If I only had them all, this makes #6 or #7. Each one is an improvement over the previous version.
1) Prop Dept out of Florida
2) Ken Davis cowl
3) Wally Wingert cowl
4) Mattel cowl
5) 50th Anniversary Cowl #5/5
6) 1st season Cowl with normal painted ears, versus the painted extended ears. #4 of initial 30.

I think I did post some sided by side photos of the Wally versus the 50th Anniversary Cowl.
Even the busts have been upgraded, starting with the Bust from South America that seemed a cross between Adam West and Christopher Reeve, and unpainted Chuck Adam West Bust, and finally the fully painted Adam West Bust.

Lots of cool stuff has come and gone, and happily to other collectors, or in one case, the entire costume went to a Batman/Elvis/Superman impersonator (Leon).

Over time more will be sold as we’re downsizing, so stay tuned...

I was searching eBay for dollshouse furniture for a 70s-era project (Australia didn't get colour TV until 1975) and found these cool handmade television set Christmas tree ornaments. Since I only ever saw "Batman" in b/w until 1975, it seemed an appropriate one to select. (Many other choices for the screen image.) By Followthemoonart.

I finally found the little DC Nano 66 Penguin figure to go with the Batman and Joker figures. Glad to have them all. Also picked up a Jim Gordon from the Animated series.

Picked up an Infantino homage too: Image

The quest is never ending! My Nano MetalFig comic book Batgirl figure only needed a repaint. Robin is a Gentle Giant figure.

Ian, that’s spectacular. I need to get that Batgirl. My Robin is a heroclix figure

Robin 80th Anniversary Special - 70s Variant cover by Kaare Andrews
Image
Robin 80th Anniversary comic by Ian McLean, on Flickr

It's gorgeous, with homages to the 70s Mego action figure line: title font from the box art, Batman's utility belt, Batgirl's shiny blue cowl.

Joker 80th Anniversary Special - 70s Variant cover by Ian McLean, on Flickr

Just noticed: the forthcoming 1970s variant cover, by Jim Lee and Scott Williams, for "The Joker 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular" #1. Similar to the "Robin" 80th anniversary cover, this variant art pays affectionate homage to the Joker, Catwoman and Riddler Mego action figures of the 70s.

Infantino? Did the backing card refer to it as that? The card's illustration seems to be taking all of its inspiration from Nick Cardy's 1970s art, with his distinctive bat-ears curved, pointing inward, and the bat-emblem's "ears" being a bit rounded, as seen two covers of World's Finest from 1974--

It definitely is a Nick Cardy illo, taken from 100- Page Super Spectacular, DC-14.

Carmine Infantino designed many of the cover layouts during his tenure as publisher, so he may have actually had an uncredited hand in the artwork.
