Well, the Action League stuff seems to be out in force. I have found everything from the first wave. I must say though, I was bit disappointed in the Transforming Batmobiel. Didnt care for the look of the Batplane conversion at all. I think its because of all the red. It should have been all black, throws the whole look off, imo. The Batmobiler mode is nice looking, but I hate that it is still only a one seater vehicle and Im not a fan of the missiles being on the top like that. I think Im going to skip this and just get the TRUs exclusive Batmbile for half the price.
Also found the HW Superfirends Batmobile. Aside for the 2 '89 behicles, this is the one I was most excited about. Again, another disappointment. The way they have it packaged is backwards. Its tilted so that youre loking at the bottom of the car! Youre not seeing the top of the vehicle. Very poor execution on that. Also, the color is off, imo. Its not a lighter blue color as seen on the package, but rather a darker, metallic hue. The design is also something that is left to be desired. It just didnt say "Superfriends" to me. An overall disapointment, so I passed on this as well.
Im finding it easier and easier to pass on alot of the Batman merchandise lately.
I've seen a lot of the new smaller Batman: Brave and Bold figures on the shelves...very good to see new product. Although I'm still waiting for the Joker figure to hit the shelves. Too bad about the "Superfriends" Batmobile...my TRU doesn't have them yet...just the black and camo edition of the Tumbler.
Found Plastic Man and Green Arrow today at Wal Mart, as well as the slew of reaccessorized Batmen. They did some major restocking and resetting in their toy department. I passed tough. Been doing alot of thinking as of late with my collecting, and the truth is, the toys just dont "do it" for me anymore. Maybe its 23 years of collecting the same thing, I dont know. But I started strong with this BATB line but the lack of "Batman" oriented characters is really leaving this line stale with me.

Just wanted to give a little update on my neck of the woods for BATB merchandise. Seems that it has almost been completely eliminated from the sets at every retailer.
Wal Mart has 3 empty pegs, been that way for 2 months, and have only 2 transforming Batmobiles.
TRUs has cut the figs down to 1 row of basics, 1 deluxe, 1 Action Heroes, and afew facings for the boxed stuff.
Target "had" a large 4 foot section that has been cut down to only a couple of pegs that have 3 Kanjar Ros and they also only have 2 transfomring Batmobiles.
I dont know what the deal is with this. Ive asked the people I know at these stores and Ive been told the same thing by all. They dont get them in. Seems that the Mattel distribution hasnt improved at all. Im right back to where I was a little over a year ago where no local retailer was carrying Batman merchandise. This is one of the major factors that has influenced my decision to stop collecting Batman.
dr green evil i wont make the same joke on these forums
brave bold distrubition is excellent here (really hard to find the battle cycle and bat copter, but i got them) and the new 2 packs are no where around here, but all basics are good to go
deluxe green arrow isnt out yet, but the rest of wave 2 is all over the singles are all over although a lot of stores have like 2 kanjar ros (honestly i see this at 3 nearbye targets, of the 7 i frequent) 2 kanjar ros spread out among 6 designated pegs for brave and bold
target soemtimes has an annoying policy to wait till every figure sold to re order retarded
dcuc is another story overflow on waves 5-7 and hard to find 8-11 (yes 11 is officially out in stores now)
majorhoy: Where is everybody?
