2) Corgi 925 Batcopter has a bright gloss black finish and complete, vivid Batman transfers. Note there is a little edge furling to some of the transfers.
3) Corgi Batboat on Trailer has an intact chrome dashboard. This is the harder to find version with Rally Whizzwheels. Very bright, clean and fresh with colourful Bat logos.
Intact card plinth and polystyrene inner. Sprue of missiles still tucked between the card and polystyrene plinth.
The large and colourful header card box impresses with fresh bright colours. Clean and crisp. Small end flap tear.
Original cellophane is notably intact too. Nice to see the header card section does not have a crease on the reverse!
