Thanks for sharing Scott. The Penguin's sub was in Planet Hollywood, in NY. One of the missing pieces is the gun turret on the forward deck. Anyway, here's the link to an old thread that has photos of the model in Planet Hollywood:

I think it should fetch more than $8,000 seeing as how it's screen used, and one-of-a-kind. The Ideal playset MIB has sold for over $12,000 and thousands were made of that.
Music. BAT! Music.

I saw that Riddler costume in an exhibit in Paris a few months ago.

Very interesting indeed! Down the rabbit hole on a few of these items when I get chance, there's a couple of questions i'd really like to answer.

Oh, maybe just a few things.....
Is that the Mr Freeze helmet that Ralph showed Adam in the Blu Ray extras?

"Handwritten text on the interior reads 'Yvonne' with the name Audrey crossed out"
This'll sound like a noob question, but who's Audrey? Yvonne's stunt double?

Correct, she was Yvonne's stunt double for a period in the first half of Season Three.

Interesting that the Mr Freeze helmet had gold and silver. I hadn't noticed the gold (esp. in the b/w days).

The catalogue says the bubble visor on Mr.Freeze's helmet has yellowed from age, I'm guessing that's where the gold shine comes from

Ah, maybe! I am glad now I didn't race to repaint my custom figure!

Yeah, the sides are silver, and the reflection of the raised, yellowed visor gives the top of the helmet its gold tinge!

The yellow color on the inside of the helmet is rotting mattress foam.
The Mr. Freeze helmet I saw a while back was padded with it.

So if you win this and try it on, maybe keep the visor up! ;)

Out of curiosity, does anyone know of someone who might be doing any "pre-sale viewing"?

I am interested in the Clayton Moore Lone Ranger shirt (Lot 381) as a fan and non-bidder. To the best of my knowledge, this could be the first screen-used shirt to come up for sale. All of the auctions I have ever seen are for Clayton's personal appearance costumes. This shirt seems to be from season 4 of the series. I'd love to be able to coordinate with someone who might be able to provide me some details about the shirt when seen in person.

If anyone knows of anyone that could help, please let me know.

Thank you,
Mike
