The last of the Johnny Lightning "build your own" die cast vehicles, here is the Bat Gyro! This awesome little plane-a-copter comes straight from the early 30's Batman comics.
The Bat Gyro has a gloss black finish, with matte black accents, the wings have the scalloped bat wing edges as does the tail. two seats, fixed landing gear, a prop protruding from a bat masked engine cowling and a large rotor prop on top. The parts come pre painted like the other little models and most are plastic, with the exception of the main fuselage which is die cast. The only way to have made these better, include some little Batman and Robin figures to stick in them like airplane models.
I really wished that this series would have had a little longer life span, it was sort of fun getting these, doing some simple assembly and having a pretty polished display vehicle. I would have liked to seen at least four more from the 70's, 80's, and 90's. I still wants me that Frank Miller Bat-Tank from the Dark Knight Returns!
