NEED HELP!! Batman Argentina costume!!

Post by eastlosfinest » Fri Mar 28, 2014 3:48 pm

ok guys, so I bought this costume from argentina. my first question is, is it fake? I don't think it is fake, but there are some things that worry me. for example, under the PLASTIRAMA, there should be something written, but there isn't. this can be due to the fact that its a different variation, because I know they had two, one with BATMAN on the forehead of the mask, and the other WITHOUT it. Secondly, the accessories. in the variant with BATMAN across the mask, the accessories are a RED belt, and a BLACK small mask, this one has a blue small mask and a YELLOW belt. anyone that knows more, can you please help me out so I can send it back in case it is fake. either way, its a really cool display piece and hard to get. thanks.

I don't think it's a fake, I've seen it before, it's a really neat piece. Quite a few great items from Brazil featuring the classic version of Batman.

You can see the Robin and Batchica ones in this frame grab of Chip Kidd's collection. It seems that even Chip Kidd doesn't have one!

Check this trailer out. I REALLY want to see this movie:

yea they are hard to come by. the most RARE and popular one is the batgirl one, because its called BATICHICA hahaha. but they are all rare, and highly sought after. I was lucky to found this one. it was from ebay, I was in contact with a seller from argentina and he messaged me saying he found one.

The costume is legit. My only doubt is about belt, I remember it in red. The Batman mask is the original that comes with the package. Many years later some "wise guy" put the Batman name on the forehead, but never has part of the kit, this mask has sold separately on carnival time. The other mask with bat-shape always has come in black, so blue is very strange. I never saw the other mask as part of any kit. I hope this help.

I had the same doubts, because I know the belt came in red and the mask was black as well. how about the box?? do you think the box is a fake??? and I know about the mask, that is legit as well. thanks.
