Hello and welcome to my listing. Next month will be the 50th anniversary of Batman on TV. Thanks to Adam West and Burt Ward, apart from nabbing the bad guys, there was always an underlying message teaching children why milk was good for us, why we should brush our teeth/ eat fruit and veg, respect our parent`s etc... Maybe that`s why my folks didn`t mind the campness of it all..As Robin would say `Holy Vintage Toys Batman`... `Lets talk about this 50 year old toy`. TOY IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. I very seldom say my items are rare because many listings state the item as ultra/ super/ holy grail rare and there are usually another identical 10 others listed alongside them. So in 15 years, there has been 2. Central red siren and taillight work as they should. Makes a nice noise- loud and clear. Plastic Windshield has no cracks. Batman and Robin figures in immaculate condition.
Unless its right up to your nose you wouldn`t notice it, but It`s only right to mention. On either side of the red light at the back there are 2 tiny pin marks- they come out/ not go in. I believe this is from the factory and it is as if someone took a pin and pushed from the inside- you have to look really hard to see it. On Robins back windshield, there is a very tiny scuff.
If you slowly run your hand over the bodywork, you will feel there is the slightest tinge of a rise in the center of the hood. Invisible to the eye as very tiny and because the car is black. The box has some wear and tear as you can see, but has done a great job of protecting the car over the years. Just above the left front grill is a tiny bit of wear. This is where it probably hit a piece of furniture when it was played with.
The scratch behind Robin is really not much and is the only flaw you can see. So there you have it. A fantastic piece of Batmobilia that will appeal to a whole array of collectors. As its now bonus time in many countries, a 10% deposit will secure the item for 2 months.
I have listed 10 pics, in case there is a request for a specific photo(2 more allowed). Please don`t embarrass us both. (ebays automatic system only allows a minimum of 10- but I`m a nice guy).
