I grabbed the pic off the internet Steve, best I could find of the belt and goodies. This was such a cool toy, although even as a kid I thought it was wrong that it came with a gun. Everybody knew Batman didn't carry a gun!
Does (or did) anyone have one of these:
Maybe the 1966 Batman didn't carry a gun but the 1940's Batman sure did!
True Mike, but my main exposure to Batman at age 5 was the TV show. All he carried was a paunch!
Yea...what do you figure.....Adams art on the large Batman on the back?
Adam West was a travesty in the role, partially due to his physique which didn't exactly fit the mold of a superhero and partially due to his deadpan acting style. In fact, the TV show with its campy portrayal of Batman almost singlehandedly destroyed the whole concept of Batman. As such, it was hated by pre-existing Batman fans. Worse yet, DC dumbed down its whole superhero comic line to better conform with the TV show and take fuller advantage of its popularity. In effect, the fellows running DC mortgaged the future of their company for a short-term sales gain.
I'm now thinking Jim Aparo!
