Re: Matty Cowl Mod

On a side note, it took me 3 days to get the re-paint to look right (removing the old markings, trying to hide what was left, adding several coats of black, and some very light and I mean light sanding with 300 grit, then repainting the markings)

Re: Matty Cowl Mod

Chuck, I was not aware they (Mattell) used one of your cowls when they designed theirs. If this is so, then it really puzzles me as to why the markings on the face were so off. I agree with batrunner, your cowls are absolutely beautiful, but at this time out of my price range, so my Matty cowl will ...

Re: Dick Van Patten dies at 86

So sad to see these people from our childhood passing on. Did anybody not love Tom Bradford? Farewell Dick. R.I.P. and thanks for the memories.

Re: 1966 batmobile

I never got to sit in a batmobile. I was lucky enough though to meet Adam, in costume mind you, back in the late 80's in Green Bay, so I'm happy. Welcome to the forum. Lots of great people and information here.

Re: My first outing as the Batman. Sorta..(question about sm

I agree with RRR. I wouldn't do it either. Too much money and too many careless people in a bar, especially after a few beers. It only takes a second for someone to beer stain a cape, or god forbid, ANY cowl! You will regret it afterwards.

Re: My Boy Wonder's stunt suit

I have to agree with Chuck here, I would have killed for something like this when I was a kid also, Although, I did have the Ben Cooper costume. No idea after all these years what happened to it.

I agree. I would have loved to see a more scale looking cave. Still nice to see the original brought back though.

Got my eyebrows off this afternoon and first coat of paint is on. This shouldn't be too bad.
