“Official Batman Utility Belt” in Reproduction Window Box, 1966, Ideal Toy; box is 26 x 16”, and a dead-ringer for the real one; contains a complete, original issue of one of the rarest, most sought-after Batman toys. This incredible set includes: a bright yellow molded plastic Bat-Belt, w/ slots, hooks, clips and a “Bat-Storage Pouch” (compartment); it accommodates all of the following crime fighting tools: “Bat-Signal Flash(light)”), “Bat-Grappling Hook”, “Bat-Rope”, “Bat-a-Rang”, “Bat-Gun Launcher”, “Bat-Cuffs”, “Batman Message Sender Dart”, “Dummy Transmitter”, and a “Bat-Rocket Grenade Dart”. The cap-firing grenade dart (small head) and the gun (no logos, black trigger) are rare variations of these pieces. Everything is original issue, except 2 specific parts: the “Dummy Transmitter” sticker is quality matte-finish copy, and the black message grenade head (only) is a new professional repro. There are only 2 condition issues with this beautiful set: a small piece is missing from one of the clips on the belt (visible in photos to the right of the buckle); and the gun’s front sight is missing; everything else is C9 to NM; (NOTE: a reproduction Bat-a-Rang is shown in the photo, but it has been replaced by the consignor with a C8 original... we will add photos of the real 'rang shortly). Original box examples of this toy sell for close to 10K; this is a rare opportunity to add a beautiful example of a ‘holy grail’ ‘66 Batman toy to your collection.
