In recent years actors like Michael Keaton and Christian Bale have laid claim to the Batman character in movies, but your parents (or grandparents) are probably more familiar with Adam West’s take on the superhero from the campy 1960s TV series. Which means that Mattel’s gigantic version of the George Barris-designed 1966 Batmobile will appeal to toy collectors from any age group — even those enjoying retirement.
The Batmobile not only comes with enough detail to satisfy any collector, it also comes with a 6-inch version of both Adam West’s Batman, and Burt Ward’s Robin, that perfectly fit in the cockpit. The only thing missing is genuine fire blasting out the back of the car, but ‘kid-safe’ is probably a big selling point. [Mattel]
