Re: Batman 89/ Batman Returns reference material


I actually have those pics of the Jack Joker suit...the howard S. Studios bust fit perfectly in the display...It was rumored that Jack took most of the joker suits with him after the film wrapped...the only other Joker suit I've seen is the one that was on display at the Warner bros. Studios tour..it was the one from the Flugelhiem Museum scene.

once again, great pics...and if any London bros' out there can get the chance to snap some more shots of that cowl..that would be great.... some fromt he side would be nice :up

Re: Batman 89/ Batman Returns reference material


Here's a weird one-

Image

the finished auction description reads-
Michael Keaton Prop Batman Bust from First Film - This is a bust depicting Michael Keaton as Batman. The molded life-sized bust has a detailed, hand painted face and is painted black from the neck down with a batman insignia on the chest. The hollow piece rests on a separate piece of foam of the same shape.

I can only imagine it was used to hold cowls while they were detailed out.

Here's a enlarged and brightened version-

The hollow piece is the top of a cape buck. This piece was attached to a metal stand and was used to hold the capes. The other piece is the inner core for the foam latex mould painted up.

Interesting. That would explain the odd shape of the neck.

I thought about the cape stand but counted it out since the neck piece still had a huge hole in the neck.

Here's the only pic I can find in my files of the standard cape stand-

edit- found another!

Perhaps an altered cape stand was used in the vault as well.

Hmmm... looking at it again, the Auction cape buck doesn't go down as far as the standard cape stand buck and the other goes down too far to be a vault style cape stand buck. It's kinda in between?!?

I think this is an actual studio piece. I think I remember it being described as the bust used in the scene where he calls the batmobile,and it stops inches from him. This was a dummy,and not a real person,and you can the cape hanging over the string that's holding it up,and see it sway slightly when the car stops.

I don't think it's it,but I remember it being claimed as such.
Doesn't explain the extra long neck,unless it slid into the figure somehow.
I think the long neck was explained before too,but I don't remember the explanation.

I have the other silicone Keaton head that Bob did. There's the finished one on their site,and this one,and sitting here comparing the two,I think it is a bit different.
