Seeing this picture from the Japan premier....what happens to the cardboard images used over the marquee? Did Batjac get them back or are they in movie collector limbo somewhere?

I have no idea about what they did with those type of things back in the 1960s, but, when The Alamo 2004 was playing locally, the theatre had a large (maybe 5' x 4') cardboard standee in the auditorium. I had asked if I could photograph it and was allowed and when they finished the movie's run they asked me if I wanted it and gave it to me. It's still up in the attic because I have no room to display it. So, probably, some collector or collectors have a large number of these things somewhere.
