BTAS Batmobile 2008
I've been following various forums and blogs that have been featuring the new Hotwheels Batman 1/64th scale line for a few weeks. I have personally seen most of the vehicles in the line at the store, save the Tumbler (the movie Batmobile) and the Comic Version of the Dark Knight's car. I have to date only picked up the 1960's Television Show's Batcycle and this one. Probably the one I was most excited to see since Batman the Animated Series (BTAS) hasn't really had product since the cartoon aired in the 90's.
I for one am glad to see the Animated Series represented. A lot of people think this car is a brick, but I really appreciate the design on this one. It's a sort of hybrid of the older movie designs and the "retro future" design of the Animated Series.
Here's the Batmobile in the title sequence of Batman the Animated Series, the best cartoon opening ever in my opinion!
