The following Toys“R”Us exclusives were available at the Comic Convention and will be available online at Toysrus.com/ComicConvention while supplies last:
BATMAN™ Classic TV Series Batgirl from Mattel®
Brave and beautiful in 6-inch scale, and rendered in actress Yvonne Craig’s likeness, this classic TV series Batgirl features dynamic, iconic colors, a two-sided soft goods cape and 16 points of articulation for ultimate playtime action and posing. Collectors can display her on the included base and choose between one of two retro cityscape backdrops. Available only online at Toysrus.com/ComicConvention.
BATMAN™ vs Harley Quinn from Schleich®
With this two-pack, supervillain Harley Quinn leads her own battle against the formidable and legendary BATMAN™. Complete with her signature black and red harlequin costume, this figure’s false smile hides a sneaky criminal, so BATMAN will need all of his high-flying skills to fight her. Available only online at Toysrus.com/ComicConvention.
G.I. JOE DESERT DUEL from Hasbro®
It’s a fast-firing, high-rolling G.I. JOE-Cobra battle with this DESERT DUEL pack. Complete with a Cobra Basilisk tank and an Elite Horseman figure to drive it, fans can load missiles in the elevating, rotating launcher, making the set’s Cobra Air Trooper figure a rolling nightmare for the G.I. JOE commandos. But with the included Philip “Chuckles” Provost figure, kids and collectors can fold out the camouflage canopy on the F.O.E. Striker 4-wheeler and take aim at enemies with the poseable cannon. And, if the pack’s Night Fox figure has to pursue enemies on foot, the cannon comes off the vehicle.
