Company: Johnny Lightning
Batman has been around in comic book form since the 1940’s, and while he may not be able to fly or swing from spider webs of his own making, he has always had one thing that very few of the other superheroes have had: a really cool ride.
Playing Mantis (which owns both Johnny Lightning and Polar Lights) is coming out with a whole batcave-load of Batman-related vehicle kits in various scales and media. One of the first to come out is the die-cast 1960’s Batmobile in 1/24th scale. This is NOT the Batmobile from the TV show that we all know so well, but the Batmobile from the comic book. It is similar in many respects to the TV car, but it has some major differences.
The kit comes packaged in what has become a standard box for pre-finished kits: a heavy, oversized cardboard box with a large plastic display window through which the completed body shell can be seen. And the body shell IS completed: painted, decaled, with all clear and chrome plastic pieces attached, and with the hinged hood in place.
