Re: Lewis Wilson BATMAN Fans?

Hi Chuck, Always happy to help out. You have helped us out with your expertise so many times. I was trying to do a comparison of Johnny's Cape and Kirk Alyn's Superman cape. I know Kirk's costume was a light Blue/gray (why some say Gray some Blue) and the Cape a brick red leaning towards the brown s...

Re: Lewis Wilson BATMAN Fans?

chuck, Johnny told me back in '97 when I worked with him that his Vest was Red/ Maroon just like you have it. His gloves and boots were also the same color. The gloves were electrical / welding gloves with the gantlets added and the boots were hand made to fit his feet. He said the boots were the mo...

Re: 1949 Robin Vest Replica

That is so cool Chuck. And I know the color is spot on from the conversation I had with Johnny about his Costume. We presented him with an archery set when we paled around with him back in '97and the color of the quiver we gave him was very close to his Robin vest he remarked. Great Piece can't wai...

Re: The Phantom

Larry, Yes The Phantom's Captain Action Costume has been re-issued. It was by Playing Mantis when they had the license. Also there have been several Phantom Halloween costumes over the years, most by Collegeville. The rarest one being the late 1950's version. I have most in my collection, with the ...

Re: New Variants from Figures Toy line-- Surf's Up!

I really Love their stuff. Here they have gone to great lengths to get the details in the baggies, surfboards, and other costumes correct. It's a shame they can not seem to get the Jokers coat, vest and pants right. :shock: I did forego the Mattel line and decided to go with these instead, they did ...

Re: Batarang

COPPRODUCTIONS, Thank you . I'm glad you enjoyed the photos of my Batarangs. My PROP AKA Publicity Batarang does not have any marks on it other than the hole for the Batrope and a small pin hole for hanging on the prop room wall. My Best guess is that the rectangle was a magnet or something similar ...

Re: Batarang

Hi All , I thought I would re-post this photo from an earlier one on the old board. Here is a picture of my reproduction Batarangs and my original TV show used prop I purchased it from Burt Ward back in 1997. The second photo is of my friend Randy posing with it and Burt. You can see it was used in ...

Re: Scarecrow of Romney Marsh WIP

Great Job Chuck. The most accurate one I've ever seen. Looks like you got it down right to the Champagne straw used for the hair. I know the mask was made from a British dish Towel and the hair was Champagne packing straw from an interview with the costume designer I found in the Disney archives. Re...

Re: Looking for info on the Batnoculars

I am absolutely certain that I have the right kind of mini binoculars for a base. And as you can see, the yellow faceplate does, indeed, reflect on the chrome lens tubes, making them appear yellow or gold, while the rim around the lens still looks silver, as the posted screen grabs look. Cheers! RR...

Rats! I'm not much of a download guy at all. I'd prefer a DVD copy. Same here. I like having something in my hand for the money and i always seem to get corrupted files with the download thing. Just not big into it. I tried to load the youtube preview several times and it would not work, keep getti...

Re: Looking for info on the Batnoculars

The batnoculars are almost certainly built on a style of mini binocular that was extremely popular - and had many knockoffs - before, during, and after World War II. They show up pretty frequently on eBay. The originals, I believe, were a product of the company that later became Nikon. Actually the...

Re: 1943 batman serial

Johnny Is in poor health and has emphysema. It is very hard for him to get around these days.
Johnny does have a website and you can email him also purchase photos from him.

Coming Soon Another '66 Bat-Sculpture

Hi Guys,
Just got this from our friends at Factory Entertainment. do not know the final size and I hope the likeness is better. Could be an addition to the BatCave. The 1st Appearance statues are a variation of the bobble head theme and could prove interesting too. Enjoy.
