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 crisp, intact header card. All end flaps are present and firmly attached – and just one very small tear emanating from an end flap. Light wear besides. Original cellophane is notably intact. Colours have lost none of their vibrancy and the card is crisp.
Lots of information on the box reverse.
This set comprises:
1) 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’. Bright Bat logos on the wheels and complete and bright Bat logos at both sides of the Batmobile. Original aerial intact. Occasional tiny mark only.
2) 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. A little chrome loss to dashboard. Both original seated figures still in clear packet.
Both items sit in a yellow plastic inner, which is notably intact. Extremely difficult to find this good.
Original Instruction Packet, has been opened and inside is a sprue of 12 yellow missiles, Batmobile Instructions, badge.
Card packing piece which would fit underneath the centre of the plastic plinth for support.
Also included is the original plain buff over-sleeve.
