“Atomic batteries to power! Turbines to speed!” Hearing that, fans of the Batman classic TV series knew that it was only a matter of seconds before the mighty Batmobile roared out from its subterranean lair to race toward whatever trouble awaited the Dynamic Duo in Gotham City only 14 miles ahead! Now fans of all generations can get under the hood, behind the wheel and closer than ever before to all the wonders of this world-famous supercar with Batmobile Cutaways: Batman Classic TV Series, new from Eaglemoss Hero Collector, designers, manufacturers and publishers of high-quality collectibles from across the many worlds of pop culture.
Written by Richard Jackson, Alan Cowsill and James Hill, this 72 page visual reference guide features original cutaway artwork approved by Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, as well as lavish illustrations and photos highlighting every vehicle from the TV series – the Batmobile, Batcycle, Batcopter, Batboat, Jokermobile, Kitty Car and more. Meticulously created cutaways also reveal hidden details and gadgets, including the Mobile Crime Computer, Bat-Ram, Batphone, afterburner, Detect-A-Scope, rocket launchers and “bat turn” parachutes. Additional features include detailed blueprints and schematics from the original design and fabrication overseen by master custom car fabricator George Barris, plus dozens of images from DC Entertainment’s vast archive of over 75 years of Batman comics, films and television adventures.
Best of all, the book comes packaged in a deluxe window-box featuring a 1:43 scale die-cast metal collector’s model of the iconic 1966 Batmobile itself – parked in its own diorama display of the Batcave!
