I really don't quite understand figural walkie-talkies, even though they still make them today (I know I've seen some for the Spider-Man movies)... figural AM radios? Yeah, maybe... the Batman case used here was also used for a radio, by the way!
These are really, really bad bootleg walkie talkies...
On the other hand, this is a pretty cool wallet, even if it is mostly yellow!
A change is under way here at the Batcave Trophy Room! In an effort to help me in the production of this blog, instead of mutliple posts in a single day, I'm going to start doing one post, even if it's featuring a number of different items in that post -- kind of like the Fortress of Solitude Trophy Room's style!
For the uninitiated, the United Kingdom would produce hardcover comics collections once a year, called "Annuals," naturally enough... some of them even appear to be the only appearance of those characters each year in a comic format!
Anyway, I'm guessing that this one is either reprinting DC stories similar in tone to the Adam West series, or it's all new stuff.
Here's another annual, although I don't know what year this one came out!
Tru-Vue was an early competitor for Sawyer's View-Master, and as you can see, they were the first to produce a Batman set! Once Sawyer bought Tru-Vue, they adapted a lot of the Tru-Vue stuff to View-Master sets, including this one!
Here's one of those items that, if I were to ever get hold of one, I'd scan the sucker in so I could print out copies on transfer paper to make my own t-shirts... heck, I'd probably post the scans sooner or later so others could do the same, now that I think of it!
The daily blog featuring photos of Batman-related merchandise going up through the 1970s, with a few 1980s items thrown in here and there! Your comments are welcomed!
Please note that I do not have any of these items for sale, and the vast majority of them are items I do not own at all. The photos were collected from eBay auctions over the years, and I wanted to share them with you all!
If you're interested in tracking down any of these items, I wish you luck, and hope that these posts help give you the information you need to find them offered on eBay! If you do purchase any of these items as a result of these posts, I'd love to hear about them -- and if you have better photos of anything I post here, I'd love to see them, too, and share them with my readers! You can email photos to me at waffyjon at comcast dot net. And if you link to a Batcave Trophy Room post, please let me know, and I'll add your blog to the blogroll!
