I saw the FP 'clacker' board yesterday from this seller, said it was original...looked newish to me just like the ones I saw around town a few years back in Toronto during TV shoots and film shoots during the workday before they went electronic/digital. Looked closer at the listing and see 1996 date, I do recall hearing something of a re-make quite a while ago but nothing after.
In regard to the poster negative, how do we know someone didn't just take a pic of their poster (maybe original) with a colour film camera to create this? I'd require some form of proof of authenticity for that kind of $$$. Could still be considered MGM's intellectual property if someone re-printed 'em.
Personally for that $$$ I'd rather have a Fred Barton/John Rigg Robby clicking away guarding the robot collection rather than a brittle negative to show friends.
