Here’s a look at the upcoming Hot Wheels 2019 Classic 1966 Batmobile. It’s part of the E case.

A look at Hot Wheels upcoming Entertainment series. From https://hotwheelscollectors.mattel.com/ ... l-vehicles: DC movie vehicles faithfully recreated, these six die-cast/die-cast vehicles arrive in January on colorful blister cards associated with the film in which they first appeared.

Some images of a couple of the Batmobiles. No ‘66 Batmobile and the other two Bat-vehicles are the Batwing and The Bat.

THAT is a must-have. :P
There is also a new BTAS coming in 2019. I’ll be getting both.

I would like to see some of the 1:50 scale Batmobiles and vehicles in this scale. That’s some 10 or so more vehicles.
Batboat
Batcycle
Super friends Batmobile
1940’s Batmobile
1950’s Batmobile
1960’s Batmobile
1970’s Batmobile
1980s Batmobile
Etc.these latter vehicles are from the comics
Corgi and Johnny Lightening and Mattel already have these in other scales

I agree. Why HW haven’t produced them in 1:64 scale is a mystery. They keep doing the same ones and I’m just not a fan of the tank-like Batmobiles. The Super Friends and the comic book Batmobiles are high on my wish list.

Heh, might be. Speculation is it might be a “Red Edition”, which is a Target exclusive. The picture I posted is the international version / short card, so no mention of Red Edition.

Have you seen the recent news......?

DC Switches Toy License from Mattel to Spin Master

Toronto-based Spin Master Corp. will be the new licensee for DC in the boys’ action category, remote control and robotic vehicles, water toys, and games and puzzles, displacing El Segundo-based Mattel. The three-year global agreement with Warner Bros. begins in spring 2020. Mattel will keep some of its licensing rights, including for preschool and girls’ toys, Goldman analyst Michael Ng said in a note to clients.

https://batman-news.com/2018/12/26/dc-t ... in-master/

None of the articles I have read mention Hot Wheels, so I’m not sure if they come under the boys’ action category or not. I hope not as something as simple as finding a $1 Hot Wheels Batmobile while shopping can easily bring a smile to my face.

Hey TP,

Saw this online and thought you’d get a kick out of it. It’s the BTAS Batmobile Monster Truck. :lol:

Oh no - it's a Treasure Hunt?
Man, I'll be looking for that as long as you've been looking for the chrome 89 Treasure Hunt. :|

No, not a Treasure Hunt. So, should be easier to find (I hope).
