Before I begin with this Batmobile a little trip down memory lane to one of the best Father's Days ever. I was the receipent of not only a little Hibachi, but all three of the Batman Forever model kits! Yep, the Batmobile, Batwing and Batboat. I still have my Batmobile and Batwing, I gave in on the Batboat, my son wanted to use it as a pool toy that summer. Good times.
Back to this Batmobile, this would be the Kenner Batmobile from Batman Forever. It's a one seater, but man is that a cushy looking seat.
Just like the movie it has the fin that can split, which is cool because when I built the model version I glued the fins open.
You know you have to have something shoot off the Batmobile, so this time the grill gets to double as a missile.
The fins on the back fenders pop up to reveal a couple of machine guns, I guess in case you get caught in a chemical factory and needed to shoot the door, because we all know Batman wouldn't shoot bad guys.
The sweetest feature, the light up blue engine. Okay by todays standards this is not a big deal but back in the nineties, too cool. A funny side note, it takes two C size batteries to light this bad boy up and there is even an access door so you can replace the light bulb in case it burns out.
So there you have the Batman Forever Batmobile, coming in over 12 inches long, another free wheeler.
