TOY FAIR 2018: A Bat-threefer…

On Saturday, we brought you news that Diamond Select is going back to the Batcave — or, I suppose Wayne Manor — with three new resin minibusts due later this year: Adam West’s Bruce Wayne, Burt Ward’s Dick Grayson and Alan Napier’s Alfred.

Now, we can give you your FIRST LOOK at the busts — straight from the Toy Fair floor in New York City:

As you see, Diamond got particularly inventive with Bruce and Dick, giving them minibusts of their own — a Batphone for the former and a Shakespeare bust for the latter. Alfred, meanwhile, has his trusty feather-duster.

The busts are still pending licensor approval but once that’s secured Diamond plans on getting solicitations going, likely one at a time. These usually retail for about $60.


While I’m tickled to see these three, I’m sure a lot of folks will wonder whether we’ll get any more, since there are still likenesses available in the license: Diamond hasn’t done Cliff Robertson’s Shame or Stafford Repp’s Chief O’Hara, though neither are essential. And now that we’re getting Bruce and Dick, it’d be a blast to get Barbara Gordon too. (There are also a bunch of variant possibilities, of course.)

Bottom line, it all comes down to sales and expectations, so we’ll have to wait and see.

Meanwhile (as Desmond Doomsday might say), a Batgirl bank bust is still coming, though it was not on display. (There’s no other news on the bank front or the statue front.)

Anyway, these minibusts were a cool surprise. Nice to see there’s some gas left in the merchandising Batmobile.

  1. I was hoping they would do more 12″ statues of other villains.

    • Yeah, I think it was really smart to give Bruce and Dick accessories like that too. It really adds a lot.

  2. Do they have the rights to Lee Meriwether? I would love a Miss Kitka bust to go with the other two Catwoman busts.

    I have all of the busts but I’m not sure that I have any interest in these. Maybe Alfred.

    • No, Lee Meriwether’s not in the license, I’m afraid. The license doesn’t cover the movie, sadly.
