Collectible Time #56: Moebius/Affleck Batmobile and Krypto Model Kits

Riding on the current DC Multiverse explosion, I purchased two more kits from Z&Z Hobbies: each Moebius produced.

The initial is Ben Affleck's Batmobile from "Batman v Superman". 

I never encountered a Batmobile I didn't like, and this is no exception. It captures the sleekness of Michael Keaton's vehicle with elements of Christian Bale's thrown in for good, rough-and-tumble measure. The assembled, styrene kit measures a stunning 12" in length and comes packaged with attractive graphics. 

On the Superman--or rather Superboy--side of things, I purchased a vinyl kit of Krypto: Kal-El/Kent's faithful, flying friend. 

This particular representation of the 60-year-old canine comes with an actual cloth cape and measures a decent 5" in height when assembled: an impressive embodiment of cuteness and heroism if ever there was such. Also, the box artwork exudes colorful cheer.

The Batmobile sells for about $45 and Krypto for about $25. Both are well worth every penny for those who fancy a little of the old and new among their DC attainments.
