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...

Re: Big News for Burger Fans!

Invariably, when I use the drive=thru there's a delay in getting my food. They always say, "Sorry about your wait!" as they hand the bag to me. I put on my old Drill Instructor voice and say, "ALRIGHT! FIRST YOU TAKE ALL DAY, AND NOW YOU'RE MAKING FAT JOKES?!?!?!?!?". Some get it and laugh. Some ju...

Re: The Ultimate Guide TO Batman

Despite the fact it has Batfleck's Charcoal Briquette-Man as the cover's mainstay I'll pick it up for Adam and the other Batmen.

Re: Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle Returns

Can't say the fact it won't do wheelies disappoints me as I don't see myself revving it up on the floor and letting it rip like I once did so long ago. I just want it for nostalgia and collection display purposes.

Re: Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle Returns

I'm definitely there for this! Back in Christmas of '74 the two greatest gifts I ever received were both the stunt cycle and the scramble van. Now they're both lost to time and I have a chance to get back one item. Too bad the original iconic box art isn't being used as well but that's no big deal. ...

Adam's Batman in Battle of the Pop Culture TV Heroes

I don't believe this was posted before. A friend sent this to me and I thought it was kind of cool, right down to the ad on the ring skirting. This is a great, somewhat goofy and fun trip down '60s and '70s memory lane. 8-)

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...

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: 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...
