Holy Bootleg Toys, Batman!

Awhile back a good friend to the Bat-Blog, named Andreas, sent us a few photos of his “Bootleg Batman” Collection. I posted some back then but decided to wait a little bit before releasing more. You see, he collects both new & Vintage Batman Toys but one thing he likes to focus on are the wacky-crazy bootleg toys that get made all over the globe. The 1st toy is actually a pin-back button with candy attached. I think he got this in the UK where they don’t say “pins” but call them badges. ( Or was it Mexico? Sorry, forgot ). It’s a rip-off of the Bat-Signal Symbol. The 2nd photo is a “Super Heroes” Action Figure. The Blister Card features graphics with DC Comics, Marvel Comics, AND Power Rangers characters…strange. Also, if you make Batman RED & SILVER, then I guess it’s not copyright infringement, ha ha! The next photo is also an action figure but this one is from Greece. They gave him a trident which is more of a weapon for Aquaman, ha ha. The 4th pic is sort of an action figure. Well, it’s a “Marble Shooter”. Which is kinda weird because kids don’t really play with marbles much anymore. This bootlegger must have been in his 80’s, “Kids love them marble games, aahhhh”. The other weird thing is a Power Ranger makes an appearance on the card & isn’t that small picture of a monster a villain on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? The figure is kinda nice though, an “Animated Series” Batman. The last picture is the best. Yeah, I saved the best for last! This is a Batman Theme Song Tribute Vinyl Record with AWESOME Batman Graphics. If I remember right these were made in France, or maybe the UK, & they’re extremely cool! Plus, these are great quality unlike most bootlegs. Now, the main reason for posting these, other than a good laugh, is to show the history of the Batman Toys. I love the bootleg stuff but don’t go out of my way to hunt it down or pay for it. If I come across it at a flea market or garage sale really cheap I’ll get it for a funny display piece. I wanna thank Andreas for taking the time to shoot these photos & for sharing, that’s great, thanks!!

NEW Fisher Price DC SUPER FRIENDS Imaginext BATMOBILE TOY CAR & Batman Action Figure

Our good friend “Batmobile Billy” sent us a photo of this brand-new toy he saw at a retail store the other night. He’s always on the hunt for cool Batman Batmobile Toys & spotted this new variation of the DC SUPER FRIENDS BATMOBILE CAR with Batman Figure made by Fisher Price, as a part of their “Imaginext” series. This one sort of looks a little bit like the car seen in the 1989 Batman movie, kinda-sorta! It also comes with 3 industrial barrels of “Joker Chemical Waste” ( I love the Joker Logo on the top of them, funny! ). The photo showing the toy on the store shelf is Billy’s picture he snapped of the actual product & the other 2 are from the FP website. I like this car a lot & I’m gonna have to get one later, it’s pretty cool! Thanks Billy for sending the pic. If any other Bat-Blog Readers ( that includes YOU! ) spot any brand-new Batman Toys or Merchandise out there then please let us know so we can share the info, thanks!

Kenner’s SUPER POWERS 25th Anniversary – The JOKER Action Figure!

Besides having a lot of superheroes in the Kenner SUPER POWERS Action Figures line-up they also featured some really evil Super-Villains too! One of my personal favorites was this great figure of The JOKER! He’s wearing his classic purple suit & his weapon accessory was really great too. It was a Giant-Mallet Hammer that, if you look closely, had his face & evil grin on it, a very nice detail. The action figure also came with a special Comic Book. Well, more like a booklet. But the artwork was amazing & it was a fun story. In fact, I posted a scan of it here for you to enjoy…have fun!

Badass Action Figures Made Cute With Scrunchie Tutus

ass1_Upload

Thank you, Japan, for giving us something to do with all our old hair scrunchies. Someone decided to put a scrunchie on an action figure and now we have the latest meme from Japan to entertain us for the next week. It doesn’t matter how badass the action figure, once you put a tutu on it there’s nothing but cute. Even Predator and Alien look downright huggable in all that frilliness.

See more badass cuties after the break…
