Looks like it would be well out of my price range unfortunately. :-[

Hi, Everyone!

I was able to pick up this somewhat-rare and unique limited release 2011 Polar Lights 1:25 1966 Batman Batmobile Deluxe Edition (kit number POL881).

Things about this glue-together kit that made it stand out from the other 2011 and on releases include:

  • Special box with no text on the top image
  • Parts molded in white
  • Figures from the 2010 1:25 snap-together model (kit number POL824) come unassembled and unpainted
  • Can build the Batmobile as seen in seasons 1, 2, or 3 with various additional optional parts
  • Different steering wheels and exhausts
  • Build the engine as the V8 or the jet turbine
  • Two sets of tires
  • Parts to build the car into the Birdmobile from the season 1 episode 22 "Not Yet, He Ain't" when the Penguin steals the Batmobile and makes it his own
  • 36 parts stainless steel photoech sheet

Here is the assembly instructions in Adobe Acrobat .PDF format: http://round2corp.com/model-kit-instructions/uploads/pol881.pdf

I was able to snag an open-box kit for $25.00 U.S.D. which isn't too bad at all.  The photoetch sheet makes it all worth it.

:)

That's practically a steal Gadgetron! The photo etch alone makes it worth it, since they never have sold it separately.

LOL
Sort of. Had to pay for a small fraction of it myself, hence why I was allowed to take a couple pics ...
