Re: First Look - Battinson Revealed

Of you're still interested, looks like there's new photos of the full suit, and a batcycle: https://toynewsi.com/414-35693 Don't know if that's Pattinson or a stuntman, but he's rocking the chin! Also, no cape in this scene, but that could mean anything: (1) there's no cape to this suit, (2) he's th...

Re: NEW Hot Toys "COSBABY" 66 Batman Figures!!!

That's the first thing I thought of when I saw them.

Maybe if we wait long enough, they'll bring back the Kryptonite rock, too.

Re: How high was the Batpole drop in reality?

Great post! Switching gears... What would the real height need to be for a working batpole and how would it work? E.g. does the pole from the study go to a changing room with egress on a separate pole to the bat cave? If a single pole drop how is the wardrobe change perform while staying in contact...

Re: Bob Lowery Batman Costume Tweaked

Interesting. Given the story (urban legend?) that the '66 show was at least partially inspired by showings of the old serials at the Playboy Mansion, could it be that Adam's logo was intentionally placed too low to make it look more comical? The real problem with the cowl is that it seems made for a...

Re: NEW Hot Toys "COSBABY" 66 Batman Figures!!!

I agree, it's times like this I start feeling guilty about how much plastic the developed world generates, most of it destined for a landfill sooner than later.

Re: First Look - Battinson Revealed

Well I was realistic enough not to expect whited-out eyes for the cowl. And anything was better than the mirrored lenses they gave Spidey on TV. I was also used to certain liberties being taken, and let them slide. As a kid, I was much more into Superman than Batman, and George Reeves had a cape tha...

Re: First Look - Battinson Revealed

Where movies are concerned, Spider-Man says hello. In less than 20 years, there were/are three series/franchises: the 3 Sam Raimi movies, the 2 Garfield movies, and so far, two Sony/MCU movies with another in pre-production plus an appearance (allegedly) in the Captain Marvel sequel. Even Batman ha...

Re: First Look - Battinson Revealed

Meh, another suit of body armor. I like what I can see of the mask better than the last couple, and Pattinson has a great jawline for the part, but at this stage of the game, the absolute last character I want to see more of on screen is Batman. By now, he's easily the most over-exposed and least in...

Re: Batman enamel pins, Bradford exchange

There are numerous folks on Etsy selling pins that, for my money, look every bit as good as these for $10 each, or less. I've got this one on my backpack right now: https://www.etsy.com/listing/518445785/westside-batman-pin-adam-west-enamel-pin?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=...

Re: Anyone Remember Dark Shadows' Willie Loomis?

Poor old, long-suffering Willie, the "Renfield" to Barnabas' "Dracula." Next to Chekov on "Star Trek," probably the most constantly terrified character on 60s TV. I'm always amazed at what the talented cast and crew of "Dark Shadows" accomplished with roughly the budget of one of Spanky and Alfalfa'...

Re: GI Joe 12" figures

The Adventure Team was not a military based group, but certainly paramilitary. In 1968, the negative feelings about war, namely Viet Nam, started sinking the sales of the military toys, so Hasbro moved away from that image with the Adventure Team. However, the Adventure Team figures were still in 3...

Re: RIO: Lost 1961 Adam West Pilot!

Resurrecting this old thread as the "Rio" pilot is now on YouTube. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mMGdTBxAqfk Adam is paired with James Best, both impossibly young and handsome. Looks like it was designed as a "buddy adventure" show in the mood of "Route 66" or " The Persuaders. " With two charming l...
