Rare Batman Movie Memorabilia Listing ( 2012 )
A list of rare, strange, valuable (and sometimes ridiculously priced) Batman collectors items!
Batman has been a favorite of comic book fans and movie-goers all over the globe for a long time since it`s conception. There are a lot of self-proclaimed `serious` Batman memorabilia collectors out there who have access to various treasure-troves of Batman toys, figures, games, props and models. Batman Lego products are all the rave nowadays. However, if you`ve ever considered yourself to be a die-hard fan or follower of the series but don`t currently own any of the items on this list; you might want to re-evaluate your status.
Ownership of any of the following items listed below will prove once and for all who`s a real cape-and-cowl fan, and who`s just a wanna be.
This list is still being generated and you can find a full listing of items here; but if you know of anything that falls under the categories of; Batman, rare, valuable, expensive, strange and limited edition that isn`t on this list - feel free to contact me for a lens update.
The Year of the Bat?
With the release of last years highly successful Batman: Arkham City video game for PS3 and Xbox; as well as the much anticipated "Batman: The Dark Knight Rises" release coming up in the next few weeks; it looks like our boy Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale as well) has had quite a few chances to sit back on his yacht while sipping martinis and watching his bank account get fatter.
And it looks like this is just the beginning. The Year of the Bat is about to hit full swing; so now might be the perfect time to dust off your old 1983 Batman movie collectors cards and post them up on eBay!

So you thought you were a hardcore Batman fan? Think again...
Collecting Batman goods and movie memorabilia has been a hobby for many over over the past 72 years since the first comic book was printed. We`ve seen The Bat and Boy Wonder in many sticky situations, both onscreen and in print. A lot of people have been satisfied to take home some of the standard keepsakes of Bruce Wayne`s adventures to add to their "wall of trophies".
But in my opinion; anybody can collect comics, action figures and Lego blocks! Not too much of a challenge there since those items are highly accessible and can be picked up at your local Toys `R` Us for under 10 dollars a pop.
No, no and NO! If you want to consider yourself a real Batman fan and memorabilia connoisseur; you`ve got to go for the best stuff! If you`re going to go, either Go Hard or don`t go at all!
There`s a huge difference in having a ferocious stuffed squirrel mounted above the fireplace or having the head of a mighty grizzly bear staring down at your friends, colleagues and acquaintances during a high-class social gathering. Which item is more worthy of praise and glory? The bear of course! That`s what we`re looking at here.
So unless you happen to find yourself in possession of any of the following Batman collector`s items; which are properly displayed on your wall or on the desk in your study room; consider yourself officially demoted to Amateur Squirrel Hunter in the arena of Batman goods collecting.
