TO THE BATCAVE! Those three words evoke one of the most memorable interior locations in pop culture -- and if you're at Comic Con International: San Diego this summer, Factory Entertainment has a look at the cave that you have to see to believe.
The Batcave has enjoyed many iterations over the years, both in print and on screen. One of the most enduring and iconic was the version that featured in the classic 1966 Batman TV series.
Now, for just under $800, you can own a super-detailed sculpture of the cave from Factory Entertainment that outstrips pretty much anything you've seen yet.
Because of the many variations in the Batcave seen on screen, Factory's model does not attempt to duplicate a particular arrangement from a given episode or a specific scene. Rather it replicates the "feel" of the Batcave set as it is most commonly seen.
(This is their philosophy; we've seen almost exactly that description before in other figures, sculptures, and replicas from shows like Batman and Star Trek where consistency wasn't always key.)
The inclusion of movable elements allows you to customize the look of the cave around a core group of fixed parts, including the prominent "atomic pile," which are presented in their most common positions.
The classic Batman TV series' Batcave was a riot of color, with a uniquely 1960's atheistic. Each model contains more than 16 LED lights, in a variety of hues, both fixed and animated, that bring the Batcave to life, including hidden floor lights, to emulate the large floodlights with colored gels that were used on set; a pulsating color change effect inside the Atomic Core; and flashing lights in select monitors and screens.
This model is not a static piece; it features a host of moving parts including:0comments
- A turntable that can be manually rotated.
- Selected movable furniture that allows you to dress the set as you prefer.
- A faux rock door panel in the entrance tunnel that can be removed to allow access entry by the Batmobile. (Batmobile model not included).
The piece clocks in at 18" x 14" x 9" and weighs over 20 pounds...so maybe make sure to bring a few extra bucks to check it after you buy, so you don't end up carrying the box around San Diego all day.
