Quoted from Mr68:

Happy hour posting. Leave me alone.

Just saw this....curiosity retracted....my happy hour was last night.....have a headache from hell today, so I can't join in...

#3352 3 years ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

How many people on this thread actually ordered a Batman 66 LE?

I have one available to me that another buyer wants out from under. I really dislike the artwork I have seen so far, but I am trying to keep an open mind and hope the LCD and movie clips will be the saving grace. I would have to do the deposit prior to expo.....anyone want to be my backup in case I back out after the reveal? lol Don't want to flip for anything extra, but I also don't want to take a risk, based on what I have seen so far+ I think I am really gonna dig the new JJP game and my need to spend my game money there.

I enjoyed his original post. It provided a good laugh.

You said there are bolts on the track of the garage door. Is that something for security? Is it different from the normal latches that you push through the slot of the track? Is this door more heavily insulated? I imagine it's a wood look on the outside. Sorry for the questions. Just piqued my interest.

Agreed....just confirming ( and contributing) light hearted sarcasm...nothing else to do in this thread for the next couple weeks....

Back to garage door land :

This door actually has no outside opening mechanism. Can only be opened via remote from outside. Inside there is a safety latch ( of course), but I actually have (4x) security bolts that run through the track, literally making the door impossible to open from the outside. I simply enable the remote and take the bolts out when I'm moving stuff in/out. Pretty secure. Someone could drive through it, I suppose, but that would be it.

It has extra, high density insulation in the panels that really keep the outside temps from getting in. Panels are sealed on the inside. Yes, wood textured look on the outside.

Pm if you want more info......boring stuff, even on an idle BM thread.....

That answered my question. Thanks.

I still haven't had the time or will to read all this, but who wants to bet that Joe's Batmobile will be at Expo?

If you look at the flyer for the Stern party, it says the Batmobile will be there along with Ecto-1. It's possible that's Joe's.

I haven't seen any pictures or flyers yet. I don't really want to get hooked in. I'm sure it would be his, there's only two i think and maybe two replicas.

These were at the Atlantic city car show last February .

Quoted from TomGWI:

Me too. Especially when they want a deposit up front. Kinda tells me something.

This deposit talk is killing me - its a ticket into the meet and greet for Adam West who gets an appearance fee + per person signature fee of 100-175 per person (per previous comic-con appearance contracts). And he's 88, this may be one of his last appearances. So once you get something signed, yes, you can't get that refunded. So the $ are about the signing event, at least partially - I think this has been posted at least a few times in this thread. Sorry to have to keep repeating it - but seems to be kept wrongly calling this only a BM66 deposit.

Now back to Julie Newmar...

For you Julie Newmar fans Hallmark has released a batman 1966 Julie Newmar Catwoman ornament. It went on sale yesterday. Its supposedly a limited run so once existing store inventory is gone they wont be restocked.

Someone snag them all..... Limited edition mods

#3366 3 years ago
Quoted from RogerKlotz27:

Will there be a unlimited run of premiums like usual?

Per George Gomez on C2C podcast... yes.

#3367 3 years ago

JJP WoZ, TH, Spooky RZ (you got on the buy list first, then they revealed PF and art, etc., and asked list 1-300 to solidy commit on deposit to lock-in, balance at delivery - so that was serious interest before reveal, $ deposit right after reveal).

$24 + 5 shipping. Seems Amazon already has "flippers" snagging the hallmark ones.
------------
Mattel made several villains, and Batman sets for the 1966 anniversary.The figures and batcave from Mattel are better in my opinion, for display or mods. I believe someone posted early a pic of the collection in his home display case.

I prefer this catwoman: amazon.com link »

Also I got the bendable ones, just for fun amazon.com link »

And this trio is about the only way to get batgirl, outside of paying $50 for her. amazon.com link »

So is everyone gonna freak out when they find out their 15k machine is using pre-existing toys r us stuff that costs $29.99?

That is $2, too much. This set is the one in Greg Freres photo, elsewhere in this thread: amazon.com link »

The face on this one isn't even close compared to the hallmark one. Might as well be Barbie Catwoman.

And it is stupid of Stern to link them. Not for them, but for their customers. As Jack said, don't be pressured. That is all Stern is doing, pressuring people. F them. I love Stern games, but F them. Bad business model.

