For those of you that are unaware NJ Croce makes some very cool gifts and toys and this one is no exception. The Classic 1966 Batmobile is a perennial favorite of car geeks as well as toy geeks. The lines, the details, the distinctive canopy make it one of the most recognizable automobiles in the world. Now, NJ Croce has miniaturized it and added two bendable figures of the dynamic duo that sit in the cockpit.
First off, the scale is 1/24, so it’s about 10 inches long. The black vehicle has tons of details in the sculpt, as can be seen by a shot of the underside of the car.
The details also cover the car to the point it looks like an extremely detailed model kit that has be expertly painted.
As you can see even the license plate and parachutes and afterburner are included and expressed in this model. The pinstriping and Bat hubs are very cool although the only downside is that the wheels don’t spin, but that has something to do with licensing and for me, this is going to adorn my shelf, not be play with in the yard.
We get the antennas, the Bat ray on the hood, the silver mortar pipes are included.
The Batmobile comes complete with a bendable Batman and Robin figure from the classic t.v. series. They are posed in a seated position and are of course smaller than the retail versions of Batman bendable figure and all the other characters, Catwoman, Penguin, etc. But more on those when I do my Batman bendable gift set review soon. The figures included with the Batmobile are very nice interpretations of the characters of Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward).
This brings us to the interior details, of which there are many. Steering wheel, seatbelts, fire extinguisher, and of course the red Bat phone is present.
The work that went into this Batmobile is tremendous, and the end result is a very pleasing Batmobile that will make hearts young and old flutter… To the Batmobile!
Atomic batteries to power! Turbines to speed…
Let’s move out!
A big thank you goes out to NJ Croce for supplying us with this awesome product.
