I was really underwhelmed by these TDKR figures.  But it's really par for the course with this license, since they paved the way for ridiculous renditions of their main character in the name of selling more figures / making more money.  The only Batman that looks anywhere near appropriate is the Caped Crusader version.  And I haven't seen a Bane or Catwoman in that line that would draw you in.  PLUS there's not even any cardback art to let a collector or casual fan know what else is available in the line.

FAIL.

The figures dont look good in pictures and i am not impressed by the latest trailer. I may pick up Ras and Alfred if i see them but i am not planning on Bane or Catwoman.

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.

It's crappy lines (for one of the year's biggest movies no less) like this that make the Star Wars team ask "why are we putting knee and elbow articulation in our figures?"

Thanks Mattel for producing yet ANOTHER p.o.s. toy line for a DC comics-based movie, lowering the bar even more for the 3.75" action figure scale...

I haven't seen the new stuff yet, but I have to agree on the mostly horrible lines that Mattel has put out for its DC movie lines.  Aside from the Movie Masters stuff (which is pretty nice), they really put out some junk for the most part.  I really wonder if it even sells to kids, aside from a Batman or something.

Saw a case of Movie Masters at Target- four Batmen, two Banes. Got Mattel'd on Alfred, which didn't surprise me.

In a few weeks they will be a dollar everywhere.

I found the Movie Masters at Target as well today.  They had one Bane, and three Batmen.  They look pretty nice.  The small scale stuff though, as mentioned, looks pretty awful.  All I saw on the pegs for those were several different (and colorful) versions of Batman.

Well call me a hypocrite but I found the movie masters on sale and that was enough to confirm my desire for the by signal

I'm stunned actually that Ward figure even got approved. 

Found the exclusive set with Bane and Batman at TRU.  Cool, but not $35 cool.  Apparently there's an exclusive Gordon at WM.  Sigh.

Yeah the bat signal part with Gordon is pretty cool, broken glass and axe.

Grabbed Alfred at K-mart. $16 was the price, but it rang up at $12.75. Not bad.

Found Alfred this weekend at a Wal-Mart, so I've got the first three I guess.  Other than Catwoman, who else is coming in this line?  I see that the build-a-Batsignal has six parts, so I figured there was another wave later on.  I have the Catwoman "wave" on preorder at BBTS, although the rest of that wave says Batman, Bane, and Alfred as well - so I may cancel.
