My source must be off then; sorry if I mislead you guys.

I honestly thought my source of info was on the money.

At least we haven't heard that she DOESN'T want to license out her likeness, negotiations are still ongoing.

I've said this on another thread but here I go:

Yes, Yvonne has been approached. Yes, she is very interested in licensing her likeness. But as of yet, they have not offered a deal that makes any sense or least fair so there is nothing currently going into production with her likeness. Until that time, any Batgirl stuff coming out is either just the costume, a non Yvonne specific illustration of Batgirl or a generic comic oriented Batgirl.

Trust me. I'll let you know when the green light says "GO."

Scott, thanks for the update.

Is Yvonne asking for equal or more than what Adam West is paid?

If she waits too long, they might not want to make a Batgirl once sales plateau.

I just sent her an email asking about it. I hope to get a reply.

If I do, you people will know about it after I do.

That is my concern as well. Who knows how long this merchandising blitz will last? Toys are often planned in assortments, not by single characters. Once the majority of characters are produced, licensees may be less than inclined to produce a Batgirl as an addendum to the line.

I hope the train has not already left the station without her. :cry:

I can't talk figures at all but if you heard the offers proposed so far you'd hit your head against the desk and say you wouldn't let them do your own likeness for so little. It just doesn't make sense.

If the opportunity is missed, then it's DC/WB's fault, not hers in the end. Business is business and so far it's been pretty lame on their end.

I can see it from both perspectives. She was only on the last season and wasn't an integral part of the series as Batman & Robin were.

However, I'm sure she feels cheated (and rightfully so) after not getting residuals or monies from the various licensed merchandise from 1966-68.

Personally? They should offer her a good amount but not what Adam and Burt are getting.

It's not a case of her asking for what Adam or Burt are getting (for which I have no idea). It's a case of the deal itself makes no sense for the money they are offering and what they want her to sign off on in return.

Sorry, my fault for talking about the deal aspect of this. We can't discuss this any further. I just wanted you folks to know why there is no current license agreement.

Any rebuttals or inquiries about this needs to be handled via PM.

Sorry.

Ok, not discussing the deal but I bet toy companies have made Yvonne Batgirl prototypes to be ready if there is an agreement. Perhaps that is what Hot Toys is waiting for?
