The following information, down below, was translated from the original Spanish Language Website using "Google Translate", so it's kinda wonky! But it does give us all a very good idea about the event. It looks like the Mexican Museum of Design is having a special BATMAN Exhibit. Oh man, that's so cool!
A special THANK YOU goes out to our good friend Carlos for giving us the heads-up!
TWITTERHEAD recently photographed Michelle Pfeiffer's Original CATWOMAN Costume for one of their next BATMAN Statue Maquettes. Their attention to detail is insane so we can't wait to see this new product, MEOW!
Stay tuned to the BAT-BLOG, because as soon as we have some pics, you're probably gonna cry!
Killer Tentacle Octopus (Kaity O'Shea) and Camilla d'Errico's Kickstarter for their wearable Tentacle Crown launched recently and has already garnered the US$10,000 needed to fund the campaign. The accessory had previously only been made in handmade, polymer clay batches but artists can now create molds. This will allow the Tentacle Crowns to be mass produced in resin. The resulting items will cost less and be higher quality. Sounds like a win, right?
The Tentacle Crown traditionally comes in opaque pearlescent aqua but if you back the Kickstarter, you can opt for three additional colors: pearlescent white, soft pearlescent pink, and semi translucent aqua pearl (as seen in the header). DIYers will be happy to hear that off-white and beige Tentacle Crowns are also available.
Backer rewards range from the Tentacle Crown itself to Killer Tentacle Octopus jewelry to art prints. The campaign still has 19 days to go so there is plenty of time to get in on the action!
Last week, HISTORICS AT BROOKLANDS in Weybridge, Surrey (UK), offered the original 1966 BATMAN MOVIE BAT-BOAT in an eBay auction. If I read their ad page correctly, I don't think it met the minimum bid.
For more information, and to purchase this vehicle as a special birthday gift to me (January 19th) , please visit their page by clicking RIGHT HERE!
Also, here is how their eBay description read:
The first appearance of the Batboat was in the 1966 Batman film, subsequently used in seasons two and three of the 1960's television series, the Batboat created by Glastron Industries was designed by Mel Whitley and Robert Hammond from a Glastron V-174. Whitley and Hammond added a red flashing beacon, glowing eyes, 'Bazooka' hatches, seats for both Batman and Robin at the front of the boat, twin wind screens, a center console, an outdrive jet cover and an aft deck cover with a glowing Bat-Signal on the tail fin. Although the boat was powered by a Mer-Cruiser L-6 stern drive, a water squirter and a jet nozzle were added to make the Batboat look like it was 'nuclear-powered'. When the Batman television show was eventually cancelled, Glastron used the two Batboats for promotions and after much touring, the boats were sold.
This 1966, Glastron Batboat came to England a few years ago from America and has been displayed at many events since. Not only fully working and sea-worthy, this 17 ft 10 inch boat with a beam of 74 inches is in excellent condition throughout with all original running gear. The engine is as you would have found in the original film, a Mer-Cruiser Z-Leg and runs impeccably. Complete with red flashing light and Bat accessories, this is the ultimate machine for any collector. This tribute to the original Batboat is by far one of the finest executed examples to be seen on these shores and certainly the best to be made available on the open market. Viewing will be busy and so we would strongly suggest all parties that are interested to make their arrangements with us at their earliest convenience.

At the end of Wreck-It Ralph, "retro" was defined as "old but cool." In the case of COSPA's new Megadrive plush, I would substitute "cool" with "absolutely, freaking adorable." I mean, look at this thing! It's arms are controllers. It's right leg is the power cable. There is just so much detail! And it looks like the plush is a good size, too, measuring 21 centimeters by 23 centimeters (not counting its arms). You can also get a feel for the proportions from the second image in the gallery.
This is the second toy based on the Megadrive that I've seen this year (the first being Takara Tomy's specially-themed Megatron). It seems the plucky system has some life in it yet!
COSPA's Megadrive plush is available to pre-order now for ¥4,860. It is scheduled to ship late November 2014.
