    Fruits with faces by Andrew Bell look pretty adorable, and yet thoroughly eerie. Would you want to take a bite? HAH

    Done for his upcoming show"Odd Obst" launching April 26th in adhocPAD in Vienna … it would be nice if it incorporated his recently released "Can of Worms" (ala the sketch in the insert image), innit? As for what the four apples are made of, Andrew tweeted: "i sculpted one in clay, and then made a silicon mold and cast four in resin".

    Mind you, Steiffgal is no psychic when it comes to Steiff.  The company has made thousands and thousands of different products since the late 1800's when it first started producing playthings for children.  And photos are so important when assessing subtle differences between similar products.  However, in the case of this reader's question, Steiffgal was able to use a little ESP (Essential Steiff Powers) to help identify an old friend simply by description.  Hazel writes:

    "Steiffgal:

    I don't know if you can assist me. I stumbled upon your website recently whilst trying to find some history re: my little Steiff item.

    I have a Steiff German Shepherd measuring 10" or 26 cm from paw to tail. He has a red velvet tongue and he is lying down slightly on one side. He has a yellow Steiff label in his ear with a worn silver looking stud. He has some wear to him and is a lovely shabby shade of browns and darker on his back.

    I am sorry I do not know how to add photos to my email so any information you could offer would be great.

    Many thanks I look forward to your reply.

    Kind regards, Hazel" 


    Unless she's in a "dog-daze" Steiffgal is all but certain that Hazel's pooch is Steiff's lying Arco German Shepherd.  This precious pooch is unjointed, lying to one side, and made from tan mohair that has been gloriously and realistically airbrushed with patches of black, brown, and tan.  He has pert ears, large and floppy paws, and an impressive tail.  His face is detailed with black and brown pupil eyes, a well defined muzzle, and a happy open mouth with a large red felt tongue.  Lying Arco was produced in 22, 35, and 50 cm from 1957 through 1976.  Steiff usually doesn't count the tail in measurements, so it is Steiffgal's best guess that Hazel's dog is the 22 cm size.  

    Steiffgal is unable to fetch details about Arco's button from Hazel's note.  However, if his button is the raised script version, he would have been produced approximately in the 1957 through 1968 time frame.  If he has the domed lentil style button, he would have been produced approximately in the 1969 through 1976 time frame. 


    German Shepherds are one of Steiff's beloved "Best in Show" dogs that have been in the line almost continuously in one form or the other since 1923.   They have appeared over time in mohair and wool plush and standing, sitting, lying, on wheels, as studio (life sized) models, and even as dog-dolls in the late 1930's through early 1940's.  The photo on the left of the Pupp-Arco or Arco Doll is from Pfeiffer's 1892-1943 Steiff Sortiment book.  Pupp-Arco is extremely rare; Steiffgal has never actually seen one in person.  Overall, the presence - or absence - of a tongue on Arco is one of the key clues collectors use to date Steiff's German Shepherds! Those produced before 1957 did not have tongues while those produced from 1957 onward did.

    Steiffgal hopes this Arco identification has been an ESP (Exciting, Surprising, and Phenomenal) experience for you!

  • 04/17/13--17:11: Choujigen Game Neptune Anime

  • Choujigen Game Neptune [超次元ゲイム ネプテューヌ] (Hyperdimension Neptunia) is an upcoming anime series based on the popular game series of the same name. The anime will be directed by Mukai Masahiro [向井正浩] with animation production by David Production [デイヴィッドプロダクション] (Inu X Boku Secret Service, Level E). The series will begin this Summer.


    The story takes place in a world known as the 'Gameindustri', in which beings known as the 'Goddesses' each rule over one of the four countries of Gameindustri: Planeptune, Lastation, Lowee, and Leanbox. Between each of these countries exists a source of the Goddesses' power known as the 'Share', and war between the different factions has continued for many years to gain control of these Shares.

    However, the Goddesses believed that the continued war would cause their countries to needlessly lose power, and thus created a treaty of friendship forbidding war over the Shares. With the new treaty in place, the four younger sisters of the Goddesses began to try build relationships with one and other. The girls go through their fair share of laughter, arguments and sometimes even cooperation as new colorful days in Gameindustri begin. But what future awaits them now?

  • 04/17/13--17:27: Fantasista Doll

  • Fantasista Doll [ファンタジスタドール] is an upcoming original anime series created by Taniguchi Goro [谷口悟朗] (Code Geass). The series will be directed by Saito Hisashi [斎藤久] (Sora no Otoshimono, Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai) with animation production by Hoods Entertainment [フッズエンタテインメント] (Nazo no Kanojo X, Seikon no Qwaser). The series will begin airing this Summer.


    Uno Uzume may just be your typical second year middle school student, but one day something happens that turns her life around completely. She gets hold of some mysterious cards that can materialize mysterious girls called Fantasista Dolls! Uzume becomes a card master, and forms a contract with five dolls, each with their own unique personalities.

    But then a battle begins that could mean trouble for not only the city she lives in, but the entire world... and she is the only that can stop it now! Even though she may think it's impossible for her, she can't do anything to get out of it now! She must fight using various combinations of cards - different weapons, costumes and even events which will allow her to fight. Not to mention that each of the dolls also keeps coming up with strangely cute demands of her!

    Will Uzume be able to save the world? For that sake will she even be able to protect herself?!

    I just wanted to share this hilarious "Batman and Robin" Parody Art I came across lately. I'm not sure when this book came out but it has been out awhile. This was on the cover of an IDW Comic Book titled, "Infestation Team-Up" and they took that book's main characters, Bat Boy and Archibald by Bill Morrison. He posed them just like the ultra-classic artwork of Carmine Infantino, as seen down below. 

    The cool thing, besides the humor being so funny, is that this tribute was done while Mr. Infantino was still alive and he really deserved it, even more than ever. Yes, we miss him deeply, R.I.P. Good Sir.

    ZAP! BAMM!! Check out this incredible family photo sent in by a Bat-Blog Fan named Todd. WOW, I totally love these Vintage BATMAN T-Shirts!!

    This pic is of him and his brother, Jeff, was taken while on vacation in 1966. That was the same year they got a Color TV Set, so they always got to see the Classic 1966 BATMAN TV Series... in COLOR!

    Todd is the older, taller one. He said he would have been about 4 yrs old in this picture and his Brother would have been about age two. Very Cool!!


    ( Thanks Todd for sharing these great memories, this cool pic & your love of the Caped Crusader! )
