep an eye out for official news though.

    I thought it has been official for some time. It was reported around SDCC 13 and where I buy them wholesale have said for some time this is it. They get the last and best case in October. It has 1 of each figure. I still have not seen anything from these on a shelf.

    They weren't really easy to obtain in the first place. There wasn't really a American distributor like with most figures. They had to be ordered straight from China. So only big names probably could even afford to order them making them not readily as available as most figures. Probably didn't help the chances of more figures. Sucks, really wanted a Bookworm and many others.

    yeah,this was decided before the line even began to come out. on a mattycollector.com Q & A in August,they said we've already seen everything they have planned for the line. so it was never gonna be more than 6 carded figures, a 2-pack, a SDCC exclusive,and the Batmobile.
