I always kind of wanted a Mego Batmobile, but never had much incentive to get one until recently, when I saw Scott Brown’s custom ’66 Batmobile for sale in a Facebook group. I couldn’t resist snatching it up.
It’s a gorgeous piece of work that’s a dead ringer for the one seen on TV. It really makes the original plain black ‘mobile feel complete. It really is a smooth ride, too: the wheels are perfect and it rolls smoother than silk. It’s bigger and chunkier than I had expected as well, so finding shelf space to display it is kind of difficult.
Really glad I snatched it up when I did. It’s the only Mego vehicle I ever took interest in, and I got the best possible incarnation of it. (there’s a Japanese version covered in gaudy decals, too.)
