Brett's Worthless Tat #3: Batman Promotional Catalogue 1989
Here we have a foldout catalogue depicting some of the crappy merchandise available when Tim Burton's Batman flick was about to hit the cinemas way back in '89. I picked this up (during a visit to the States, where I was lucky enough to catch a preview screening of the film with a couple of hundred other bat-fans) because it was a free keepsake. I wasn't actually going to shell out my hard earned cash for any promotional bat-tat, although the rhinestone jacket does look mighty tempting—a bargain at only $499.95 (which is probably a couple of grand in today's money).
Click the pics to check out the catalogue in detail—and be sure to look out for A Nightmare On Elm Street's Heather Langenkamp sporting some natty batty cycle gear.
