Batman 1966 Ideal Playset Batmobile JLA Justice League

Item History (General)

PLEASE NOTE: INFORMATION in the Item History section is REGARDING COMMON ATTRIBUTES TO THE ITEM (ie size, year of production, color, scarcity, etc).  None of what follows has anything SPECIFIC to do with this listing and the actual item could vary in terms of completeness or manufacturing variations. Please see "Item Condition" for specifics to this listing.

In the 1960s, Ideal put out a couple of great super hero playsets which pretty much covers Batman and the Justice League of America figures & villains.  The set was released with the perennial favorites like Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Joker.  There were also quite a few interesting "villains" - Keyman, Mouseman, Brainstorm, and my favorite figure, the Robot!  The playset also include various accessories - mountains, computers, buildings - all terribly out of scale and made from a very thin vaccuform plastic (making them difficult to find today).

This is an all original Batman Batmobile! It measures roughly 6" long.  The Batmobile itself was designed pretty nicely - and came in two versions - one of which actually included small figures of Batman and Robin.  This latter version is incredible scarce - in fact, we’re still looking for one to add to our personal collection!

 

Item Condition (Specific)

100% vintage 1966 - although windscreens are from the Aurora model kit (the Ideal windscreens are a bit thicker and have a clear crossbar that connects the two pieces). Clearly, one was copied from the other as the models are near identical. Very difficult piece to find.
