Re: Fiberglass Freaks 15 Year Anniversary Mini-Con

I have more great news about our Batcon on September 22nd and 23rd--the Marymax Theater in Logansport, Indiana, has agreed to screen the "Batman vs. Two Face" animated movie at 8:30PM Saturday, the 22nd. The best part? It's free! It will be great to see it on the big screen.

Ridiculous Rides, Featuring Fiberglass Freaks!

"Ridiculous Rides" did a show on our 1966 Batmobile replicas. The video was from several years ago (from another Barcroft Media project) and is a bit dated, but I hope you still enjoy it:

It is, John. This is the car we rebuilt after the wreck (then completely replaced every single interior and exterior component!).

Re: Ride In The Original Batcopter

John,

When Eugene repainted/replaced the tanks (I can't remember which), he purchased the only stickers that were available for purchase at the time, which were--unfortunately--not the screen-accurate bat logos. We'll chat at our convention in September. I'll see what I can do for him. :)

Catwoman Costume Lending?

Troy, Chris, and I are planning to have some costumed mannequins at our Fifteen Year Anniversary Comic Con on September 22nd and 23rd, but we don't have a Catwoman or Batgirl costume. Is there any chance that we could borrow one or the other or both for our convention? I will gladly pay for shipping...

Re: Did the '66 movie need an A-list star?

Keith, everyone repeats that the Batman movie was supposed to come before the series, but I don't think it was ever verified that it was going into production, or that the script was even written. There are others that know the production history like the back of their hands, so hopefully they will ...

Re: Did the '66 movie need an A-list star?

Interesting topic. It was my understanding that the movie served as a pilot to sell the TV show overseas. Others will know the timing better than me to know if this is correct, or just another rumor. For me, it's all in the writing. I thought the story concept was far better than the final script. T...
