hey guy's and gal's,
back in the mid 1970's i was glued to the t.v watching all the great re-runs from a decade earlier. batman was probably my #1, also star trek, the tos of course, lost in space, etc....i owned all the mego batman figures. man i thought those were the best looking figures i had ever seen when i was a kid. i had all the superhero's. but batman was my favorite.
fast forward 35 years and my goal is to get whatever is possible from that 1966 batman show. to me adam west was the coolest, lol...rich, fancy car, superhero, to me he had it all. i have been trying my best over the years to get the figures made of those great chracters. remember batgirl, catwoman, played by a few, riddler, penquin, etc etc, all played by the great t.v actors of the time. burgess meredith was awesome. that penquin quack was the best, frank gorshin, vincent price, yvonne craig, lee mreiwhether, ertha kitt, ceaser romero, etc etc... i hope to post all of what i have from the show, hopefuly other 1966 batfans will enjoy seeing them in 1/6th.......

anybody and everybody please add comments or your own childhood memories, also any customs you have of your won, the more the better.:wave

These are ALL outstanding.
I have recently gotten back into a whole "superhero" genre kick thanks to watching the '66 Batman film with my son.
I am in midconversion of a '66 Ken Batman to fully poseable crimefighter and I even dug out my old (GI Joe) Batmobile to start/finish.
Where did you get all those sculpts? Are they available or simply one-offs to entice us?
Is you Batmobile completely from scratch or a conversion?
Do you do you own costuming or are they made by someone else [who?]
You've certainly fueled my Batcustom desires.!!

My God this collection.....Your collection is absolutely.......BEAUTIFUL!!! I have been around this hobby for over 40 years and have never seen any greater detail then what your 66 Batman collection entails. This is truly a Great collection. :clap

I would love to have a custom 1/9 Batmobile with same detail for my 8'' Mego Batman & Robin, and the new 66 Batman collection being released soon by FTC. Pics below.......

Congratulations on putting together an epic '66 Batman collection. Those vehicles are flat-out amazing! I like the Bat Boat a lot but the Bat Copter is an incredible piece of work. Maybe next will be a Bat Cave dio? You gotta have somewhere for Batman to park his vehicles.

Those look incredible. I can't imagine what it cost to get them commissioned, but they look worth it. Amazing.
