DC DIRECT PRODUCTS
Second in a series. Following the Batmobile Replica: 1950s Edition, DC Direct continues its line of Batmobile Replicas with the 1960s version. Its blinding headlights split the darkness, its powerful engine little more than a hum against the clamor of the Gotham City nights. Now the world-famous car that patrolled Gotham throughout the '60s is brought to life. Based on the classic Batmobile from the comics of the 1960s, this vehicle has an open cockpit to reveal its detailed design and is approximately 10.75 inches long, 4.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches tall, set on a deco-themed base and featuring a 4-color logo backdrop card. It also features light-up headlights, taillights and rear fin lights, siren, rear turbo exhaust, dashboard control panel, center console, and eyes on the Bat-emblem and grill on the front. All the lights work on a 30-second timer. Replica includes a vehicle title and a blueprint suitable for framing. Packaged in a 4-color box.
$195, in stores on May 28.
