Andy Garringer designed and produced etched buckles for my AW Aurora replacement set ten years ago, and I still have a few left. Size will probably be close. PRETTY sure I sent Paul at ParaGraphix some reference when he was doing the etch fret for Round 2s '66 Batmobile; if not, I will throw it in the box with the OTHER reference I promised him for an upcoming Moebius project (sorry for the delay Paul, I took a TUMBLE on some ice the other day and it set me back a bit .)

Close, but probably at least a little too big. Moebius' promotional material states these kits will be "approximately 1/10 scale, each completed kit measures about 8" to 10" tall, including base." Regardless, I'd guess a lot of modelers would really appreciate having photoetched versions of Batman's and Robin's belt buckles available...perhaps already in the works?
Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.
Decals can be difficult to deal with, but I've never liked the look of engraved details such as these unless they were engraved on the actual costumes (and, at the moment, I can't think of a single instance in which they were).
But all you'd have to do is fill the engravings in and put a decal on top if you preferred.
Al; I have art for both Batman AND Robin buckles (and actual buckles) going to Paul at ParaGraphix to be resized (as soon as we have the kits to use for sizing.)
Bob Horne at Academy Art already has lasercut vinyl emblems for Batman and Robin that (again) would just need to be resized. I'm thinking the eyebrow and noselines for the cowl could be done as decals for people too timid to paint them, and label decals for the utility belt pouches could be produced (although VERY few episodes actually featured them) A Joker head decal to create the Joker's utility belt buckle is a possibility I suppose.
I don't think that I've been this excited over a series of model kits in a very long time.
Sure, I LOVE my Monster kits and Moebius is doing a fantastic job with those.
However, my life revolved around this TV show from 1975 till I got into KISS in 1977.
I used to watch this show 3 times a day on different UHF channels and then reenact the episodes with my Mego dolls.
I honestly believed that I was going to be a real life Robin by the time I entered High School, LOL.
I have NEVER been interested in the newer versions of Batman or that Dark Knight stuff.
I mean, no Robin?
No, this was my Batman.
Yes, I might have liked it better if each figure had it's own scene/background with props rather than the connecting bases BUT I'm not complaining.
Thank you Moebius, this series of kits should have been made Long ago but they weren't.
Not even the mighty AURORA produced kits based upon this TV show, aside from the Penguin.
