A straight comparison between Tytus and the Giant is certainly faulty, but the problem is that Mattel had the opportunity to make a large scale highly articulated figure of BATMAN and still went cheap and made him almost exactly as they made Tytus.
I do agree with this, I just think one of the problems is that Hasbro, maybe willing to take lower margins on some items, or Mattel paid more for their DC rights than Hasbro did for Marvel. or a combo of both
