Yes, friends, this is one of those days when you not only get a "Best of Cool Stuff" post, you also get a post of all-new, never-seen-before-on-RAOG "Cool Stuff" post!
This Batman costume comes so close to being the perfect Batman costume we all wanted as a kid... just missing a pair of gloves, plus real boots and a proper utility belt!
It's amazing how many different Batman buttons were made at the height of the TV series' popularity!
Not sure why a Crimefighter Kit needs a watch...
Rule #1 when it comes to licensed product... make sure if you hire someone to trace or otherwise copy an existing piece of art, that they are capable of not making it look like crap!
This Batman figure looks like he's imitating C-3PO on the deserts of Tatooine trying to get the Jawas' attention!
I believe these were intended as cake decorations!
Batman flashlight... I don't think I've ever seen any Batman flashlight that looked like something Batman might've actually used!
This flying Batplane toy could be epically cool if one did a major repaint on it so it would look like the actual Batplane... but said paint would probably weigh it down too much, wouldn't it?
I don't know where this foreign Batman coloring book originates from... but man, those figures of Robin and Batgirl are bulked up bigtime! I have a feeling very little research was done when preparing this.
I likewise don't know where these foreign Batman figures came from, but aren't they great?
These foreign Batman stickers really used art from a lot of different artists, didn't they? I recognize at least a few different artists there.
Doesn't it almost look like Robin's about ready to just let the Joker fall to his doom on this frame-tray puzzle?
Friction-powered Batmobile toy!
There are at least two releases of this Batman game, with the only change being to the box art and the logo used for the instructions!
I have fond memories of when these Giant Comics to Color came out, and wish the line had lasted longer!
This Batman glass is another example of the "artist hired to reproduce the licensed artwork didn't quite do it right" school of manufacturing!
I never understood the intended appeal of these Batman "glasses".
I don't see how you could possibly play this game in the dark, no matter how much of it glowed. "Hey, Billy! Want to play my Batman glow-in-the-dark game? First, let's set it under a bright light for a few hours, then we can play!"
I'm not sure which is more ridiculous, this Batman grape jelly, or the later Superman peanut butter. If only they'd been made at the same time as the Batman bread, then you could make the World's Finest PB & J!
Another of those things I've never understood is the variety of colors that the 1966 Batmobile has been manufactured in...
At least this Batman saucer gun had the manufacturer making the gun somewhat bat-like, instead of just slapping a Batman sticker on an existing saucer gun...
As goofy-looking as this Batman hand puppet is, for some reason I want one.
Just because you buy a kid hangers with Batman on them doesn't mean they are going to hang up their clothes... just sayin'.
These Batman and Robin hang gliders come so close to being cool...
The Batman hotline phone is one of those things I must've seen and wanted as a kid, but I have no memory of!
You know, considering that every single time I do a "Batman" search on eBay I find at least a few people selling the 1966 Ideal figures, it doesn't seem that they are really all that rare...
This is supposedly a Batman inflatable ball, but it looks to me like it's supposed to be a bean bag chair cover.
These Batman inflatables would be perfect for the pool!
I don't know if this Batman logo iron-on was part of a "color and iron on" set or not.
Japanese Batboat toy!
Japanese Batman trading cards!
That's a pretty cool Batman jigsaw puzzle!
These joint-action things always struck me as odd when I see them in the package... perhaps they shouldn't have been sold in cellophane bags like this, because they just look strange!
And we'll wrap up this installment with this vintage-style Joker figure!
