Hello,

I had a batmobile question a couple weeks ago and went looking for an answer on line and found this forum. I couldn't register then but I see I can now. While looking through the forum then I also found a second question so here they are:

(1) I just bought these:

Batmobile

Looking at the back of the boxes they have the description backwards. They have the description of the Batman Forever batmobile on the box of the Batman and Robin batmobile and vice versa. Is that common? If it makes a difference the set I bought is the Hobby version that's black and blue and limited to 4000.

(2) While looking over the site here seeing if this question had already been answered I found this:

Batmobile

Very very cool. I've never seen these before. Could someone PLEASE tell me where to get these?

Thanks,
Carl

Welcome!

Yes, the description is written by a monkey sitting in front of a typewriter punching in random keys. It was actually discussed long time ago. Also the battle damaged 1:18 batmobile packaging has the Forever batmobile on the box cover.

As for those small batmobiles, they're called ChoroQ Batmobile.
There's also a tumbler version of that

If you search for 'ChoroQ Batmobile' on the web, you will find a lot of sites selling those.
One site i know selling is here:

http://www.action-hq.com/cgi-bin/action-hq/oth002321.html


You can also get'em from amazon.co.jp.

Thanks for the info.

I didn't know that about the battle damaged 1:18 batmobile packaging. How can they make a mistake that big without it getting caught before it gets to us?

Do you have a link to the other thread where this was discussed?

Thanks,
Carl

I've been digging around the site some more and have a few more questions.

I found this picture:

Batmobile

What is this? A hotwheels prototype?

Also I found this picture:

Batmobile

I'm aware of the 2003 Dream Halloween Batmobile but I've NEVER seen the lager scale one before. Where does one get one of those? Were they ever publically available? Must know more...

Thanks,
Carl

While I'm asking questions might as well ask about this one too:

Batmobile

Is this lighted model a custom job or something that was comercially available? It looks very nice...

Thanks,
Carl

It's all Dave's work.
He's the one who made the 1:18 and the 1:64 Hot Wheels Batmobiles.

He posts now as Dave but he used to post as autoprops713.

So did Dave just make the 1:18 Halloween Batmobiles for himself or did Hotwheels ever sell them? Looks like he made atleast 3 of them.

Same for the lighted model. Did he take the 1:18 Hotwheels Batmobile and light it and make the custom base or was that ever offered as a Hotwheels set?

Thanks,
Carl
