Toy Fair 2013: Mattel

Mattel had some new and familiar items on display. And a lot of it was Batman.

Mattel probably had the biggest area at Toy Fair. I can't say I'm really sure what they did with all the space as large sections were closed off. They did have quite a bit on display in terms of Batman and DC characters. They also had some of the Club Infinite Earths figures out (most were seen at NYCC).

In another area there were some Man of Steel figures on display. As was the case with some others, we were not allowed to take pictures of them.

60s Batman

Holy retro-toy, Batman! It shouldn't be a surprise to see this but I was surprised that figures based on the old TV show were made. I guess there's only so many different types of Batman figures that can be made so it was inevitable this would happen. Pretty cool.

== TEASER ==

That's not all the 60s Batman stuff. Check this out:

More Batman

Looks like we'll be seeing more than just Batman in this line. There's a Terry McGinnis, Damian Wayne, Wonder Woman and Darkseid.

DC Signature Collection

Check out the MattyCollector figures coming soon.

Watchmen

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

There were some different lines shown as well as the collector's Castle Grayskull.

Man of Steel

Again, pictures were not allowed. But I was able to take a pic of a Superman suit that Henry Cavill actually wore.

I like the Watchmen figures. Been wanting a Damian for a while. Looks like I'll have to keep waiting. He's so top heavy he looks like a junior member of the Jersey Shore cast.

Granamyr's so cool and giant! MOTUC action figures were so cool 20 years ago and they still are... the best. LOL

@JairamGanpat Damien's chest is big, for him. If you look at the group shot, you can clearly see Terry is taller. With Damien being shorter, I'm betting they didn't want to make a completely new mold for the body, thus it looks bigger because he is shorter. All these new toy solicits are killing it! Some really great stuff.

I hope they make a Caesar Romero Joker complete with mustache!

My sister went nuts over the Barbie Batman and Catwoman.

Is that He-Man in the middle? He has black hair, which is wrong. Also...

WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT!!!!

He looks like a child bodybuilder. And we all know how off putting those are.

You know what's cooler than 60's Batman action figures? The entire series on Blu-ray or DVD. Please for the love of god put it out already.

I will be buying all the 60's Batman. So yes I am back on the Mattel crack.

Damian looks both too tall and too buff

OMG, I am nostalgiaing SO HARD!!! I had this Castle Grayskull playset as a kid! My parents bought it and the Thundercats' Cats Lair for my brothers and I to share, one holiday season.

I would love the 1960"s Adam West Batman!

Freakin Awesome!!

The Man of Steel suit is awesome too!

Those 60's Batman figures are unexpected and amazing. The Damian Wayne on the other hand, wow was that poorly thought out. I don't think many 20 year-olds are capable of that level of muscle, much less a ten year-old. Had the Damian figure turned out to be quality, it probably would have been one of the few in the 6" line I picked up, but definitely not now.

Damian, the buffest 10 year old IN ALL THE LAND!!!

Posted by randomcharachter

60's Batman is a good idea but the figuares aren't that much good

Posted by snootchie_bootchies

A Damian Wayne figure will never be in my collection.

That Man of Steel suit is AWESOME.
