Previews: DC Direct’s Rainbow Batmen and Lego Scooby Doo
Its an exciting time to be a nerd with all these awesome toys appearing left and right. For this post, we’ll be showing two upcoming toys and figures that geeks of all shapes and sizes should have in their display cabinets – DC Collectibles’ Multi-colored Batman and the LEGO Scooby Doo
This set was based on the cover to DC Comics’ Detective Comics # 241 which featured Batman in his pink costume and looking at the other mannequins with different color inside the Batcave. The sculpts are based on the artwork done by Batman artist Sheldon Moldoff and could probably be priced at $50 to $80; sadly this has been shelved but it never did but DC Collectibles is getting feels for this product.
There’s also this awesome and just-announced Scooby Doo LEGO playset which is showing nerds that LEGO is a juggernaut.
The new LEGO deal not only give fans their Scooby fix but will also give the kids a 22 minute animated special to help boost the popularity of the Scooby gang especially for the younger generation.
“Fans always wonder which properties may come to life in Lego form, and this year we are thrilled to bring all of the mystery, humor and hijinks of the Scooby-Doo universe to life in Lego toys and animated content,” said Jill Wilfert, VP, licensing and entertainment at The Lego Group. “We constantly review properties to find those with global reach, great characters and stories and inherent building and role play opportunities, and we think that Scooby-Doo delivers on all of these while also driving strong appeal among collectors and today’s parents who have strong nostalgia for the Lego brand from their own childhood.”
