Incoming: Hot Toys Batman (1966): 1/6 Adam West as Bruce Wayne/Batman Collectible Figure

"Na na na na…Batman!”

The catchy opening song, campy style costumes, and lighthearted comical scenes have made the Batman 1960s television series a classic among Batman fans. Adam West has become synonymous with the crime fighting hero and the show’s success has even led to a movie being made featuring most of the original TV cast.

The collectible figure is newly developed and highly detailed, which is specially crafted based on the image of Adam West as the iconic character Batman, featuring a screen-accurate masked head sculpt, specially made costume with Batman logo, weapons and accessories.

Its funny because it's not that they're not great, I'm just not into the retro look, the same goes for Captain America's The Spangled Man. This will be one that has to grow on me to be honest, but seriously Hot Toys NAILED the portraits. The "stock" bodies underneath however are a let down. They're obviously not ones redesigned exclusively for the pair.

As someone who was there when this series aired, I love it. I will watch for this one and likely shell out the cash for what will be another overpriced figure. But, I just won't be able to stop myself. "Holy magic trick, Batman!"
