I bought the Batman and Robin figures on a trip to Singapore last year and have been waiting for a Batmobile to go with them.

I don't really need another Batman though. I wonder if there's a cheaper release with just the car.

A site called Animepoko.com has them for $100 off retail.
Animepoko Batmobile
I don't know a thing about them, but that's a good price.

I'm totally confused on what the Herocross line is. I recall the Mezco stuff, and Hybrid Metal Figuration, but this seems different.

Big Question: Do the wheels move?

Herocross appears to be a separate company all together, based out of Hong Kong. You can read all about them on their site...

They're the company that make the metal-hybrid range which is why this Batmobile both goes with, and comes with a '66 Batman figure.

Good question about the wheels.

Is the Batman figure the same as the Hybrid Metal Figuration Batman? It looks similar but I don't know.

Video appears to answer the question. Plus, the Batmobile doubles as a Bluetooth speaker!

I've got the figure already, and the one in the pictures above and the ones on the Herocross website appear to be the same.

It's rather unlikely it'll be different I'd have thought. Herocross must, logically, be the same people who produced both the figures and the Batmobile itself. I can't think of an example where accessories were made by someone different to the main range.

Off the top of my head, Mattel, Dorbz and Mezco were the manufacturers of '66 Batmobiles that went exclusively with their figure ranges.

I would love to know how it looks with the Mego figures, it looks bigger than the old 70s Mego Batmobile

I hadn't watched the video, so thanks for highlighting it.

So it appears the wheels do move.
