Tweeterhead shared some photos with us the other day giving us an idea of what the next Batman '66 Statue is gonna look like. It will be the wonderful "Dynamo Doll" herself, BATGIRL!!
Yes, the Yvonne Craig version of the character is coming out later and we totally love these 2 pics showing the prototype stages of development. I mean, this Marquette Statue already looks great and we know the finished product will be amazing!
We don't have any news right now on an exact release date but please stay tuned to the BAT-BLOG and once we get some more pics we will let you know.
Anyone who has been reading the BAT-BLOG for any amount of time knows that we are obsessed with all the fun Batman merchandise out there and we are always reporting everything we come across. Sometimes it's almost overwhelming, at certain times there is just so much!
Well, check out these 2 fun bat-items! The first bit of news is about this "Batman Mini-Skateboard" by Tech Deck (some toy collectors call these "Fingerboards") that are in stores now. This photo was sent to us by a good friend named Jerrmin. I have not seen these yet so, hey, thank you Jerrmin!
Next up is a weird and wacky "Batman item" that is sort-of related to the Joker. We say "sort-of" because it is not an official product but more of a bootleg or "swipe", as some Graphic Artists call it. Here are some Mural Art and Craft Paints being sold with a graphic that was lifted from some promo comic book art of the Joker done by the legendary Neal Adams.
I posted Neal Adams' original artwork down below so you can see the resemblance, ha ha ha!
Batman, the Caped Crusader, and that wacky Webslinger, the Amazing Spiderman, once again cross paths at their favorite comic book shop...
Steve Nemeckay's AMAZING HEROES!! Located along Stuyvesant Avenue in historic downtown Union, New Jersey!
Written by and starring New Jersey BatDave; starring, edited and directed by Dennis 'Spider-Denny' Pellicano.
Hey, check out these photos in detail because they are really awesome!
Over at the BAT-BLOG FACEBOOK fan page we got a message from a Cosplayer named William Ketts who is also a very serious Batman Fan that lives in Houston, Texas.
Don't believe me? Well, check out these cool pics that prove his "Michael Keaton-style bat-suit" is really really great!
As a side note we should mention that this is an earlier version of his costume and he recently sent us some pics of a newer, "improved", version. Wow, I mean, I don't know how this suit could be improved... it's so awesome! But hey, we will be posting those pics in a future post. So, keep an eye out for that!
(Thanks William, good job!)
Check out this random photo I came across the other day. It's some sort of protest against something in Brazil and I had no idea what it meant. So, I asked some Brazilian friends on FACEBOOK to translate it for me and here's what they said.
It's a protest against Brazil's current President, Dilma Rousseff. She is the first woman to hold the office. Many people want her impeached, including this guy dressed as Batman. The sign he is holding roughly translates to the phrase, "DILMA OUT!".

OK, it's been awhile since I posted some Free Bat-Blog BATMAN WALLPAPERS so here we go! The first one is a photo of a brand-new product coming out later made by Gund. They are a plush toy company that is known for having super-high-quality merchandise so we're happy to hear about this. They also plan to make ones of Robin the Boy Wonder (Teddy Bear), Superman (Puppy) and Wonder Woman (Bunny).
Then, I decided to make a background pic of the now-famous, or should we say "infamous", graphic showing what was going to be the variant cover for Batgirl #37 before it got cancelled.
It was drawn by the comic book artist Rafael Albuquerque and once it got leaked-out all the Neo-Feminist Crybabies started to squawk about it! OK, I kind of get their point. It does show violence towards Women but IT IS the freakin' JOKER!! I don't remember them saying one damn thing when the Joker beat Robin to death with a crowbar!! (I guess Men are disposable). Yes, double standards help to keep their false entitlement going and this is nothing more than lame censorship. Shame on you, shame.
Here are some very early prototype pics of a new TWO-FACE Statue that will be coming out by Tweeterhead later this year.
Please keep in mind that this Marquette is being shown in the rough early stages of development and the actual product is practically guaranteed to be super-awesome!
This will be the next addition to their "Batman Classics" Series. We can't wait to see the final product! These have all been really great so far.
So, please stay tuned to the BAT-BLOG and once we get more info it will be posted.
How did I miss ever seeing THIS video? I am always hunting for cool "Batman stuff" on YouTube and this got by me somehow. But, I'm happy to be sharing it now. It's kinda cool.
Here's a nice commentary by Neal Adams on his new BATMAN ODYSSEY Book and it's interesting to see his point of view on this subject. Check it out!

OK, every serious Batman Fan of a certain age is gonna be really excited about this news! Back in the 1970's and 80's there used to be a product called "Underoos". Basically they were a Character T-Shirt and Underwear Briefs Set that were like the costumes of your favorite Comic Book, Movie or TV Hero.
I remember being a little kid and begging my Mom to buy me some, ha ha! My younger Sister even wanted a pair and I think she was "Wonder Woman". I mean, EVERY kid wanted some of these... they were very popular.
So now, here we are today in 2015 and they have brought them back for Adults. YES! They even have a few Batman-related one. We get Batman, Batgirl, and Harley Quinn!!
It's also important to mention that the new packaging is designed to look just like the vintage-retro originals, that's kinda cool.
I found these at HOT TOPIC.
