We had to pay homage to “The Dark Knight” release today and thought that the Grappling Launcher seemed appropriate. The 12-inch prop replica is 6 x 7 x 12-inches and is hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain. Mounted on a display base, the Limited Edition of 1500 included a Certificate of Authenticity and comes in its own fancy box for £89.99 (~$180.00) with free delivery. We suspect that anything coming out of this movie will be a decent collector’s item and worth the expense.

Mobiado has released the Camo, a top of the line cellie for the outdoorsy type. The cami design is hand-painted, so you know that its Limited Edition of 200 isn’t made for the masses. The phone is made of an anodized aluminum shell with stainless steel buttons and a 65k display with a 208 x 208 pixel res. It also features tri-band GSM, Bluetooth support, video streaming, music player and FM, and a 1.3 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash. Contact Mobiado for price and availability details. We just want to know, if a Camo gets lost in the woods and rings, does it still make a sound?
