Cliff Robertson as “Shame” From Batman ’66 Is Now a Toy



He’s probably far from anybody’s top ten Batman villains’ list, but Cliff Robertson’s Shame, an obvious parody of Shane, is getting his own 8-inch toy from Figures Toy Company. Hey, with great licenses comes a great responsibility, and getting the classic cinematic Uncle Ben into plastic, even as a DC character, is time well spent.

Or, since NECA’s doing Snake Plissken in the same style and scale, you can have him be the president from Escape From L.A. If you want to remember that movie at all. No? Okay.
