Anyone know what was used to make the Bat-Respirator?

Post by BiffPow »

With the topic of the “oxygen mask“ McFarlane Batman and Robin figures, I started digging a little more deeply into the respirator prop. To me, both major components look like some sort of in-line filters, maybe fuel or air filters of some sort, with slots cut out of the larger one and mesh lines attached.

I thought I had been helpful identifying the 007 toy dart pistol used as the basis for the Catwoman gun, but it turns out Chuck had previously recognized it and apparently posted somewhere about it. So, before I do too much digging, let me just ask if somebody on the board has already identified these items. 🤣

Not me. I made a very accurate prop from these pictures, but I never knew what it was constructed from. My best guess is it was made from scratch. The mouthpiece just looked like fiberglass and the mouth ring to bite down on was awkward. Also, the chrome tube cut outs looked hand done to me.

My two cents.
