    Yay! Another batch that has something in I owned once upon a time! I had the Batman collection (Batmobile, Bike and Copter) with the Joker’s Lancia Stratos(/) van and Daily Planet delivery truck. If I recall correctly there was also a Bat Speedboat too. It was made of plastic in two pieces so you could pry the top off and put in some baking soda, and if you used a heated needle you could carefully pierce a hole through the model’s exhaust pipes. Then when you put the Bat-boat into water the soda reacted and propelled it across your bath or sink!

      What a cool story about the Bat boat! I knew of the vehicle but didn’t know it could do that with a little customisation. The vintage Corgi Batman line is so cool, even the stuff they were releasing in the early 2000s was cool. I have Robin’s vehicle, a Batmobile and the Jokermobile.

        Hi TVTA, yes the modification is a little twist on the toy submersibles you could get that would sink to the bottom of your sink or bath, then the soda powder would bubble up causing gas which caused the sub to resurface. You just had to pierce a hole in the bottom of the Bat-boat and fill it up. I also had the larger scale Batmobile with the chain-cutter blade in the nose and rocket launcher tubes on the back.

            Very true, I also had the DB5 but a newer edition not one of the early releases. Corgi had a great reputation and as such movie/TV companies were comfortable giving licenses to them to produce the movie tie-in toys.

    Fantastic ads, especially the first one! I remember having those Bat-Vehicles, the Supermobile, and the Supervan! They were brilliant fun! I’m sure I had a batboat as well, sure I did, was there a batboat that hooked on the back of the batmobile tool?
