Corgi Gift Set 3 Batmobile & Batboat Set. Most sought-after 1st version. Very near mint/boxed, with over-sleeve. With still-sealed Secret Instruction Packet. From The MBU Collection.
A most desirable scarce Corgi set and a difficult find in any condition.
Particularly susceptible to damage is the very attractive large colourful window box with a winged header card. This colourfully-illustrated 1st issue has plenty of atmospheric artwork (with absolutely no sunfading!) on the complete and intact header card. All end flaps are present and firmly attached. No tears or graffiti. A little rub and an end crumple. Original cellophane is intact. Colours have lost none of their vibrancy.
Lots of information on the box reverse.
This set comprises:
Corgi 267 Batmobile with both original seated figures of Batman and Robin. This is the tow hook version (correct for this set). Intact blue screens. Suspension on ‘Bat wheels’. All functions operate well; chain cutter, rocket launcher and pulsating flame. Bright Bat logos on the wheels and complete and bright Bat logos at both sides of the Batmobile. Original aerial (unfortunately on transit to us a small top portion snapped off, but is still included!). Impossible to fault otherwise – blisteringly good!
Corgi 107 Batboat. Early issue with the attractive tin fin, sitting on a cast-wheeled gold trailer. Complete paper labels on both sides of the boat. Both original seated figures, still banded in place. Chipping to tow ring.
Both items sit in a yellow plastic inner, which is notably intact. Extremely difficult to find this good.
Complete with an original still-sealed set of instructions. And this set is unopened – not a later re-sealed example!
Comes complete with the original plain buff over-sleeve (very minor wear).
