Model kits make great gifts - no matter if you are young or old !


These are brochures of the Batmobile that almost was. A friend of mine had called to me to let me know that Danbury Mint was going to make a 1/24 scale 1966 Batmobile, and that I could preorder it. He gave me a phone number which I had called, and they promptly sent me a preorder form, which I filled out and sent off. Along with the form was a brochure.

Needless to say, I couldn't wait to get it. But months had passed and I hadn't heard anymore about it. Till I recieved a letter from Danbury Mint saying that they were unable to produce the 1966 version. They also sent a new form to preorder a different comic book version. (which now, to me, looks like the Johnny Lighting version which came out a few years later).

I have heard that while George Barris gave the go ahead to produce the car, Warner Bros. said no. I believe Polar Lights / Jonny Lightning had a similiar problem, but eventually got it all sorted out. Round2 was the first (excluding the 1960s 1/32 Aurora car) to produce a mass produced model kit of the 1966 Batmobile in 1/25.

The Danbury Mint brochure below is so well done, it's really hard to tell if it's pictures of the real car, or a pre-production one-off build diecast, except for the interior, which does appear to be the real car. The diecast replica would have been $ 149.00 (and well worth the price) if it had been made.

I am sure many people, just like me, were disappointed that Danbury Mint was not allowed to make the replica. But I give them two well deserved thumbs up for making a serious attempt to bring this car to all of us.
