Too rich for me. Those buyer premiums are a killer.

One of them, for sure!

Aside from the #1 Batmobile itself, the Shakespeare bust to me is the most iconic prop from the show of which there wasn’t multiples produced.

Was amazed to learn it's made of fiberglass!

Amazing collection and some one of a kind pieces.

Now that the B&R costumes have been documented though, they can't be the called the "Only Complete Suits" any more.

Azarians criticism of the Hardeman costumes were that the Robin belt was missing a wooden dowel when the belt was cut after production to fit a kid that wore the suit for Halloween..
Azarian always pointed to that as it making them "less than" his costumes as he had everything.

Well know we know that the Azarian suit is missing the fins on the bat gloves and the words "Production accurate helmet armature" jumped out at me... I knew the cowl cover was detached from the shell, but this says that the shell may be a replica... Doesn't say screen used or screen accurate or even production made... just production accurate... I could say that about ours...HHHMMMMM...Curious.

I could spend a lot of money on this auction.......If I had any! LOL!

Holy-timing! I literally spent an hour yesterday cross-referencing photos to see if that was the case or if the auction images were at a deceiving angle... I should have really just texted you Chuck... :lol:

I wish I could take credit but they mentioned them missing in the write up. ;)

I'm 99% sure the cowl cover is my favorite one. I would love to know if the shell is also the same or a stand in.

I would also LOVE to see a profile and back shot of the Shakespeare bust!!!
And a close up and profile of the eyes in the Mad Hatter hat...

Auction is going now--
Shakespeare Bust -- $160k
Batsuits -- $650k - that one was a nail biter. My wife is happy-- it was outside of the outrageous amount I was bidding.
Batmobile Phone -- $37.5k
Batmobile parachute $6500k
Bruce Wayne suit $5k
Batgirl Radio $3500k
Partial Batgirl Costume $40k
Police Department Sign $6k
Chief O'Hara Suit $8k
Joker Paggliaci Costume $10k
Gorshin Riddler Costume $16k
Julie Catwoman Costume $30k
Lee Catwoman Costume $40k
Eartha Catwoman Costume $7k

The Batradio, the foam Batarang and Robin's Batarang and a few other items went unsold-- opening bids were pretty high.
