Bring some nostalgia back into your life and relive those times with the upcoming Classic Batman Funko POPs!
These POPs are based on the classic Batman TV show that aired all the way back in 1966, a far cry from today’s Batman. Back then things were a lot less dark, they aired on the more colorful and camp side of the comics. This also comes with a few firsts, as we’ve never seen a POP of Mr. Freeze or King Tut before! I know when it comes to Mr. Freeze people have been clamoring for a POP of him for quite some time, though when he did come it was expected he would be the Batman & Robin version. But either way i’m glad they released him finally!
There was a few different looks they could of gone with, but the one they chose is the “Otto Preminger” representation of Mr. Freeze with the orange eyebrows and bald head giving it away. The Riddler is based on the “Frank Gorshin” style, as he did both versions in his time with and without the classic bowler hat. We first saw these back in the New York Toy Fair, feel free to click here to see that article (Which also includes photos of the POPs in person). What are your thoughts on this new line, anything you think they missed? Glam shots and info coming up!
