Lincoln International Toys Batman Space Probe

This fantastic 1966 Batman (and Robin) “Space Probe” AKA Water or Bottle Rocket was produced by Lincoln International Toys of New Zealand. Note the metric / imperial currency listed on the bottom corner, 1966 was the year Australia (and NZ?) went metric. I was told by a toy retailer of the time that these were recalled by Lincoln because they were too powerful and dangerous for kids to play with, which probably explains their scarcity today. The card is approximately the size of an LP vinyl record, and the artwork is wonderfully 60’s.
