Default Mattel 2012 Batman Action Figures

Over the Holiday weekend, I saw these new Batman figures:

http://tomztoyz.blogspot.com/2012/03...-toy-line.html



They look okay, I guess, but it won't be something added to the ol' collection. I wonder if there are any plans for a new animated series. I remember the last "The Batman" series kind of ruined Justice League Unlimited because of the dreaded character embargo. If there is a new series, hopefully that won't be the case with Young Justice.

By the way, Target has all their "Legacy" Batman figures clearanced.

I went to a few of Targets in my area and none had shit I wanted. That typically happens. But I also typically happens is they'll move the clearance items to another section or isle in the store. Knowing this, I asked someone that worked in the store, and this Jamacian creep of a man tells me that if I don't see it in the toy section it's probably not available and that I should have search the shit myself if I want so bad. WTF? Look, I was just asking a question and there's no need for the snotty attitude. Just because that guy hates his job, there's no reason to take that shit out on me. That guy should take a refresher course on costumer service. Fuck, they shouldn't let assholes like on the floor and interact with customers. I have deal with all after dealing with the old wrinkly farts and Vietnamese people that know how park a damn car in the parking lot and spending money on gas.

It's no wonder I prefer to do online shopping with Amazon. I don't have to deal with dicks there.

You don't know the have of it. Sometimes they have old prunes of people working the register and it takes like forever to ring up four items. They shouldn't be these slow ass old bags in the express register if they can't live up to the title.

Are these going to be the 5 inch figures, or those fucking crappy little 3 inch ones again? Also, the figure looks badly made, but I love the design. I think the bat symbol this guy sports could actully work for batmans new symbol, someone should contact DC about this. I do like the packaging thought, looks a bit 90s and that's what I like! Hell, the entire figure and everything looks like it came from the 90s!

Yeah atleast these figures are worth their price, unlike the ridiculously overpriced 3 inch figures.

and I find 3" figs are badly painted. I prefer 5"-6". Ocasionly 7". Oh well, everything's getting smaller nowadays, for example a bag of walkers crisps (that's lays to you Americans ) used to nearly go up to the top of a bag, now only half the bag's filled up. Same with a bag of star mix, only less than three quaters is full.

Deadpool, these are 5 inch figs. All things considered, I think they look pretty neat for kids. Much better than thee BS multi-colored DK figs. If I had boys, I would get these for them.
