Batman Mezco

Mezco Toyz debuted its new Batman Mez-itz line from the classic 1966-68 “Batman” TV series in an event held today at Ripley’s Believe It or Not Odditorium in New York City’s Times Square … but, while factual, that hardly captures the excitement of the day because Batman drove up in the Batmobile to unveil the toys.

And I got to be Robin, the goateed 30-something Wonder, sitting shotgun next to the Caped Crusader as he steered through the real-life Gotham City.


Pow! Zonk! Sock! Mezco! Believe it or not, old chums, because the Batmobile is heading to Ripley’s in the real Gotham City this June to deliver justice sweet, sweet Batman '66 toys.

Announced in a press release today, Mezco Toyz will premiere its Mez-Itz line based on the 1966-68 “Batman” TV series in super fashion by driving a replica of the Batmobile to Ripley’s Believe It or Not Odditorium in New York City’s Times Square on June 25 at 11 a.m. Once it arrives, the Mez-Itz Batman, Robin and Batmobile will be on public display for the first time. The Batmobile will also remain parked for fans to check it out until 1 p.m.
