Incidentally, has anybody actually seen these new Catwoman and Penguin DC Multiverse figures in a store? Target carries the line and that's where I picked up the '89 Batman several weeks back, but I have yet to see the other characters anywhere in person. They'll pop up online every now and again but the $40+ asking prices are unacceptable. I can't believe they would be THAT rare already.

They are indeed very rare... either Mattel released limited shipments or some greedy collector's have already snapped alot of them up.

The same thing happened with TDK figures. The Joker was pretty hard to find when it first came out, because people were buying them in bulk, and then selling them for about 3-4x the asking price.

I'm not a huge fan of those figures, as the majority(not all) of them seem to fade in a weird color over time. It's not really worth it, to me.

Ah, the ends I would go to for my Movie Master hunts, lol. I'm almost ashamed to say I was one of those people who forked over about a hundred bucks - or rather, my significant other did, as a gift to me - for one of those Heath Ledger Jokers. If I only knew they'd be on the shelves of Big Lots everywhere six months later

As for the new Batman Returns figures it really is a shame, because it's my favorite movie of all time and I'd hate to miss out. But as someone who grew up in a time when figures like that wouldn't go for any more than about $3.99 I have to prioritize a little better now. Even the retail price point is borderline offensive, "adult collector" or not.

I see they changed "some body is here to see you" for "someone is here to see you". Or maybe that was changed on the fly by Burton and co for the film. I suppose comic adaptations are written and drawn at the same time as the movie is being filmed.

Best Shot: Batman Returns & The Dark Knight.

...Or, as I call them: Catwoman (1992) --what? the names not taken since there is no other movie, none, nuh-uh, called this -- and The Joker (2008).



Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer shot by Stefan Czapsky)



The Joker (Heath Ledger shot by Wally Pfister)

Quote:
The reasons to love these two shots and pair them are legion. They're twins in every way I can think of and "Holy Split-Zygote!" does the Batman franchise ever love twins.
We're the same, split right down the center.
Two silent images in madhouse conversation.

Both images are solo shots, weird little character-beat reveries within much fussier action punctuated sequences. In fact, in lesser director's and editor's hands it's easy to imagine them left on the cutting room floor altogether as they're more visual grace notes than story beats. Both images are animalistic, the cat doubled playfully and the dog hanging out the car window to feel the breeze, the only thing missing being his tongue. Both images have no dialogue, they're just hypnotic snapshots of two actors at the peak of their gifts lost in their own inspired headspace fully inhabiting fantastical people. Perhaps most impresively, both images happen to reflect their movies and auteurs, too. Tim Burton's Batman films are a mix of pitch-black night, elaborate production design, playful flourishes and cartoonish verve... all accounted for in this image. They don't take place in the real world - notice everything swallowed by darkness behind Catwoman. There is no real world; Gotham is a soundstage. Chris Nolan's Batman films, in contrast, are a mix of late night restlessness, gritty realism, and told with a straight face and dark majesty... all acounted for in this image. The Joker may be otherworldly but he's intruding in ours; Gotham is Chicago, filmed on location.

Finally, and this is no small matter, what Michelle Pfeiffer and Heath Ledger were doing in both of these movies in roles that haven't always inspired actors or even been taken seriously by them is art, pure and simple. These star turns are film-elevating stylized tragicomedy, so highly peculiar that they could have only come from inspired character actors, so mesmerizing that they could have only come from movie stars. This Catwoman and this Joker are filled with such vivid specificity that though these roles which will surely be played by dozens more actors in the next 100 years, they will always belong to Heath and Michelle.

Remember three years ago when Hot Toys announced that they'd release Batman Returns figures? Somebody on the Batman Addicts FB group posted this. It was taken at Comic Con.

Looks like we're getting a large scale Devito Penguin from Neca also.

Correct me if I'm wrong... but wasn't there scallops on the BR suit?

It's nice, but I don't know if I'll get it, to be honest.

I used to set it up on a desk and draw it. I think I sold mine, though.
