Re: TO THE BATPOLES #109: Louie the Lilac baffles, Bat-conference informs

Wait.... In the Louie the Lilac episode, the flower children were filmed in Griffith Park? Outside the bat Cave?! You mean I parked my car there on my trek to Bronson Caves?? Wow! Also...poor Milton Berle had a terrible skin affliction in that episode. I only just noticed it. Poor guy has little bum...

Re: Diecast (Hot Wheels, Corgi, Matchbox, etc.) appreciation thread

That’s real close, but the hood is slightly shorter than the 1930s Batmobile. Corgi and Eaglemoss both made a version this Batmobile. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/ZmsAAOSw0wRZ-ZSq/s-l1600.jpg [/quote] I’ve seen that. It’s awesome, too! When I get some time one day, I’d like to scratch build a “Bat...

Re: Diecast (Hot Wheels, Corgi, Matchbox, etc.) appreciation thread

That looks great! I think Kane wanted some remnant of his red Batman, and that car might have been the concession. That’s a great size next to the Hot Wheels 1/18 scale collection. That never occurred to me before but it makes sense. It seems Robin may also be a concession to the original red suite...

Re: Diecast (Hot Wheels, Corgi, Matchbox, etc.) appreciation thread

I love Detective Comics #27! When the Batman TV show wasn’t on in the 1970s, I ordered the big reprint of Batman’s First Appearance . Here’s the question: is this THE CAR? https://i.imgur.com/1QyR5pT.jpg I think it’s pretty close and might look good in my office next to this guy. https://i.imgur.com...

Re: Diecast (Hot Wheels, Corgi, Matchbox, etc.) appreciation thread

Awesome Find!!! I love the Corgi and Corgi Junior line. Try looking for the Husky Batmobile as well, is the first edition and is an incredible piece made in the 60s has a moving flame and comes with Batman and Robin painted. The peculiar thing that Husky/Corgi made was that they released several ve...

Re: 1977 Batman Wrist Shooting Grappling Hook Toy

I had the Spider-man one back around 1975. Never saw the Batman one before. The Spidey one even had a TV commercial for it. Oh...you reminded me of something else. Around ‘77, the Sears catalog had an RC Batmobile and RC Spider-Man car. I got the Batmobile, my brother got the Spider-car. Mine worke...

Re: 1977 Batman Wrist Shooting Grappling Hook Toy

Found the Spidey commercial http://youtu.be/DQN134L_fzc Whoah! Cool find! Maybe I was a little harsh. When I was 12, I was a little disappointed. However, I noted it was made by AHI I think that’s Azrak Hamway International, which is related to Mego. I am a huge Mego fan, Action Jackson fan, and Wo...

Re: 1977 Batman Wrist Shooting Grappling Hook Toy

Ok, I found some adverts but no photo of the actual piece of junk toy. At least I found proof of its existence!

1977 Batman Wrist Shooting Grappling Hook Toy

Back around 1977, I recall an ad for a Batman toy I’ve never seen or heard mentioned since. I think it was advertised in this issue: https://dc.fandom.com/wiki/Batman_Vol_1_290 . If it wasn’t that issue, it was the one before or after. The ad art looked amazing! Batman had this blue device on his wr...

Re: Batman 1989 on the Big Screen!

Batman ‘89 had a new sound mix? I noticed the gunfire was much improved, that’s it. I’ve been thinking about the movie all week. Parents brought their kids and it’s not really a kid movie. I wasn’t a fan of the new sound mix. Sure the original mix used the sound of Dirty Harry’s Magnum many times, ...

Re: Batman 1989 on the Big Screen!

Always a pleasure to see these films again on the big screen, despite Batman ‘89 getting a new sound mix that changed most of the sound effects. I do agree that the Batman ‘66 feature film needs a rerelease soon. Batman ‘89 had a new sound mix? I noticed the gunfire was much improved, that’s it. I’...

Batman 1989 on the Big Screen!

My wife and I just saw Batman 1989 at the movie theater! Wow...It really is a different experience on the big screen. 30 years ago, she and I saw it when it first came out. That movie is responsible for the whole wave of batmania in ‘89. It brought the TV show back to the TV set and the serials to W...
