Re: SDCC Exclusive Pop

SDCC is putting out a maskless version of Kato which makes no sense and doesn't look good. Last year they had the two pack of The Green Hornet and Kato. I understand the idea behind a mask-less Kato--trying to attract the basic Lee collector, but something tells me the face will look more like the ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #112: Court BAT-tles: The Law on the '66 Show

Its odd that a series that set out to have Batman be so "up" on just about every law known to mankind would eventually be portrayed as being legally inept in certain episodes. I'm nut sure If that was done for humor (not that average audience member would be able to identify holes in Batman's applic...

Re: BURT WARD Gets Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Finally. Burt certainly deserves the honor. Before landing the role of Robin, there was no model or example to base his energetic/aggressive version on at all. His version made such an impact, that I would say the majority of adapted Robins to follow borrowed from his performance in one way or anoth...

Re: Favorite Catwoman Actress?

Newmar. Although the comic version has taken on other personality traits over the decades, the Newmar version remains the one most associated with the character. Her first appearance is as flawless as any villain in the series, and arguably one of the best live action interpretations of a comic char...

Re: Happy birthday to The Siren

Wow. Happy 86th birthday to Miss Collins. Its funny--many only associate her with the Dynasty character, almost as if that was typical of her work, but in each decade of her career, she was almost a completely different actress considering the roles she accepted. No one can say Collins acting style ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #111: "The Wrong Earth" and "The Batman Radio Show"

Guys--a very unusual episode, but a breath of fresh, non-3rd season air! "The Wrong Earth" review was fun, and it remanded me of the kind of alternate world stories (or "Imaginary Stories") DC used to publish long ago, like the "Sons" of Superman and Batman feature in World's Finest . Certainly not ...

Re: 1977 Batman Wrist Shooting Grappling Hook Toy

It's obvious that EON's James Bond Moonraker "borrowed" this concept with James Bond's wrist dart launcer...The toys were from 1977, Moonraker wouldn't appear until 1979 lol. Wrist mounted devices / weapons were a pretty old concept at the time, especially in spy novels and comics, so I really don'...

Re: Twilight actor may be next screen Batman

Wait and see.

If anyone could stomach balding, short, unathletic Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman, then the rest of earth's male population deserves a chance with the role.

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

A fun episode as always gentlemen. I'm glad to hear that there was a reasonable smattering of '66 content at the BGU Batman Conference. This is definitely an event I would have loved to have attended or even potentially participated in but unfortunately it just wasn't feasible in terms of timing a ...

Great vintage ad. eBay is always such a great source for building a '66 Batman (or influenced) media coverage collection.

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

Do we know if the replacement of Riddle with May a case of deciding a new sound was needed for Season 3 in terms of the format or a case of Riddle "moving on" and necessitating the replacement? Riddle I know spent the bulk of the 67-68 season doing all the scores for the Ron Ely "Tarzan" series. It...

Re: hornets sting

I just made my first one, and I started with an extendable selfie-stick (available on Ebay for under $20) as the main body. It extends to about 42 inches. I removed the hardware and cut the front and back tips with a hacksaw. The handle I made from a part from a curling iron I found in a thrift sto...

I also enjoyed her performance, and as Lord Death Man indicated, she pretty much was the brains of the operation given how little Louie knew about making perfume. I also liked her line reading of 'I was hoping you'd say that,' after Louie says he intends to double-cross Bruce and Dick and kill Batg...
