Carson passed along some pictures of his latest work, titled Father Like Son, featuring two Kid Robot 'Bots done up in some sleek gold, black, and silver metallic paint.
This set is a private commission, but Carson did mention that he loved how they came out so much that he might actually make a whole series like 'em for SDCC. Would you be interested in a series of paired robot figures like this? Or maybe not paired, but nonetheless - cut up vinyl robots.
I personally like the look, and the mini 'bot reminds me a bunch of C3PO with the shiny gold paint. Check out the images in the gallery.
Every now and then I randomly check out a website called SUPERHERO STUFF to see if they have any brand-new BATMAN Merchandise to report on. The cool thing is that they almost always do. Here are a few fresh items I thought were pretty cool.
The first 2 photos here show a new Batman Bi-fold Wallet that has a cool retro-style. The artwork also seems to be embossed, which is kinda neat. Yes, I need this.
Next up is something for the Ladies! OK, I guess Men could wear it too, if they wanted to feel pretty. Here is a "Corset-Style" Lace-Up Tube Top... with the BATMAN Bat-Symbol Logo! Hubba Hubba!
Now for something serious. We reported awhile back here at the BAT-BLOG about a huge assortment of Batman and DC Comics related Window Decals. Well, I guess they're selling pretty well because they have added a few news ones. Now, while most of these are done in a strict "Comic Book" style they have also created a series of cute "DC Super Friends" stickers too.
Last, but not least, is a totally new BATMAN Metal Lunch Box with wrap-around graphics of the Dark Knight ( Comic Book version ).
Here's a quick post to share this image of a magazine ad showing which Classic 60's BATMAN TV Series characters that Moebius Model Kits has plans to make.
We can see The Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Robin The Boy Wonder, Batman, Catwoman, and wait a minute! They have an image of Adam West as Bruce Wayne. Do they have plans to create a "Bruce Wayne" kit? I don't know, maybe I'm reading too much in this photo.
Unfortunately it's just a "teaser image" with no real pics of the actual kits so we'll all have to wait for that. In the mean time, I'm just drooling over the fact that they plan to make these beloved Heroes and Villains from my childhood. I mean, it's about time!!
WOW! I totally love FUNKO TOYS and I think it's great news that they have plans to release a bunch of cool new products with the recently available "Classic 1960's BATMAN TV Series" License!! Here is sort of a "teaser" catalog image of what their Batman 60's TV Series Wacky Wobblers ( Bobbin' Head Nodders ) will look like. So far they have plans for an Adam West as BATMAN, Burt Ward as ROBIN THE BOY WONDER, Julie Newmar as CATWOMAN, and Cesar Romero as THE JOKER!!!
Also featured in this pic, but reported on earlier at this site, are the POP! Vinyl Figures. These are pretty cool too!
One last thing, HEY! There's a ton of brand-new BATMAN Merchandise out there now for me to stay on top of and report so if any Bat-Blog Fans out there ( This means you, hopefully, ha! ) see any brand-new products while hitting the stores then please let me know.
Do you love contests? How about neato flash drives? Are you going to be at Megacon in Orlando? If you've answered yes to all of these questions, then you're in luck. The We Be Geeks podcast is holding a contest with Mimoco during Megacon. You can expect a scavenger hunt of sorts on Saturday, March 16th from 12 to 4pm. Follow them on twitter or the hashtag #WeBeGeeksMegacon to find out where they are, find them wearing the shirt in the header image above, tell them "We Be Geeks for Mimobot," and you'll be ready to begin. That's right, they'll ask you to perform something to earn an 8GB DC Comics Mimobot.
Sounds like it could be potentially amusing and/or embarrassing. I like it! So, anybody out there going to give this a shot?
Take a step back in time…way back to the Croodaceous period where finding food is a family affair and you never know what crazy creatures lurk around the bend.

He-Man.org member DJ Force made the above visual comparison between the size of Castle Grayskull as it was shown in the blueprints provided at last year’s NYCC and the size of the castle as it stands now. Based on the measurements Scott took on video, it’s downscaled by a good 11.8% from the blueprints. Which, [...]
This is a new category for us. What's a functional toy? Well, pretty much everything that doesn't fit in the other categories. It's a toy that can often be passed off for something else, whether it's a puzzle, USBflash memory, or one of these... 5. Chuppi (Mathmos) Part nightlight, part designer toy. This light up [...]
