The Dark Knight

In compliance with Toy Week, let's discuss Batman. Batman has gone through many transformations in his comic book/cartoon/movie life. Of course there was Adam West (currently the Mayor of Quahog) in the blue and gray. There was Batman in the black and gray, the all black, the animated version, Keaton, Kilmer, Clooney (with bat-nipples), Bale and many more I'm sure.

Last weekend I went to see The Dark Knight on Friday, unsuccessfully, then again on Saturday. I must say I was quite impressed with the film and the performances (ahem...JOKER). So I was quite surprised and pleased while rummaging through the junk bin to find not only Batman, but the Joker as well. This particular Joker is from the toys released along with the motion picture Batman starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson. As for the Batman, I remember vividly being in Kay Bee Toys and begging my old man to buy this ridiculously priced camouflaged Batman. Why? I don't know. I didn't even like Batman like that. I was a Ninja Turtle guy (coming soon). Shout out to my mom for shipping all these toys to DC a couple of years ago. Who knew they would get so much action?
