Hotwheels 1989 Batmobile
This is one of the most AWESOME Batmobiles I have in the collection, and I found it at none other than the local Grocery Store! See what I mean about cool stuff, man I love me some grocery shopping now a days! Back when I was a kid you were lucky to get a prize in your cereal, let alone the cereal. You know, you had to be good the whole time and at the end you could hit the cereal isle.
Well when Mattel got the license to do Batman, it was bound to happen that Hotwheels would release some cool swag. This is a 1:18 scale reproduction of the 1989 Batmobile, as seen in Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). I never did imagine I would see a Hotwheels car with this much detail, let alone this much weight. This thing is a solid little brick! But the amazing detail is what kicks this thing over the top. The cockpit opens like the movie, rotating gun hatches, the engine even slides out. I still cannot get over the amount of detail in the interior of this car. I've also included a shot with the regular sized Hotwheels 1966 Batmobile just to see how large this thing is.
All that and a bag of chips, and a gallon of milk, and some TP... Isn't grocery shopping a blast!
