75 Years of Batman

18 October 2014

It's not a big secret that I am a big BatFan. Not only is he my favorite superhero, he's also one of my favorite fictional characters of all time.

Last week, we had a fun Justice League-themed party to promote Shakey's Power Party Packages (more info about this here on my blog soon), and of course I dressed the part by wearing my favorite Batman top and Batman hat I had customized a couple of years ago. I was called Miss BatGirl lots of times that day. ^_^ After the party, my friends and I went to SM North EDSA and as the escalator to the second floor of The Block went up I was surprised to see a huge exhibit set up there for Batman's 75th Anniversary! I squealed in delight!


Warner Bros. Consumer Products, DC Entertainment, and SM Supermalls worked together to bring us this exhibit. There were a lot of posters, toys, and merchandise on display that I almost went crazy because I didn't know where to start looking!


I wish I have more photos, but the toys were put inside a glass case and I was just using my phone so the reflection on the glass didn't make for good visuals.


If only I have Bruce Wayne's money, I would've bought a piece each from all the items available for sale. There were shirts, jackets, toys, and even lunch boxes and tumblers! But I didn't, so I settled in buying just one top instead. Buying P700 worth of merchandise gets you a limited edition 75 years of Batman cap, while P500 worth of purchase gives you a chance to have the Batmobile Experience and see the very first Batmobile Hologram in the Philippines! I didn't want to leave my friends and make them wait for me so I didn't consider that option anymore.

Nevertheless, Batmobile Experience or not, I really love the vintage comics-inspired graphic top that went home with me!

Not gonna lie, I love receiving gifts in the mail. Even more so when they come bearing the Batman logo! These came the other day:

75 years of Batman commemorative cap, shirt, and mug
The print on the back of the shirt and mug bears the various logos The Batman has had through the years
The Batmobile Experience will be in SM North EDSA - The Block Atrium until tomorrow only so make sure to drop by!

For the Caped Crusader's fans who live too far away, don't worry because they will also visit SM BF Paranaque and SM San Lazaro! SM Store and Toy Kingdom will also be having their Batman 75th in-store promos until November 1. ^_~

And now I just want to share some of my favorite Batman loot I have accumulated through the years.

The Forensic Files of Batman by Doug Moench and The Art and Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy
I love books, movies, and books about movies so the latter is a sure winner!

Office supplies don't have to be boring! Superhero paper clips from my friend Chum
A BatGirl Krissy sketch my former officemate Marco made for me
Aaand me and my Batman Waldorf doll from Dolldalita Dollshop
I wish I can say I made it, but no.
The Batman shirt is a gift from my friend Ed.
Among others I also have The Batman Begins book, a Batman LEGO, and another shirt with a slightly smaller Batman logo given to me by my friend Anne. Yes, my friends are total enablers.

Are you a BatFan, too? If not, why not? who's your favorite superhero?
