I love TV from the sixties! I can’t really put my finger on it, but something about the shows from that era just make me so happy!
Try no political correctness. Fun and enjoyment actually were still allowed.

Re: Adam West High School Family Guy Adam West Tribute

John, I suppose it's a bit of a tribute renaming the school after Adam, but it seems more like a dig at James Woods than anything else. Than again, what do I know? I haven't watched Family Guy since season 2 when they decided to go the vulgarity route instead of comedy. As an aside, my brother worke...

Triggering the Old Batmania Feelings

As adults we get jaded after having 'been around the block' - so to speak - many times and discovering there's nothing new under the sun. My question is - does anyone else find sometimes they suddenly and unexpectedly feel that old jolt of excitement they had as a kid either seeing something in the ...

Re: NEW 2019 HALLMARK BATMAN ORNAMENTS!!!

So this takes care of the vehicles and the Bat characters, but am I right in saying they still have to do a Burgess Meredith Penguin? Next should be False-Face as there's hardly anything available of him. Oh yeah, I guess they could also issue a batarang and the bat-shield as well.

Re: Twilight actor may be next screen Batman

Kamden, I agree. Batman has gone completely off the rails - comics, movies, you name it. As much as I enjoyed them, I have to say it all started with the Burton films as Tim Burton was allowed way too much leeway in changing the character to what HE WANTED. All the interviews back then showed a real...

Szabol,

I had no idea the figures for the Corgi Jr.s would fit in the small Hot Wheels scale. This is very interesting.

Re: 1977 Batman Wrist Shooting Grappling Hook Toy

Man, I love all the old comic ads and all the cheapie toys we used to get at the 5 and dime store or the occasional find in the grocery or drug store toy section. I would have been over the moon back then to have found some of these Bat-items. I think as a kid cheapness didn't matter, only as long a...

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

Szabol, Great find. I have an original 1st issue Corgi Batmobile, Batboat, and trailer. I also have boxes for them but they are repros. My Batmobile is in great shape except the wheel springs are shot so it has no suspension and rides real low. I'm undecided whether to repair it or leave it in origi...

Re: Twilight actor may be next screen Batman

Gothosmansion, I think everybody here knows I am "that guy" when it comes to DC Comics and Warners nowadays. I gotta say this one really takes the cake. Why even bother paying for their current shows and movies when it seems their business decisions are free entertainment now? When I read the announ...

Re: Remembering a old friend of the Bat Board ~ Petey

Space Ghost, My condolences on Petey's passing. As a fellow dog owner and dog lover I know well how our four-legged furry friends leave their paw prints all over our hearts for the rest of our lives and making it that much harder when the time comes. Enjoy the memories and remember - of all the peop...

Re: New Mezco Figure

While I was reading that article I couldn't help but notice that there will be a One:12 Collective '89 batman!!! I know it may be treason on this board but the 1989 movie is probably my favorite of all the film appearances! The Batphone, I don't see any treason. The Michael Keaton Batman is my 2nd ...

Re: New Mezco Figure

Add me to the list of people not digging it. However, it’s not because of the facial likeness (which is fine), it’s because I’m not a fan of any of that big-head style of figures. Maybe it’s just generational, but I grew up with regular action figures that were normal proportioned ; G.I. Joe, Big J...

Funny thing is I believe, if I recall correctly, that was supposed to be the actual original Batman ornament release a couple years ago that ...

Re: NEW 2019 HALLMARK BATMAN ORNAMENTS!!!

Went to my local Hallmark this past Saturday to make my reservation orders for all three. The store staff had no idea what I was talking about which apparently made me the first one to order them. I wrote down on their reserve list '1966 Batgirl ornament', etc. When I got home there was a message fr...

Re: RIP Seymour Cassell aka "Cancelled"

I remember Seymour well and really enjoyed his work. I have to say that first picture of his older self at the link was incredible. If you just add a pair of glasses he would've been the quintessential Commissioner James Gordon from the comics. :shock: Tim Burton originally should've hired him inste...
