I’ve never really reviewed toys and figures on here before, but I figured this was a great place to start! Being that the entire Batman ’66 series just came to Blu-Ray/DVD, the show’s popularity has re-surfaced again after nearly 5 decades. This past weekend at Albany Comic Con whilst doing my walk around the dealer’s room, I came across the POP! Heroes 1966 Batmobile at one of the booths. Say what you want about The Dark Knight, but he’s definitely got the sweetest wheels of anyone in the comic book world.
Naturally, being such a big fan of the Bat myself, and of — yes, the super cheesy 1966 Television show of the same name, I had to finally buy myself this toy. The POP! Batmobile comes with the 3 3/4inch Batman figure, and holds one figure behind the wheel.
I thought the paint job done on this toy was actually awesome! A lot of toys and figures you see today really lack in the paint detailing, but this is a total exception. Even the tiny steering wheel has the Bat-Symbol where the horn would be!
Batman himself isn’t too shabby either in the paint detailing! Even though Funko POP! Figures have those strange facial features like big eyes and minimal facial detail, little Batsy’s paint work is pretty awesome! The detailing on his utility belt alone is super impressive.
My only gripes with the Batmobile are the inability to put Robin next to Batman in the car, since it only seats one due to the POP! figure dimensions. Also, the car is not actually operational, meaning the wheels are stationary.
Other than those two tiny nit picking details, I really enjoy this addition to my Funko POP! Collection and love the way it looks up on my mantle. I’ll definitely be collecting the rest of the ’66 Bat POP! figures, since I’ve got Batman and Joker already. The POP Heroes: 1966 Batmobile goes for around 30 dollars and can be found in stores such as Barnes and Noble and Hot Topic. However, I snagged mine for 25 dollars at the convention. Pretty sweet deal for some sweet wheels!
