Re: Eaglemoss 1/8 Batmobile rev3

Love the idea, not so in love with the idea that it's Eaglemoss who are supposedly doing it...again.

As you said Lou, third time may well be the charm. Maybe?

Re: Arlene Dahl dies at 96; Was offered Marsha role

I have heard Dahl’s name bandied about, but I didn’t not realise the extent of the nail-on-head reference point of “The Diamond Queen”. This definitely smacks of where Dozier’s head was at with S2’s “made for TV” villains. Other notable cases in point being Van Johnson/The Minstrel and his prior Pie...

Re: Cost-Cutting in Season Two

If you're looking for the visual "in episode" evidence, i'd say that a department by department approach would be a fairly comprehensive way to do it. Post-production (as you mentioned), Art Department and music are a great place to start. Episode budgets and cost summaries from Dozier's a...

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

In "Holy Rat Race," as Batman guns the Batmobile after pausing at the entrance to Bioscope Studios, a sign on the cyclone-fence gate behind the car reads "NO TRESPASSING: Desilu Studios." Keen eyes, Jim! I loved it when I saw that, in fairness i've always loved the walkthrough o...

Sweet! I'm keeping an eye out for a reasonably priced on myself. I want to do a head swap on to a more suitable body.

Re: Will Green Hornet ever come to DVD?

Diamond just made the deal with the Hornet & Lee estates for merch, so it can't be impossible... Apples and oranges in this case sadly. Keep in mind that Medicom had a license for TV GH in the early/mid-2000's way before Factory, Diamond and others and nearly ten years before the TV Batman merc...

Re: FTC: Adam West Voiced New Adventures of Batman 1977

I think these are just fine where they are, Lou. I have no real sentimentality towards TNAB but I know a lot of members here do, so i'm stoked for them that there is new merch on it's way. I did really enjoy flicking through the ToyRoom site though, it's been years since i'd taken a look over there.
