Re: The forgotten 1994 Batsuit from DC's "Troika"

SprangFan, Holy Automotive Dentistry! You're right. The grill and headlights do look like Speed Buggy. This makes Jones' take on Batman more of a joke. As for 'Team Batman' in the comics it's team everything now. In comics, superhero TV shows (the absolutely horrid CW) and movies, even regular shows...

Re: Happy Thanksgiving - '66 Batman Style!

Happy Thanksgiving to all. I'm in Canada and always celebrate every November. Turkey's in the oven as we speak and the wife's busy with stuffing, side dishes, and has made a great homemade pumpkin pie. Also just got finished watching the Thanksgiving Day parade from downtown Detroit on TV. What a gr...

Re: The forgotten 1994 Batsuit from DC's "Troika"

That was one god-awful look they tried to push on him. Looking from then to now that didn't stop DC at all in their quest to warp Batman (and the others), did it? For me, asides from the first part of the Knightfall saga (the second half was pure garbage) and the No Man's Land series, I didn't get i...

Re: Batman Stuff You'd Hate To Part With...

I would hate to part with anything in my collection as I've worked so hard to build it (somewhere over 2,000 items now). That said, I do miss some things I had when I was younger like my original 1st-issue MEGO Batman figure with removable cowl. I remember how over the moon I was when first walking ...

Re: GI Joe 12" figures

I remember MAD Magazine doing hysterical parody ads for G.I. Joe and the Barbie line. It was from 1969 so be advised it can be construed as politically incorrect.

Re: death of my youtube BAT VIDEOS

Sorry to hear about that but then again, YT is owned by Google and, for those well-informed that's all one needs to know. Once upon a time I used to really enjoy the internet. :roll:

Re: GI Joe 12" figures

I loved everything - the figures, the vehicles, the playsets, the accessories, the whole nine yards. I remember really wanting the Adventure Team Headquarters with the flashing spotlight or the desert set with the Egyptian cobra. Looking back at the G.I. Joe of the '60s and '70s, this figure was Joh...

Re: GI Joe 12" figures

Keith, That collection is phenomenal - especially the Mini-Me. I fondly remember the Joes, especially the commercials advertising "G.I. Joe now with the kung fu grip!" I remember how excited I was with this commercial thinking the guys at the beginning were the real life G.I. Joes. https://www.youtu...

Re: VIDEO: The future of The Culver Studios

Lex Luthor is buying this historical site for his "studios"? :roll: I wish Amazon would just stick to selling books, CDs, and DVDs, but as Aldous Huxley once said - "It's A Brave New World." Or was that he predicted?

What scale is the bat boat?
Greatlakes6, for what it's worth, the detail is excellent and I say that as a huge fan of the '66 Batboat.

Re: NEW 2019 HALLMARK BATMAN ORNAMENTS!!!

Snagged Batgirl, the Batboat & the Bat Guitar. Batgirl is limited, but I am a Gold member and my store had her set aside for me. :) SVL, I'm the same at my store and did the same. Picked them up the weekend before last. I passed on the Lego Robin as I never liked that version with the goofy goggles...

Re: Looks Like Shazam! is Coming to Blu-Ray!

I checked Spider-Jazz on Amazon. Unfortunately, it is only available on vinyl. I'd prefer a CD release of it along with all else I previously mentioned.

Re: A familiar pattern caught my eye...

I gotta say the beach lady worked that pattern waaaay better than Adam, especially the second picture of her with JFK's lookalike. Just my two cents, though. :lol:
