RIGHT, ALTOGETHER NOW - "DAH-DAH-DAH-DAH-DAH-DAH-DAH - BATMAN!"
AURORA BATMAN kit - built & painted by me
Another big TV hit of the
'60s was BATMAN, which -
much like The MAN From U.N.C.L.E. - resulted in a
wealth of merchandising.
Released in 1965 - some
months before the TV show
hit the screens - the AURORA
plastic model kit of the Caped Crusader no doubt benefitted
from a boost in sales due to the
popularity of the programme
when it aired in 1966.
Thought you might like to
see it. And it's all mine. Oh,
and here's the box, too.
