Product Spotlight: Vintage Batman Models!

Here on Legions of Gotham we like to spotlight some of the best new product coming out in the realm of Batman.  Recently, we notice that the old Polar Lights models based on the 1966 Batman show were being re-released in stores!   Thanks to Round2 Models, we're able to bring you a better look at this great "new" product!

Today, we're going to have a look at the Batmobile and the Batboat models!  We'll focus on the batmobile first.  The model is available in two different formats, the standard boxed release and the Collector's Edition Tin!   Collector's be on alert...the tin is the way to go!  Its well worth it.  This thing not only includes the exact boxed version inside, but it has a dynamic black tin (see pics below) and a really cool schematic poster of the Barris 1966 Batmobile!  Its only a $15 difference in price.  

How are the models themselves?  Fantastic!  The Batmobile requires glue and painting, but comes with easy to assemble Batman and Robin characters to go inside.  I was able to sit down at the kitchen table with my kids and put together a model.  It was a blast.  I remember my first model, it was the 1989 Batmobile.  It was covered in glue and looked awful, but I was SO proud of it.  This is one of those pasttimes that has fallen to the wayside, but either as a collector or a parent, you can live it again with these models.  Check out the image gallery below and then jump to our look at the Batboat!

Now, onto the Batboat...

.....this one was almost funner than the Batmobile.  Sure, the Batmobile is iconic, but the Batboat was crazy!  Its one of those campy 60s show vehicles that just makes you laugh.  The models both look great, but this one is especially dynamic!
