Re: 89 Batmobile Voice Remote Prop?


Cool stuff.

Much larger than I thought and in the ebay pics it looked like is was a bronze or brass color instead of the straight black. That definately connects up with the other props better than I had thought before.

I see a orange under tone and a bit of pink in one section. Is this a resin coloring or is this part of a found object?

I'll do some pic comparison later and post them.

Again thanks for putting this stuff up! It cool to see more great pics added to the 89 prop compendium of knowledge!

Re: 89 Batmobile Voice Remote Prop?


those are great Tony! I agree with Nick, it looks like maybe the original color was some kind of orange or something...I have searched and searched through my 89 library and I don't have a single clear shot of this prop..I'll keep looking tho :up

Re: 89 Batmobile Voice Remote Prop?


Yes the original color is orange. I don't know if it is a primer, but I don't think so. It is more visible on the "hinge" than normal because I was unscrewing the nut on the end to see how one woud attach a microphone piece, which exposed parts that normally are pinched together.

It is a combination of kitbash parts, so someone might be able to identify them on the RPF-- those guys are amazing.

The top profile with the weird ridge matches thegeneral outline in my pics. The mic part that is visible seems to be consistent with the width of the hinge area.

The battery area is taped, very carefully, with electrical tape, but there is not battery in it. I bet if I took it off, I would be able to replace the battery. This also means that someone had very carefully taped it back up when the battery was first removed. Iwould say the original builders did this, because the same tape is used on the bottom of the 2 tubes, and underneath the tape is the original orange color, meaning it was taped BEFORE painting, not added later.

I might take a few more shots with the thing in the correct hand position...

Re: 89 Batmobile Voice Remote Prop?


I was thinking about how the base color is orange and I was trying to figure out why...

then it occured to me that there are several orange props in this flick!

Cathedral Radio-

Gas Remote-

and the Gas Mask-

Perhaps it's large size is due to the fact that it started life as a joker prop and was then converted into a bat prop?

OR perhaps the prop shop just used some leftover orange resin to do this prop while a batch of other stuff was being worked on?

Any guesses?

Very reasonable guesses-- I have thought the same things.
