Batman's Wayne Foundation

A very rare item , the Wayne Foundation comes with a working elevator to help you traverse four floors of fun. This will be the Crown Jewel of your Mego Batman Collection until you get your Secret Identities.

This playset was designed by DC Comics and it shows in it's attention to bat detail. From the Giant Penny and Dinosaur on Level two to a cameo by Bat Mite, this is the best Batman playset ever produced. The elevator doesn't work very well but who cares?

Robin shows off the Bookcase's secret compartments.

We now know this classic artwork is by Neal Adams and wow, is it sweet. Note the appearance of Joker, Riddler, Lex Luthor and One of the Metal Men (!) I seriously doubt Mego ever planned figures of the Metal Men. The center picture of Superman was used Earlier on the Comic Action Heroes Fortress of Solitude playset, Hawkeye has been replaced with the more logical Green Arrow.(see pic below)
