Thread: Legit RC Batman head

  1. #1

    Legit RC Batman head

    Iíve looked at the accessory page, as well as doing a quick search of the forum, and still donít have a definitive answer. If anyone can point me to the right thread.

    I recently bought 2 RC Batman. Both heads have the same, standard, NPP copyright info on the back of the neck. The head on the right appears narrower and is made of significantly squishier rubber. Are these both original RC heads? Were there repos beyond FTC, DM, and CTVT?

    Iíve tried to embed a photo link but 50-50 odds Iím outwitted by basic technology.

    Thanks,

    They both look authentic to me

    Thanks for responding so quickly. Were you able to to open up the Instagram link? Though, the difference in width is more apparent in person. Also, is it weird the head in question is made of such pliable rubber? I havenít owned one fresh out of the box since 1973, so maybe thatís the sign of a well-preserved toy.

    When I was a kid, the first Mego I got was an RC Batman, and I remember compared to my friends' batman figs, mine also had a noticeably narrower head (almost like he'd look if you squished him slightly between your fingers and it stuck that way). He also had a softer material than the others I saw back then -- maybe a bad batch of vinyl one day, and a number of RC Batmen with softer, narrower heads resulted?

    I don't own one but I don't think the back of the head is marked NPP on the repro. I've seen them soft but still vinyl and not out right rubber like ctvt's early stuff like the knights and hoods. Huge difference in material.
