Corgi Gift Set 3
Corgi Gift Set 3 Batmobile & Batboat Set. Very near mint-mint/boxed with full Secret Instruction Packet & original Shopkeeper's Price Labels in Packet. From The MBU Collection.
A most desirable Corgi set – so difficult to find in this very close to perfect condition!
The set comprises:
1) Batmobile in gleaming gloss black finish with both original figures of Batman and Robin. Tow hook version. Bright red ‘bat’ wheels, gleaming chrome, bright gold parts. Correct that this version (being the last made with the desirable bat wheels) has less pointed rear fins and very bright gold parts.
Little chip at a bumper edge and another at a door sill.
2) Batboat is still banded to the gold trailer with cast wheels. Complete with both seated figures of Batman and Robin. More desirable ‘tin fin’ version (later issues were plastic). Mint condition.
Complete with a bright unopened Secret Instruction Packet which contains missiles, badge and Instructions. Also included are 2 mint Corgi Shopkeeper Printed Labels for this item with the original packet:
Both items sit in a shop-fresh polystyrene inner. Outstanding – since these are so prone to discolouration and tend to crumble with the passage of time.
The colourful outer box is in remarkable fresh and bright condition with smooth, original cellophane (tiny puncture).
The box reverse is particularly attractive with full colour, vibrant art work which complements the set beautifully.
