Jakks Pacific BIG FIG Series 19" Batman (Silver Age)

With so many outfits the Batman has donned in the last fifty years, including the numerous modern incarnations, the last thing I thought I'd see was a classic Silver Age handling of the character on toy shelves this year. Sometimes a new franchise on a character will see evergreen lines in classic deco however, so it makes sense with this 19" Jakks Pacific Batman in in the weeks before the forthcoming Batman v Superman motion picture debuting in March. Still, I was unaware of this BIG FIG Series arrival, and surprised to find Batman and a classic Flash at Walmart this morning. A quick internet search promised a classic Superman as well, which makes me wonder if we'll see Aquaman and Green Lantern. Check out my video:

Pepsi Super Series Superman & Flash Tumblers, 1976

Some superhero and popular entertainment themed tumblers like these were fixtures of my youth during the '70s and '80s, and in recent years received a nice set of Marvel tumblers I treasure. My pal Mary gave me these two Pepsi Super Series Superman & Flash tumblers from 1976 this past New Year's Eve, inherited from a family friend some years back. I'm unsure if I had these two particular tumblers, but the Flash glass seems very familiar! These were in mint condition, and a greatly appreciated gift!
