ToyNewsI has a pic up of one of Mattel's upcoming "Movie Master" figures for The Dark Knight.  Apparently, this new line (Movie Masters) will be the place to find upcoming DC movie figures, all in the 6" scale (although there might be 5" lines as well, as there will be with TDK I believe).  From what I've read, there will be 6 figures released this year for The Dark Knight, with a few chase versions thrown in.

I'll pass on the movie figures but its nice they are keeping them in the same scale and sculpted by the 4HM.

If you visit these forums there is currently a scan up from Toy Fare showing the 6" scale Dark Knight Joker figure, as well as Batman and "Gotham City Thug" which have been seen previously.

Hmm, not my cup of tea but they are nice figures. I'll likely pass on them.  Thanks for the link.

Dammit, don't tell me they're only doing Scarecrow in that set. I just bought the TDK Movie Masters last week.

Although Target hasn't put their Dark Knight stuff out yet (that I've seen), it seems like the Movie Masters stuff (the 6" scale line) has sold through pretty quickly around here.  I grabbed a few of them when I was out looking for Indy stuff on the release day, and I've just seen the same Clown Thug/Goon figure on the pegs since then.  Anyways, these seem to be selling pretty well (or just not restocked at all).  Meanwhile, I think the 5"/cartoony stuff is sitting pretty well.

TRU is the only place around here that has gotten DCUC Wave 2, Target seems to have had it at one point (Electric Supes left), but otherwise has just had Wave 1 stuff.  I'm really looking forward to Wave 3 being released - that wave looks fantastic.

While i was out at Target for the Legacy and Clone Wars stuff i figured i'd try for the batman figures as well. NO luck with an unmasked or fear toxin batman but at least i got scarecrow.

I saw (and picked up) the Batman Begins Batman at Wal-Mart, but haven't had any other sightings of these lately.  I have seen all of them so far, aside from Scarecrow and the Fear Toxin Batman.  I don't think any store has had these in stock since the May release, aside from finding that BB Batman at Wal-Mart last week.  Nicely done figures though.

Is there much difference between the TDK and BB Batman figures ?

Picked up a Movie Masters Joker at Target. I was really surprised seeing it on the pegs.

Massive bump on this thread, but i picked up the Movie Masters 2-pack with maskless bruce wayne and gordan at Target today. It was (as were all the other DC figures) 50% off.

Found the TDKR Movie Masters at Wally in Iowa today.  Case is 6 figures, 3X Batman, 2X Bane, 1X Alfred.  NO Catwoman.  Bought Alfred.  Also had some basic comic booky figures... lame.

I stumbled upon a case of TDKR 3.75 inch figs at Wally last night. Terrible figures, unless you like unarticulated pieces of crap and/or Green Banes, Red Batmans, etc. Another "home run" from Mattel, and these will probably be clearanced out as fast as the Green Lantern line was.
