BATMAN RETURNS ORIGINAL SCREEN USED SUIT
ON A PRODUCTION USED FOAM LIFE CAST
COMES WITH FULL PROVENANCE
REASONABLE OFFERS CONSIDERED...
***UPDATE*** I have spoken with Michael Cassidy (stuntman on Returns) and he told me this actual suit was used for a zip wire stunt, an explosion, and driving sequences. So its had some great use in the film! Its quite rare to have this much provenance for a prop like this, which includes the actor, 2 people that made and designed the suits, and the last 2 private owners. That's better than any COA.
This consists of torso and arm armor made of foam latex, and a full under body suit which is mounted on a production used foam lifecast. This suit had lots of use in the film as mentioned. You can still see the marks where the cape mounted onto the oval chest emblem section.
The armour is in good condition as you can see in the pictures, however the forearms are damaged due to being worn under the gloves. The right forearm armour is mostly there but cracked with little bits missing, but the left forearm armour is mostly missing with just one part remaining. However, this doesn't really detract from how great it looks, and how rare it is. Complete costumes, which in most cases have replica pieces and always damage to forearms and shin areas sell for around £25000+. The foam life cast is held together by metal rods running through the centre, legs and arms. It also comes with a replica cowl which has been moulded from an original.
This is something i dont want to sell, but i could use the funds for something else i have planned. I have full provenance from the last two owners, one of which is a well known collector in LA who got it directly from Warner Brothers, and the other is a writer and Batman aficionado. I also have provenance from two people who where directly involved in the making and designing of the suits on the film. (one was a principal in the design process of the suits, and also appears in some of the DVD extras on the Batman films)
UK buyers- Ideally this will have to be collected as it is over 5 foot tall and cant be broken down. I can also deliver anywhere in the country for a fee. cash on collection/delivery preferred. postage is NOT free, ebay would only let me put a max of £7. email me first for a delivery quote.
International bidders. This is located in the UK and will have to be shipped in a huge box as it cant be broken down into smaller pieces. I have put an estimate of the shipping costs, but email me first with post/zip code so i can get an accurate quote, it may be more it may be less. shipping is extra and not included in the price. any extra customs/import fees are the buyers responsibility and are not included in the price.
NO RETURNS!! this is an extremely rare original film prop.
