It’s Ladies Night in Gotham City, where the drinks are free and so are the bullets. When some of Batman’s most notorious femme fatales go out on the town looking for little fun and villainy, it can only spell trouble for the Dark Knight Detective. And in order to bring these baneful beauties to bear, the Caped Crusader will need a little help from his friends.
Don’t miss this exciting adventure that brings a whole new meaning to term “battle of the sexes!”
If you thought DC Collectibles had the lock on action figures for DC’s live action TV shows, Diamond Select has got news for you. They’re producing action figures for Gotham, the hit TV show that Fox renewed for a second season back in January. The first wave, which we’ll see in person at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, will include Jim Gordon, Oswald Cobblepot, and Selina Kyle.
Similar to how DST handled the Sin City Select action figures, the Gotham figures will be in 7-inch scale and come with play sets, like the pier base that comes with Cobblepot. No word yet if they’ll use the “Select” style packaging in use for Marvel, Star Trek, and Sin City or if the line will be known as Gotham Select. But we do know to expect the figures this fall, for $24.99 a pop.
To whet our appetites for their new Batman: The Animated Series figures, DC Collectibles has posted a feature that provides background on the animated shows which are the source material for the designs, and details the features of the figures shown thus far – Batman from 1997’s New Batman Adventures and Catwoman from 1992’s The Animated Series. I don’t think I’ve seen this in print anywhere, but I believe that Gentle Giant is the design studio behind these figures.
If you hadn’t heard, the first wave will have two more figures – Mr. Freeze and Two-Face, both based on the 1997 designs. But it’ll be a long wait for the four figures. They’re due to hit shelves in November.
Holy clearance, Batman! The Batman Classic TV Series action figures from Mattel are on sale at Amazon.com, except for the Penguin, who remains at $15.99. The singles are $8.99 or 9.99 each, besides the Joker, who is at $4.99 – that’s so low, he doesn’t qualify for Amazon Prime shipping on his own. If you’ve been resisting, now might be a good time to pick these up.
