Re: McFarlane Toys doing Batman 66 figures?

I've always thought a cowl-less Batman figure should wear a bathrobe over his costume, but I guess that's probably too niche even for Batman '66 merchandise.

Re: For those who have cowls (or those who don't)

If Adam West's anecdote from his book "Back to the Batcave" (Chapter 21) is accurate, one of his cowls may have saved him from a serious injury during a publicity tour for the movie: "At one theater, we learned that if we ever stopped we were in trouble: after making our way through a...

Re: A Note Regarding the Subterranean Blue Grotto Guides

I can't decide which Amazon-related news from this week makes me cringe more - the excessive hassle being dished out by Amazon over the Bat-books, or the endless pictures of the embarrassingly-shaped Bezos rocket.

Re: Second Volume of The Subterranean Blue Grotto Guides to BATMAN '66 is LIVE!

I'm not generally prone to impulse purchases, but I can't believe how quickly my fingers went to Amazon and ordered this book. Also was the case for volume 1.
(You could put a box of rocks up for sale and label it volume 3 of this series, and I'd easily fall for it.)

Re: 1989 Batman Batarang released NECA

Big Screen SUITS- for me: 1- West (Of course) 2- Kilmer's panther. totally greed with Ben, so now I have to make a list. 3. Keaton, Batman Returns. so much cleaner than the original. 4. Affleck in BVS. 5- Keaton's original. started the whole rubber suit with body armor thing, and I think the first ...

Re: The Bat-ram

Not quite the same, but there was also the "BATTERING RAM" mounted on the Batcycle, which Batman uses to break in to King Tut's hideout and rescue Robin, towards the climax of "Batman's Waterloo" in season 2.

Re: VBC - Tuesday 12th January - 55th Anniversary Viewing Party and Discussions

This seems like an appropriate time to quote the Next Week trailer at the end of the final episode of Season 2 ("The Duo Defy"): "Next week, a repeat of the very first Batman broadcast. The show that gave television a big breath of fresh air. If you missed it then, don't miss it next ...

Re: Allan Moore's Gone Off - AGAIN

I'm not entirely sure I agree with Alan Moore's comment that super hero movies have infantilized anyone. Today's super hero movies probably wouldn't be earning grosses at the $1 billion level if they weren't aimed at younger and older audiences. I think super hero movies have grown up more than the ...

Re: Things you didn't notice or remember until seeing the DVDs

I've noticed this kind of color degradation in older shows and movies whenever some kind of optical effect was overlayed on top of the footage (e.g. opening or closing credits). In this scene, there is an expanding bat that's overlayed during the transition. Perhaps it's a side effect of the optical...
