Face it, Tiger, you just hit the Pin Mate jackpot!

Some toys make you feel more like a kid than others. Case in point, Bif Bang Pow!’s Pin Mates, which I’m awfully fond of. (Click here for a complete look at the Batman ’66 line.)

Pin Mates are small, wooden figures that recall the Fisher-Price play people we had as little kids. The quality is high and the price is low, at $5 a pop.

And there are a lot more to come. Bif Bang Pow! — online retailer Entertainment Earth’s merchandise brand — showed off new waves, as well as characters who will soon get cutefied:

Now, uh, is it weird for me to think of Mary Jane as sexy? I should see a professional about that, shouldn’t I…

Last year there was a Star Trek Enterprise playset. This year? The Hall of Justice, complete with interchangeable screens. Cute!

So now you’re Justice Leaguers have a place to hang out besides pegs on a wall.

Plus there will be vehicles coming out, like a Batmobile with the 1966 versions of Batman and Robin, though the design is based on the Super Friends ride…

… the Guardians of the Galaxy Milano…

… the Dark Knight Trilogy Tumbler…

… and even movie Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor with a white horse on a Themysciran beach. Neato!

If you dig the Pin Mates — and you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t — then these will make you laugh too:

Yep, wooden push puppets. Press the bottom and they flail around. Heh. (Though it means more to the company than it does to you, these are not branded as Bif Bang Pow!, rather Entertainment Earth. The company is moving into using the Entertainment Earth name for certain products.)
