Gamestop announced five 6 inch two-packs commemorating Batman’s team-up with our favorite mutated turtles! This confirms suspicions that DC Collectibles’ teaser instagram post was foreshadowing a continuation of the SDCC/ Entertainment Earth Michelangelo as Batman shared exclusive.
Full details and gallery below!
Just last week we reported suspicions surrounding DC Collectibles’ Instagram post of a Gotham City manhole with an ominous green glow emanating out.
Many thought this picture indicated a continuation of the Batman vs. TMNT figure concept which started with the Michelangelo as Batman shared SDCC exclusive still available for pre-order through Entertainment Earth and Big Bad Toy Store.
IDW and DC Collectibles have had a couple of successful crossover comics in recent years and a cartoon. This might be the beginning of an expanded crossover merchandise line.
Now Gamestop has confirmed those suspicions posting five 6 inch two-packs each featuring a character from Batman and a character TMNT. The first wave (if there is to be a second) includes:
- Batman and Leonardo;
- Robin and Raphael;
- Batgirl and Donatello;
- Alfred and Michelangelo; and
- Ra’s Al Ghul and Shredder
Gamestop doesn’t provide any essential info on the figures, like scale. But if they are to scale with Michelangelo as Batman, we’re probably looking at 6 inch/ 1:12 scale.
Each set is going for $49.99 each or $249.99 for a bundle of all five. Release dates start in September 2019 with Batman and Leonardo and run through December 2019 with the release of Ra’s Al Ghul and Shredder. Not sure if ordering the bundle postpones delivery of all your figures until December. The listing states that items may “ship in separate packages”, so it’s likely they ship as each pack is released.
It looks like the posing options are endless if you get the full set. The whole wave will deliver tons of accessories from batarangs, to pizza slices, to phones and manholes, and skateboards. Cowabunga!
When a new menace in Gotham City begins stealing experimental technology, Batman is put on high alert. But a team of warriors lurking beneath the streets is also on the case: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Led by Leonardo, these brothers – brainy Donatello, fearless Raphael and wisecracking Michelangelo – are mysterious martial artists on a collision course with the Dark Knight. Based on the hit DC Comics crossover, Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a high-flying, pulse-pounding adventure the likes of which Gotham has never seen!Two leaders unite in this Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2-pack that features Batman and Leonardo. Great adventures await because this action figure pack includes a wide array of accessories including extra sets of hands, pizza slices, swords with sheaths, a Batarang, a grapnel gun and a Bat Bomb!
This action figure 2-pack proves that these characters are more than just sidekicks! Robin and Raphael make a powerful pairing with a plethora of accessories including extra sets of hands, pizza slices, two sais, a Batarang, a grapnel gun, a Gotham sewer lid and a Bat Bomb.
Smart and strong! Batgirl and Donatello make the perfect pair in this action figure 2-pack. Accessories for these figures include extra sets of hands, a bo staff, pizza slices, a cell phone, a T-phone, a Batarang, a grapnel gun, retromutagen ooze darts and a glow-in-the-dark mutagen can. Donatello also comes with an additional head.
Serious meets silly with this Alfred and Michelangelo action figure 2-pack. Mikey’s impulsive personality will surely keep the restrained Alfred on his toes. Accessories include extra sets of hands, a skateboard, nunchucks, pizza slices and a coffee mug.
It’s an epic villain crossover in this action figure 2-pack featuring Ra’s al Ghul and Shredder. Whatever happens, stay on their good sides. These two are not known for their patience or forgiveness. Accessories include extra hands, a mutagen can, ninja stars and a sword.
We’ll be getting our hands on these, reviewing, and having all sorts of fun with all those accessories!
