Re: What if Batman had worn the Ben Cooper costume

:shock: http://www.66batman.com/forums/download/file.php?id=8348&mode=view The series would have been cancelled after the pilot. He would have looked like some kids' father trying to be funny (like an overgrown kid) in a brightly advertised assemblage of vinyl. There were comic fans who expressed d...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #096: As the “Ffogg” clears, we ask “Where's the Beef?”

Guys, well...the Londinium arc comes to its deserved end. Regarding Lady Prudence, I do believe her behavior toward Robin was building a sort of Catwoman-to-Batman dynamic between the two, where Prudence--like Newmar's Catwoman, who placed Batman in many a death trap, but did not hide her interest i...

Re: BAT 77 Episode #03 - Sweet Tooth Delights / Shark Tooth Bites

Interesting BAT 77... About the Batmobile, you questioned why the Batmobile would need an oil change when its atomic powered. Well, one, was it ever established that the Batmobile in this series--in a universe all its own (meaning it had no in-universe connection to any other Batman production)--was...

Re: Mego line heading to Target stores

The proportions are all over the place on that figure: the emblem is as oversized as the Batman Halloween costume for kids in the 60s, the belt is far too small or thin, and the arms seem stubby. That, plus the odd size seems like it will not lead to great sales.

Re: Remember Crazy Foam from the 70's? It's baaack!

Warning: Today, perhaps because of unexpectedly warm temperatures(?), or perhaps because it just wanted to be crazy... my can of “Batman Crazy Foam” decided to spill its contents over everything near it in my collectibles room. It has been moved to the bathroom (where I thought it was!) and continu...

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

My brother and I were pretty big Mego fans in the 70s; if memory serves, the only World's Greatest Super-Hero figures we did not have were Wonder Woman, The Thing, Supergirl, any of the 4 Teen Titans, the Green Goblin, the Lizard, Riddler and Conan. We had the Batcave, and all of the Bat-vehicles. Y...

Re: When Worlds Collide! (Funko)

The chest emblem on the Funko reminds me of the Captain Action Batman uniform emblem with the gold foil oval look--

I cannot recall any other Bat-figures with the gold oval, since the standard color (as we all know) has always been yellow.

Re: Script: THE SILENT FILM CAPERS, by Dick Carr

Pauline's shepherd's crook becomes a sleeping-gas gun, eliminating her seductive come-on to Robin. Even with treachery in her heart, the Bo Peep character, like Robin, exudes innocence. Sexing up their scene together would've sounded a false note, IMHO. I don't think so; Robin--or Dick Grayson--was...

Re: The second mask

That's a good point. Its too much of a "second skin" that does not distract the viewer in the way the pilot mask does with its unusual features.

Re: BAT 77 Episode #02 - The Moonman Shines / The Catwoman Designs

A few things... Filmation redesigning Catwoman was so pointless in that her costume was--a leotard with nothing that would sell the "cat" motif at all--as in head gear, mask--anything that the comics ever used in the then-past three decades of the character. A cat logo on the chest might as well be ...

Re: The Next Big Four

Hi guys Hope you are well So I was thinking ( yep again) And was wondering if there was a 2nd movie which different 4 villains would you include (Let's pretend it would work) The problem is characters having a believable reason to work together / mutual interest. I could not see the Sanders Mr. Fre...

Yeah, no. What John said! I said it before, and I will say it again, Why can’t they just stop with this stuff already! Because Christopher Nolan's Batman films were phenomenal successes that appealed to comic fan and regular movie-goer alike, so that model is what drives all versions to follow. Thi...

Re: THE JOKER Looms Large on Final ARCHIE/BATMAN '66 #5 Cover

I think he meant what's the "in universe" explanation. I agree it seems a stretch for Batman to travel to sleepy Riverdale just to hang out at Pop's Chocklit Shop or watch Moose play football. Yeah, but so many of the '66-based comics were treated as light and/or silly (IOW, not played like season ...

Re: Real Names

Hi guys I was thinking- only the Mad Hatter, King Tut, Dr.Cassandra and Mr.Freeze were given their alter ego/ real names on the show. Have I missed any? The Green Hornet's true identity--Britt Reid--was named a few times during the crossover. Kato was mentioned as well, though the episode's writer ...
