Superhero icon Adam West looked right at home as he was reunited with a trusty friend – the original Batmobile from his classic 1960s TV show.

West, who played the Caped Crusader on the TV show from 1966-1968, posed for photos in front of the famed vehicle alongside Brad Globe, president of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Jim Lee, DC Entertainment co-publisher,  at an event Thursday debuting merchandise based on the series.

“This TV series introduced a whole new generation to Batman and I am so proud to have been a part of that phenomenon.  Events like this remind us all of the legacy of the show and its staying power for generations to come; and it’s fun to play Batman said West.

The event showcasing toys based on the series also featured other memorabilia used on the TV show, including bat gadgets such as the Bat-Phone, Bat-O-Rang and Bat-Shield.

Here’s to hoping no one scratched the paintjob on the Batmobile during the event, as it’s likely quite valuable. In January, one of six Batmobiles produced for the show sold at auction for $4.6 million.
