Vinyl Idolz: 1960’s Batman


With the recent passing of Yyvone Craig, it's somewhat fitting that Vinyl Sugar has announced her inclusion (as Batgirl) in their upcoming Vinyl Idolz: 1960's Batman Series. In addition to Batgirl, there's (of course) Batman and Robin. And since they need an enemy, they've included the Joker. It's pretty amazing how even with the cartoonish spin, they've gotten the figures to look quite similar to their 1960's television portrayers. Look for the entire series to be available in October 2015.

REVIEW: Distressed Baby Sperel



It was way back in 2011 when I featured Orion Spellman’s (or Orion Sperelman) Sperel plush in a toy review. At the time, they were touting the “Save The Sperels” campaign…which went something like – “adopt one of these endangered Sperels and give it a good home”.

Well, those original Sperels appear to be entirely adopted out. And the last four years must have been filled with copious amounts of Sperel breeding (there’s no National Geographic footage of this, luckily), as Orion is back with a new line of Baby Sperels.


The Baby Sperel plushie flock #002 consists of baby Sperels with three distinct personality types: Sadness, Distress, and Stubbornness. How can you tell which is which? Well, it’s all in the eyes. But be careful, because sadness and distress look very similar (there is a slight difference, though). We're looking at the Distressed Baby Sperel in this review.


Measuring in at 6-inches in height, the babies are 3-inches shorter than the original. They’re also a little slimmer, as they haven’t hit Sperel puberty. And, of course, the wings are much larger.

Those wings can actually wrap around the Sperel, and there’s a button that will fasten the two wings together. So you have the option of either secure, pupal-like Sperel or his unfurled, bat-like brethren.


My kids actually thought the Sperel plush was supposed to be a bat. It makes sense. The little blue guy with the crazy red hair looks like the lovechild of Skull the Troll (from Scott Kurtz’s PvP), a vampire bat, and a wild-haired troll doll.
