Will Paoletto of ThisBlogRules gave me a chance to stretch my imaginative wings and write about something other than toys for once. What I wrote was an attempt to unify all the policeman roles of Reginald “Sgt. Al Powell from Die Hard and Carl Winslow from Family Matters” VelJohnson into one (fairly) cohesive story. The [...]
It been a while since we last featured some cool Vintage BATMAN Toys on the BAT-BLOG.COM. So, Here We GO! The general theme is "Toy Collector Reference Photos" of cool Bat-items from the 1960's. This has always been a favorite era of toy collecting for me. With the popularity of the 1966 TV Show they really went crazy with the merchandising and today there's a TON of great items to try and hunt down!
The 1st photo is an extremely RARE Batman Bobblehead Nodder that was made in Japan. Now, some people might say it's kinda ugly but that's a huge part of it's charm, the "cheesy factor", ha!
Next up is a fun toy that I used to totally love, a 1966 BATMAN Magic Slate. Today I remember these from my childhood and they were super exciting, for about 10 minutes. But I've always loved the graphics on these things. I'm showing 2 different ones here so you can see what I mean. Plus, they're also great for display because they hang on the wall so easily.
Now we come to the 4th picture and it's so beautiful!! Here's a '66 BATMAN Flashlight on it's original Blister Card. Just the toy itself is pretty cool but those awesome graphics on the packaging would have caught my eye as a little kid in 2 seconds, very cool!
Speaking of cool graphics, the last item shown here is this Arts and Crafts Toy made by Hasbro called "RUB-ONS". This one was themed with the Dynamic Duo and had rub-transfer decals you could add to a page to make fun artwork.
A Little Bit On The Street Fighter’s Wrath Side:Here’s a screenshot of Asura from Asura’s Wrath in Street Fighter. And check out how his COMBO gauge has been turned into a BURST gauge. No word on when we’ll be able to play as the demigod, but Capcom promises more details soon.
The new Creative Cakes set from LEGO DUPLO lets pre-school children make a variety of tasty-looking treats.
Hillside, N.J. & CARY, N.C.—February 16, 2012—Developers of HeroClix Online, a digital transliteration of the popular combat-oriented tabletop game, today announced the addition of two all-new DC Comics sets, Green Lantern Gravity Feed and Green Lantern Fast Forces. The new characters add a total of 16 figures with varying stats and powers to the game [...]
Sharing something that’s already been on Design*Sponge may be a little redundant, since it’s read by so many people. But to heck with it, these sculpture by Ruggero Asnagho are just too perfect for this blog. Don’t you agree?

Minivan* & Airport Security Guard was actually listed twice on the 2-pack list which was a little odd … but by itself, hard to discern any greater meaning from it other than a mistake. But it was odd in that so far in CARS 2, each 2-pack/Movie Moment contained one common car released or merely [...]
Just a friendly reminder that Transformers Prime will return tonight on The Hub at 8:30PM EST/5:30PM PST! Orion Pax Part 1, the first in a three-parter, picks up with where Season 1 left off: with Unicron defeated by Optimus Prime's Matrix, his memory is now lost, reverting to his Orion Pax days, and Megatron takes full advantage. Let us know what you think of the episode in the comments! Get yourself pumped with one or two clips!
First, we wanted to thank everyone who attended and participated in Toypocalypse 2: Futuretro. Those of you who were able to submit a custom Outer Space Men figure – we couldn’t be more grateful to you. Thank you SO much! We think the show was a tremendous success and we had a blast doing it. [...]

All of Thames & Kosmos science kits engage kids with hands-on science experiments. The new kits teach things from growing crystals and how generators work to eco-friendly batteries and theRead More
Figure of the Day has returned as a contest sponsor to TVFT, and I have to say I couldn’t be happier to bring everybody a chance to win a really great set of GI Joe figures. The theme of this set is Cobra. Packed with some favorite army builders and a couple of updates to [...]
Well, yet another Toy Fair has come and gone and, despite all my (misplaced?) hopes and anticipation it was antoher ho-hum showing at the biggest event in the toy industry. Now, to be fair I need be mindful of the fact that the American International Toy Fair is for the entirety of the toy industry, [...]
Alison Perez's adorable Zukies are going places, like into bottles and bakeries (where else would they get such adorable little cupcakes?). The "Zukie World in a Bottle" figures place a lilliputian Zukie in a bottle with a chain, allowing the owner to carry the Zukie around with them for good luck. Each bottle comes with a scroll that contains a drawing depicting what the contained Zukie is thinking (the creatures express feeling by their skin color, facial features, and thought bubbles). The edition size for Zukie World in a Bottle series is 15 pieces and one lucky owner's bottle will also have gold confetti in it, declaring that they are entitled to a painting by Alison. They are on sale now from Alison's online shop for the price of US$20 a piece.
The "Zukies, Cup Cakes, 'n Ice Cream" series, similar to "Zukie Valentine" series, has Zukies set up in plexiglass terrarium-like cases filled with hobby grass. This time, the creatures are carrying sweets with them and it looks like they are willing to share! Each piece is signed by Alison. They are available now for US$60 each in her online shop.
Another recent project that Alison completed were the "Tiny Zukies." They are, sadly, all sold out. For US$8, you could purchase a box of 4 tiny Zukies. It was a really good deal, considering they were one of a kind. No wonder they sold out so fast!
PodgyPanda shared with everyone VIA Instagram an upcoming collaborative project with fellow UK artist Crisr. What they have up their sleeves? Who many know, but we cannot wait to see and hear!
