Miscellaneous content: Amitron Batman Forever Watch

I won't be doing a video review but here's a few photos of the Amitron watch that I picked up on eBay. There were a couple of these released with various designs - along with several plastic ones. I figured an adult can just about get away with wearing this one - it looks grown up enough from a distance.

And while we're on the topic of watches here's a a random article from The Quarterly Watches looking at the prop watch that was used in the film - a Jaeger-LeCoultre - apparently. I've zoomed in but the text is still very small and hard to read.

I'm not sure what they are on about with the flipping mechanism. I guess that wasn't featured in the film and is only part of the promotional ones they made for the film release. I've got to say it's really great that they went to the extra effort of illustrating the scene from the film for this spread.

Magazine article: Comics Scene Presents Batman and Other Dark Heroes Part 2

Part 2 of this magazine has brief interviews with Val Kilmer, Chris O'Donnell, Jim Carrey but NOT Tommy Lee Jones (who probably wasn't interested in puff piece editorials like this).

Magazine article: Comics Scene Presents Batman and Other Dark Heroes Part 1

This particular magazine seems to be another off- shoot of Starlog. First up there's a very long interview with Bob Kane who has alot to say about the new movie including wanting to see Tom Cruise play the lead role (!) and being glad that Robin didn't end up being played by Marlon Wayans (!).

Batman Forever Merchandise Review - Batman head Batcave mini playset by Kenner

Probably my 2nd favourite piece of merchandise from the movie (after the Bruce Wayne figure). I absolutely love this mini playset and have recently picked up the Batmobile playset so I'll be reviewing that too in the near future.
