Adam West Signed Batman ’66 Diamond Select Exclusive Bust

One of the biggest phenomenons in television history, the 1960’s Batman TV series influenced an entire generation of fans and possibly even helped save the Batman comics themselves from cancellation.  Debuting in 1966, it changed Batman from a reasonably successful DC comic character into a true global icon.  The series also created a merchandising bonanza exceeded only by Star Wars a decade later, turned the Batmobile into the most recognized fictional car of all time (surpassing all others contenders, before or since, including such icons as KITT, the General Lee, and James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5), and forever added it’s own catch phrases into the pop-culture lexicon- such as Robin’s famous “Holy…” whatever quips and “Same Bat-Time, same Bat-Channel.” 

In significant ways the TV series also made lasting contributions to the comic book continuity; the creation of Batgirl – a character specifically introduced into the comics for inclusion in the Television series – and, perhaps most importantly, returning to prominence the four classic villains of the Joker, Catwoman, the Riddler, and the Penguin (all of which were shelved for years due to the impact of Fredric Wertham’s anti-comics exposé Seduction of the Innocent).  

This bust, signed by hand by Adam West, pays tribute to the iconic series.  It is a Diamond Select Previews Exclusive bust and is limited to only 3,000 produced (of which this is #1,569).  It is in mint and undisplayed condition, comes in its original excellent condition box and will be shipped with the utmost care. Stands approximately six inches tall. Please note- the signature is real. It is the actual, hand-signed signature of Adam West. It is not a copy, print or pre-printed image.
