Father Builds Child-Sized Batpod For His Kids, Should Probably Avoid Going To The Movies For A Few Years [Video]

eE48v's experimental Batpod

Listen, I understand wanting to do nice things for your kids, and that's great, but I have to imagine that as a parent, the absolute last thing you want to do is give your children something that makes them more like Batman. You know what that dude's origin is, right? You know how his parents end up, right? I mean, I'm just an uncle, and I can assure you that I have never once attempted to give my nephews any advice about power and responsibility, just in case.

But alas, my thoughts on self-preservation come too late for one father, who has gone out of his way to give his kids one of the Batman's's wonderful toys: an "experimental electric vehicle" that is a straight up child-sized Batpod from The Dark Knight.

The Comics Alliance Collection: Cool Stuff We (And You) Got This Week

Screen-Shot-2014-03-08-at-12.10.17-PM

The ComicsAlliance staff is a diverse lineup writers, editors, artists, photographers and designers, but before we’re any of those things we’re simply fans. Appreciators. Collectors. Almost every day we share with each other via Instagram all the great books, toys, artwork, apparel, and other beautiful and/or inescapably cool objects we collect almost ceaselessly in comics stores, at conventions, and from all kinds of sources all over North America (and sometimes beyond). Displaying (i.e. showing off) some rad swag typically inspires everyone to one-up their pop-archeologist game in the never ending quest to find awesome stuff, and simply posting the week’s new comics usually causes someone to discover a new title or artist, which in turn inspires a whole new line of excavation.

In the past we’ve published photos of our “con hauls” here on CA and the resulting discussion with readers — i.e. collector kudos — has always been fun, so with the ComicsAlliance Collection we’re going to do it every week. But more importantly, we want to see your collection too. Show us new additions to your collections by using the hashtag #CAcollection on Instagram or tag us @ComicsAlliance and we’ll embed the best stuff alongside our own recent acquisitions.

Toy Review: The ‘Attack On Titan’ Colossal Titan Nendoroid Action Figure [Video]

Attack on Titan Nendoroid review

Every weekend here at CA we’re cracking open the latest and/or just greatest action figures around to see what sets them apart from the articulated plastic pack. This week we’re unboxing Good Smile Company's Colossal Titan Nendoroid from Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga and anime adaptation. We were intrigued when the toy was initially announced, and picked one up to see if it could measure up to the man-eating expectations it promised as not only a standalone figure, but also a toy packed with a suitably sizable environment ripe for the smashing (and simulated eating). You can watch our full review after the jump to see what we thought of the new figure.

DC Collectibles

DC Comics may be concluding its New 52 Teen Titans series next month, but the characters live on through DC Collectibles, which will be releasing action figure versions of Wonder Girl, Superboy, Kid Flash and the newly revealed Red Robin. What's more, they've also let loose Arsenal from Red Hood and the Outlaw's wildly unique action feature -- the action figure can spin its ballcap backwards to fully embody the character's Poochie-like idiom.

NECA’s 1/4 Scale ‘Arkham Origins’ Figure Could Be The Beefiest Batman Toy Yet

Batman Arkham Origins Batman 1-4 Scale NECA
NECA

We've been seeing an increasing number of 1/4 scale figures from the likes of Enterbay and Hot Toys, but NECA's new Batman: Arkham Origins figure may be the beefiest take on the Caped Crusader so far -- even moreso than its Batman '89 and Batman '66 offerings. Standing at an intimidating 18" tall, the toy may even be able to serve as a home security option. Surely no superstitious and cowardly home invader could get past a grapnel gun-armed Batman the size of a toddler.

Marvel Is Giving Out The Watcher’s Eyeballs To Promote ‘Original Sin,’ Still Less Creepy Than That Beer Valiant Made In The ’90s

Marvel's Bouncy Eyeballs and Tom Brevoort

Promotional items always add a little something extra to the experience when you head over to the comic book store on Wednesdays. They're just fun, whether it's as simple as a bookmark or something on the level of those Green Lantern rings that DC gave out a few years ago. Or, you know, the Watcher's eyeball, ripped out of his head and missing since his bloody murder. That's pretty fun, too.

And that's exactly what Marvel's giving out to promote May's Original Sin event by Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato Jr., in the form of rubber high-bouncing balls designed to look like the eyes of Uatu -- Eyes that have seen so many crucial moments of the Marvel Universe before winding up in the hands of Senior Vice President Tom Brevoort, as seen above.

The New Movie ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Crouch For Cakes

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Live Action Movie Cake Toppers main

Photos of toys from the new, Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Liebesman-directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie have been hard to come by, considering all the heavy security at Toy Fair 2014 last month.

So it looks like, at least for now, we're just going to have to settle for the cake topper versions of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael. Are you ready to see some plastic turtles who are wearing shoes? Click on through.

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Even Higher With A Revoltech Version Of ‘The Bat’

Revoltech The Bat
Kaiyodo

Though it's not in scale with Kaiyodo's The Dark Knight action figure from 2010, the Revoltech version of The Dark Knight Rises vehicles looks like it still packs plenty of Christian Bale-iciousness into its compact size. With eight points of articulation, a detachable cockpit canopy and a mini (nonposable) Batman nestled inside, it may actually move around more than Batman's crazy multi-copter did in the movie.
