Warner Bros. Consumer Products is stepping up its portfolio of Batman toys this year, with new releases from the likes of Mattel, LEGO and Rubie's.

2014 will see Mattel release new products in the Batman toy line, including the Lights and Sounds 10 inch Core Figures, Hot Wheels Batmobile Assortment, Batman Basic Figures and a host of additional figures and characters.

The Batman toy line will be joined by Mattel's new 6 inch Total Heroes line and the 3 3/4 DC Multiverse line of action figures.

Working alongside Fisher-Price, Warner Bros. will continue to introduce DC Super Friends products to the core pre-school market.
