Corgi Gift Set 3 Batmobile & Batboat
Batmobile & Batboat Set, by Corgi Toys, Gift Set No. 3 Batman. Version with INTENSE GOLD BAT WHEELS. Very near mint - mint/boxed with Secret Instruction Packet. From The Pennsylvanian Collection. Starting bid £1500. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
A most desirable Corgi set – so difficult to find in this very close to perfect – perfect condition.
The set comprises:
1) Batmobile in gleaming gloss black finish with both original figures of Batman and Robin. Tow hook version. Bright red ‘bat’ wheels, gleaming chrome, bright gold parts. Correct that this version (being the last made with the desirable bat wheels) has less pointed rear fins and intense gold-coloured parts. With suspension on all four wheels.
2) Batboat sits atop the gold trailer with cast wheels. Complete with both seated figures of Batman and Robin. More desirable ‘tin fin’ version (later issues were plastic). Mint condition with remains of the original elastic band fixings which kept both figures in situ.
Very small mark to the tow ring.
Complete with a carefully opened Secret Instruction Packet which contains a full sprue of missiles, badge and Instructions.
Both items sit in a bright and clean polystyrene inner. So fresh!
The colourful outer box is clean, complete and strongly-coloured. Crisp. Resistant end flaps. No tears. No graffiti. Smooth, original cellophane is notably intact. Very close to old shop stock quality.
The box reverse is particularly attractive with full colour, vibrant art work which complements the set beautifully.
An exceptional set and a premium piece for your collection.
