Batman Legend Norm Breyfogle Needs Our Help!


We reported last week on the stroke that Norm Breyfogle suffered.  It appears that it paralyzed his left side, which is the side he draws with.  Norm is moving to an extended care facility, but as many of you may know artists don't get luxuries like insurance.  His out of pocket costs for medical bills are out of control and if he can't recover he may not be able to draw again, which is his way of making a living.  Norm has given so much joy to so many of us fans over the years...please, if you can give anything...even $5..it can help.  He has a long road ahead and the last thing he should be worrying about is money.

Product Review: NECA 1/4 Scale 1966 Robin Burt Ward Figure!

About the figure: The long-awaited companion piece to last year's #1 selling Adam West Batman figure from the 1966 TV series has arrived! We are proud to present this brand new 1/4 scale rendition of Burt Ward as Robin. For close to 50 years the Batman TV show has delighted audiences and this fall for the first time ever the complete series will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray! To celebrate this monumental event we have created this 17" tall poseable figure of the Boy Wonder featuring Burt Ward's likeness. Robin comes with a fabric cape, 6 interchangeable hands, Bata rang, communicator and more. Super-poseable and loaded with detail, this Robin is a must-have for fans of the classic Batman series. 


Our Take: The new merchandising of the 1966 Batman TV show is a dream come true for Batman collectors.  Previously, we were stuck with the original merchandise and lots of bootleg garage kits if we wanted our favorite retro characters brought to life.  Now, NECA is adding to their phenominal 1966 Batman 1/4 figure with a spot-on Burt Ward likeness!  This figure is absolutely amazing.  You literally couldn't ask for anything cooler!  The sculpt is dead-on and the paint applications are spotless.  This figure is a steal for a price point around $100.  


We toy collectors have this habit of leaving items in the package to preserve their value and their original state.  I think this comes mainly from the trauma of trying to collect toys from our childhood in the original boxes at high cost.  The desire to see the toy as it was on the toy store shelf is a big draw for a collector, but lets face it...we all tore those packages open and they got tossed in the garbage!  When it comes to the '66 Robin figure, it would be a shame to leave him boxed up.  Remove him carefully and let him out in all his glory!  He'll display much better that way.

You can own this figure today!  Buy now at online retailers like Amazon.

La-La Land The Danny Elfman Collection: Batman / Batman Returns: Limited Edition Score CD Review

La-La Land The Danny Elfman Collection: Batman / Batman Returns: Limited Edition Score CD Review

  
 Limited Edition of 3000 Units

RETAIL PRICE: $49.98

About the CD: In honor of Batman’s 75th Anniversary, La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. and WEA proudly present THE DANNY ELFMAN BATMAN COLLECTION: BATMAN / BATMAN RETURNS: LIMITED EDITION (4-CD SET). Batman swoops back into La-La Land with this thrilling re-issue of our previously out-of-print deluxe editions of Danny Elfman’s classic, original scores to the Tim Burton-directed BATMAN (1989) and BATMAN RETURNS (1992), presented together for the first time! While the programs presented on these discs are the same as found on our acclaimed initial releases, BATMAN (1989) has been overseen by producer Neil S. Bulk and newly remastered by James Nelson from recently unearthed score elements, resulting in better sound quality. (BATMAN RETURNS is the same master as our previous release.) Produced by Neil S. Bulk, Dan Goldwasser and MV Gerhard, this special release of 3000 units features gorgeous, completely re-designed packaging by Jim Titus. The 48-page booklet carries over the liner notes from our previous editions. The populace of Gotham would agree – this is one knockout presentation of two iconic scores from a legendary Dynamic Duo in its own right… Tim Burton and Danny Elfman!


Our Take: La-La Land has been putting out fantastic limited edition CDs for quite awhile now.  This great new compilation collects two of their previous releases in a deluxe edition!  You can now get both of the limited edition Tim Burton Batman film scores in one set!   This one also comes with a great booklet that includes behind the scenes details and beautiful images from each movie.  The 4-CD set would make an amazing Xmas gift for any Batman fan on your list!  At a limited edition of 3000 units, this one will sell out fast!

