Cool Stuff!

And now, one of the most popular features of Random Acts of Geekery... cool stuff! For those of you who are newer readers of RAOG, Cool Stuff is a photo feature of items I found of interest offered on eBay in the past. Some of these may be available at this time, some may not be... but none of them (unless I mention otherwise) are pieces I have in my own collection, and of course are not for sale by me. This month, it's all Batman stuff! Let's begin!

batman_jokerfig
First up is this Joker plastic figure, which may have been a South American piece. Note that in his hand, the Joker is carrying one of his "Laughing Fish," which is a nice touch!


batman_jokermagnet
A Joker magnet, probably from the mid to late 1970s. Note the artwork: the main Joker figure was one of the standard licensing drawings from the 1960s, while the logo comes from the short-lived comic book.

batman_jokerslotcar

A Joker slot car, I believe this was from a set that AHI or Remco produced.


















batman_jokerwatchJoker watch! Again, a 1960s drawing on a 1970s item.


batman_keychain
This Batman keychain is, as you can tell, a late 1960s item. Note that instead of his bodysuit being colored grey, it's red!

batman_kite
That's a pretty funky Batman drawing on this kite, isn't it?

batman_lamp
Batman lamp, or possibly night light. I'm guessing this is a 1970s item.

batman_lc
batman_lc2
batman_lcs
Lobby cards from Batman: The Movie.

batman_logoglass

batman_lunchbox4
1960s Batman lunchbox, and in very nice condition, too!

batman_magicslate
There's a fair range of artists on this Batman Magic Slate! The Joker figure appears to be a Jim Aparo illustration, but I'm not sure about the others.

batman_matchboxbatmobile
A relatively recent Matchbox Batmobile, obviously from before Hot Wheels got the license and after Corgi's license expired.

batman_minifigs
A pair of really beat-up Batman mini figures!

The art style seems to suggest it was adapted from one of the early 1960s comics stories, or perhaps a 1950s one.
