60s Batman Battery-Operated Tin Toy from Nomura Toy

America’s classic superhero show 60s Batman TV series was very popular in Japan too. Lots of toys, comics (manga adaptations), and other merchandise produced exclusively in Japan were sold and marketed to kids at the time.

This Batman tin toy was made by Nomura Toy in 60s.
Nomura Toy made a lot of battery-operated tin toys, and this is one of them.
Batman walks forward, and his soft-vinyl face lights up when you push the button on his belt buckle.

Watch this video to see Batman in action! Pow!! Kapow!

The details of his face, vivid coloring, and boldness achieved from the shape of tin are particularly wonderful in making this Batman. The toy is highly desirable among Japan collectors too, and many people have already started bidding.
You can bid on battery-operated Batman tin toy by Nomura Toy via Yahoo auction too!

*Note about this item: Its original box is missing, so it will be just the toy itself. Batman’s face light doesn’t stay on all the time. It sometimes lights up and sometimes doesn’t.
