I just ordered that box for the Corgi display. When I get it, i’ll post a picture with both for comparison. I ordered 2 boxes, but sadly there was no shipping break :cry:

I have the 66 Batmobile as a Mattel Toy, but will be getting the Hot Wheels Elite 1:18 soon.

I think I'll keep an eye out for that. I like the '70s coloring.

OK gang, some goodness arrived from the UK.

Grabbed a loose Corgi Jr Batmobile, and unboxed a Hot Wheels Corgi Jr Tribute car, and just arriving today all the way from across the pond, a reproduction Corgi 267 box and insert in 1/64 scale

Note the wheelbase is too long for the wheel holes. Also, the length of the HW car is longer than the box. The Corgi fit like a banana in a peel!

Lengthened the wheel opening in the base to have the car sit. Next step - Batman and Robin are inserted. I need to check if my guy in Oz ever sent the other pieces.

Happy Christmas Bat Chums.

Nice. Has similar coloring to the 1980's comic Batmobile.

Just got. I didn't have the version with the model box. Interesting that the car wouldn't fit in the box. Lol

I wonder if you can get the Corgi Box reduced to 1/64 like they’ve done with the Batmobile box. That would be pretty slick.
Did you see the other variant from JL, a chrome green?
