Some of the figures at SDCC 2014! (Look out for the background Creeper and Riddler!!)

When the initial figures were announced some months ago, I expressed my disappointment over the lack of Riddler and Penguin being in the line-up. And my disappointment for the preponderance of the designs being from The New Batman Adventures. (In nearly ALL cases, I found the TNBA designs to be soulless and unappealing and still do. The original Animated Series designs work better for every character and I will fight anyone who says otherwise!) While I’m still upset that Harvey is in the TNBA mold, I can say now that I am absolutely THRILLED (read: shrieking in happiness and giddy anticipation) that Riddler and Penguin are getting figures and that, from the looks of things, they are going to be of their original Animated Series designs! (Yay!) The Killer Croc and Creeper figures say that they are due in March 2015. I’m going to assume that The Riddler and Penguin figures will be coming around the same time? I better start saving now. The others are all due in December. Man, I really hope Scarecrow shows up in his SECOND design from the Animated Series, NOT the ‘hanged corpse’ design from TNBA. I think that latter design is SUCH overkill and makes him too damn bulky and powerful-looking. So NOT Jonathan Crane, in other words. That second design from Dreams in Darkness and Fear of Victory is perfect. Truly. Anyway, I’ve ranted enough: I’m over the moon about Eddie and Oswald. Good job, DC!

Character-themed VHS releases. I’m seriously considering getting these, just for that awesome artwork!

I had The Riddler tape when I was a kid and it had a profound impact on me. I watched it so many times the tape wore out. I had the Robin tape as well. I can’t recall whether or not I had any of the others, but, they do look familiar. I’m sure I probably had more than just those two… These were great. I almost want to track down a copy of The Riddler tape just to have it again.
(On a semi-related note, does anybody remember when Pizza Hut gave out VHS tapes of X-Men: the Animated Series in the ’90s? My mom worked as a manager at Pizza Hut at the time and so was able to get me ALL of those tapes. And, again, I practically wore them out from watching them so much.)

Behold: the first look at Two-Face ‘66. If he seems rather conventional in appearance, that’s probably because Ellison’s story was essentially an extremely faithful retelling of the original Harvey Kent story by Bill Finger.
As such, chances are that this is going to be a remake of the original Golden Age trilogy with some Adam West flair and art by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez and a variant cover of Two-Face by Alex Ross.
So, yeah: *squeals forever*

You have no idea how happy this news makes me. I can’t wait for November!
