Robin Joins Batman in Planet Wallywood!

Post by wally wingert »

At long last, I've reconfigured my Batman display to make room for the Boy Wonder! It took a bit of moving around the displayed replica props, but it all fit very nicely.

I still need to polish Batman's buckle, iron Robin's vest, polish his buckle and attach the safety tether to the back wall (earthquake country, doncha know!) I also need to add the sign with the credits which will go right between the two. But I'm waiting until the display is completed so it won't get damaged in case we need to do some more moving around.

But other than that, they're ready to rock!

My Shakespeare bust has been completely repainted and patched. I found a new switch which is 1/2" longer than the original switch (which the company no longer makes) so I'm having to have my effects guy reconfigure the back of the bust to accomodate the longer switch. Lots of work, but worth it!

Together at last! This is looking superb buddy! I always love trying to spot the new additions when I visit Planet Wallywood, but I don't think this one will be hard to find! :)

Is that a Chuck head on the Batman Mannequin? If so, is this the first time we've seen it attached to a body?

Sorry Joel, that's not a "Chuck Head" as we know it.

I'll let Wally or Chuck chime in and explain the story.

I love all those little details, the bat shield, bat spray repellents, two way radio. Doyle you have the bat cuffs too?
