BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY - Sneak-Peek of New HOT TOYS Figure To Debut at 2014 TOY FAIR.

OK, about 2 hours ago HOT TOYS announced that they will be showcasing a brand-new Batman Figure at the next 2014 TOY FAIR. This time around they're going with a "BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY" theme... AWESOME! 

For right now, this teaser photo is all they have put out. But, remember, please stay tuned to the BAT-BLOG because in the near future we will have some amazing HD photos of this brand-new toy.

New 2014 BATMAN AND JOKER Products To Drive Collectors Crazy! #Batman75

This post is just a quick announcement of some brand-new Batman-related products that will be coming out soon that ALL Batman Collectors are gonna want to keep an eye out for. First up is this really fun set of Halloween Candy Bowl Holders. Looks like they're making 2 of them so far, Batman and the Joker ( Hey, are those Skittles™ Candy?). 

THE JOKER one is coming out in September, 2014 and BATMAN will arrive around August. Oh yeah, they're gonna have a retail price of about $32.99 each.

Next up is this extremely cool "DC Batman VRUM Ride-On Toy Box" made by Wicked Cool Toys. The 3-in-1 feature means you can ride it, pull it, and take it with you. It looks like the Caped Crusader and includes a dual-purpose strap for pulling or carrying. Comes out in August, 2014 and will retail for about $49.99.

OK, all the stuff shown up above is BRAND-NEW to the BAT-BLOG, but here are 2 items we mentioned in earlier posts, it's just that we got some fresh photos of the products which are way better. So, here we go!

In our previous post about these new "Batman Full-Size Scalers 3 1/2-Inch Mini-Figure Set" by NECA we just had a pic of the packaging. Here's a photo showing the fun details of the actual "figures". These things are for decorating the cables and wires in your life. Look for them around October, 2014. Retail: $14.99.

Then, oh my god! Here's a really great pic showing what that "25 Piece Accessory Kit" for the Classic 1966 BATMAN TV Series Figures is gonna have! I totally love the BAT-ZOOKA! Plus, it's fun that they made the BOMB, ha! (Click on it for a larger version).

BATMAN FAN? Artist? Let's Celebrate Your Bat-Creativity!

OK, the title to this post is kinda corny but I just woke-up and can't think of anything super clever right now (only on 2nd cup of coffee). 

But anyway, this post is meant to celebrate Artists and other Creative People who are "Batman Fans" and who have also become inspired to make art.

First, up above, is a random photo I came across on the Interwebs. It's a totally insane BATMAN IN GOTHAM CITY Birthday Cake! I mean, WOW! They even created a "backdrop" for it, ha!

Next up is this very cool "Batman: The Animated Series TWO-FACE CHAIR! This was made by our friend, Felix Eichholz. We all think you did an awesome job on it Dude! ( Thanks Felix )

Then, check out this Custom-Made BATMOBILE Golf Cart, it's crazy! Of course this is the Tumbler Batmobile from the recent DARK KNIGHT movie trilogy. I love the detailing on this thing, very cool!

THE MARK OF BATMAN - The Evolution of an Icon #Batman75 Infographic

Here's one of those cool "Infographic" images made to inadvertently advertise a company by using the popularity of a character or brand. They know because people love "Batman" it will get attention, it will get shared like crazy, and then they're like, "Oh my goodness... is our URL on the bottom of this graphic???" hee hee! Basically, it's for the website of HalloweenCostumes.com

OK, now that I have vented my bitterness about "modern uses of propaganda" let's just enjoy the graphic. It's pretty cool! It shows the evolution of the Batman Chest Emblem over the years and the artwork is really nice, very crisp & clean-looking.

Which one is your favorite?
