Since he first appeared on the scene in Detective Comics No. 27 in May 1939, Batman has been a massive influence on popular culture. He has inspired comics, blockbuster films and television series and was second only to Superman in the top comic book heroes of all time. Alongside all of these, he has also inspired a plethora of collectable toys from the golden age of toy production in the 1960s and 1970s such as diecast cars, replica gadgets and much more. In this book, which will appeal to those who remember the iconic 1966 television series just as much as to those captivated by Batman today, Rob Burman examines some of the best and some of the most unusual Batman collectables as well as looking at what might be collectable in the future.
