With Fathers Day just around the corner, we take a look at the iconic 1966 Batmobile in Scalextric form.
Batman originates all the way back to 1939 where he was first introduced in Detective Comics. Since then, he has grown to become one if not the most famous of superheroes of all time. Batman made it from the comic book pages and onto the TV screen in the 1960s when the Batman TV series first aired starring Adam West as Batman/Bruce Wayne.
Both Batman and his companion Robin were two crime fighters there to defend Gotham City, their mode of transport was the Batmobile. This detailed Scalextric slot car of the 1960s Batmobile captures the shape of this iconic car and offers Batman fans from around the globe the opportunity to take Batman to the track. This car comes complete with a detailed Batman figure in the driver’s seat.
A Closer Look
As both a fan of Scalextric and also of Batman – I used to watch the 1966 Batman TV series when I was a kid in the 1970’s – I was really keen to get my hands on this car.
And what can I say other than it’s amazing! The attention to detail on it is fantastic, even down to having 1966 Batman sitting in the drivers seat.
My 4 1/2 year old son even said “it’s the Batmobile” – and he’s never seen the original Batman TV series – that’s how iconic this car is!
If you are looking for that slightly different Fathers Day present, or just want to add it to your own collection, then this is definitely one to have – you may find it hard to take it out of the box, it looks that good!
The iconic 1966 Batmobile from Scalextric is available now priced around £45.99.
