Re: Just came across this: Hot Toys 1/6 Cesar Romero Joker

Hot Toys would be NUTS not to make Julie Newmar first. Nothing against Lee Meriwether but Julie Newmar is the gold standard for Catwoman. I'd buy a Julie but not a Lee. If Hot Toys holds rights for only the '66 movie likenesses, then Meriwether it will be. But, let's face it: odds are none of this ...

Hot Toys Adam West vs. Bruce Lee...

As this stop motion video features the HT 1966 Batman (and Robin!), I thought it might be best to link it here in the 'Merchandise' section.

Pretty funny, and certainly well executed. :lol:

Re: Tweeterhead at SDCC

As nice as these are, I can't get by the face sculpting - which for me, and for the price, just isn't on the mark. Batgirl is certainly terrific, but Batman and Robin (especially) leave something to be desired. The West sculpt just doesn't look well defined (fleshy and, dare I say it, jowly?), and R...

Re: New Hot Toys 66 Batman Variant

I have my Dynamic Duo posed with the Newmar Catwoman Maquette and they look damn fine together so having the car aint a big issue...I'd have to save up to pay for the thing anyway. Mr. Jimbits, would you be able to post some photos of your Hot Toys B&R with your Newmar maquette? I'm on the fence ab...

Re: Complete Series Blu Ray Cheap!

Wow! I held off on buying the BD set (the basic complete set) until only a few days ago, when I did as this thread suggested and ordered the Italian release - through Amazon UK. I paid £39.88, with the set being sold by an Italian company but 'fulfilled by Amazon UK' (i.e. the stock is stored in Ama...

Re: New Hot Toys 66 Batman Variant

There's been some suggestion that the coloring of this 'variant' might anticipate the forthcoming '66 Batman animated film - but I tend to think that's a tenuous justification at best.

Is anyone here tempted?

Re: collecting Batman 1966 merchandise

I have collected so many vintage items over the years, but when they announced the Hot Toys 1:6th scale Batman & Robin figures, I had to own the pair....and am ecstatic with them. They are a little pricey, but I think the quality is worth the $..... Yeah, I must agree. Aside from Chuck's cowl (and ...

Re: Hot Toys v NECA

It should also be noted that there have been consistent complaints about the build quality of the NECA figure - legs coming off, etc. Although the old 'hot water' method is cited as a way of 'fixing' some of these issues (i.e. softening the plastic to refit), it is a legitimate concern.

Re: NECA advice needed

That's ridiculous! I've heard many stories of this happening, so one must assume build quality is non-existent on this over-sized figure. Neca should be ashamed, as this figure retails for over $140 here in Australia. I'd be sending it back, myself.

Re: Batman TV series DVD set in 2014!!

I seriously doubt Adam and Burt recorded commentary for every episode which would have been roughly fifty hours, they seemed to be running out of things to say during the two hour feature. The selection of a well-informed moderator/host on the commentaries would certainly help prod West and Ward in...

Re: Quick fix for Hot toys Batman 66'.........

Oddly enough, I think changes to the original body make it appear less lifelike - i.e. more like an action figure, with the cliched chiseled torso/abs. I think Hot Toys were bang on the money for my tastes.

But, absolutely - whatever works for you. :)

Re: Why no Hot Toys Review??

Aussie Batfan, can I please ask if you ordered these HT figures? If so, from where? I only ask as I'm in Melbourne and was wondering where other Australian fans were ordering their copies from (I went through Popcultcha myself, which appeared to roundly offer the lowest price given my location).

Re: Why no Hot Toys Review??

HotChix review is up, with some excellent footage of the HT TrueType body and what has been added in order to 'beef up' the '66 Batman (great for those who will likely never remove the outfit, and are curious as to what lies beneath).
