Switzerland based design firm Kross Studio has teamed up with Warner Bros. to create this 1989 Batmobile X Kross Studio Desk Clock. Limited to 100 pieces, the desk clock costs a staggering $29,900. Even already knowing how much it cost I couldn’t stop myself from doing another spit-take as I typed that.
The timepiece, modeled after the Batmobile in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman movie, consists of 512 individual components, with 115 making up the Batmobile’s body and 397 in the clock’s movement. For reference, a traditional mechanical movement is typically only around 130 components. This is 267 more components! What do all those extra components do? Can it time travel? We may never know because we don’t have $29,900 to spend on a fancy Batmobile desk clock that may or may not be able to time travel.
I actually went to the purchase page and it appears there are only nine Batmobiles available at the moment. That means they’ve already sold 91 of them – $2,720,900 worth! Clearly, we’re in the wrong business. Now, let’s launch a Kickstarter for a $35,000 1989 Batwing wall clock.
Earlier this year, we learned that Spotify was teaming up with DC Comics and Warner Bros. to create a lineup of exclusive, narrative audio podcasts featuring DC characters like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. Today, Spotify announced the first ser...
Redditor morphinapg used a freeware program called Sqirlz Morph to mash together the faces of actors who have played Batman and make this composite image. The features of the man below is an even blend of Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale. Or rather an even blend of their pictures.
As some of the Redditors have mentioned, the longer you stare at the image the easier it becomes to see the different actors. Morphinapg also made an animated gif version of the image. I wonder what the result would be if we blended the faces of every human being on Earth.
While the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy is mostly his and his brother’s script work, they both draw a lot from the source material, the comic books from over the years, especially the darker, grittier ones. Maybe that’s why the Dark Knight trilogy have been going so good.
Would you be able to watch an entire feature film, say something between 90-120 minutes, in Lego? Probably not. But play a Lego video game or watch a Lego spoof of a trailer? Sure. We love that stuff, and history has taught us the Lego do Batman well.
Who’s the best comic book villain of all-time? The best villain ever, comic books or not? You’ll never get one, unified answer, but I think The Joker, Batman’s number one nemesis, will get more votes than anyone else.
