1/6 scale Batmobile at SDCC
07/26/10 at 4:40am
 
At the Mattel booth at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, they were displaying a 1/6th size Batmobile that was amazing!  It was under their "Art of Toys" exhibit as a work in progress, but I hope they release it.  (They usually do release the toys they tease at the Con.  Last year it was the Penguin's "Birdmobile".)

It looks like a Batmobile this scale would perfectly seat Mego-sized action figures.  Could a line of '66 Batman figures be a possibility, too?  (A guy can dream ...)

Looks amazing! But are you sure this is not a modeller's spectacular version of the GI Joe Batmobile we've seen before?
Cheers,
Terry

Wow, I just found this on an SDCC blog, but Ralph has beaten me to posting it! ha.

Too cool, Wes might be doing a lot more business if people realize they can fit an action figure in there!

At 1/6 scale , the Batmobile model would be for a GI Joe size 12"  figure.

A bit too large for a 8" inch mego. 1/6 scale would figure out to be 2" inches tall per foot ,  or a 12" figure would be 6' foot tall in scale.

A mego figure at 8" inches tall would only be 4' Tall in 1/6 Scale !


ZAP POW !!!

Oh, good grief, just when you though that Mattel had nothing left in a lrger scale to offer us Bat hungry fans...

Just taking a close look at the photo though....as TM mentioned, no stripes.  Also, those antlers and beacon light and the fact that it appears to be riding a shade too high on its under carriage...

A pantographed (is that the right word  Undecided) elite?

Still, a 1:6 scale 66Bat would be no bad thing, but I am a little off on the actual model size at 1:6th.  I have two 007 1/12th scale cars and they are BIG, this is the KYOSHO BMW Z8...



and...



The Z8 at the back is the autoArt 1:18 and the small one in the front is the 1:78 BMW dealer's promotional item (not sure who made it).  The one in the middle is the 1:12 but a 1:6 scale would bigger than this, yes?

Could the smallest one be actually 1/87?

I do hope that if they decide to market this Batmobile that they take it back to how the #1 looked when it was on the show.  I prefer those chrome rimmed seats that the #1 had...  but as was already noted.. there are many discrepancies....
