Re: Returns Emblem


i wouldn't pay too much attention to that detail. It looks like a flaw occurred during shooting of the film. Or perhaps another cause.
 
Seems too minor a detail for it to be done on purpose.
Thats just my H.O. emoticon

all of the 89 and returns hero emblems I have seen are three pieces

to date that's 5 total

and the yellow background is not yellow but orange yellow
which under heavy lights and camera lenses looks like yellow

same way the green brass of the belt looks like school bus yellow or brass

same with the superman returns belt since it was made by the same people

why I brought that up I don't know
 :rofl:



Interesting. I can't say for the Returns, but all of the 89s I've seen have been one piece. The only three-piece 89 I've ever seen is the one Henry Wayne made.

Re: Returns Emblem


I have a 2 piece Returns from the bat shop, it actually used to be 3 parts but the black ring around the oval has been permanently fixed to the yellow portion...the bat is just held on with a little bit of glue( which can easily be removed)

also, I have seen 2 copies of a RD 89 emblem in person and they have both been one piece

Re: Returns Emblem


If you watch the scene, if I am remembering correctly cuz it was 2 nites ago and i'm not home at the moment, that scallop isn't the only scallop floating.

And about the color yellow. I was told the yellow used was based on the yellow of a Frenches mustard bottle.

Re: Returns Emblem


They may well have had their reasons to do both sible and multiple-piece versions.

I have a complete Returns emblem (it may be either style, I don't know for sure) and a single piece master from the Batshop, through a WB licensee, with paperwork. I'll retrieve them from storage and shoot pics.

The emblem has the orange-ish cast Jay mentioned. Curiously, it has warped over time, like other supposedly original emblems I have seen in pics.

Re: Returns Emblem


Now that I think about it, I am pretty sure my original full emblem is 3 pieces, with the ring fused as Shawn described, which would support the notion that both types were made.

Re: Returns Emblem


PJ

when I say 3 piece just like how tony mentions, the three pieces were fused together into a one piece complete emblem

because both of the keatons are flat pieces is super easy to make it and stack the pieces

so thats what they did

the yellow back back on most of the ones I have seen looks like it might have been a sticker style colorant

especially on the one that was melted for the crash suit
its flaking up in several places showing you how it was done

omewhere here I have a really clean photo of the returns emblem on the hero suit that was up for auction a year or so ago, when I went to see it the bat was lifting off the pad from age

I support like tony does, support the assumption that the batshop did just about, well 90 different ways to do each thing so that none of us could every say it was only done this way

 :rofl:

Re: Returns Emblem


Here are some replicas with my original 3-piece (it's the orange-ish one) and a single-piece master in grey. It is extra deep.

Then I included some shots of other shots of original emblems that look like my 3-piece. Notice the yellow of the back plate showing through.

Shawn, I assume yours looks like this, too.

Re: Returns Emblem


I think that last one got sized too small but I think I have a bigger one. Then you will see the yellow on that one as well.

Also notice how the flash makes the orange much yellower as the flash strength increases.
