The legendary, Eisner Award-winning series BATMAN BLACK AND WHITE returns in a brand-new six-issue miniseries featuring tales of The Dark Knight by some of comics' greatest writers and artists! This first issue kicks off with stories by Chip Kidd and Michael Cho, Neal Adams, Joe Quinones and Maris Wicks, John Arcudi and Sean Murphy, and Howard Mackie and Chris Samnee!
Here's a quick post to share this extremely super-awesome, extremely cool, photo of our best bat-buddy, Desmond! He recently made a very dynamic appearance at the latest 2013 Denver Comic Con and we wanted to show-off this photo showing him in all of his BATMAN glory... POW!!
POW! BAMM! ZAPP! Fans of the Classic 1966 BATMAN TV Series is gonna totally love this news! The animated TV Cartoon Series, FUTURAMA, has plans to feature the voices of Adam West and Burt Ward in a future episode.
The cool thing also is that they will sort of appear as their "TV Batman characters". Well, I say "sort of" because they will appear as those "head-in-jar" characters, except they will each be given new bodies:
Adam has the body of an actual BAT, and Burt will get a new "Robin-inspired" Robot Body!!
We're not sure of an exact release date yet, but please stay tuned to the Bat-Blog for future news.
We reported awhile back here at the BAT-BLOG.COM about Sonic Drive-In Restaurants having a special Kid's Meal promotion going on right now where they have "Justice league Tater Tots" Toys (Series 2). They are very small plush toys in the shape of a few favorite DC Comics' Superheroes and Villains. If you missed that post, then CLICK HERE!
Anyways, THIS post is to share a new photo we just got from a good friend named Leslie. She found out that they also have a special toy for younger kids that is also Batman-related, it's the BATARANG FLYER!!
So, a special thanks goes out to Leslie for the heads-up on this and the great pic too - Thank you!!
Hope you’re keeping track of all the great stuff that’ll be happening at Supah Pop-Up tomorrow! Join us at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland for an evening filled with live art, a book signing, and much more! By now, you already know … Continue reading →
Funko has done a little redesign of some of their upcoming Disney Pop! Plushies. There's Snow White, The Queen, Woody, Buzz, Tinkerbell, Ariel, Cinderella, and Belle. Look for these to be released on July 3rd 2013.
It seems like ever since Nisemonogatari, Japan's had some fetish for toothbrushing. It may have appeared before then, but ever since that series, it seems like the "kink" is everywhere. It was only a matter of time before it appeared in the PVC world, and "thanks" to Broccoli the representation falls upon our dear Sonico.
I'll be blunt, I kind of hate Broccoli for this figure. The toothbrushing thing is weird in general, but I kind of hate them for the over-expansion of her bust. Sure, Sonico's never exactly been petite, but at least she usually stayed in the realm of curvy-yet-believable. This, honestly, it just draws away from every other positive aspect of the figure.
It's a shame too, since as weird as it is, it's not a bad figure otherwise. Her hair is very pretty when you realize you can remove the oddly placed towel, and the underwear has an undeniably cute design. Even the overall feel of the figure is unique, if nothing else. But then, you've got that ridiculous bust. I don't know if I can reconcile with it, but if you're not so put-out, get ready to pick her up in November for ¥8,572.
Do you want to have a closer look at the packaging art for Hasbro's upcoming Marvel Universe Captain America and Mysterio action figures? We thought so. Click the thumbnails above and your dreams will come true... assuming your dreams are to see high resolution images of these figures.
Star Trek into Darkness: Conspiracy Theory Edition
Haters gonna hate. Star Trek into Darkness was awesome. But something was quite unsettling…
The movie opens on a planet called Nibiru. Any conspiracy theorist worth his weight knows Nibiru is another name for Nemesis. Which is another name for Planet X, the rogue planet that some say is out of view from us here on Earth but will crash into the planet eventually.
Why would they name the planet Nibiru? Well, there was a movie called Star Trek: Nemesis (2002). It all comes together. Clearly, J.J. Abrams is Illuminati. You can’t fool me, lizard man.

TUCKED in a quiet nook in Lebuh Acheh, George Town, is an intriguing vintage toy museum with over 10,000 toys. Run by a father and son team, Ben’s Vintage Toy Museum carries vintage toys from as early as the 1800s up to 1995.
This is not a story spoiler, but plenty of "scene-spoilers", showing more of the recent clips, adding to the diminishing wonders one might have viewing them for the first time in a darkened cinema. BUt i realize I cannot not post these, as it's my "job" in the first place - and by that I do not mean the toys, but of the geekery I aim to share with folks everywhere everywhen … Enjoy "Man of Steel" when it premieres, folks!

The RAMPAGE x KONATSU show opens June 14th-20th at RAMPAGE STUDIOS in Japan. Known for her design of Negoras, Konatsu lends her creations to the deft paintery-skills of RAMPAGE TOYS and the result looks to be quite a glorious rainbow hued meow of wee kitties!

Where are people most unfaithful? Who uses sex toys? On a darker level, where is child rape more prevalent? French geographers have tried to answer these questions and others in a global atlas on sexuality.
Munky King announces their project with Doktor A, with the reveal of this sculpt of the figure set named "Mr. Pumfrey and His Astounding Mechanized Perambulator".
Positively oozing steampunked-goodness, and geared to the hilt, the operator in the skull cavity of another robot-creation reminds me of his collaborative piece with Chet Zar for Oddfellows - which is an awesome happenstance, IMHO! Expect the first colorway to be released at San Diego ComicCon in July.
Rotofugi’s latest Roto-a-Matic Helper Dragon by Tim Biskup is available now in Black! Rotofugi also mentions this may be the last release to come out for some time. You can find this release HERE for the incredible price of only $6.
Munky King has just posted a photo of what looks to be an amazing release for SDCC. They are working alongside Doktor A. to produce the ."Mr. Pumphrey and His Mechanized Perambulator figure. The first colorway is set to drop during SDCC. It looks like there is so much going...
While we’ve had some planes or flight capable characters “CARS” previously – some were hard to define if they were accurate if they were the right scale since they were in the air (Rescue Squad Chopper) with nothing to really compare it to … or simply a “generic” flying craft that could be the correct [...]
