Holy Vanagon Batman! Check out this amazing Mego Mobile Bat Lab up for auction on eBay.
This is a complete Mobile Bat Lab scaled to fit 8” action figures (not included). It includes the Front End Foe Catcher, a Rear Winch with Bat-Grappling Hook and a Revolving Bat Platform for Outside Spying. The vehicle looks like the old Hippy VW bus, the side slides open, there is a wide bench seat and steering wheel, the roof slides open and the van is duly decorated with Batman insignia although some of the edges are lifting. It measures 15” x 8” x 6”. This toy has been gently used and could use some cleaning, but the box is dated 1975 and all things considered, it is a wonderful vintage toy, in great condition. I will be offering Batman, Robin & Penguin from 1974 over the next few weeks if you are interested in this series.
This thing would make an amazing showpiece in any Batman collection, and it even has the original box. I love the little Mousetrap-esque net on the front — there’s no way the dastardly Penguin could evade that trap!
Is Christmas coming soon? Santa, if you’re reading this, I’ve been a good boy this year (mostly).
This toy is being sold by a Church thrift shop, so bid high and bid often. Your money is going to a good cause.
