Just a quick heads up to wish ’60s TV icons Adam West and David McCallum each a Happy Birthday. Today, Mr. West (aka TV’s “Batman”) turns 84, while Mr. McCallum (aka Man from U.N.C.L.E.’s “Illya Kuryakin”) is now 79 years young.
McCallum has already been immortalized as an “official” 1:6 scale action figure (by Gilbert Toys back in the 1960s), while West has had numerous fan-created, custom figures made resembling him (see previous article on 7/27/2012 for more information regarding that subject).
Of course, as faithful readers of The Joe Report already know, collectors of 1:6 scale action figures everywhere are eagerly awaiting the 2013 release of an OFFICIAL Adam West Batman figure created by Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles. Holy Happiness, Batman!
Both men have brought a lot of pleasure into our lives. We wish them all the best and many more HAPPY BIRTHDAYS to come!
