Man, places are empty out here in central Texas. Pegs haven’t changed in months. ?

That should hopefully change in a month or two with the Christmas season. I find that Walmart is slower to restock as they tend to get a mass of cars in one shipment, while Target puts out a case or two at a time, so they seem to get the newer cases sooner.

This is exactly why I stopped "the hunt." If I want something, Amazon and EBat are right there. Sometimes in Tucson, we dont get new waves, or in Hot Wheels lingo, new case letters. I remember one year an "A" case came out and we never saw another new case until like MM.

Picked up an Eaglemoss 40’s Batmobile, a 1950 Batmobile, and the Hot Wheels 3 pack with the chrome 66 Batmobile. The latter is 1/50 scale.

Picked up one of these at Target. There are 5 or 6 variations. It seems to run on a track and each car has a unique ID.

So, the ‘66 Batmobile ID car does exist. Have not been able to find one anywhere......online or in-store.

103 of the ID cars currently on eBay.
I've never heard of them-- seems like it's a regular Hot Wheels Car that has the technology in it to track it's results on a racetrack. I don't think I need another Hotwheels Batmobile, but I'm glad its out there for those of you looking for one.

Is the ID car motorized? Like a slot car?

Apparently not. This is from Mattel's Hot Wheels website. I had to see myself what these were:

"Hot Wheels™ id blends traditional Hot Wheels® play with a digitally connected racing system that revs competition and experimentation. The more kids play with physical vehicles on the Smart Track®, the more they can level up in the app, tackle new challenges, and set amazing records!"

Yup, I was going to jump on it when I thought it was some kind of remote control thing, but just a regular car that links to an app doesn't do much for me. I'm sure if I had little kids they'd want this.

Hello all. I read through the rules and I think it is ok to post this. I’m getting out of Batman collecting and I found my box with all my parts to build my dream 1:18 1966 Batmobile. It can now be yours if you are interested. You can contact me at futura55@msn.com

Thanks. Andy
