Samsung BD-P1500 With Free Matrix

Samsung BD-P1500We told you a while ago about a Limited Edition Matrix Collection that comes with Nebuchadnezzar. Samsung must have thought that was a good idea and it is tossing in the movies (sans vehicle) with the sale of their BD-P1500. The 10-disc set was released today and retails for around $100.00 depending on where you shop. We figure that’s a pretty good deal considering the Blu-ray player can be had for $223.00 up to $299.00, again dependent on online retailers. Prices are only good through October 18.

Batman Dark Knight Grappling Launcher Prop Replica

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Movies, Toys,

Dark Knight Launcher

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.
