OK, This is one of those glass cubes you usually see at Truck Stops and Flea Markets where it’s a glass cube with some mysterious 3D artwork that is inside. It always amazes me, “How do they do that?” Apparently they use lasers… it’s a total mystery but a very cool effect. Anyway, around December, 2012, DC Direct will be releasing a special one that features “THE BAT”, Batman’s Flying Vehicle from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Movie. It’s gonna measure about 4″ high x 4″ wide x 4″ deep and will have a retail price of $29.95.

I found this Batmobile on Amazon and it had these awful stickers so I removed them and added the1966 Batmobile vinyl emblems.
My Grandson, Joshua, is a year old so this Batmobile being remote controlled is just perfect.

OK, since today, in the United States, is what we call “Black Friday”, I thought I’d do this post to share some fun new Batman Products that are out now and that you can order online at a site called KIMMY SHOP. This place mainly caters to Parents & Grandparents who are looking for Christmas gifts to give little kids. But the cool thing is that they actually offer a ton of cool unusual pieces of Bat-Merchandise!
The list includes: a Batman Pop-Up Game with incredible graphics of some major villains, a Batman Super 3-D Dartboard Set ( the Joker! ), and a Batman Stadium Camping Chair with graphics inspired by the BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD cartoon.
Here we have 2 fun items for school, a Batman Backpack and Lunchbox. Then sort of along the same line, is this cool Batman Carry-On Luggage ( perfect for Holiday traveling ), and the last 2 items are kinda weird I know, but they are “the Dark Knight”, a Justice League Toothbrush and a serious Bat-Logo Thermos!
Like I said, all of these items are available at a fun place called KIMMY SHOP, just click here!

I was recently contacted by a Book Publisher asking me if I would like to do a Book Review on a new book they were coming out with. They told me the title was, “THE LAW OF SUPERHEROES. They also said it contained a lot of examples that featured “Batman” so I might like it. Well, to my relief, I honestly loved it…Yes, the book is a really fun read! This book covers many legal issues that many superheroes would be faced with.
As a little kid, growing up reading a ton of comic books, I always wondered what would happen if Superheroes “were real” and what would happen after some battle where there was a ton of property damage and who would be responsible to pay for it? You remember these stories. Some Giant-Sized Monster would come to Earth and have a huge fight with Superman, or the Incredible Hulk, and they would destroy a few buildings in the process. Hey, who would have to pay for that? Ha Ha!
Well, this book answers that question and many many more. This book is based off a popular blog called “Law and the Multiverse”. At that website they are always covering many such legal issues. This new book was written by James Daly and Ryan Davidson, who are both not only major comic book fans, but they’re real-life Attorneys as well. The book takes the idea of “What if Superheroes were real and how would they be affected by laws in the United States and abroad?”.
For example: Batman works with the Gotham City Police Department, so if he captures the Joker and the Joker confesses to a crime, could the Joker’s Attorneys later have the confession ruled inadmissible at trial because he wasn’t given a Miranda warning? Or what if a hero kills another, but that second hero comes back from the dead. Would the first still be charged with murder? Can Bruce Wayne patent the Batmobile? Is Superman’s use of x-ray vision or super-hearing an invasion of privacy?
The book goes into great depth about many questions like this and answers them in a very serious way. In most of their commentary they use real “Law Book” statutes and even present actual court cases that are similar to the issue. It’s all very thought provoking and if you’re studying law in school, then it’s something you could use to learn more. But, I’d like to stress that even if you’re only just a fan of reading comics then you’ll enjoy reading this book too.

Ace Bat-Reporter Batmobilly spotted some really excellent totally brand-new Batman Toys at his local retail store the other night. These are tiny little figures called “Squinkies”. There’s a special set of Batman-related ones and they also did the “Justice League”. It looks like there are 12 per package. Batmobilly was cool enough to open a package so we can see what these things look like. Oh man, check it out, there’s the Joker, Two-Face, Catwoman, Penguin, Bane, Riddler, Robin, Nightwing, batgirl, 2 Batman Figures and even a nice Batmobile car!! Yes, these are really cool! I’m gonna have to get the “Batman Set” for sure. ( Thanks Batmobilly )
