I believe at least one Riddler is out there somewhere...

I would have liked to seen these Monsters of the movies set pieces along with  Godzilla and the Tokyo Tower

Denis; I feel like the Doctor doing all this traveling through time, LOL.  Patterns (I believe) are all owned by Phil C, the unproduced Riddler is in the collection of Andy Yanchus. I have had the good fortune of visiting Andy at his home a few times, and he had it in a display case in his basement.  I know he has brought it to at least ONE show in Jersey (maybe a Garrity show in the Pre-Chiller days down in Cherry Hill? Or maybe it was the Chiller show when he and Dave Cockrum had a table RIGHT around the corner from me in the garage level dealer's room.  Funny how for all the DISSING the Joisey shows get, they have ALWAYS managed to fill their dealers rooms W/O selling to recasters, and when THE single biggest kit related story of the 21st century (thus far anyway, knock on wood)
drops, it is PRETTY far north of the Bible belt w/o a Post-it  in site in the dealer's room (other than those being used as PRICE TAGS of course).  Makes me WONDER if we MIGHT be due for a change when it comes to bragging rights, LOL.

Reminds me of a Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times." I live close to Dallas so we don't get much around here by way of model shows (beyond IPMS) and horror, although the Famous Monsters Convention is here and will run May 26-28. Just about everyone I've dealt with in Aurora collecting has been on either coast, all the way back to the days of Starlog ads and the  photocopied mailing lists Of John F. Green (California) and John Apgar (New Jersey).
I hope these other prototypes see the light of would be a neat way to close the circle of the Aurora Plastic Corp. If not, I've got plenty of kits to keep me well as top-notch additions from COPP!  ;)
