Toy Spotlight: Batman Escape Gun!
Well, here's one of the few carded Batman toys that actually had something remotely to do with Batman; even if it took about 25 years to really fit best! Of course, in the late 1960s when this toy came out, Batman exclusively used his Batarang to get a rope up to where he needed to climb to, but still, this toy came out -- and in two, colors, too! One has to wonder if memories of this toy sparked the late 1980s grappling gun seen in the Tim Burton Batman movie, and even moreso in the Bruce Timm Batman animated series?
