It’s almost here…

Citizens, your patience is paying off.

The much sought-after Batman ’66 Shakespeare vinyl bust bank from Diamond Select Toys is due Wednesday 7/26, the company folks tell us.

That’s right, less than two weeks away.

We first showed you this life-size replica, sculpted by Paul Harding, almost a year and a half ago when it debuted at Toy Fair 2016:

It’s 20 inches tall and comes complete with a hinged neck, faux dial and button, and an unobtrusive coin slot should you want to use it to store your millions. (Sliding bookcase not included.)

In package at Toy Fair 2017

Shakespeare ’66 lists for $85 but a quick sweep around the web shows you can get it for less. I always recommend shopping around. You should also check with your local comics shop because it’s always best to support them, I say.

No matter what, judging by the response I get every time I write about this Bat-beaut, July 26 will be a big day of celebration across Gotham.
