TJR’s Video Pick of the Week #13: “TV’s Original Batmobile Sells at Auction for $4.2 Million!”

While collectors and fans of 1:6 scale continue to wait patiently for the arrival of Hot Toys’ new 1:6 scale ’60s Batmobile, we thought you would enjoy seeing the real thing selling at a recent auction featuring custom car guru George Barris and his one and only “Number 1 Batmobile.” As they say in the video, the sale of this iconic American custom car is “truly historic.” Watch as the excitement grows, and the bids slowly creep up to its final selling price of a WHOPPING $4.2 million dollars

    I think it would have been just too hilarious if the winning bid was made by someone with the given name of Bruce Wayne.

    I wish I had that kind of budget for toys…er, I mean “collector’s items”. Of course, now I don’t feel too bad about blowing $700 at Cotswold this year.

    Gak! I WILL have the Hot Toys version, even though it will probably cost nearly as much as the original!
