Metal Gear Rising Shirts From UNIQLO
Popular Japanese clothing retailer UNIQLO are launching a Metal Gear Rising line on February 18th to celebrate the release of the game. These shirts are awesome. I love gaming shirts that are really nicely done.
UNIQLO has previously done other really great Metal Gear Solid related clothing. However with their only US shop being in New York City and with many of their MGS shirts hard to find online, you may have a bit of trouble getting one. However, if the rumors are true, a UNIQLO store will soon be opening in Philly.

Check out this fun photo that was kindly sent in by a Bat-Blog Fan named Rodrigo. He lives all the way in Argentina, which is very cool. But another great thing is that he wanted to share this wonderful photo of his new JOKER TATTOO ART he recently had done...WOW! This thing is HUGE and also has great coloring with wonderful shading, very nice. Dang, this thing is BIG...you know that had to hurt, ha! ( Thanks Rodrigo! )
Hey, if anyone else gets some bat-ink done then please feel free to send us a photo anytime. Our email button is always on the top right-hand side of this page.

This little adorable princess has grabbed the hearts of little girls everywhere, as wellRead More
Late last night I couldn't sleep and decided to watch "BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, Part 2" again. Now, this is only the 2nd time I have viewed it and the 1st time I pretty much watched it just to enjoy the story. ( It's a seriously GREAT film. If you have not seen it then please do, it's awesome! ) Anyways, last night I noticed a few details I had not seen before and here's a fun example:
OK, there's this huge fight scene towards the end where Batman and Superman are having a serious battle. There's a ton of property damage and during one part they crash through the wall of a building and sort of walk through the middle of some little kid's room. Then, they end up back outside and continue fighting. It's a very brief moment. But, while I was watching this scene I noticed the little kid had a "1977 Superman Movie / Christopher Reeve" Poster on his wall!! It's a very out of focus image, meant to be just brief background, and kinda hard to notice. I think they blurred the background to give the images depth.
But hey, here's photographic proof. WOW! That is a nice homage placed in there by some Art Director or Animator, very cool!
This is just a quick post to share some random images of brand-new BATMAN items that will be coming out or are out now. First up is a photo from the recent 2013 TOY FAR, Here's a new 1966 Batman "Penguin Batmobile" Slot Car by Auto-World. Yes, for the few who don't know there was a classic moment in the vintage 60's TV Series where the Penguin stole Batman's car & then sort of customized it for himself. Wow, they're actually making a toy of that...again, ha!
Then, here's a cute decorating item called "My Pillow Pets" and it's the Batmobile in plush form. Jeez, it's SO gosh-darn cute, goo goo goo.
Now, last but not least, is this photo showing some of the packaging for a Hot Wheels BATMAN Classic TV Series 1966 Batmobile Diecast Car ( Mattel 2013 ). I've shared this item here before but this new photo I found is a little better so I thought I'd throw it in here as filler.
Over at the MTV GEEK website they just shared some really fun exclusive photos from the booth of Mezco Toys at the 2013 TOY FAIR. Here, we get to see some of the new MEZ-ITZ Batman Figures. The 1st pic shows the new Bat-Pod from the recent DARK KNIGHT Movies. I like this toy, it's pretty cool and kinda cute too!
Next up is a version of the Classic Batmobile that comes with a figure...hmm, kind of interesting.
The last two pics show some item that have been out awhile but I thought I'd share them n case somebody has not seen them yet. The one cool thing is the super-huge giant-sized figures. I really like those. Plus, the large Superman and Wonder Woman ones are new. Oh yeah, those smaller Superman Figures include in that same photo are ones for the brand-new SUPERMAN Movie.
Action Figures to Arrive at Retailers Summer 2013 McFarlane Toys in partnership with Ubisoft announced today a licensing agreement to bring Assassin’s Creed®, one of world’s most successful video games franchises, to store shelves.

One of my favorite things to do is get out of the house and run Lately I’ve found myself locked inside the gym on the treadmill while the rain pours outside. I’m always looking for fun local things to do so I was thrilled when I saw a Color Me Rad 5K coming to Oregon.... [Continue Reading]
Paper Mario: Sticker Star, $20 on Amazon
Thank goodness for Tiny Cartridge. Not sure how long this sale is going on for, but Amazon has slashed the price of Paper Mario: Sticker Star by 50%, making the game only $20. That’s a damn bargain, for those looking for a new 3DS title to play.
It’s also noted that Best Buy is having a sale of their own, that not only matches Paper Mario: Sticker Star for $20, but also has Pokemon Black and White 2 for $15 each. Check that out as well!
