Essential Seven Lamest Batman (1966) Villains

The Adam West Batman TV show was always incredibly corny, and at times just plain odd. Each week different celebrities made appearances as the different villains who put Batman and Robin in danger, forcing them to find stupid escape methods. While some of the villains were enjoyable, a few were ridiculous with strange schemes that was quite embarrassing to watch. That is why this week we feature the Essential Seven Lamest Batman (1966) Villains:

1966 George Barris Batmobile

The 1966 Batmobile from the TV Series, in 1:18 scale is finally here. First of all, a little history. George Barris designed the Batmobile for the 1966 show (as well as other shows of the period) and maintains the rights to that car’s look. However DC owns the rights to the concept of the Batmobile and all of the insignia. To my knowledge, Mr. Barris and DC have never come to terms that both parties felt were fair, so this TV version Batmobile had never been officially produced. There are knock-offs of course and the comic version is very similar looking, but this the first officially licensed toy car from the show. The 1:64 (traditional Hot Wheels size) car came out last year, and we’ve been waiting for about 3 years since it was originally announced, so here it is, and it is indeed beautiful.

The doors open up, and every little detail is included. From the batphone to the little antennae in front of the doublebubble wind shield. Two minor gripes… there is no license plate decal (though there is a spot to stick one) and the dashboard is a little bare. But otherwise it’s remarkable.

The Batman LEGO line continues to impress me. The latest set is Batman’s Batcopter. This is the last of the traditional Batman vehicles. However, I wonder how many sets are in the future? It seems LEGO is about to run out of characters and vehicles. Until that happens we can enjoy great sets like this one:
