Holy Diecast Batman!

Corgi jrs Batman

Another bit of vintage toy industry advertising. Growing up, Corgi Jrs were some of the coolest diecast around, not only because of their Superhero lines (I still have my Batmobile and Batcopter) but because they seemed to license almost every cool car from TV and movies including James Bond and Starsky and Hutch. Hopefully I'll do more on these later...

I remember the Bat Copter and the James Bond Lotus, and I still have my Starsky & Hutch Grand Torino!

Those were some great Die Cast, thanks for the flashback!

I have a plastic Batmobile sitting on my shelf right now that looks very similar. It's by Simms INC.

Incredible powers?! Super-human exploits?!?!

Well at least they were right about how cool the Batmobile is.
