Yeah, the title says “coming soon” but I guess I’m hyping it a little bit, sorry. Here are some brand-new BATMAN Home Furnishings that will be coming out in November, 2012. OK, that’s about 3 months from now but it’s always good to know about these things in advance so you can budget your money, ha!
A company I have never heard of, Westland Giftware, is making a ton of cool Batman-related products and this post just covers a few of them. These are the”home decor” items; but this company will also be making Cookie Jars & Snow Globes too. Please stay tuned to the BAT-BLOG.COM for many more pics we will post in the next day or two.
Whoops, I got so excited I almost forgot to talk about these, ha ha! OK, check out the majestic beauty of this cool Batman Lamp. It’s gonna have a retail price of around $55.00. Then there’s a fun Night Light ( $16 ) and a Retro-Style Wall Clock ( $25 ). Like I said, November… just in time for Christmas!
OK, I do not know the full complete story yet on this brand-new Hot Wheels Batman Car yet but it is kinda fun so I guess, for now, consider this a teaser. Anyways, it looks like Mattel is going to release a Special Edition 1966 TV Series Batmobile Car ( George Barris version ) that has a Halloween Holiday Theme! Stay tuned to the BAT-BLOG.COM and once we get more info we’ll share that.
Also, be sure to click on the photo up above for a larger, more detailed, version.
Here’s a quick post to share this fun photo of a brand-new BATMAN product expected to arrive in November of 2012. This is a 31-Inch BATMAN Action Figure based on THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Movie. Yes, you read that right, 31 inches! It’s HUGE!! These are totally great for display. This one is made by a company called Jakks Pacific.
Since it is the Holiday Season ( Bah, Humbug! ) I thought I’d share these photos of a few brand-new Batman items that are out there now that would make fun Christmas Gift Ideas for Batman Fans & Toy Collectors. The idea for this post actually came about because a friend on Facebook sent me a link to the Toys-R-Us website that featured a very cute toy car of Commissioner Jim Gordan’s Gotham City Police Car ( Thanks Melissa ). This toy is kinda goofy and it’s so unusual that I know I’m gonna have to add it to my personal collection. Anyways, while there at the site I surfed for more Batman goodies and discovered a ton of fresh items I have not seen yet. Here’s a small list:
DC Super Friends THE JOKER FUN HOUSE GAME by Fisher-Price. Now, we have mentioned this item here at the Bat-Blog before but their site had a great photo of the contents to the game, looks fun! Also, I totally love the graphics on the box.
Next up is that “Gotham City Police Car” we mentioned with Jim Gordon driving ( that cracks me up! ). This is a part of the Mattel’s DC SUPER FRIENDS toy line.
Then, check out this little kid. Oh man, he’s crazy for Batman in this cute one piece outfit with hat. I wonder if they make that thing in MY size, ha ha.
The next two items are related to the BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD TV Cartoon. Yes, this animated series is not on the air anymore but is still a really great version of the character. Plus, for many small children he is their version of Batman! The 2 items include an Action Figure Motorcycle Vehicle called “Asphalt Assault” Bat-Cycle. Then, my favorite, is this Batman-head Flashlight.
OK, last but not least, is an item I know I would have totally loved a s a kid. Here’s a very cool “Arts and Craft” item featuring Batman Characters with artwork you can color and a really cool Drawing Kit you can tote around. The “coloring pages” are on a big roll and you color one scene, then move on to the next… fun!

Our Good Buddies in NJ, BatDave & Dennis Pellicano, proudly present BATMAN, ROBIN, BATGIRL & The 1966 BATMOBILE in all their full-color glory at the recent 2012 KAPOW! Comic Con. This event was filmed live at the Monmouth County Library Headquarters in Manalapan, New Jersey. The Titanic-Trio of Superheroes thrilled the young and old alike during a gorgeous autumn afternoon.
This awesome event promoted the importance of reading and education, utilizing the Gotham Guardians as positive role models for the young children while being an inspiration for many of the special needs kids that were in attendance. No child left that day without a FREE photo with an autograph of their favorite Crime Fighter. As always, almost every scene was shot in one take due to our sad budgetary restrictions. HUGE thanks to the organizers of KAPOW! and to MIKE & MING of AMC’s ‘Comic Book Men’. The sweet 1966 Batmobile was provided by jovial John Brown and Gotham City Supercars.
Oh Man, check out the beauty of this photo!! At this years recent 2012 New York City Comic Con ( NYCC ) the CA Enterprises Toy Company revealed the prototype of what the packaging for the “CAPTAIN ACTION Batman Outfit” will look like and it looks GREAT! I totally love the retro silver-age style. They even used Carmine Infantino artwork!! Plus, if you look at the back of the box they also show that they will be making one of The Joker!! Look for these to hit retail stores around 2013.
For the few people who don’t know who Captain Action is, this was a very famous toy line in the 1960′s created by the Ideal Toy Company. Basically, he was sort of like the 12″ G. I. Joe Doll except Captain Action had a different persona and then they also sold Superhero Outfits you could buy to transform him into another character. They made outfits of Batman, Aquaman, Superman, Spiderman, and many others. These vintage toys are hard to find today & very collectible. Plus, they’re just really cool!!
