Golly Gee Willikers Batman! Are you a fan of Adam West’s beloved 1966 Batman television series? Is the 1966 Batmobile also one of your favorite on-screen depictions of the Batmobile? If so, Fanhome, the leader in subscription-based collections and models, brings one of the most famous cars in history to collectors with the launch of the 1966 Batmobile build-up model subscription, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products.
Designed and built by the pioneering hot rod builder, Geoge Barris, and based on a custom 1955 Lincoln Futura, this version of the Batmobile has become one of the most recognizable vehicles in television history, and its impressive array of gadgets would, time and time again, foil the nefarious plots of Gotham’s greatest villains.
The designers over at Fanhome have spent countless hours studying the original 1966 Batmobile to provide fans and collectors alike with a buildable Batmobile that measures over 2 feet (71.4cm) when completed and touts a host of the Dynamic Duo’s many mobile crime-fighting gadgets such as the Bat-phone, Bat-scope, emergency turn lever, and the iconic Bat-shaped steering wheel, which is functional and turns the wheels of the car.
In addition to opening doors, hood, and trunk panels as well as LED effects for the headlights and an illuminated afterburner that is accented with jet sound effects add to the realism of the Fanhome Batmobile. With true attention to detail, this collectible Batmobile is a real collector’s delight. Throughout the subscription, collectors will trace the incredible story of Batman in DC’s comics, on TV, in animation, and on the big screen with special full-color magazines that accompany each month’s shipment of components.
Subscribers will enjoy an in-depth exploration of the evolution of the Batman franchise year-by-year, from the debut of the comic book in 1939 to the classic TV series and on to the blockbuster feature films. Explore Batman’s origins in an illustrated review of the comics and graphic novels that feature his most famous and powerful stories and meet the heroes and villains of the classic 60s Batman TV series with a show-by-show guide to all 120 episodes.
In addition to the aforementioned, subscribers to Fanhome’s Batmobile build-up model will also receive exclusive gifts such as an exceptionally detailed, 1:43 scale die-cast miniature of the Batmobile, perfect for a desktop or compact space. A trio of large (12×16 inches) full-color, frameable posters, a baseball cap, a ceramic mug, a Batmobile metal license plate replica, and a binder to archive the collected magazines.
