Though I don’t want to push Fall out the door (especially knowing how long our winters are around here), I’m waiting rather impatiently for cooler weather because I’m just dying to get out my big cozy winter sweaters. It’s kind of like these adorable Sock Animals from the Remakerie. Whether it’s a SockRabbit or a [...]
I’ve watched three episodes of the Nickelodeon’s new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles now, and I’ve made a few observations. –The show is geared toward a younger audience – definitely younger than the 2003 series, at least, though probably about on par with the 1980s cartoon. More on that in a moment. –There’s something both modern and very [...]
“For the quarter ended Sept. 30, the El Segundo retailer posted a profit of $365.9 million, or $1.04 a share, up nearly 22% from $300.8 million, or 86 cents a share, in the same period a year ago. Sales also rose 4% to $2.08 billion. The results beat analyst expectations. At Mattel, American Girls sales [...]
Yes, I used the word, "Extravaganza!", in the title, ha ha! Actually today is "Wacky Wallpaper Wednesday". It's a tradition I started a long time ago because I enjoy making BATMAN Wallpaper Backgrounds but, over the years, it has become way more difficult. Why? Because now there are hundreds of different screen-size resolutions and it's way harder to please everybody. See, a few years ago almost everyone that read this site all, pretty much, had the same size. So, I decided to bring it back today and I'm using 1440 X 900 as the main size because that pleases most people. But, for the few that can't use them, I'm sorry.
Anyways, the first one is sort of a Tribute to 1960's Batman Merchandise and the 2nd Bat-Background uses some cool Fan Art showing a more modern-day version. Oh yeah, last minute I decided to throw-in the one with the stitched mouth. That's the cover to a very recent comic book. Enjoy!
I started to notice a small trend of "Batmobile Batman Car" photos in my special Bat-Folder so that became the idea for this post. Actually, these pics are very cool and a lot of fun so I think it might work, ha! Plus, these pics were all submitted by Bat-Blog Fans so that makes them even more special for me.
The 1st pic is an amazing Store Display created at some store to help sell more Halloween Candy. It kinda looks like the one from the 1989 BATMAN Movie with Michael Keaton, very AWESOME!!
Next up is a Customized Smart Car ( or is that a Golf Cart??? Ha Ha! ). It looks great either way. I love the Bat-Fins, ha!
Then, here's a Vintage Photo (screenshot) from a day of shooting Adam West during the 1960's BATMAN Film. The famous scene where, "Someday you just can't get rid of a bomb", was filmed on Stern's Wharf in Santa Barbara, CA. In fact, I just visited that location a few days ago on a wacky vacation to Cali for a week. The weird thing is that they do not mention this fact in their brochures. Not sure why. It's weird, you think they would capitalize on that.

Here at the BAT-BLOG.COM we try to keep up to date & report on all the brand-new Batman Merchandise. Sometimes it's pretty easy because the Toy Companies don't release much stuff during certain periods of the year. Then, it seems like everyone is putting out some crazy new product and it's very very difficult, ha ha! But either way we love collecting Bat-Toys and here's a small sample of an item to keep an eye out for in the near future. ( Thanks for the pic Jo$Rulez )
Here is the 2nd "Batman Bat-Cycle" to be a part of the "Hot Wheels Motorcycles" 2012 Series by Mattel ( 1/64th Scale ). Actually, it's the BAT-POD from the recent movies. The previous Bat-Cycle ( #1 ) was a very cool Retro-Style "Comic Book" Version. You can see that, by clicking right HERE!

I’ve noticed that the prices at the two TRUs near me – one just about twenty miles from the other – have quite different prices, at least for collector figures. For example, the Evil Dead II Henrietta figure is $18.99 at one TRU, and $15.99 at another. Three bucks is a pretty significant difference in terms [...]
