Re: Rest in Peace - Fred Westbrook

A lot of memories of Fred are flooding back today! Yes, I had my issues with him early on over a couple of things...but they turned out to be insightful ventures into Fred's frame of mind...at least I think so. Early on, before the rampant onslaught of PAID "Celebrity Photo-ops," I was suited-up and...

Re: Animated 66 Batman Movie: Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

Wow, I love that. Was that Robin driving? Holy Film cell reversal. The shot of the duo approaching the Batpoles is "BAT-TASTIC!" ...but it's STRANGE that the subsequent 3 shots of Batman & Robin... ... landing at the base of the poles... ...getting into the Batmobile... ...AND the Batmobile heading...

Re: SDCC merch?

I was told by one of the guys at Factory Entertainment that the diorama was probably going to go have a $495 price tag and eventually include lights. Interesting! The guy that I talked to didn't mention anything about lights...and that they were shopping it around to manufacturers now with a target...

I picked up 2 for $10 as they were closing Sunday.
Confound it!...I meant to grab one of these on that Sunday, too!

So, "2 for $10"...as in 2 for $10 each?...OR $5 EACH?!!!

Either way - That was a great deal! - Congrats!

Re: New 6" Batmobile with figures

Why does Hot Toys care if they couldn't have rolling wheels? I personally would just be putting mine on a shelf and it would be great if the wheels didn't roll. The Batmobile model kits all have rolling wheels. I wonder if that is a different classification then a toy? Probably. ..so Hot Toys could...

Re: Absolute Final Appearance

The announcement that they made at Cincinnati Fan Expo last October was that that con was the kick-off of their Farewell Tour and that this is the last year of them doing personal appearances...at least together. Burt will probably still appear at events to promote his dog food and Great Danes rescu...

Did anyone here meet Barris and is this authentic ?
It looks real to me! I met him a few times and he was gracious enough to sign a few items for me.

Re: Best Episode or Episodes

While my favorite villains are, in order, The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler, and then Catwoman, none of the top 3 guys' episodes would be my pick!..."The Purr-fect Crime" and "Better Luck Next Time" stand out to me as THE definite episode of the series. It has just the right amount of adventure, c...

Re: Guess Who Dropped by the FF Shop?

Mauled, you'd be a celebrity that everyone would know! It's time to plan your visit to the Logansport Batcave, good sir! I would like to do that someday, Mark! I was looking how far of a detour your place would be from my path to Cincinnati last year... It was just a little too much for the time I ...

Awesome! Thanks so very much for adding the photo for me, Ben! :) So....??? What do you folks think of Batman being on the right instead? =Frank= Doesn't your revised layout have Batman on the left now? :? Anyway, when I first saw the photos of the 2 prototypes, I was wondering how they would look ...

Re: RIP ALAN RICKMAN

I was lucky enough to have met Mr. Rickman at the "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" premiere in 1991. He was a very kind and generous man. I told him that I so enjoyed his performance in "Die Hard" and his ability of playing such an intelligent and cunning bad guy...He said, "I don't know about the 'i...

Well, maybe not the ENTIRE series!...but maybe for "The Purr-fect Crime"/"Better Luck Next Time" episodes?!

It'd be like the ULTIMATE viewmaster offering! ;)

Re: 50th Anniversary "Hi Diddle Riddle"

It's like a "cyber-photo-novel!" (If you remember the 12 classic "Star Trek" ones they made back in the day!)
It's almost as good as watching the actual episode!...almost! ;)
