Re: Diecast (Hot Wheels, Corgi, Matchbox, etc.) appreciation thread

Dude! For Pete’s sake! I’ve got empty pegs in central Texas! I’m off this week though, so time to hit the stores.
Excellent find on the 07! That’s when Hot Wheels finally started to put things right. ;)

Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

Just off the top of my head, these are shows I remember regularly watching in the 1960s. Most were just me, two were a family watch. Batman The Munsters Leave It To Beaver Star Trek Speed Racer Then Came Bronson Flipper Gomer Pyle The Carol Burnett Show Scooby Doo, Where Are You? I certainly remembe...

Re: Twilight actor may be next screen Batman

I can see him working out well. A good story, script, director, and design and we could have a much better version than we’ve had in decades. This isn’t any different than the blowback when Michael Keaton was cast as Batman or when Daniel Craig was cast as 007. They haven’t even shot a single frame ...

Re: 13 QUICK THOUGHTS on the Greatness of YVONNE CRAIG

Well put on all of them, and I particularly agree with #7 (and have posted about it in the past). The current comic book version of Batgirl is heavily influenced by Yvonne Craig’s version of the character.

Re: Triggering the Old Batmania Feelings

For me, the part of every show where they’re landing on the pads at the bottom of the batploles and then run to the Batmobile. The entire opening for sure, but this scene still has the same magic as it did 53 years ago.

Man, come on! I haven’t even found the Mystery Machine Batmobile yet. Oh well, I have a business trip to Houston next week. No shortage of stores there that have Hot Wheels. I feel pretty certain I’ll find a few there. Plus there’s the grey 2019 design to find also.

Re: Diecast (Hot Wheels, Corgi, Matchbox, etc.) appreciation thread

With all the beautiful Batmobiles posted on this diecast thread, I just took leave of my senses....I went out to eBay and bought a Corgi Juniors Batmobile! I look forward to a side by side comparison with the Hot Wheels 1:64 Batmobile. https://i.imgur.com/PyrwiDn.png That thing is fantastic! To me,...

Re: Top five retro Batman video games

Looks like they’re going for retro as in style of game vs style of Batman. Somewhat related; on the game Arkham Origins, you can pick how your Batman looks with regard to suit/comic book era/etc. One that you can chose is the 66 TV show version. There are several YouTube videos showing quite a bit o...

Re: New Mezco Figure

Add me to the list of people not digging it. However, it’s not because of the facial likeness (which is fine), it’s because I’m not a fan of any of that big-head style of figures. Maybe it’s just generational, but I grew up with regular action figures that were normal proportioned ; G.I. Joe, Big Ji...

Man, that looks way better in silver. Now I have two to hunt for. Went to a different store a few days ago and still nothing beyond the E case (I think).

Re: Diecast (Hot Wheels, Corgi, Matchbox, etc.) appreciation thread

Found another silver ‘66, but nothing else. Hot Wheels are slow to make it out to the Texas hill country. ;) I’ll leave this one in the package for a while in case anyone needs one. I’m guessing the F case with the Scooby Doo Batmobile must be on the way out here. I plan on buying every one I can ge...
