Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #095: Mego Action Figures Emerge from the Fog

I was well out of the boxed Mego demographic in the 70s, but they fascinated me because I would have loved Batman, Robin, Batgirl and the villains in 1967. So when my little brother received 8" Spider-Man from one grandmother, as a birthday present, I worked on the other grandmother to get him Batma...

Re: Mego line heading to Target stores

FTC have been selling us figures with the absolute worst bodies ever produced...especially the female bodies, you can’t even pose them let alone play with them. I am an opener and haven't had too many problems posing my FTC figures. (Some of the generic bodies bought through Classic TV Toys have be...

Re: Cut/missing scenes from episodes

Didn't notice this until now but an interesting find! That's Sterling Holloway who was the voice of Winnie The Pooh in Disney's cartoons. Even more bizarre! I was taken to see "Winnie-the-Pooh and the Honey Tree" at the cinema just around the corner from the one screening the "Batman" movie in its ...

Re: Aunt Harriet in the 1966 movie.

On page 67 of the pdf, there is a short scene in which Dick is upset that Bruce has been kidnapped and Aunt Harriet talks about getting ransom money ready. It follows another cut scene, of the Air Force being scrambled about all the flying umbrellas. Sterling Holloway was to play Major Terry and th...

Re: The Surprise Comic Every BATMAN ’66 Fan Should Read

I just asked my local Aussie comic shop to add this title to my standing order. Issues #1 and 2 are already out, but sold out. When they tried to order more from the supplier, they were sold out, too. Today I went prowling eBay and secured those wayward issues. From issue #3, they will go into my pu...

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

I discovered today that my new NJ Croce bendable Egghead is quite well scaled to the Mattel "Batman '66" action figure range. Egghead is an exclusive with the second boxed set of bendables. The Mattel Riddler is customised by me into the John Astin version. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1907/434039...

Re: Batman at the Boxoffice

IMDb was lacking Aussie dates for both the TV series and the movie. IMDb has allowed me to add a premiere date for the movie (Yay!), but the TV series comes up with a null field when editing. Weird. Double yay! I worked out how to edit the premiere date of a TV series on IMDb. I had to go to the in...

Re: Toy Photography with 66 Batman Figures.

My latest 7” custom: Golden Eagle of “Titans West”. (His long-promised return in the “New Titans” comic was cut tragically short in the “Titans Hunt” storyline.) Created by combining elements of an 8” El Dorado (“Super Friends!”), 7” Dr Sivano and the wings from Hawkgirl. The pair of red knickers ar...

So its not so strange and not such a risk for them. Brilliant casting of Ace as Battlecat.
I don't think Joker, Penguin and Riddler as a three-pack Wave 2 would be any kind of risk, either. ;)
