On the back of the blister pack it reads.......
“BATMAN streaks through Gotham City in this all new for 2019 take on the Batmobile by Hot Wheels! It’s armed to the grille with hidden misses, lasers, and other high-tech weaponry. Check out the rounded hood vents and the four gigantic rocket thrusters pointing out of the back.”
Excellent find on the 07! That’s when Hot Wheels finally started to put things right.

What a crazy experience. TONS of great stuff. I could have spent a fortune on just 1966 Batman items. Things from 2 dollars (hot wheels) to 2000 dollars (beautifully framed collection of autographs). Add in Star Wars77, Doctor Who, Jaws, and Ghostbusters and it’s was even more tempting. T-shirts, patches, pins, mugs, you name it, it was there.
I also saw Howard Chaykin, one of my favorite comic book artists. He wasn’t charging for his autograph or making people hurry. He was just sitting at a table and talking shop with anyone who wanted to meet him. If I had thought about it ahead of time, I would have brought an old 1970s Star Wars Marvel comic book. I’ll be better prepared next time.
Blue, I turned the joint upside down looking for your chrome 89 Batmobile, but came up empty. Like I said, now that I see what is available at these things, I’ll go again next time one is in town.
Glad you found the Mystery Machine Batmobile. Now you’ve found it, the stores will be full of them. LOL. Thanks for looking for the Chrome ‘89. I finally found one in an out of the way Walmart. So, I’m good there.
Oh well. I’ll buy as many as I come across. I may even leave them in the package. As you can see, I had mine out of the package as soon as got in the office. Put it on a purple notebook so I could recreate my avatar with the actual car.
Next time I’m headed to a Convention, I’ll post a heads-up in case anyone is looking for something in particular. It was craaazy full of stuff, Batman and others. Saw a guy in what may very well have been a Williams cowl. Really nice work either way.
I remember the first Hot Wheels '66 Batmobiles going for crazy money back in 2007 as we all hunted for those. The only item I can think of that has never seen wide release was the great 1/87 scale Batmobile. That must have been produced in small numbers because you can't get near one for less than $30 and that's on a good day.
Are there any similar items? The Mattel Batman Cowl now sells for silly prices, but there was a time when you could buy them for $50.
I do find it amusing when they offer a “best offer” option on a $5 item, you offer $4, they counter with the original $5. #fakenegotiation. Oh well back to the next Batman item...
