I've always been fascinated by a brain loose and independent by itself (due to the Captain Future cartoons in my youth, no doubt!) … so seeing this piece of news put a smile on my face, so you have my thanks, gentlemen!

Where the heck is Spring?! I’m getting desperate over here, and it sounds like much of the Northern half of the US is feeling the same way: cold. It has me double-duty daydreaming of plants in an almost obsessive way. I caught myself huffing the dirt of one of my houseplants the other day. Honestly, [...]
After several attempts and repeated reductions in targets, Richard T. Broadwater’s cryptozoology-themed “Legendary Monsters” Kickstarter campaign has finally made it. These toys were first revealed in ToyFare magazine over ten years ago, scheduled for release in fall 2001, but for one reason or another it was never produced. It did face some competition at the time [...]

Deboxed vinyl Barbie dolls don't last long in my collection. Right now there are three. My favorite is this Tarina doll.
Besides being adorable and having a really neat pink head of hair, she now has an articulated body which is essential IMO. She can wear Poppy Parker, Silkstone, NuFace and Misaki clothes. It doesn't get better.
She was released by Mattel on 6/1/08 at a retail price of $79.95. She did go on sale at BC.Com for $30. at one point. It's rare to find an NRFB for much less than $90.
All that aside, she's a cutie. Here she is dressed in an Integrity Toys Sabrina outfit made to fit the Poppy Parker body.
The camera has a hard time dealing with the intensity of the hair color. Or is it the photographer?
On Friday, Toys "R" Us Inc. pulled its IPO offering, facing year-over-year quarterly declines in revenues, profits and comparable store sales. However, these are only symptoms of a larger issue facing the chain: a business model in desperate need of an overhaul.

Here's a nice selection of Batman-inspired Clothing from a High-Fashion Company called LAZY OAF. They are located in London but they do have a website.
The 1st two pieces shown here are from their Men's Ware Collection. Both feature a Batman graphic pattern in repetition. One is the full-body character, the other is the comic book logo.
Then, in their Women's area, they have 3 different pieces with the same "POW! KA-BAM!" motif that is obviously inspired by the Classic 1966 BATMAN TV Series!

A quick post to share a fun photo from one of our top Number One Fans, Diego! He told us he reads the BAT-BLOG every single day with his morning coffee and when he is on Twitter or Facebook he shares the site with all his friends and family. Thank You Diego... You ROCK, Sir!!
Finding Nemo 2? Nah, Finding Dory
Disney posted a teaser image on their Facebook page with the words “Finding Dory,” on it, proving that the Finding Nemo sequel won’t be called Finding Nemo 2 (unless this is a spinoff, but I doubt it). Not much is known about Finding Dory as of yet, but we do know that Pixar is attached to the project and that the film is aiming for a 2015 release. As for Dory, it’s not yet confirmed if Ellen DeGeneres is reprising her role as the regal fish, but I think it’s a highly likely case. For now, “like,” the Finding Dory page on Facebook for Disney’s sake.

One of the coolest things I love about doing the Bat-Blog is getting to meet Batman Fans from all around the World. Here's a great example. Here are some photos submitted by a new friend named Agi and he lives in Hungary!
Over the years he has collected many Batman-themed replicas and toys, check this out!
The first photo is a "BATMAN FOREVER" Board Game, created by MK Toys. The game is based on the movie and the all-over language is Hungarian. He got this around 1995 ( when he was about 5 years old ) so that explains why the box is a little scruffy. His game contains four colored boardgames-pieces ( the box says it contains six, so maybe he lost two? ), some Dice, and Mystery Cards with Riddles. The goal is to get from start to finish and if someone steps on a mystery card field, gets a riddle. It’s pretty easy.
Then, he has 2 items with a "Batman: The Animated Series" theme. One is a Plastic Badge (we call them "Pins" or "Buttons" in the USA ). This item is Official™ and comes from the UK. Then, he has a Bootleg Action Fgure Key Chain, country unknown, and it's in the "Animated Series" style as well.
The next few pictures are a very cool BATMAN Action Figure. Well, sort of, it's a Michael Keaton Batman Movie Franchise Bootleg-Replica. Agi got this toy from his Grandma for, maybe, his 5th birthday? So, it’s definitely a figure from the 1990's. The cape is made of textile cloth, the arms and legs are detachable and have no articulation and the bat-belt is made of vinyl plastic. Plus, it looks really really cheap! But the cool thing is that this figure fits perfectly in the LEGO 1989 Batmobile!
And last, but not least, He has a "Matchbox-style" Batmobile (but NOT made by Matchbox or Corgi), which he says is very common in Hungary. Agi remembers getting this in the ’90's and lots of children got one in Kindergarten! He said he often stumbles upon this car at Hungarian Auction Sites. Oh yeah, he took some pictures with a Hot Wheels "Arkham Asylum" Batmobile to show the size and scale of the car.
WOW! Great stuff right here! Thank you Agi for both sharing your neat toy AND submitting some fun stuff for the site. We really appreciate the time you spent on taking photos!
