BATMAN ’66 BAT-RADIO Replica to Be Released in 2022

Holy walkie-talkie!

Well, this is kind of neat and certainly unexpected (at least to me): Paragon FX Group has created a replica of the Batman ’66 Bat-Radio and it will be available for purchase later this year.

Dig this SNEAK PEEK — as well as the official description:

Batman (The Television Series) premiered January 12, 1966 and ran for three seasons.The series follows the adventures of millionaire Bruce Wayne and his ward Dick Grayson. A crime fighting duo who as, “Batman and Robin” defend Gotham City from a colorfu lnetwork of archvillains. The 120th episode aired on March 14, 1968. Throughout the series, Batman and Robin utilize a myriad of high-tech devices in their pursuit of Gotham’s most villainous. Among the seemingly endless amount of gear stored within their utility belts is the Bat-Radio. Capable of clean transmission throughout Gotham, this bat shaped 2-way transceiver (walkie-talkie) insured the Dynamic-Duo were in constant communication when otherwise separated.

The original props (primarily manufactured in wood) were hand cut and adorned with collapsible brass antenna. A simple light, denoting transmission was the only other feature present on the hero models. Paragon FX Group in association in Warner Bros. proudly presents this official replica of the Bat-Radio. Prior to production, Paragon’s staff spent months studying the history of the original props to ensure that the replica you have before you becomes a cherished part of your personal collection.

Product Features
Made of plastic
Based on the 1966 Batman TV show
Officially licensed
9V battery required for light and sound effects (not included)

A few thoughts:

— The Bat-Radio lists for $249.99.

— It’s expected to be released this Christmas season. An exact date hasn’t been announced, but that’s not uncommon in the world of toys and collectibles.

— Is it worth it? That depends on your personal circumstance. But Paragon is certainly trying to do its part to load up your utility belt: They have a replica Bat-Shield coming too.

  6. $250 for “lights and sound effects”?? I know it’s been a while but they made Star Trek phasers, communicators, etc for about $25. I’m not even sure how real Batman fans would consider this purchase.
