At the American International Toy Fair in New York last week, folks were going batty for all the new merchandise to feature the Caped Crusader in all of his many forms. Among the hottest items were at the NECA booth, where they unveiled their 1/4 scale BATMAN figures based on Michael Keaton as Batman (1989) and Adam West as Batman (1966). Today comes word that both figures are available for pre-order right now over at Entertainment Earth, and I've got full details on The Rock Father below...
