With Christmas fast approaching, I figure this is as good a time as any to point out anything in my "Cool Stuff" posts that I'd love to have in my collection... let's see if there's something in this post on my want list!
Bat-Signal Iron-On... neat, but not on my want list... more after the jump!
Batman bendys! Both nice, but I'm not a big bendy collector myself...
This coloring book would be worth it to get just for that awesome painted cover!
Not a big fan of collecting bootleg items, either... although these are kind of fun to check out, just to see how close they tried to get without completely violating copyright.
This can, as you might imagine, was made in Brazil, although I have no clue what was originally in it! Nice stock art, though.
This bubble bath container, so far, is about the only thing in this installment of "Cool Stuff" that I think would be neat to have in my collection, but that's really only because I like collecting '66 Batmobile toys (not that I have many of those).
That is the weirdest expression on this Batman button! The one below is much better!
Some of these items make me wonder how it was I never saw them in the stores when they were originally out...
Very cool art on this Batman card game! Looks like Infantino with Anderson inks... anyone have a better guess?
These playing card boxes look like someone did a half-decent job of tracing art provided by DC...
Not sure where these cards are from, but really? Robin is the only one who knows who Batman is? Are we forgetting Alfred, Superman, Jimmy Olsen, Ra's Al Ghul, Talia, the other Justice League members...?
Not too many items were made using this Catwoman costume design, making this mask pretty rare!
Catwoman iron-on transfer! You know, seeing this costume makes me kind of wish they'd used it for Julie Newmar's costume in at least one episode of Batman...
The seller of this item identified it as a "Catwoman statue," but clearly there are bats on it... yet it doesn't look like Batwoman or Bat-Girl's costumes, so I can only assume someone got confused, as it clearly has Bat-elements on a Catwoman costume!
Batman color by number book!
Some foreign Batman coloring books... is that Metallo, the Man With The Kryptonite Heart he's facing off against on that first one?!?
Coloring poster set! Put this squarely in the "stuff that really should get reissued" column!
If the art style on this cover is any indication, it was part of a series of coloring books that shared some common pages... as if they came up with one 128-page coloring book, then decided they wanted multiple 64-page coloring books, and kind of distributed the pages between about six different books, so there's a lot of duplication! Here's other covers in that same series:
Eclipso does not appear in this coloring book!
I've never seen photos of the coloring books shown here!
And we'll wrap this up with these Corgi Bat-vehicles... Man, I'd love to have those Batmobiles!
