Batmobile gif

Batman is man of many gadgets and toys, but none of the tools of the infamous vigilante are as iconic, as the Batmobile itself. Since it's incarnation in the comics it has been redesigned multiple times to fit with the era or version of the Bat that existed. Some models of batmobile were immortalised more than others by featuring in TV and film with the different actors that have donned the cape and cowl of Batman over the years. Each actor brought something different to the role as did directors who looked to take the franchise in their own direction. These changes are shown clearly in the vehicles chosen to be the Batmobile. The infographic and video by Select Car Leasing give you all of the information you could want about the Batmobiles used in the films and tells you ...

Versus

The theme for March's Loot Crate was Versus which is supposed to celebrate some of the greatest rivalries ever from comics, television and movies. Honestly I found it a little lacking which was disappointing considering the last few crates. The crate itself featured the usual DIY aspect I've come to expect from my crates where you flip it inside out for it to work however the artwork did not blow me away. One side was a jungle landscape while the other was the inside of a spaceship. This was to go with one of the pieces of loot which was a vinyl Alien/Predator. I got Predator and while this went together with the style of the crate and the whole versus theme it just wasn't as great as it could have been. The magazine artwork however was top notch ...

Loot Crate

As I'm really behind on my blogs I will be doing 3 reviews in 1 post to save time and so in my catch up I can concentrate on posts to do with TV, Film and more! The May, June & July crates were stockpiled for the months I was working on my Hulkbuster and all the loot from them was finally released in one big go last week when I had the time (and space) to do so. It was so worth the wait. So this is what opening 3 @lootcrate's at once looks like 😅 #lootcrate #loot #geek #superhero #batman #wonderwoman #optimusprime #comics #tshirt A video posted by @trevorAKP (@tv_trev) on Jul 27, 2015 at 11:30am PDT As you can see from the short clip I put together when unboxing it, there was a lot ...

Marvel

The final day of the convention I intended to experience it in it's fullness so arrived on time for when it was due to start, naively expecting to be able to stroll in but was instead met with a queue that went around the building making for a half an hour wait to get in under the blazing Spanish sun. However once in I was met with yet more amazing cosplayers who had truly come out en-masse for the final day. What was truly lovely to see were the families of cosplayers that were in attendance. Parenting done right. From How to Train Your Dragon families to an Iron Man family allowing for a super girl, there were some lovely displays of adult cosplayers getting their kids involved in their wonderfully creative passion of dressing as their favourite characters. Once ...

Anniversary

The theme for December's Loot Crate was "Anniversary" and no they didn't get all religious on us with loot related to Jesus' birthday, no instead they brought us loot centred around the important anniversaries that this year has brought us including The Simpson's celebrating 25 years, Ghostbusters and Tetris celebrating 30 and of course the 75th anniversary for some of our favourite comic heroes. The loot for this crate although it came late it was not as late as the previous one and I will forgive them as it is difficult to get everything delivered on time at this time of year especially when they're still dealing with a higher number of inquiries and irritated geeks. I managed to stay spoiler free until probably a week and a half ago when someone I followed on Instagram got their crate and ...

Gotham

It's been a while since I've written a post but I just had to write one about Gotham. I do luckily have a week off so I should be catching up on my posts this week as long as I don't get too distracted... In this post I'll cover why you need to watch this new take on the origins of the characters in Batman and how the city of Gotham came to be the way that we know. It's due to be released September 22nd in the US. The UK release date however is unknown. Plot Unlike most things within the world of Batman and Gotham this series does not focus on the caped crusader...not directly anyway. The series focuses on a young James Gordon as he rises to prominence in Gotham City years before Batman's famed arrival. ...
