Dig This INSIDE LOOK at the McFarlane Toys 1966 BATCAVE

Holy cavernous creations!

Throw a 1966 Batcave playset — or any retro Batcave playset — at me, and I am down, down, down for it.

Well, you’ve probably heard by now that McFarlane Toys has a 6-inch-scale Batman Classic TV Series Batcave playset coming in August, along with Batman, Robin and Joker action figures, as well as a Batmobile.

The Batcave comes with an assortment of crime-fighting equipment, including the Batcomputer; the Batpoles; and the atomic pile, complete with ladder. Once fully assembled, it runs 2 feet wide.

The real deal

According to a recent Facebook video hosted by Todd McFarlane, they’ll be coming to Target stores. Final, official retail prices have not been announced yet, though they’re expected soon — and are expected to be on the inexpensive side. (The Batcave, figures and Batmobile are each sold separately.)

In the meantime, you can take a virtual tour of the Batcave, thanks to these images posted to the McFarlane site.

  1. I’m definitely in for the Batcave. I’m not sure there’s enough difference between the earlier Mattel 6″ figures and these for me to warrant a purchase, but we’ll see. Not feeling the Burt Ward Robin face sculpt, but Batman and Joker look pretty good. I think the Mattel Batmobile seems to be more in actual scale with 6″ figures than this one as well. But either way, it’s a good thing to have these figures available, and at an apparently affordable price!

  2. It’s pretty rare to find a licensed item that manages to really get Burt Ward’s likeness correct, I’ve noticed.

    • Hot Toys is about the only one who has really nailed it. But both him and Adam’s skin colors are really too dark. That’s a minor nitpick, because otherwise they are gorgeous…but at that price point…they should be!

  3. Looks very cheap to me. Simplistic shapes with stickers. No thanks.

  4. The scale is way off. The atomic pile should be taller. Once you place the Batmobile, that is also out of scale, in the middle of it it REALLY looks out of scale.
