Hi Gang,

I have done a few searches and can only find a very small version of the abc batman lot sign.
Does anyone have a big version?
I have attached the version I have recreated as best I can with the small pic I have.

Do you have a link to the small pic of the lot sign? I might be able to offer advice on the font (Arial didn't exist until 1982).

These are fun! Particularly love seeing a sharp/higher version of the classic "Batman is Coming" bill.

Our old Chum, Lee Kirkham recreated a lot of the Batman/Pengy for Mayor graphics and shared them on the old forum around ten years ago.

Here's some of Lee's work:

Wowsers! I would dig the heck out of coming across that in person!

I hope you mentioned to the store-staff that you can provide a good home for that signage once the promo ends, Ian?!
