The pictures up above are 4 different brand-new “Japan Anime-Inspired” PVC Statue Figures to keep an eye out for in the future. They’re called “Ame-Comi Hero & Heroine Series”. Of course they are Japanese-Style versions of Batman, Robin, Modern Batgirl ( Cassandra Cain ), & Catwoman. Each figure measures approx. 7 1/2 to 9″ tall & come with a display stand inside a window box. They also vary in price from $60.00 to $70.00. Batgirl & Catwoman have a release date of October 21st, 2009. Batman & Robin won’t be out until around February 10th, 2010. ( Thanks Saul for sending me the improved photos ).
Bat-Blog Contest Winner Announcement: Set Of Three Hot Wheels – 1966 Batmobile, Batboat, & Batcycle!
OK, It’s finally time to announce the winner for our recent Bat-Blog Contest where we are giving away three 1:50 Scale Hot Wheels, The 1966 Batmobile Car with Trailer Hitch, The Bat-Boat with Trailer, & the Classic ’66 Bat-Cycle Motorcycle!! But first I would like to thank our good friend THE BATFAN for donating these 3 gifts. Without his amazing generosity this contest would not have existed. So, Thank You BATFAN! I would also like to thank everyone for entering. These toys must be pretty well liked because we received record responses! As you should know the contest ended last night, at midnight, & a little after that I put a ton of numbers in a hat. After mixing them up for quite awhile one number was randomly picked from the batch. The lucky winner of the latest Bat-Blog Contest is…Steven M. of Westville, NJ!! Steven, please be sure to contact us soon so we can confirm your mailing address & get these mailed to you. In fact, I already have them very carefully packed & when you get them you’re gonna cry! They are really beautiful, seriously! Now, everybody else please stay tuned to the Bat-Blog because we have some more contests lined up that you will not want to miss. For the very next contest I’m thinking about doing a mini-one where it’s real quick & will only last a few days. Then we’re gonna have a really BIG one with some extremely cool items. Also, Thanks Again to BATFAN & all the people who entered!
Just a quick post to let all Tim Burton Fans know that his website to promote his new art book is finally open! The title of the book will be “The Art of Tim Burton” & will be made in both hardcover & deluxe edition. When you go there you can preview a few pictures. It’s sort of at the “teaser stage” where they don’t really show that much but it should be bursting out pretty soon. While there be sure to look for the picture of The Joker, it’s crazy!
Here’s an extremely cool photo sent in by a Bat-Blog Reader named Bob. ( Click on the above picture for a larger, more detailed, version ). He recently bought this 1960′s Style Batmobile Car! He said it was made by some guy in the 60′s & is actually a 1958 Corvette body. It only has 8019 original miles because it’s mainly been stored for 30 years. Plus, the funny thing, is that the title to the car actually says “BATCAR”…that’s GREAT! ( Thank you Bob for sending the photo & sharing your wonderful story, I appreciate that. Oh yeah, and if I’m ever in your neck of the woods, then I want a ride in this thing, ha ha! )
