I love how the entire ad is in Japanese EXCEPT the words 1966 Batmobile.

I feel like I'm in a time warp. What old is new again. See these threads

This was reported on in detail in 2016. Try and do keyword searches before posting. All I ask.

These are available in the US and are found on ebay and Amazon.
I got one of these recently and it was a total let down. It measures about 6" and is made of cheap plastic. The best thing about it is the Batman and Robin figures, especially the standing version. For what it costs it should be a lot better.

Hey.

I have a source in Japan and obtain items (mostly animal and dinosaur models and figures (but anything of interest) for over 100 international buyers at prices in virtually all cases better than are available on eBay (often faaar... better), even with our small profits.

If anyone is interested in this model (or anything else), please let me know and in the meantime I'll get a price which I'll provide via PM.

Thanks.
Brett

Thanks for the heads-up, guys. Carefully looking at the images, its not as accurate as I would prefer.

In addition to the sloppy RED paint, and no tag on the rear, the trunk on mine will not open.

The ad makes a couple references to 1/35, typical armor model scale (great if you want to make a diorama with an AFV 1/35 scale M3A3 Stuart tank painted gold for the Penguin and Marsha!).
