NEW 1966 BATMAN TV BATMOBILE TOY CAR By HOT WHEELS
All the Batman Message Boards are in a buzz about the release of the new line of BATMAN BATMOBILE diescast toy cars that are gonna be made in 2007 by Hot Wheels! Basically, the Corgi Toy Company, who has been making an extremely nice series of Batmobiles the last few years, has lost the agreement to do them & next year they're gonna be made by Mattel. The main car everyone is super-excited about is the '66 Batmobile from the 1966 Batman TV Show, designed by George Barris! Up above is a prototype graphic "teaser" showing the car...I can't wait for this to come out because it should be extremely cool! I've heard they're gonna go all out on this one & the fine-details are gonna be insane! Also, It's gonna be a large-sized car about 1/18th scale!! Mattel is keeping everything super-secret right now so we don't know yet but as soon as the info becomes avaliable you can read it here at the olde BAT-BLOG!
