Re: New Mezco Figure

SprangFan, Once again you read my mind. I was about to point out the caricature-like quality but you beat me to it. I also find that Adam's expression is kind of goofy like someone is holding out a big slice of chocolate cake or something that he can't wait to devour. I don't find the expression mat...

Re: New Mezco Figure

Just as a point of inquiry I have to ask what is the obsession of these toy companies over the last number of years with the cutesy, oversized balloon heads on the figures?

Re: Unusual Batgirl Picture.

It looks very closely like Yvonne but I don't believe it's her. The nose is slightly different and the eyes look a little bigger. In the Yvonne photos you can see a slight cleft in her chin so it's too bad the Batgirl's gloved hand is just blocking that very place or it would be a piece of cake to d...

Re: Bill Finger - RIP

It's really a travesty in so many ways that Mr. Finger never got the appreciation and recognition he really deserved - and still does. :cry:

Re: Batman 80th Anniversary Merchandise Coming Soon

Re: Jada 1/18 Batmobile

Is there a video somewhere showing the lights and sound? Greatlakes6, here you go. There is no sound but I also think the flashing siren description is mistaken for the red flasher on the roll bar. The Batmobile had no siren that I know of - only the Bat-Parachute Emergency Pick-Up van (or whatever...

Re: Show Your Green Hornet Collection

All these GH collection photos are great! I only have the Corgi Black Beauty which is something I always wanted since I was kid to go with my Corgi Batmobile and Batboat. Now I have both. Interesting to see Van was a member of the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. He's sort of in the same ranks of Bobby S...

Re: I'm glad that Julie didn't do the movie

I agree it would have been different if Julie would have played in the movie. As a replacement Lee knocked it straight out of the park. Then again, as discussed in the Penguin thread wondering about Gleason and Meredith it becomes a question of apples and oranges as every actor has their strengths a...

Re: ADVANCE REVIEW: Dig Diamond’s Burt Ward DICK GRAYSON Bust

I'd pick it up but then I'd have to get the Farrah and Jackie Smith ones too. Totally Kate Jackson. I've never seen or heard of Square Pegs but I see Kate Jackson all over this. Andy, how dare you write this when I'm sipping a hot black coffee! YOWCH! (in full '66 image graphic). :lol: Sprang Fan, ...

Re: 25 yrs ago this month : Cesar RIP

Every year I get reminded of this and every year it hurts. His Joker is my all-time favorite Batman villain from all across the spectrum of Batman TV and film arch-criminals. Every time I read a Batman comic with Joker I always hear Cesar's voice. To me he was just that iconic and, in terms of a tru...

Re: ADVANCE REVIEW: Dig Diamond’s Burt Ward DICK GRAYSON Bust

I'm getting more of a short-haired Kate Jackson vibe but we're on the same wavelength, SprangFan. It's weird because in the concept drawing the likeness to Burt is dead-on and then the sculpt goes right off the rail. Anyways, I have almost the entire Diamond bust line but have passed on the Adam and...

Re: POLL: Does The Siren have a superpower?

I remember a singer named Minnie Ripperton in the '70s She had a four octave ed range and when she hit high notes I thought glass was going to shatter. I think a seven octave range is super normal and represents some sort of X Men like mutation. I liked Eddie Murphy and Dave Chappelle's version of ...

Re: 53rd Anniversay Plans?

Keith,

I actually didn't realize it was approaching until you mentioned it. I think I'll watch the premier Catwoman episode again in honor of Chuck's recent wicked find.

Chuck, great find! Take real good care of it lest Mark Andrews finds out. ;)
