When I was but a wee lad, I was a card carrying member of “The Batman Club” and while my official membership card seems to be gone to the sands of time, I still have a great fondness for all things Caped Crusader which makes me happy to share the latest news from the fine folks over at Eaglemoss Collections. Take a look down below and prepare to be excited.
The Press Release:
Ever since his modern cinematic debut in 1989’s Batman, the Caped Crusader’s one constant companion has been – no, not Robin™ the Boy Wonder – his iconic Batmobile!™ Part assault vehicle, part pursuit and rescue transport, part mobile crime lab and part the screen’s coolest looking car, the Batmobile has always been the most technologically advanced crime-fighting asset in Batman’s arsenal.
Like the Dark Knight™ himself, everybody has a favorite Batmobile and now all of the cars, from Tim Burton’s 1989 classic to the conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy in 2012, have been brought together in one comprehensive, fully illustrated, 72-page volume from Eaglemoss Hero Collector, designers, manufacturers and publishers of high-quality collectibles from across the many worlds of pop culture.
Written by Alan Cowsill, James Hill and Richard Jackson – with original illustrations contributed by Ed Giddings and Mojo – Batmobile Cutaways: The Movie Vehicles 1989-2012 is a one-of-a-kind visual reference guide featuring original cutaway artwork approved by Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, as well as lavish illustrations and photos highlighting every vehicle from Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), Batman & Robin (1997), Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012).

Now that “Wonder Woman” is kicking some behind in the box office, the attention is starting to build up for the Late Fall opening “Justice League” film. With this being the case the toys are going to start coming as well, and Mattel has just recently unveiled their first group of action figures that is based on the film. Let’s take a look at them with the official images.
Holy miniature figurines Batman, Mezco Toyz is unveiling their “Classic Series” Mezitz & Batmobile! Yep, those fantastically funky folks over at Mezco Toyz were holding an event at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Odditorium to reveal their 1960’s “Classic Series Batman” Mezitz figures and Batmobile. Check out the poster below.
This was open to the public and of course members of the press so I made sure to be on point when all of a sudden a tremendous commotion started in the street – clearly the citizens of the Big Apple were far less used to the Caped Crusader driving by but here he was in all his blue and gray glory.
Batman seemed to be reporting in to either the Commissioner of maybe even Robin back at The Batcave. Whatever he was doing he clearly assessed the situation as one that he could handle solo.
Welcome to our third and final chapter from the Day One NY Comic Con wanderings. It was a very productive day and we met a lot of cool people and saw some awesome things. I wanted to keep the images to fifty per post but I ran out before we hit that with this chapter but don’t worry I still have a three day span coming up. Let’s begin the visuals with this awesome Darth Vader holiday ornament. Yeah I want this. It’s too awesome.
