Re: Help me remember! Please!

There was an episode of The Avengers' (the original legendary '60s British TV series) 1965 season that featured a phony train set-up. It was the second episode of Diana Rigg's first year as the absolutely astounding-in-all-ways Miss Emma Peel. In it, John Steed visits an eccentric old rich guy who l...

Re: New Commission Art Carney the Archer

Sketch, from everything you've displayed your artwork & talent are second to none. It's absolutely incredible! Not only is the definition impeccable but the colors are perfection as well. I'm in complete awe.

Re: The Latest Batman Item You Acquired?

I'm very happy that I just acquired a 1960 Polar Lights Batmobile model kit. I had a lot of trouble trying to find one for the last few years to complete my Polar Lights Bat model collection. I will be painting it in metallic blue and put Bat-logo decals on the doors and trunk to make it closer to ...

Oh, just wait, young padawan, just wait. The price of admission is nothing compared to what it's going to cost you in the long run... ;)

Re: Keaton Back As Batman?

I'm a fan of the two Keaton films and have a substantial amount of Keaton Batman in my Bat collection. My personal opinion on this? I really wish Warner Bros. and DC Comics would just go bankrupt, close down, and then dry up and blow away in the wind already. They are both so dysfunctional and haven...

Re: 1960s Animated Batman videogame for Mac computers?

I bought this back in the later '90s. It was an interactive on-screen comic book CD adapted from an episode of the 1968 Saturday morning animated Filmation Batman series. It was a lot of fun but once I upgraded from Windows '98 to Vista it no longer functioned. Same went for the Superman one I had t...

Re: New Batman Movie

Personally, I gave up on Hollywood - both the big screen and small - a few years back. I realize now that Hollyweird will never make a proper Batman film because as decades go by every successive generation that's employed there understands less and less about the source material of not just Batman,...

As much as these figures interest me I'll bypass them - mail-wise - unless I see them in a store somewhere and that will be....? :roll:

I'd love to have a look at this Joker but you know how Bradford Exchange screwed over those of us Canada with the 2nd Berlin Wall - commercial version.

Re: The (Jigsaw) Puzzles are Coming

Jim, I made this one last year and it was a hoot. Best suggested strategy is the time-honored one of completing the outline first and filling in afterward. You already have the center logo as a guide. From there I went with locating, completing, and roughly positioning within the frame the villains'...

John Mack, yes, Johns is one but my long-time comic fan pals and I are all for dumping ever-smilin' Jim Lee as well. He's also well responsible for the train wreck DC Comics have become.

Re: Eaglemoss Batman Decades Figures

I had a look at the Eaglemoss USA site. I'm interested in the figures from the '60s, ''70s, '80s' and '90s. I'll check at my comic shop where my visits have dropped from weekly a couple years ago to bi-annually as there just seems to be so little of interest emerging onto the market.

Okay, this interests me severely. I just may continue collecting as there is hope after all.
