Two things we’ve waited a lifetime for…
Hey, folks: McFarlane Toys has put up for pre-order at Target its upcoming 6-inch-scale 1966 Batboat and Wayne Manor Library playset.
These are two toys that every devoted Batfan has been waiting, oh, 57 years for.

WAYNE MANOR LIBRARY
A few thoughts:
— I’ve wanted a Wayne Manor study action-figure playset since the earliest days of my Mego collecting 50 years ago. Same with a Batboat. This is the best we’re ever likely to see and I am totally, enthusiastically down for both. McFarlane’s 6-inch line has been a smashing success.
— Both are Target exclusives and each lists for $34.99. They are due April 16, but that is subject to change. (These release dates can be a shifty bunch.) You can pre-order here for Wayne Manor and here for the Batboat.
— Also available for pre-order are the Radioactive Batman, King Tut and Two-Face figures, though all three have been available already on the secondary market.
— That’s three playsets (including the Batcave and the United Underworld) and three vehicles (including the Batmobile and Batcycle). I’m not sure what other playsets would be worth doing — but here’s hoping a Batcopter is on the way!
