Re: Batman Stuff You'd Never Part With...

Yep, I didn't have the ideal helmet in the 60's either. Grabbed one last year. I will be in the old folks home with it! I had the Action Boy Robin costume but no figure when I was a kid. Stuffed it with cotton. ;) One day I hope to get the Cap Action Batman and Robin...Oh, they will be mine! and nev...

Re: Aurora Batman model question

The kit really tapped the Adam West market and I think most of us painted the trunks blue. I recall I painted one of these with blue lines on the side seams and black in the center. Years later when I painted my little bust of Adam as Batman, I painted it like an inked comic image. I had an intense ...

Re: Ultimate cowls!

I was running numbers in my head and after seeing similarities in the trimming of the fiberglass shells and various cowls. I realized that when Jan Kemp said they made dozens of cowls, he meant covers, not shells. Three cowls (and shells) we all know. The Hardeman, The Azarian and The "Alfred" cowls...

Ultimate cowls!

Hi All, The first batch of Ultimate Cowls are shipping this coming week and I just wanted to thank all the collectors that made this image possible!! It's my belief this is probably close to the amount of shells created for the run of the show. We see 6 in the first season in one shot during Mr. Fre...

Re: Ultimate cowl #3 of 30 ,reporting for duty!

I believe it was the same shell with different trimming in the front.
The cover fabric is the same with different ears and paint.

Re: Ultimate cowl #3 of 30 ,reporting for duty!

Thanks Andy!!! :) Here's a new shot that shows just how assymetrical this is and also just how faithful this shell is. Keeping in mind different angles, lens distortion, the fact that I can't squish the face in there and two subtly different paint jobs, I'm feeling pretty excited with this! Even the...

Thanks Ben!!

I'm pretty happy with the Cosplay Cowl.
It seems to fit darn near everyone and is what I think most people expect.
Smooth, symmetry and professionally finished.

What I see most is the larger eyes based on the Hardeman cowl.
Those first season eyes are surprisingly small.
