RARE Vintage 1960's BATMAN TV SHOW TOYS!!

Now it's ONLY my personal opinion but I think some of the best Vintage Batman Toys made were during the 1966 TV Show series. I think maybe because that's what I grew up with & it's where my childhood memories are. Of course, younger collectors like the toys from their childhood & that's either the 1989 Batman Movie or the Batman Animated Series, which I really love too. Here are some examples of the great stuff made in the 1960's!! The 1st photo is the MAGIC-MAGNETIC GOTHAM CITY PLAYSET made by REMCO. This vintage Batman toy was HUGE & had buildings, figures, etc. It's also pretty RARE as I have never seen one! This photo was sent in by a loyal BAT-BLOG reader named Jake ( Thanx Jake! ). The 2nd picture is a wonderful store display card selling Batman Combs. This is a beautiful masterpiece of ART & deserves to be in the design collection of the Museum of Modern Art, ha ha!! The last item is, of course, the classic 1966 Batman Boardgame made by Hasbro. This is one of my favorites because the actual game board has such cool artwork, worthy of framing. They really designed this one very well as they usually stamp some kind of generic art on these. Remember, you can always click on the photos to see larger ones that are more detailed & be sure to check out the BAT-BLOG ARCHIVES for many many more Vintage Batman Memorabilia like Mego, Corgi, Kenner, TransOgram, Ideal, etc...

Those are beautiful examples of the great toys from that era! The Remco Magnetic City has always been a holy grail of mine. I do have the Hasbro game, and it does indeed have a beautiful game board design! Keep the 1966 toys coming!!!

So do you have any Batman combs yourself?

Hmm. I always thought Gotham was a bigger city than that!

The board game art does look cool. I wonder if there's a closer shot of the board anywhere.
