It’s been delayed but sit tight, citizens.
So I keep getting messages from fans eagerly awaiting the release of Diamond Select’s Batman ’66 Shakespeare bust bank.
It was first shown off more than a year ago at Toy Fair 2016 and was shown again at this year’s Toy Fair — this time in package. It was expected to be released by now, but hey, life’s not perfect.
But it’s still headed to a stately mansion near you. (Or maybe just your house or apartment.)
“Yes, it is still coming!” Zach Oat, Diamond Select’s marketing supervisor, told me. “We showed a packaged sample at Toy Fair, and are just waiting for our shipment to arrive from China. Sometimes products require a little extra TLC, and this one is unlike any we’ve made before!”
He’s not kidding. I’ve seen the prototype and it’s worthy of the hype.
We all just need to wait a little longer before we ask Alfred to dust off a spot in the study.
