Description

    Mechanical Monsters Superman Model Sheet Group (Fleischer Studios, 1941-43). Look! Up in the sky! It's SUPER-Rare! Artwork from the Fleischer Superman cartoons is considered to be scarcer than Kryptonite. This lot has an actual original layout drawing from "Mechanical Monsters" and two printed model sheets from "Billion Dollar Limited." The original 16 field pencil art layout/animation drawing shows a figure (a rough version of Superman) preparing to leap from the back of one of the flying robots from the episode "Mechanical Monsters." The image area of the artwork is approximately 9.5" 4.5". One of the model sheets is for the robbers (11" x 14") and one is for the Policemen (15.5" x 12"), both are marked S-11-3 and have a print of Dave Fleischer's signature on them. They are from the episode "Billion Dollar Limited". Handling and edge wear is visible. These were reference sheets for the animation staff and important documents in the animation process. In Very Good condition with minor handling wear.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
