These are a pair of Batman symbol wall bookshelves crafted by Etsy Seller Fahmi Sani of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He was selling them in his shop a week ago for around $ 285, but he got such a response that he’s pulled them from his store while he fulfills his current orders. And you know what that means! “It’s time to jump on Etsy and start sell our own really shitty version ASAP.” You know it! You get started on the Etsy shop, I’ll be in the garage chopping all my fingers off with a jigsaw.

Now make Harley Quinn pole-dancing on a toilet brush.
This is a custom Batman toilet paper holder made by Redditor conrick. He stands 31-inches tall and only dispenses the good stuff. None of that newsprint toilet paper you can still read the headlines on. I dunno though, I still think it’s kind of degrading. There’s got to be a better way to honor Gotham’s greatest superhero than letting him know what your ass smells like.
Thanks to my buddy Terry, who told me his toilet paper actually catches fire on the regular. You disgust me.
These are limited edition $ 325 Batman and Bane wristwatches from Diesel. I’m gonna be honest, for that price I kinda expected the Batman one to come with a mini-grappling hook and the Bane one to come with…I dunno, an explosives detonator or something. God, could you imagine how embarrassed Lucius Fox would be if Batman were caught running around wearing a wristwatch? You’re entire superhero-ness depends on gadgets and gizmos, Bruce! You need a laser that shoots the time directly into your eyeball or something. Now if you’ll excuse me… Psst, Lucius — did you finish designing that thing you and I talked about? “The sonic buttplug?” HAHA, WHAT?! Noooooooooo. Jesus bro, not so loud.
This is a video from a submersible surveying underwater cable routes a half-mile beneath the ocean’s surface when it spots Batman. Well, not Batman himself, probably just the latest Bat-Sub that Lucius Fox designed for him. What’s he doing down there? Your guess is as good as mine. Unless you guessed banging mermaids, in which case yours is better (mine was crabbing).

The Nokia Lumia 900 The Dark Knight Rises Edition handset has made its way on the interwebs recently and it’s nothing short of a beauty, with a black polycarbonate unibody frame and a laser-etched Batman logo across the back. Moreover, the phone — which is usually limited to either a black or white background and a handful of color themes like Nokia blue, teal, lime, mango, and pink — will also come with a black and grey theme.
Of course, plenty of Dark Knight Rises content will come pre-loaded as well, including a game called Claim Gotham City and the Dark Knight Rises app. We had gotten a glimpse of the phone in what appears to be official press shots (or renders) a few days ago, but the first hands-on photos of the phone have surfaced, courtesy of Phonerpt.
Take a look:
Now, the Lumia 900 Batphone is far from the first Batman/Nokia collaboration to date. After a little light research, I’ve learned that there are quite a few Nokia batphones out in the world.
Here’s a brief image-tastic history of Nokia’s obsession with Batman:Nokia 5800 XpressMedia
In 2008, a now-incredibly famous movie hit the silver screen. You may have heard of it: The Dark Knight. It featured Heath Ledger as the Joker, who tragically died before the movie was ever released. But it also featured another shining star known as the Nokia 5800 XpressMedia. The phone appeared in the trailer for the movie and was then blogged by dozens of tech sites. It was the first touchscreen phone Nokia put on the market, complete with stylus and three home buttons. It was nicknamed the Tube, and ended up in a handful of music videos including Britney Spears’ “Womanizer”, Flo Rida’s “Right Round”, and Cobra Starship’s “Good Girls Go Bad”.

Then, in June of the same year, Nokia realized the potential of putting actual Batman imagery and design language on the phone itself, and came out with the Nokia 6205 Dark Knight edition. It was a basic flip phone, with a flash-enabled camera and tons of pre-loaded Batman content like ringtones and wallpapers. It had a Batman home screen background, along with a Batman icon along the back of the solid black (rather sleek) flip phone. Verizon sold the device, along with a white version for non-Batman fans.

Also in 2008, a Finnish Nokia designer named Heikki Juvonen came up with this concept design, likely piggy backing off of the hype from the 5800′s cameo in The Dark Knight. It’s now known as the Nokia Batman Concept Style N19, and it’s said to have a “futuristically transparent” display. There’s no list price for it, nor is there any spec sheet. Essentially, it’s an awkwardly-designed feature phone inspired almost entirely by Batman, from the wing-esque keypad section to the black and goldish coloring.

About a year later, Shenzhen picked up on the trend. So, this isn’t necessarily Nokia’s obsession with Batman, but rather Nckla‘s (think Prado instead of Prada). This phone hit the web in June of 2009, and seemed to be the lovechild of a Spider-Man fan and a Batman fan. It came in both black versions, and white with red and blue trim. Along the back there is a large Batman symbol, which is a part of the loudspeaker, and the small speaker on the front is also emblazoned with a Batman icon. The phone also happens to light up in blue and red.

Fast forward a couple years, and you’ll find the Nokia Lumia 800 Dark Knight Rises smartphone. It’s nearly identical to the 900 Dark Knight Rises, but without the big brother’s LTE connectivity, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, and front-facing camera.

Note: I feel like I’m near death today guys (just in time for a holiday weekend!), so bear with me. At one point this morning I even saw the light at the end of the tunnel. It…looked like flames.
This is a series of sketches from Italian artist Denis Medri of Batman characters reimagined as rockabilly ones from the 1950′s. Let’s all go to the sock hop and cut a rug or whatever! Then we can swing by the soda fountain for a root beer float. No? You just want to make out in the back of my dad’s Chevy at Makeout Point? WELL NO THANKS. My parents raised me right so I’m saving myself for marriage somebody more attractive.
Hit the jump for a bunch more characters, most of which capture the 50′s better than this one but how am I not gonna put Batman on the cover of a Batman related post? He’d batarang me in the nuts!
The high res video shows Batman battling some of his fiercest foes. From the terrifying Killer Croc to the demented Joker, fans will get a glimpse into the macabre underworld of Gothams Arkham Asylum for the criminally insane. Video Rating: 4 / 5Related Posts:
This is a recently-inked tattoo by artist/Geekologie Reader Adam M. based on a painting of the same design by Alex Ross (links to picture on Alex’s website). Damn, I didn’t know Batman’s back looked that bad. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a crush on him, it’s just, I dunno, I’m not sure I could shower with him now.
Thanks Adam, remind me to give you a holler when I get my next dino tat (I’m already up to number eight!).
Spoiling the dramatic reveal of just how Batman is able to put so much detail work into his DrawSomething art, EntertainmentWeekly’s latest print issue has hit newsstands with some new photos (since scanned by Batman-News) from The Dark Knight Rises. Have a look below.Related Posts:
