Corgi Gift Set 3
Corgi Gift Set 3 Batmobile & Batboat Set. Most sought-after 1st version. Very near mint/boxed, with still-sealed Secret Instruction Packet. From The Cheshire Collection. QDT starting bid £400. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
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 (a little ruffling). All end flaps are present and firmly attached (a little handlign wear/scuffing, couple of small flacks of surface loss). Original cellophane is notably intact.
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.
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. Both original seated figures. Few tiny tow ring marks.
Both items sit in a yellow plastic inner, which is notably intact. Extremely difficult to find this good.
Original complete Instruction Packet, has never been opened so inside will be a sprue of 12 missiles, Batmobile Instructions, Features Leaflet, badge*.
