Batman Forever Merchandise Review - Movie Stickers from Topps

I've covered the Panini Sticker Album that was released in the UK on the site in the past but I also picked up a couple of boxes of the Topps stickers that came out in the US off eBay. 

Thankfully it did contain a full set of the main 88 stickers (though I still have a couple of chrome stickers outstanding - as well as the album itself).

There's a couple of interesting "Schumacher Cut" shots in here that's worth seeing (and that I've covered before) but otherwise no great shakes. Probably for die hard fans only.

Podcast round-up: Batminute & All Star Superfan podcasts

I've been so snowed under with other work this year that I completely forgot to post here the multiple podcasts I've guested on.

First up I returned to the Batminute podcast with Niall McGowan and Jonfen Parker earlier this year talking about three minutes of the 1997 Batman & Robin movie. The toyetic sections covered was the bit when the heroes turn up in their silver suits and ice vehicles while Gotham freezes. 

Here's the links:-

I was also invited onto a special (non-Superman related) episode of the All Star Superfan Podcast with Rob O'Connor and Alan Burke to talk about all the previous Batman movies before dissecting the latest Matt Reeves' movie The Batman. More than a few juicy stories got spilled here, not least the time I was an extra on the set of Batman Begins. 

Here's the link:-

Both these podcasts are very much worth your time (even the episodes where I'm not guesting) and are well worth subscribing to or catching up with.
