If you've ever looked for collectibles on eBay, it should come as no surprise to you that some sellers just plain don't know what they're trying to sell! The above item may be a case in point... the seller was quite certain that it's a Corgi Batplane, but I've always thought it was an Azrak-Hamway International (AHI) Batplane! The style of the packaging certainly indicates that, but then there's that globe logo with the "C" around it...
Since none of my research has ever shown that Corgi used a different logo than the dog silhouette, I can only determine that this must've been licensed from AHI by a different company... one whose name starts with a "C" but isn't Corgi. It may have even been a British company (given the position of the globe in the logo), but since there aren't any words with British spellings, it's hard to say for certain!
The daily blog featuring photos of Batman-related merchandise going up through the 1970s, with a few 1980s items thrown in here and there! Your comments are welcomed!
Please note that I do not have any of these items for sale, and the vast majority of them are items I do not own at all. The photos were collected from eBay auctions over the years, and I wanted to share them with you all!
If you're interested in tracking down any of these items, I wish you luck, and hope that these posts help give you the information you need to find them offered on eBay! If you do purchase any of these items as a result of these posts, I'd love to hear about them -- and if you have better photos of anything I post here, I'd love to see them, too, and share them with my readers! You can email photos to me at waffyjon at comcast dot net. And if you link to a Batcave Trophy Room post, please let me know, and I'll add your blog to the blogroll!
