In Just 7 Days...

...Kelly Delcambre can make you a (Bat)man!

Not exactly Charles Atlas, but I appreciate Kelly "beefing" up my Adam mannequin to make him look more like what we've come to know our hero to be. Thanks Kelly!

NEXT: At the Hollywood Museum...

Coming to the Hollywood Museum sometime this fall...The World's Finest Five exhibit! It's a fan-fantasy-inspired exhibit featuring our favorite super-actors assembled together in a "what if" scenario. This is the cast we've always wanted to see together! Stay tuned for more.

Re: Batman Hawaiian Shirt

The blue cotton fabric I bought for the side inserts and collar is so fantastic I bought the rest of the bolt from Joann's. So if anyone needs a few yards of it for their "upgrade" let me know. The color of the fabric matches the color of Batman's cape (as pictured on the shirt) perfectly! It really...

Re: ATTENTION: San Diego Comic Con goers...

We found Victor Buono's lifemask in the Planet of the Apes section of the Hollywood Museum, and Donelle Dadigan was kind enough to let us "repurpose" a copy of it for a new Tut figure. He will live in the Batcave set of the Batman exhibit until it closes at the end of September, and then be installe...

Re: An impor-TUT discovery!

Foam latex that old would have been much too brittle to remove. Luckily Jim said it was some sort of urethane.

An impor-TUT discovery!

The other day at the Hollywood Museum, they let my effects guy Jim Ojala and I inspect the Victor Buono displays in the "Planet of the Apes" exhibit. When we removed the mutant prosthetic...who do you think we found underneath??? On the back of one of the busts, someone had written "Victor Bruno." D...

Re: Batman Hawaiian Shirt

Yes, they run a little small. I bought an XL and it fits fine. But when we customized them to Hawaiian bowling shirt style, they fit better. Here are a few shots of my pal Mark and I wearing our "bowling shirt-ized" Batman Hawaiian shirts. If anyone would like theirs customized, my seamstress is pre...

Re: Adam West Batman Exhibtion Opening in September In Walla Walla!

A great idea! While the Hollywood Museum exhibit focused on the 1966 series as a whole, it will be nice to have something geared more specifically toward Adam. Well done!

Re: Just dreaming...

Yup, that's the plan. When extending we'll be looking into pre-66 as well as modern day. Stay tuned!

Re: Just dreaming...

Thanks Batrunner. Doing anything printed is a rights issue, and being a not-for-profit the museum simply can't afford licensing fees like that. We reached out to both Commisar and Azarian initially, but neither wished to participate. No room for a Bat Boat or Batcopter, but we do have the original B...
