The summer of 1995 brought the release of the movie "Batman Forever".
Batman Forever's release timing couldn't be more perfect for me.
My birthday is in July so the release of the latest "Bat-movie" means plenty of Bat-merchandise is available for gifts.
That is why I have this gem.
A nice birthday card and a "Hey I saw this and thought I would pick it up for you!". Sweet!
I love those kinda things.
Somebody thought of me and knew that their gift would make me smile.
This guy is still unopened.
I think you buy this kinda thing for a kid to take a bath with or for a goober like me who just enjoys strange things, especially if it is Batman related.
I won't bath with it. I just hold on to it for 14 years and say "Do you have one of these in your collection?" "I do!".
Apparently they had other Bat-characters available in soap form as well.
Batman, in his soap form, has taken a beating while in storage.
His nose is no longer pointy but is smashed.
Grime fighting aint pretty.
The soap has great detail though.
Only through the magic of Photoshop will my Bat-soap see the tub.
