THE MATCHBOX BATMOBILE - FAKE OR FACT?
Here's an intriguing little item that I saw on some site or other (forget which) - a MATCHBOX BATMOBILE. Only thing is, as far as I'm aware, Matchbox never made a TV Batmobile, so I suspect this is a clever 'custom' job using a MATTEL Batmobile. If so, whoever did it has made an excellent job of creating the box and blister-pack - in fact, I'd buy this if it were available.
However, maybe I'm mistaken and Matchbox did indeed issue the Batmobile at some stage. Anyone know?
Actually, it could be legitimate, as I've just remembered while replying to reader McScotty's comment that Mattel owns the Matchbox brand, so they could simply have repackaged a Mattel Batmobile under the Matchbox name.
