BATMAN
Original Kit #467 Issued: 1964

Re-Issued: 1984

My favorite comic book character, immortalized forever in plastic.
I have never personally owned this kit, but have seen it built-up several times, and it always looks great. Replacement parts are available for reissue kits to make them more like the original.
   
ROBIN
Original Kit #488 Issued: 1966

Re-Issued: 1984

The Boy Wonder is a terrific kit, with real bubble-gum comic book appeal to it. I like the "high tech" switch panel backdrop and the action pose complete with flying cape..
 
The BATMOBILE
Original Kit #486 Issued: 1966

Re-Issued: ?

An all-time favorite vehicle, this kit is difficult to find in good B/U condition, to say nothing of unbuilt. This would make a terrific Polar Lights reissue

An MISB original kit recently sold on eBay for $830.
This has become the "Holy Grail" of Aurora Bat Kits!
   
 
The BATPLANE
Original Kit #487 Issued: 1966

An excellent companion kit to the Batmobile. This kit is one of the more obscure Aurora Bat kits. As such, it can be a real challenge to lay hands on a mint specimen. This one sold on eBay comes close.
   

The BATCOPTER
Never Issued

This is one of those great kits that never made it off the drawing board. Too bad, it would've been a beauty!

Holy camp site, Batman! After a fabulously successful season on TV, the campy comic book adventure hit the big screen, complete with painful puns, outrageous supervillains,

and fights punctuated with word balloons sporting such onomatopoeic syllables as "Pow!," "Thud!," and "Blammo!" Adam West's wooden Batman is the cowled vigilante alter ego of straight-arrow millionaire Bruce Wayne and Bruce Ward's Robin (a.k.a. Dick Grayson, Bruce's young collegiate protégé) his overeager sidekick in hot pants. Together they battle an unholy alliance of Gotham City's greatest criminals: the Joker (Cesar Romero,whooping up a storm), the Riddler (giggling Frank Gorshin), the Penguin (cackling Burgess Meredith), and the purr-fectly sexy Catwoman (Lee Meriwether slinking in a skin-tight black bodysuit). The criminals are, naturally, out to conquer the world, but with a little help from their unending supply of utility belt devices (bat shark repellent, anyone?), our dynamic duo thwarts their nefarious plans at every turn. Since the TV show ran under 30 minutes an episode (with commercials), the 105-minute film runs a little thin--a little camp goes a long way--but fans of the small-screen show will enjoy the spoofing tone throughout. Leslie H. Martinson directs Lorenzo Semple's screenplay like a big-budget TV episode minus the cliffhanger endings.
