Re: Aurora Batman model question

So many of us have built a variant of the Aurora Batman model, whether it was a 1964, 1974 Comic Scenes or Revell or Polar Lights iterations My question are these: What color did you paint the shorts I had the Comic Scenes version, and used the comic/art as my painting inspiration. Took a good deal...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #122: Parade of Bat-Parodies

Good show, guys. I was familiar with the Jerry Lewis comic series only from the DC house ads in my family's 1960s comics, but never had a desire to read one--including the one with Batman and Robin as guest stars. Between the Lewis comic, Cracked and MAD , I see a pattern in their satires: breaking ...

Re: the serie how it should be

This just reminds me that it is such a shame this series has not been properly transferred and released on blu-ray.

Re: SDCC Exclusive Pop

Good that there's a bit more GH '66 merchandise out there, but I'm not into the Pop figures. My one figure wish is that Hot Toys would have produced 1:6 scale figures of the '66 Hornet and Kato. Yes, I remember the Enterbay Kato figure, but his height was incorrect (next to that one would assume are...

Nice. The head is a bit oversized, but its nice to see the '43 version as a 1:6 scale figure.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #121: Send Off the Clown (with Ken Holtzhouser!)

Once again, your show is better than the episode you're covering. Poor Jeff Burton. After seeing him in this mess, he was better off being chased by far future gorillas a month later. You know...Gotham City must be the most mismanaged, business-unfriendly city in the U.S. for all of the businesses t...

Re: Burt Ward On Set Crisis on Infinite Earths

Interesting. I would love to see his part in this, if I'm able to endure whichever milquetoast CW-DC show he appears on (Batwoman, I presume).

Re: Van Williams had a backdoor pilot for a Western show

I'm well aware that the series was heavily merchandised, what I said was that it didn't sell. The hope was that it would hit as big as Batman and we all know that didn't happen. According to Billie Rae Bates book, which has some excellent information on the GH series, William Dennis who was head of...

Re: Van Williams had a backdoor pilot for a Western show

I've read the opposite--that the series was heavily merchandised (which I know to be true), and that it was successful. In a related note, here's a passage from the book View-Master Memories (by Mary Ann & Wolfgang Sell): "The big talk going around at Toy Fair that year centered around one major cha...

Re: Van Williams had a backdoor pilot for a Western show

I was aware of Pursue and Destroy , and he was fortunate that it was never picked up as a series, as war dramas were starting to march their way out if popularity by the time this was produced (e.g., Combat! and Twelve O'Clock High ended in '67, Garrison's Gorillas in '68), so he would not have been...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #120: Can Superman solve "Batman's Great Mystery"?

I'm not sure how the radio stories hold up, but it was interesting to hear that version of Superman; he so much that larger than life figure of the Golden Age, and all thanks to Collyer's great delivery. The negative (annoying) portrayal of Robin seems to stem from the period's general perception of...
