Wonder if we’ll get Bruce and Dick in sweaters with the library playset? Seems iconic enough

Library playset? Is that a thing that has been rumored/announced?

Got my Julie Catwoman from Target pre-order today - nicely done figure, I may need to find something for Eartha Catwoman to lounge on to hide the heights being the same.

Back to the Batmobiles - the Funko Batmobile is also a bit smaller, proportionally, than the Mezco, despite being essentially the same scale. Interestingly, it seems a bit more in proportion to the McF in terms of being shorter on the back trunk than the Mezco and Mattel versions - also the back canopies on the Funko and McF are rounded while the back canopies on Mezco and Mattel come to points, and I feel the fins on Mattel and Mezco are a bit higher, more pointed. So maybe there are two sets licensor schematics for the Batmobile, and if so it looks to me like McF and Funko got one type that scaled a bit smaller, was more squat, with rounded back canopies and Mattel and Mezco got one type that scaled a bit bigger, was more elongated, and had pointed back canopies.

I'd love to see that, with some sort of working bookcase hidden door/batpoles.

Radioactive makes me think of the pink cowel episode with Mad Hatter, but that Two Face throws me unless they are using the direct to video version as played by Shatner?

There was also a Batman 66 comic. Maybe Two-Face was in the comic as well, hence "COMIC" in the figure title. Either way, I imagine it's just a generic 60s Two-Face to fit the line.

Maybe from this book:

Pulling from the comic is an odd choice (granted Two-Face is a fun look) and it makes me wonder if the body will be re-used somehow - assuming he is in a suit maybe that will be used for Alfred or Riddler in his suit at a later date?

Clock King, Mad Hatter, Shame - all made before under the license by other companies, so assume they could be done for this one. Although who knows, given the issues with Batgirl, maybe it isn't cut and dry.

Well lo and mighty Target FINALLY came through!!!
The postal lady handed my wife the package I've been praying for. I finally have my Julie Newmar figure!!!
Gotta say I was starting to worry about whether it was ever going to get here, and then she was supposed to be delivered on Sunday. Then they said Monday. No Julie. Finally today she arrived.
Have to say she's "purr-fect"....
( sorry I had too )

So I knew about the Batman '66 comic, but haven't read it. The rumor/leak of Two-Face from the comic made me curious what other rogues appeared in the comic and not the show, and that list includes Poison Ivy, Ras, Bane, Hugo Strange, etc. I hope they don't go the route of comic villains in '66 style - would rather get more of the TV show created bad guys.

But while reading up on the comic, found out that Two-Face was almost on the show. DC produced a one-shot comic in 2014 (The Lost Episode) based on an unmade script for the TV show written by Harlan Ellison, which was scrapped before being shot due to Two-Face being too scary for little kids. (Apparently that was also the reason False Face only appeared once - too scary). So Two-Face could have been on the show if the episode had been produced. I guess some of that story was referenced in the animated version with Shatner as Two-Face, but that is not a straight adaptation. Anyway, could be a unique situation made possible given McF's general DC license.

According to DC, the animated films are now canon ( within the context of the show) so that means Shat IS Two-Face.
