This was huge back in the 1980's for young astronauts series. These were based on actual

A Day at Aguadilla Shopping Mall

Aquadilla shopping mall with the local Cinema. Tickets for the theater during the day are $5 bucks and 3D are $7.50. Night and the weekend are $6 and 8.50 accordingly all first run. The only thing this theater doesn't have is Imax. That's okay, not a big fan of the format anyways. Saw Batman and Avatar and was good enough for me. Kmart and many other stores are here. And across the street is the beach front. That's coming up the next couple of days plus a video.

Toys in the Attic 2 Batman

Here is a different angle of the Batman collection on the shelve. 
Do you recognize all the time period and machines for the franchise?

Toys in the Attic

Here some of my old collectibles that I shipped to my studio PR from my NYC apartment.
This is my Batman collection that goes back to the 80's. Case in point The Batmobile in the
center of the picture from the Tim Burton version. Yes, I still make models that stems from
my childhood. A hobby that has gone underground since nowadays is all about video games.

Titanic Trivia Answer

So what do these items have in common?
Well first I'm talking about 2 Directors: James Cameron and Ridley Scott.
Main trivia in on the bottom shelf: Kingdom of Heaven about the Crusades,
it being Easter Weekend and a religous holiday. An excellent 4 disc DVD set that has a lot of behind the scenes making of that NOT on the Blu-ray. Then of course he did Alien
which Cameron did the sequel Aliens 2.
So here is the bonus point: Planet of the Apes in the corner of the second shelve?
Well Cameron with Arnold (Terminator) were going to do Apes then Chris Columbus
of Potter Franchise took over and after 5 scripts the projet was dead for years. Then we all knew what happen after that don't we?
Top shelve of course represents the 2 biggest movies of all time with Titanic 3D re-release
which did not do all that much world wide considering spending over 2 yrs and $20m on it.
All of these are from my collection of over 30 yrs in storage: The 1500 piece puzzle with it's
shrink wrap still on it is the oldest of the bunch.
More collectibles are going to be shown in the next 3 weeks before heading back to NYC
as all these are in boxes in PR. Stay tune for more.
