“To the Batmobile!”
That’s not just a classic line from the 1960s Batman TV show, it’s the theme of the Tweeterhead Batman Maquette Diorama you’re looking at right here. I still can’t tell you exactly what a maquette is, but it’s close enough to a statue that you get the idea.
What I can tell you is that Batman stands 12 inches tall and comes on a base that includes half of the Bat Computer. The other half wasn’t taken by Cesar Romero or Burgess Meredith, it’s just on the base of the Robin Maquette that Tweeterhead says is coming later this year.
You can tell just by looking at it that it’s a dead ringer for Adam West when he played the Caped Crusader, and the artists apparently spent a lot of time doing research on the original Bat-suit to make the one this maquette is wearing as authentic as possible.
If you need this for your personal Batcave, here’s some good news: you can pre-order it now from Sideshow Collectibles. It’ll set you back $259.99, though there’s an option to break that down into as many as four payments.
Batman is expected to ship in December, which could make for a very Merry Christmas for yourself. What, you didn’t really think I was going to suggest buying it for someone else, did you?
