Man, come on! I haven’t even found the Mystery Machine Batmobile yet. Oh well, I have a business trip to Houston next week. No shortage of stores there that have Hot Wheels. I feel pretty certain I’ll find a few there. Plus there’s the grey 2019 design to find also.
No more will they jeer and scoff, I'll cut their circulation off.

Man, that sucks. Keep looking ‘cause they’re out there. I saw several Mystery Machines yesterday at Walmart. The grey ‘66 has pretty much disappeared from the pegs in my area, but the ‘66 is the most popular Batmobile and always goes fast.

Another tip is checking flea markets. The large market in my area has 3 stores dedicated to nothing but Hot Wheels and other die-casts. Lots of newer Batmobiles ranging from $3-$5 each, which seems reasonable if you can’t find one in the stores. Good luck Chums.

Found this on the pegs at Walmart yesterday. Not sure I know what Color Shifters are, but apparently, if you put it in water it changes color or markings appear. On this one I believe red flames appear on the hood. I don’t know if I will put it in water or not, but I wanted it as the 1989 Batmobile is my second favorite Bat ride.
