And possibly the new molded gloves for 66 Batman line(?) Just saw these links on CTVT, but no pics just yet:

I'm skeptical about the molded gloves, but what other figures that they are producing have them?

I'm VERY interested in the molded gloves for customizing!

I'm skeptical about the women's boots. They have a bad track record with those.

And then, they are Invisible Girl boots!!! I was hoping for other colors of the Catwoman pirate boots, with both flat and high heels!

As long as they don't shatter when you put them onto the figure, I suppose that they will be okay.

I've been wanting to do a barbarian skeleton. Those parts will be a big help.

A green motorcycle helmet? I guess Evel is getting a green outfit later on.

They have a "walking cane" listed. Is that a '66 prop for Riddler? All-purpose Penguin?

Those prices are really nice.

Selling pieces off for Conan will prevent people who have an incomplete Conan from buying a new one. They'll just buy the missing part instead. I think it's a tad too soon to part out these figs.

I think that the Evel figure comes with a cane, so that's why they have it listed.

But why put up the spare parts so soon, I wonder?

Probably Evel's cane...?

I have an original Conan missing the brown fur trunks. Does anyone make repros of those?

To make money.

I'm wondering why they're parting out these and not the Batman figs. Namely Batman and Riddler belts.

I think it was mentioned in another thread that the owners of FTC said they couldn't part out the DC stuff due to the licensing agreement.

And yet they pretty much have everything thing else parted out.

Yea, that was what i was told when I inquired about their belts. I didnt understand that either. The response was basically "We wont be able to do that with these figures"

I still say wait and see on this though.

Back in the days of Christmas catalogs, they always called it Evel's 'Swagger Stick'. Here's Evel and his 'Swagger Stick' in the 1973 Aldens catalog (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10202663822623463&l=9f66fb7eb7).

Thank you, sir. I've heard a lot of different names for someone's junk, but "Swagger Stick" is hard to beat, pun intentional.

On one hand, it sounds like total bs and they want people buying complete figures to finish original Megos. But OTO, Batman's utility belt is a trademark of the character and since Riddler's belt is just Bat's in purple...

I can see things like Robin's tunic not being available as one multi-colored piece, but a separate tunic with different or solid color could be.

Pictures have been loaded and no, the molded gloves are not the TV Batman/Robin gloves but rather Evel Knievel's... Bummer!

I like these offerings--I'd like the barbarian belt in gray, too, and the barbarian scabbard-belt in black & brown as well.

Would work well with a He-man custom.

The black jumpsuit has a real Elvis vibe to it.

wonder if they are using the Evel gloves for the 66 line villains. That purple looks like the right shade for Cesar Romero. And that grey sure would work for the Mad Hatter.
