At New York Comic Con last week, I was pleasantly surprised when I checked out the Diamond Select Toys booth. (Click here.) There, in all its red glory, was a ’66 Batphone replica:
How cool is that? I mean, the name of this column is BATMAN’S HOT-LINE!
The replica — based on the Batphone in the Batmobile — is actually a bank, like the Shakespeare bust that’s due out this winter. (Click for more on that.)
Now, it’s often tough to get good photos at a show like NYCC because of the lighting and the glare off the glass. So, here for the first time, citizens, you can check out the unencumbered prototype pix — including what the Batphone looks like when it’s off the hook:
The Batphone, made of sturdy vinyl, will be solicited later this month at $29.99.
Holy Ma Bell!
