WarnerMedia Global Brands and Experiences launches ‘The Batman’ toys and collectibles

To mark the cinematic release of The Batman this March, WarnerMedia Global Brands and Experiences has launched its most robust Batman film product collection in over a decade – including a raft of licensed toys and collectables. 

Collectable manufacturer McFarlane is offering The Batman, The Riddler and Catwoman figures, all available to pre-order for $19.99 USD. The Batcycle, based on the one seen in the new film, will also be on sale for pre-order for $29.99, while an authentic “The Batman” film statue, created with direct input from the film’s producer and director and based on Robert Pattinson’s character, is also available for pre-order now. Additional figures and statues inspired by “The Batman” will be announced this year.

The LEGO  collection includes three building sets, featuring minifigures based on Batman, Selina Kyle, Alfred and Lieutenant Gordon, along with Super-Villains The Riddler and The Penguin. The collection’s new sets are: Batcave: The Riddler Face-off ($79.99), Batmobile: The Penguin Chase ($29.99 USD), and the Batman and Selina Kyle Motorcycle.

“The Batman” Batmobile from Hot Wheels R/C features epic remote-control performance with authentic details and movie-like sculpts for the adult collector and fan of Batman’s iconic vehicles. The 1:10 scale Ultimate edition features movie accurate graphics, LED lights, smoke and flame FX from both the hood and the rear, detailed exterior and interior, a Batcave-inspired plinth, and a poseable Batman figure behind the wheel. It boasts high-tech features such as light and sound effects and working suspension, as well as a diorama plinth.

The Funko collection celebrating “The Batman” features exclusive items available at Target, Walmart, Hot Topic and Pop in a Box. Brought to life in Funko’s signature style, the lineup introduces many new Pop! figures based on Batman, Selina Kyle (Catwoman), and the infamous Super-Villains The Riddler and The Penguin ($12). Funko is also releasing new collectables of Batman driving the Batmobile and Selina Kyle riding her motorcycle, as seen in the action-packed film’s streets of Gotham City. A standout item in the collection is a Bruce Wayne Pop! figure in his civilian clothes (exclusively available at Target).

Kids and kidults can recreate epic crime-fighting scenes from the movie with toys from Spin Master, including new Batman 4-inch and 12-inch ($8.99-$10.49) action figures featuring Selina Kyle and The Penguin, plus an authentic movie look-a-like Batmobile 4-Inch Scale ($32.99) that comes fully loaded with sounds, LED engine lights, headlights and undercarriage residual glow that brings the toy to life. Also available is the Turbo Boost Batmobile RC ($48.99), which wheelies at high-performance speeds with the push of a button.

Finally, Rubies is debuting a selection of officially licensed adult and children’s costumes in celebration of the new movie. Outfits inspired by Batman and Selina Kyle are available for preorder now and will ship by late February. Additional accessories, as well as costumes based on The Riddler and Batman costumes for pets, will launch in time for Halloween.
