Always a Batman fan after the sensational Adam West in the 60s TV series. I got plenty of fun out of this corgi set until the Batman figure fell victim to mum's vacuum cleaner. Robin couldn't quite step up to the plate after that. This great picture courtesy of www.qualitydiecasttoys.com
VINTAGE MATTEL TALKING MAJOR MATT MASON MIB SEALED RARE

Imaginative I know but he was the best player until an unfortunate accident involving being stepped on limited his career.
