RARE 1960's Japanese BATMAN on BAT-CYCLE WIND-UP FIGURE - Japan!

Vintage Batman Toy Collectors are gonna totally droll all over these pretty photos!! Here's an extremely RARE piece of Bat-memorabilia from the 1960's that was made in Japan. The Japanese always make extremely cool items but this one is kind of wacky! It's a Batman Wind-Up Figure riding a Bat-Cycle ( actually a tricycle! ) that has a large bell on the back. Some of the pieces are tin metal, while others are celluloid plastic ( very fragile ). There is even a cloth cape, a nice touch. This thing is just completely wonderful!! I really love the vintage graphics & the overall coloring of this item is bizarre! ( Thanks to Ben for sharing the pics with us)
