The Caped Crusader (a Batman stand-in with an uncanny resemblance to a 1960’s Adam West) and his trusted Batmobile were on hand at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in New York City’s Times Square to promote the launch of its new Mez-Itz line for the 1966 Batman Classic TV Series. Hagop from Constume Contumely was there and snapped these pics for AFP.
The Mez-Itz line will feature the likeness of the actors from the series such as Adam West and Burt Ward, famed for their iconic portrayals as the dynamic duo, Batman and Robin. Mezco’s Mez-Itz line will also debut Batman Classic TV Series toys, including the Batmobile.
Mezco will be producing Mez-Itz not only of Batman and Robin, but also of the Rogues Gallery as well: The Penguin, The Joker, Catwoman and The Riddler. Every Super-Villain needs henchman, so naturally Mezco will also produce The Riddler’s Thug, inspired by the one seen on the original show.
Mezco’s first wave of Batman Classic TV Series products will hit stores in July 2013. A sneak preview will be available at San Diego Comic Con at Mezco’s booth 3445.
