Action Figure Insider has posted up the newest round of Mattel’s exclusive toy reveals for this year’s upcoming San Diego ComicCon.

“Batman™ Arkham Knight Batmobile ($85)


In the video game, Batman™ battles all-new threats in Gotham City with the help of an arsenal-equipped vehicle. This Batman™: Arkham Knight Batmobilefeatures premium, highly-detailed deco and authentic sounds straight from the game, and much more!
The tires can do a complete 360-degree spin, allowing the vehicle to turn on a dime… very handy for pursuing villains. When the top of the vehicle is pressed downward the firepower is revealed: on the left side, a riot suppressor rubber bullet gun, and on the right side, a high-powered Gatling gun, both with sounds and light effects – straight from the game! Hold the activation button longer than three seconds to create a red glow, simulating heat transferring, and press the rear button to turn on the headlights and play the game’s iconic Bat-swarm sound effect. There are also controls to rev the engine, to see the exhaust light up, and for the sound of the cannon. The vehicle comes with an articulated DC Comics Multiverse Arkham City Batman figure with a fabric cape allowing Batman™ to sit in the driver’s seat!

This product will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com on June 24, 2014, to be picked up at San Diego Comic-Con. It will also be available for purchase at the show. DC Comics™ Total Heroes™ Ultra Cyborg ($25)


Tech-equipped Cyborg joins the Total Heroes™ lineup! As homage to the Super Powers Cyborg figure, this figure has silver VUM deco, and arrives with two interchangeable heads, his classic look and an updated stylized version, as well as three sets of hands. This hybrid of man and machine brings with him a tool and gear for just about any job he might encounter, including a Mega Blade, a Concussion Cannon and a Sonic Scrambler (all of which fit onto his arms), and a Jetpack with Airfoil Wings so he can take to the air!

This product will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com on June 24, 2014, to be picked up at San Diego Comic-Con. It will also be available for purchase at the show, then at MattyCollector.com on August 5, 2014. Disney•Pixar Cars 2014 Special Edition Neon Racers Gift Pack ($50)


Welcome to Japan! Shu Todoroki is hosting an endurance night race from Mt. Fuji to Tokyo’s colorful Ginza District. Get ready to experience the exciting world of neon racing!

In Japan, the presentation of a gift is as important as the gift itself. You can experience this Japanese tradition with the 2014 Special Edition Neon Racers Gift Pack. The specially designed furoshiki, Japanese wrapping cloth, features comic book-style illustrations of the Neon Racers story. Open the wrap and you’ll find a racing diorama with die-cast characters Lightning McQueen and Shu Todoroki illuminating the streets of Tokyo in their amazing customized lighting and neon deco. Please enjoy! Tanoshinde kudasai! This product will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com on June 24, 2014, to be picked up at San Diego Comic-Con. It will also be available for purchase at the show.

From the desk of Dravenheart:

“This is a variation of Batman I’ve wanted to do for a while, but I always hated that he was pretty much the same size as the Hulk. The story was good, but the look just didn’t make any sense to me. However, in Batman: Arkham City, one of the alternate skins is Dark Knight Returns, and they really slimmed him up. He’s still big, but not huge. I liked how it looked, so I jumped on that variation. The only problem I hit was finding a cape and head appropriately sized, but that came together thanks to Young Justice Batman.

Champion worked great since his belt could be repainted directly into Batman’s utility belt. I cut the gauntlet blades off of a 90s Animated Batman, glued them to the body, then sculpted around them. A full repaint from there, and that pretty much finished him off. I did have a different head option, but I completely forgot to paint it up, so instead of giving it more time, I just went ahead and popped the head from Young Justice Batman on him, and figure I’ll use the other head if I remake him with the yellow emblem.”
