Corgi Toys 107 Batboat
Batboat by Corgi Toys, No. 107. Early 'tin fin' issue. BRIGHT BLUE screens. Very near mint/boxed. Complete with coupling attachment. From The 25 Year Collection in California.
This is the first, more desirable issue (1967-70) Batboat with a tinplate fin (later issues had a plastic fin).
This particular version has vivid blue screens. With bright and fresh complete paper labels on both sides, both seated figures of Batman and Robin and an attractive, beautifully detailed tinplate fin (later issues were plastic). Dashboard chrome has two small areas of flaking (easily overlooked). Bright gold trailer with detailed cast wheels.
This item comes complete with the black towing hook accessory piece which could be used to attach it to the first issue Batmobile (without tow hook).
The card box with atmospheric graphics, is a work of art in itself!
Crisp, bright and fresh-looking. Crisp, barely handled feel. Very light wear. Corgi Club Membership Form.
Note that this box issue is without the printed detail ‘National Periodical Publications inc. 1966’, no Spare Tyre information printed on an end flap and no ‘Colour of contents may differ…’
