“Winged battle flies through the night, and finds me…READY.”
During these unpredictable times, many of us have spare moments to peruse the dark corners of the internet. For me, I enjoy going to retail sites, typing “Batman”, and embarking on a journey.
Usually, my adventures take me through apparel, books, movies, LEGO, and various other Dark Knight items. Recently, I found myself going to the DC Shop and doing my usual browsing, not expecting any surprises. Then, low and behold, I scroll down to see BATMAN BATWING POSEABLE DESK LAMP.
“Why didn’t somebody tell me he had one of those…THINGS?!”
- Can stand up to 23.5 inches
- USB powered (with 9ft cable)
- Composed of BDP (Breakdown Plastic) but looks like sleek metal
- LED light
- Will make you want to play with the Batwing
I don’t have any sort of knowledge on desk lamps or what the best brand or anything is, and I don’t know that many of you care. Basically, the question here is whether or not it’s worth it the $50.00 price tag?
With its mobility, the lamp can fit any space you so desire and present a pretty bright light to boot. The Batwing itself can be freely adjusted to focus the light anywhere you want it.
2 Small Quibbles:
By small, I mean tiny.
First, for the lamp to be so mobile, it also feels a little loose. In no way have I feared it will tip over or anything, given its sturdy bass (Meghan Trainor was right, it’s all about the bass). It just feels a little loose when adjusting it.
Second — and I know this isn’t accurate to the movie or anything — but it’d have been awesome if it somehow could have projected a Batsignal!
Other than that, I have no qualms with this purchase. It was a nice change of pace to spend my money on something Batman-related that wasn’t a movie, TV series, comic, or book. Instead, I have another addition to my Batcave that is as unique as my (see above, right) #Batshelf (that’s for you Peter Verra). – Ryan Lower
