Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

This guy has stickers for the Corgi https://diecaststickerman.webs.com There are many more videos on restoration. Also there is a larger scale version of the Corgi. The Corgi is 1/43, and this other one is a POLITOYS POLISTIL 1/32 scale. It’s kind of neat to see a slightly larger Corgi. I have an o...

Re: Quick Question - Name of a recent Batman spoof?

I watched it in its entirety last night. Very entertaining! A few years ago, I believe I only saw the scene on YouTube where Adam was groping Yvonne and dismissed the whole thing. I didn’t realize Adam and Burt were in it!

Re: Quick Question - Name of a recent Batman spoof?

Could it be "Return to the Batcave", a made for tv biopic from the early 2000s? Yeah, that’s it! Thank you! I saw part of it a while back, kinda didn’t like the way they were depicting Adam West, and didn’t finish it. I’ve lightened up a little since then...and I also just discovered Adam and Burt ...

Quick Question - Name of a recent Batman spoof?

I watched parts of a Batman / Adam West spoof / parody a while back. They showed Adam being really into putting on the Batman costume, while Burt was having trouble...Burt was star struck by Frank Gorshin, Batgirl was there... I didn’t see the whole thing and can’t for the life of me remember what i...

Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

In the case of a restoration, see if you can find the right packaging too. I have a reproduction package, and a diarama. Back in the day, a guy named UKSteve made some really excellent backdrops,including an airfield for the Batcopter Thanks, Szabol! I’ve thought about that. The “period correct” pa...

Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

Although not true to how the Corgi Batmobile looked, this custom restoration still looks pretty awesome. http://www.batmobile.free.fr/Images/Restorations/untitled3.jpg From http://www.batmobile.free.fr/English/Restorations.htm That seems to be THE definitive site on the Corgi 267 Batmobile! If you ...

Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

I was one of those that got the flat black no tow hook original Batmobiles back in the day. That car is long gone. I used to see the two pack and three pack gift sets at Kmart/Kresge’s and at Sears in the mid and late 70’s, but never bought one. If I had seen the 1966 movie, I might have. The last ...

Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

http://www.batmobile.free.fr/English/Body/Bodystyles.htm After doing some reading this evening, I discovered they painted the 1st corgis flat black because that’s the way the Batmobile was before the show came out. That leads me to believe that Corgi was on board before the show even started. I als...

Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

I just bought a Corgi 267 Batmobile on eBay! At $65.00 including shipping, it sounds like a good deal. I did very little shopping around and this was an impusle purchase. It should get here in about a week. If I like it as is, I might leave it alone...not sure. What do you think? https://i.imgur.com...

Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

Not restored, but this is my Corgi Batmobile and still my favourite for sentimental reasons. Parents gave it to me sometime in the early to mid ‘70’s. Is it “screen accurate”, no, but there’s lots of Batman ‘66 stuff produced today that is far from “screen accurate” and fans (including me) buy and ...

Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

I agree the Corgi has a charm despite, or maybe because of, its flaws. I had one as a kid and I still haven't nailed down which edition it was. I know it was not a first generation, because it came with the trailer and boat. ( I always wondered why the boat wasn't destroyed when Batman fired up the...

Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

SprangFan, You are 100% correct. I have a Hot Wheels 1:50 scale ‘66 Batmobile on my desk at work & it’s beautiful...perfect, actually. Very accurate, beautiful paint. It’s only going to be slightly smaller than a Corgi 267 so I should be satisfied, right? Wrong! It is not that big mysterious car wit...

Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

1. I bought and watched every Batman TV episode on blu Ray, most more than one time. I found the music from the “Sensational Bat-boys” album. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/KYYAAOSwPc9WwSMO/s-l300.jpg (For years, I mistakenly thought that was the soundtrack for the TV show - hey, I love that music!)...
