Dig these new offerings by the fine folks at Figures Toy Company! They've been faithfully reproducing the beloved Mego superhero action figures of the 70s, but also adding exciting never-before produced characters and variants to the lines, including these new "Golden Age" 1940s-era Batman figures!

custom packaging for the "removable cowl" Batman figure…
I added a classic cover image (BATMAN #89, from 1955), and
lightened up the background to highlight the scalloped cape...

image (BATMAN #53, from 1949), and lightened background...

I added the cover representing Robin's first 1940 comics
appearance, and stuck in a blurb to take up the unused space...

The cover to BATMAN #1 (1940) was added, as well as a blurb, and lightened back-
ground to highlight Robin's swell green cape!
