I love your 60's merchandise. I am also very envious of your 89 Batman and Joker statues. I wish I had money at 16 to be buy those back then, but sadly my paper route didnt pay enough.lol You were lucky to have bought those. Great pieces.
I have something very similar to this. A friend of mine bought it at a thrift store in NC for nothing and gave it to me. I gave it to my local comics shop to see if the owner could find out more about it and see if anyone wanted to buy it. That was months ago. She's hardly ever there, she always has employees manning the store for her and I forgot all about it. I wish I were more computer literate and that I had a cam, I would post pics and see if anyone knew anything about it. All I can tell you is, it's a motorcycle with Batman sitting in it, and the cape is long and kind of flexible, and it has some logos underneath and I believe it says "made in Thailand". Damn, I wish I had pics!

Noble Collection Prop Set arrived today! Here are my impressions:
Overall it's an outstanding piece. The objects are raised above the background, so they appear to float. The cards are perfect, and they are different shades of white, giving them a subtle difference from one another. The Batarang is brushed brass, with antiqued recesses - different from the movie, but appealing. The Dent button looks authentic. The coin does not say "copy" on it which is a huge relief for me, but the scarred side is simply painted and not scratched up. Neither coin has "IN GOD WE TRUST" on it which is inaccurate. Is it a deal breaker? Not as far as I'm concerned. I may still open her up and change out the scarred coin for the WalMart version, and put a real 1922 silver dollar in place of the unscarred, but for now I'm happy with it as it came.
Yeah, I think I remember that Joker mask, I once tried tracking one down myself, but besides showing up very rarely, it's basically impossible to get one were the hair didn't fade to an orangish color. Those mannequins look official enough to me anyways.

Here's another view of one of my favorite pieces from the 60's, the Marx Batmobile. The decals on the side were made by my dad when the originals got scuffed up. I know they aren't accurate, but they have sentimental value to me regardless. I got this for Christmas 1966 or 67.