#3372 3 years ago

Apologies if I have not read every post in this thread.

I am a target buyer as I've bought STLE and XMLE however I have sat out of the other LEs. What I mean is that I could buy LE from time to time. But not every single one.

But (this is my impression) from reading some posts here and there.

Super LE is limited to 20-24 some number I don't qualify so it's not important

LE Limited to 240 units each one somewhat different (that's cool) price is (??) something like $9K (?) with a deposit that is not refundable (?).

Premium (?) unlimited number price is $7700 (?) maybe more (?).

This is being sold so far sight unseen(?) meaning you are supposed to put a deposit before you see it or see any video of it being played or know much of the layout or even the LCD placement. Meaning the second LCD could be a 2" variety like TH or it could be more substantial like Alien.

My issue is with both price of LE and the questions of QC Stern has had with GB and with (?) no refund on deposit. I just can not imagine placing an order with so little information revealed.

Perhaps the premium is a possibility as the price is high but not out completely of the ballpark and likely this will a limited edition no matter how fantastic it is, with the combination of no pro, low numbers of LE plus other desirable titles looming like Alien, Star Wars, JJP3 and AFM remake. As well as the usual suspects in the $8-10K range such as previous pins (TBL, WoZ, TH, Tron LE, BIBLE, MM, restored classics).

To me, it's just too way unknown at this point in time to commit to a non-refundable deposit on a LE.

I find (in many cases) I enjoy a $4800 pro with mods similar amount to a $7-8K LE plus mods. I do appreciate the extra bling like the lighted side rails on STLE but overall I don't find the LEs to play much better than the pros and exactly the same as the premiums and the premiums are less risk because they come later and can be played first and see if they are good.

I don't think that's true. Anyone can buy a replica today.

When you buy one, I want a ride.

#3374 3 years ago

I missed the last 150 posts or so. Are there going to be backglasses at the meet and greet for Adam to sign?

They'll probably give you an IOU napkin to get Adam West's signature so you can prominently display it on the machine.

Honestly won't buyers get his signature on the machine like the Hulkster's with Wrestlemania?

That would be great if they did but no one has indicated that would be the case.

I was hoping the LE and SLE versions would have adam and burts signatures on the game somewhere as part of the bling upgrade but who knows.

Julie Newmar was guest star on last nights episode of Columbo and she was looking as hot as ever. Not sure I had seen that one before. Unfotunately she was killed at the hands of Martin Landau. Pushed off her apartment balcony many floors up.

It could have been one more floor higher but that's another story.

#3380 3 years ago

It was filmed almost 7 years after she was on Batman and she was still looking good.

How was Martin Landau? I was a big fan of Cosmos 1999 as a kid but that was... some time ago.

Martin Landau is one of the greatest actors of our time and he played twin brothers in this one and was great. If you want to see some of his best work, watch the early episodes of Mission Impossible.

We are definitely getting the most fun interpretation of the batman character with a theme that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Such fantastic actors they managed to get for the bad guys in every episode of the original Columbo. The lack of good actors to put against Peter Falk when they tried a reboot in the 80's (or 90's?) really killed it.

I mean "Norm" from Cheers? Really? Somebody thought THAT was a good idea? Ouch.

#3387 3 years ago
Quoted from Manic:

Even the occasional no-name actors they used in the original were a better choice than that.

I watched Columbo and all the original NBC mystery movies when they came out, and still enjoy watching Columbo re-runs whenever possible.

#3388 3 years ago

Do the winners of the super LE get announced at Expo ?

Karloff was a great actor..Landau was a great character actor too. His best work however was Ed Wood followed by Crimes and Misdemeanors (one of the few Woody Allan movies worth watching).

#3393 3 years ago

Two great actors.

Yes, our family had a chance to meet him back in 2012 at a local theater that was showing Ed Wood. He was very nice to all of us and took some time to talk with our sons.

Ha you clown...he's should be one of your avatars. Watch the 60's version of "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" and check out his voice acting. He played in a lot of "B" movies but the he was classically trained.

That makes me want a Love Boat pin. If they can make a B66, surely The Love Boat isn't a stretch.
