3.75" Batman Classic TV Series - BATGIRL!

Batman Classic TV Series Action Figures - Yvonne Craig Batgirl - Funko 2017

My absolute favorite reveal from NY Toy Fair 2017 was the Batman '66 3.75" action figures from Funko. Beyond the fact that I just love this nostalgic property, the character choices of the first wave blew my mind. With any other line, I would have expected an assortment of the heavy hitters. The fact that Joker, Riddler, and Penguin were absent, but characters like Bookworm and King Tut were present in all their glory makes me think there are definitely a few more waves coming out. Egghead, Mad Hatter, False Face, Marsha Queen of Diamonds - they're all fair game at this rate. These figures are more articulated than the similarly-scaled ReAction figures, but they kind of have the same feel. The character likenesses are more like caricatures than true representations, but there's no doubt who they all are, especially in the case of the Otto Preminger Mister Freeze and the Eli Wallach chase. Makes me very excited for variant Riddlers and Catwomen in the future. Let's check out Batgirl below!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the Catwoman figure from Wave 1.

And here she is with a some of the others I've picked up so far: Mister Freeze (Eli Wallach), King Tut, Catwoman, Batgirl, Bookworm, and Mister Freeze (Otto Preminger).

And with the two other Yvonne Craig Funko items so far: Dorbz and POP.

And with two other great Batgirl '66 items from Mattel and NJCroce.

  1. I love this line! Everything about it just seems so appropriate for Batman 66. I think that this could be the definitive Batman 66 line!
