Vintage Corgi Toys!

Here's some of the last classic collectibles I have to share with you, until I gather up more pics!


These are "Corgi Junior" Batman vehicles... which I guess means they're either smaller than regular Corgis... or maybe they're a little bigger, for smaller kids?


This, of course, is the classic Corgi Batmobile, probably the most popular Corgi toy of all time!


But I must say that their Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a definite contender for the title... there are a lot of avid collectors out there still hankering for one of these on their toy shelves!


Certainly a lesser-known Corgi (well, it was a surprise to me) was this Hardy Boys car... which was based on the Filmation animated series of the 1960s!


Recognize this Corgi toy? It's a starfighter from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and I had no idea until I found this pic that Corgi made one of those!

As I think I've mentioned before, Corgi also did some other very cool toys... I'd love to get their Yellow Submarine, for example, or their Monkeemobile. I used to have the some of their newest Batmobiles, but sold them a while back when money was tight.

Corgi also did a U.S.S. Enterprise... or was that Dinky? I always have a hard time remembering which did that one. I know they make several Enterprises these days.

A Corgi set I used to have was their Thunderbirds vehicles, based on the Gerry Anderson show. I'm not sure what happened to those!



  1. Hot Wheels issued a Batmobile in 2007!! Just like the 1960s version!

  2. Yep, I know... unfortunately, I never found one in the store, and haven't seen one in my price range offered on eBay yet!


  3. in australia those hot wheels batman cars were a dime a dozen in every supermarket and toy store

  4. Wow, nice to know the archives are being read!

    I have seen way more of the Hot Wheels Batmobiles on eBay than I've seen in all the stores I've looked here in the States!
