In the April edition of Previews, there contains solicitations for the upcoming Batman 1966 TV Series action figures by Mattel. Looks they’ll be hitting specialty stores in late June which could mean that big box retail stores like Wal – Mart, Target, and TRU will get them on the shelves a lot sooner.

One of the most beloved television series of all time, the 1966 Batman series starring Adam West and Burt Ward, comes to life with the first series in Mattel’s new DC Classic TV Action Figures!

Item Code: APR131758 In Shops: 6/26/2013 SRP: $149.94
The catalog also has the solicitation for the Batman and Robin 2 pack as well. Not much to go on but I do know for a fact that this will be a series like what Mattel did with the DC Superheroes and DC Universe Classics lines.
Some of the most memorable moments of the classic 1966 Batman television series are recreated with Mattel’s new DC Classic TV Moment Action Figure 2-Packs! These packs feature Batman, his friends, and his villains that recreates the style and costumes of the beloved series. Window box packaging.
