They Chew Bubble Gum Don't They?












The End

If you guessed this was a super obvious homage to the classic 1988 John Carpenter movie, "They Live" starring "Hot Rod" Rowdy Roddy Piper.



Not a bad figure either. I'm no sure what line he's from( My Mom works at a Habitat for Humanity thrfit store. Found it, and gave it to me.) but he's got decent articulation that wasn't quite yet DCUC.

of course i picked up on that reference that was a funny ass line. the interesting thing is when you watch that movie at an older age you realize that it's really not about an alien invasion story per se. but really it's about the comfort of conformity,consumerism and govt. and corporate control over every day people in society. i couldn't really see it back in my teens but now it's very obvious especially with scenes like Piper looking at those subliminal messages showing money and the tag line "THIS IS YOUR GOD".

I have never seen that movie. Now I'm going to have to watch it.
What is that attached to Bats?

@Shlomo: I'm definitely gonna' re-watch that one now. It truly was the definition of a cult classic, but one very well done. Hell the fight scene bewteen Piper and Keith David was the shit. The bubblegum line, in case you didn't know, actually came frm a list of phrases and one-liners Piper compilled over the years, and personally gave to director John Carpenter to see if he could use anything.
Carpenter saw the bubblegum line, and the rest is history.

@Ging: I think you'd like it Ging.
I have no idea what that thing is on Batman's back other than probably some weird Bat-gadget he came up with for whatever particular mission he was suposed to be on.

Apparently it's his "I Came here to chew bubble and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum-armor."
