Batman 1997 80th Anniversary Pop! Vinyl Figure
Oh god! A balloon head of bobble head George Clooney's Disco Batman. Where did they draw up the courage?

Keith, it's an impressive collection. I love checking out other Bat-fans' collections.

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

Nice haul, Keith. I especially like the Batgirl art. Looking at it makes me pose a question to you and everyone else. She started out in the comics with a black outfit (as we see in this introductory image) and then later moved to a grey one. What's your preference? I, myself, prefer the later grey ...

I'll second this.

Re: Superman: The Movie Anniversary This Sunday 12/15/19

I remember seeing it in 1978 like it was only last week. The theater was sold out and the audience sat in silence with extreme curiosity watching the opening historical comic narrative. Then, cheering and applause as the opening rumbling notes, like a countdown to detonation, built the anticipation ...

Re: CW Crisis Event

Funny how DC Comics and their TV "shows" are always a one-trick pony with that overused buzz word 'Crisis' that they've beat to death since the '80s. Anything and everything is always a crisis with them except for the real one when DiDio & Co. took over. In any event, the CW is nothing...

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.

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...

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:/...

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?