Christian Bale Gives His Take On End of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’


Christian Bale addressed the controvertial and much discussed ending of the Dark Knight Rises at a press conference this weekend.

“[Alfred] was just content with me being alive,” Bale explained. “And he left. Because that was the life he’d always wanted for [Bruce]. I find it very interesting. I think with most films, I tend to say it’s always what the audience thinks it is. My personal opinion is that it was not a dream. That that was for real. And [Bruce] was delighted that he had finally freed himself from the privilege, but ultimately the burden of being Bruce Wayne.”

Can Bale's Batman return someday?  “He’s still there,” he said. “He’s eaten lots and lots of [unintelligible] at this point, and he won’t fit back in that suit.”

Batman 1966 TV Series Replacement Disc Info

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) will provide fans with replacement discs and digital repairs to the few minor technical issues identified in its recent release of Batman: The Complete Television Series.

Amounting to less than five minutes of footage within the 50-plus hours of entertainment, the issues encompass one 60-second dropped scene in the episode entitled “Marsha’s Scheme of Diamonds”; a brief piece of rarely-heard William Dozier narration that originally opened the pilot episode, “Hi Diddle Riddle”; and an assembly of villain tags from the end of assorted episodes.

“The restoration process of this footage – spanning 48 years and two major studios – has been a super heroic task, and we deeply regret even the smallest of glitches occurring in that process,” said Rosemary Markson, Senior Vice President, TV Brand Management & Retail Marketing, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. “We recognize our obligation to the fans of this landmark series, and we have worked diligently to identify all issues and provide resolutions as quickly as possible.”

To resolve these issues for consumers purchasing Batman: The Complete Television Series, WBHE will make available complete replacement discs for the discs that originally included the episodes “Marsha’s Scheme of Diamonds” and “Hi Diddle Riddle.” The villain tags will be re-issued as an assembled string on one of the aforementioned discs and, as an added bonus, WBHE has acquired rights and legal clearances to both a Bat-vehicle teaser that originally aired as part of the second season-opening “Shoot A Crooked Arrow” episode, and one of the original promotional tags that aired on the original showing of the “The Duo Defy” episode. Additionally, all fixes will be made to all Digital HD versions of Batman: The Complete Television Series.

To obtain the replacement discs, consumers who have purchased Batman: The Complete Television Series are directed to www.warnerbros.com/help/customer-service.

Worldwide demand for the Limited Edition box set of Batman: The Complete Television Series has been tremendous, resulting in widespread retailer sellouts and rapidly dwindling inventories heading into the holiday season. To fulfill consumer interest, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced a new streamlined Blu-ray box set that includes all 120 episodes and matching enhanced content from the limited edition set, but without the added premium items or Digital HD copy. Purchasers of this set will also need to utilize the customer service website to obtain replacement discs.

RETAIL PRICE: $49.98

In honor of Batman’s 75th Anniversary, La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. and WEA proudly present THE DANNY ELFMAN BATMAN COLLECTION: BATMAN / BATMAN RETURNS: LIMITED EDITION (4-CD SET). Batman swoops back into La-La Land with this thrilling re-issue of our previously out-of-print deluxe editions of Danny Elfman’s classic, original scores to the Tim Burton-directed BATMAN (1989) and BATMAN RETURNS (1992), presented together for the first time! While the programs presented on these discs are the same as found on our acclaimed initial releases, BATMAN (1989) has been overseen by producer Neil S. Bulk and newly remastered by James Nelson from recently unearthed score elements, resulting in better sound quality. (BATMAN RETURNS is the same master as our previous release.) Produced by Neil S. Bulk, Dan Goldwasser and MV Gerhard, this special release of 3000 units features gorgeous, completely re-designed packaging by Jim Titus. The 48-page booklet carries over the liner notes from our previous editions.
