"Dukes" and "Dallas" action figures in the works -- and yes, there's Batman, too

A 12-inch action figure of J.R. Ewing? Say it is so! Well, it will be soon, as part of the Figures Toy Co.'s just-announced action figure lines. This "Dallas" line calls for two different styles of J.R. figures inspired by the classic TV series, one in an "Oil Tycoon" style and one for the famous "Who Shot J.R." storyline.

That would be enough to send us off scoping out that extra shelf in the house, but then they've gotta throw "The Dukes of Hazzard" into this, too. Bo, Luke, Rosco and Boss to begin with, then the other characters in future waves (let's hope they're decent enough to include Coy and Vance), and in two sizes -- not just the 12-inch but also a Mego-like 8-inch???? This almost seems too good to be true.

And you really can't talk action figures without talking Batman, so he's in there, too, in the '60s TV style. Geez Louise, are they trying to kill us?! We'll take one of those carrying cases, too!

They're armed with the licenses, but there's no official word on release dates, at least in this week's press release. But follow Figures Toy Co. on Facebook to get in on the news.
