    Gotta say, I was disappointed the re-make by Figures Inc of the Batcave came with a paper mat and not vinyl. I keep tryig to source vinyl for a mat but not had much luck. Good look in your search for a vintage one.

    ^ I know, I couldn't even find equivalent vinyl sheeting online. I hope someone can help, too--seems parts are scarce here.

    i bought a vinyl replacement mat years ago on ebay. it was exactly like thick inflatable pool material. Have you looked for a gray inflatable raft? Maybe try the places that make the big vinyl banners.

    Hmmm. I was looking at signage and vinyl sheeting online, I'll consider the raft as well.

    Just hit me as I was taking a shower earlier. The inner shower curtain liners.

    Have you looked at vinyl game mats for tabletop rps? Most are customizable to size and made to be printed on or marked up with wet erase markers, etc. Basic mats can be found at any game or hobby store that carries role playing games at there are lots of folks who will make customizable ones. I am not exactly sure you can get one made to the dimensions of a Mego playset (and even less sure you could get one printed with the images on them), but the material is out there to maybe kitbash one on your own with a little creativity and inventiveness, and looking into it might open up some new avenues of possibility for you. There's also the playmats folks use for playing Magic: The Gathering and other collectible card games that are often made out of vinyl as well (but are less easily customized/marked up), but it too might be an avenue to look at if you end up trying to kitbash one if you don;t find any available. Chessex is the company that is the standard for vinyl battlemats for tabletop rpgs. The standard looks like this reversible with square grids on one side and hex grids on the other...



    but other companies make them with terrain printed on them like such...



    while things like Star Wars miniatures games have vinyl mats like this:



    a little digging might find companies or people with etsy stores or such that make custom mats with images you provide or based on specs you provide, but I am not sure on prices.

    Maybe not the most convenient or cost-effective route, but it is a contingency if another recourse doesn't pan out.

    Along those lines, several years ago we found clear plastic vinyl sheets at Wal Mart in their fabric department that we used to make battlemat vinyl tablecloths for our gaming room table and another as a travelling tablecloth when we played at friends or went to shows, so that's another place to look for cheap vinyl. It was rolled like other fabrics and you bought by the yard.

    ^ Clear sheeting is pretty plentiful, finding gray, olive, or light blue has been the challenge.

    A shower curtain might work if very heavy.

    yea check the inner liners. Mine is a dove gray and just slightly thinner than I remember the vintage being.
