Re: New Mezco Figure

While I was reading that article I couldn't help but notice that there will be a One:12 Collective '89 batman!!! I know it may be treason on this board but the 1989 movie is probably my favorite of all the film appearances! The Batphone, I don't see any treason. The Michael Keaton Batman is my 2nd ...

Re: New Mezco Figure

Add me to the list of people not digging it. However, it’s not because of the facial likeness (which is fine), it’s because I’m not a fan of any of that big-head style of figures. Maybe it’s just generational, but I grew up with regular action figures that were normal proportioned ; G.I. Joe, Big J...

Re: NEW 2019 HALLMARK BATMAN ORNAMENTS!!!

Let’s post a pic of the pose we’d like to see. 2B7E6456-45E9-4FDF-842A-198904AF76A2.jpeg Szabol, I definitely agree on the second pic as an ornament release. Funny thing is I believe, if I recall correctly, that was supposed to be the actual original Batman ornament release a couple years ago that ...

Re: NEW 2019 HALLMARK BATMAN ORNAMENTS!!!

Went to my local Hallmark this past Saturday to make my reservation orders for all three. The store staff had no idea what I was talking about which apparently made me the first one to order them. I wrote down on their reserve list '1966 Batgirl ornament', etc. When I got home there was a message fr...

Re: RIP Seymour Cassell aka "Cancelled"

I remember Seymour well and really enjoyed his work. I have to say that first picture of his older self at the link was incredible. If you just add a pair of glasses he would've been the quintessential Commissioner James Gordon from the comics. :shock: Tim Burton originally should've hired him inste...

Re: Big News for Burger Fans!

Invariably, when I use the drive=thru there's a delay in getting my food. They always say, "Sorry about your wait!" as they hand the bag to me. I put on my old Drill Instructor voice and say, "ALRIGHT! FIRST YOU TAKE ALL DAY, AND NOW YOU'RE MAKING FAT JOKES?!?!?!?!?". Some get it and laugh. Some ju...

Re: The Ultimate Guide TO Batman

Despite the fact it has Batfleck's Charcoal Briquette-Man as the cover's mainstay I'll pick it up for Adam and the other Batmen.

Re: Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle Returns

Can't say the fact it won't do wheelies disappoints me as I don't see myself revving it up on the floor and letting it rip like I once did so long ago. I just want it for nostalgia and collection display purposes.

Re: Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle Returns

I'm definitely there for this! Back in Christmas of '74 the two greatest gifts I ever received were both the stunt cycle and the scramble van. Now they're both lost to time and I have a chance to get back one item. Too bad the original iconic box art isn't being used as well but that's no big deal. ...

Adam's Batman in Battle of the Pop Culture TV Heroes

I don't believe this was posted before. A friend sent this to me and I thought it was kind of cool, right down to the ad on the ring skirting. This is a great, somewhat goofy and fun trip down '60s and '70s memory lane. 8-)

Re: New Mezco Figure

SprangFan, Once again you read my mind. I was about to point out the caricature-like quality but you beat me to it. I also find that Adam's expression is kind of goofy like someone is holding out a big slice of chocolate cake or something that he can't wait to devour. I don't find the expression mat...

Re: New Mezco Figure

Just as a point of inquiry I have to ask what is the obsession of these toy companies over the last number of years with the cutesy, oversized balloon heads on the figures?

Re: Unusual Batgirl Picture.

It looks very closely like Yvonne but I don't believe it's her. The nose is slightly different and the eyes look a little bigger. In the Yvonne photos you can see a slight cleft in her chin so it's too bad the Batgirl's gloved hand is just blocking that very place or it would be a piece of cake to d...

It's really a travesty in so many ways that Mr. Finger never got the appreciation and recognition he really deserved - and still does. :cry:

Re: Batman 80th Anniversary Merchandise Coming Soon

You mean to tell me by looking at the figure that the Great and Powerful Wizard of Batman, his excellency Frank Miller, FORGOT to include purple gloves on The Dark Knight Returns??? Oh, the horror.... 8-)
