I’ve seen Batman Unlimited Toys on shelves for over a year and been confused as to what unseen version of the Caped Crusader they were for. Well now we know (and knowing is half the battle!). The toys are tied to a new straight-to-DVD film (and eventual series?) hitting stores on May 12th. Apparently aiming for a younger audience, I have mixed feelings about the design of the characters. I appreciate the cartoon keeping the classic blue and gray look of Batman, but the enlarged and distorted Bat-symbol on his chest just seems odd. I’m pleased to see the show has gone with Red Robin’s pre-New 52 costume, and Green Arrow is passable enough, but what’s up with the anime-influence design of both Nightwing and Flash? With the movie finally hitting shelves on May 12th you can expect to see more toys including Batman’s robot dinosaur who eats criminals. Yeah, that’s a real thing.
Like Bond? James Bond? Want all 22 “official” Bond flicks on Blu-ray in one handy dandy collection? Now’s your chance. For the franchise’s 50th Anniversary MGM and 20th Century Fox are releasing a new box set with all the films plus 130 hours of bonus materials. You can find the full press release after the jump.
