Batmobile - Does size matter ???

Post by ZAP_POW »

Hi everyone , I haven't been on for a while but I thought that I would share a few photos that I took of some of my Batmobiles in my collection. I thought it would be neet to see them from the Smallest to the Largest , There were many more in my collection , but they would not all fit into one photo. So ... here is the best ones .... From Largest to the Smallest.

1. Joe Mobile , GI Joe Size 1:6

2. New Mattel 2012 Batmobile 1:12

3. Hotwheels 1:18

4. Polar Lights Snap-Together Model 1:25
(With Figures).

5. Elite Batmobile 1:43

6. Corgi 267 Batmobile ?

7. Hotwheels 1:50

8. Hotwheels 1:64

9. Corgi Junior ?

10 Hotwheels 'MINI' Batmonile 1:87

The Second car ,
Next to the Larger one IS the Newest 1:12 Batmobile from Mattel. This is the HARD TO FIND car !

The 1:12 Batcycle that came out a few years ago, Is also the same scale as the NEW Mattel 2012-13 Batmobile , They go together very nice.


The First car,
It was produced by James Desimone , He is a Gi Joe Collector , and a Gi Joe Convention Promoter and Author. He sells these somtimes on eBay as the ' JOE-MOBILE'.

I have seen them 'Buit Up' on eBay , with asking prices in the 4 Didgit numbers !!!
(You can purchase them much cheaper).

I dont know if this is stiil a good active web address , but look here for the Joe-Mobile.
http://www.gijoeinformation.com , Go to the GIjoe Supply Depot link box.
I am not sure if he still has these available, or if they are still for sale anywhere.
I bought my 1:6 Batmobile over 10 years ago.

The 1:6 Joe Mobile is large enough to fit Two 12" Figure into it (See My Photo) , but its actual dimentions are not accurate to the real car , but.... it is a fun car to own. and if you modeling skills are decent, it is easy to change from its Basic kit form into a decent looking Batmobile , even though not totaly correct.

Do a search here on the board , I do beleive I have in the past seen other threads on this 1:6 Batmobile.

Would it be true to say, "The smaller the Batmobile, the more concentrated the fun"? I love these comparison pictures. I do something similar when I have different-sized action figures depicting the same character. :D

great pics. I was just thinking about a few others you might add

There's a 1/10 or 1/9 custom on eBay

The Mego 1/8 scale

The Aurora/Polar Lights 1/32

The 1/55 Mattel Batmobile

Beautiful job detailing the Joemobile. One of these days I'll get around to building and detailing mine.
Some days you just can't get rid of a ... SHARK!

Where does one get the true 1/87 batmobile? The smallest one I have is the corgi jr.

I have all of the others, except I sold my unfinished joemobile a few years back...I just did not have space for it.

Look on eBay for the 1:87 Batmobile .

It was made by Hotwheels and it is REALLY TINY. it comes in a nice SMALL box with a Clear Display Cube. They were nearly impossable to find on the shelf , and are still a bit rare , and VERY expensive when you can find one.
