New 1:18 packaging

I just noticed something interesting about the new 1:18 packaging. The image on the box is the Forever car...

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Do these things come with a warranty??

RE: New 1:18 packaging

HotWheels has a lot of problems with packaging. This picture is from the 1/64th Showcase 1/20,000 number 2of3 Forever Batmobile. The text on the back of the package is talking about the B&R car.

And the B&R cars info is a mix of ifo about Forever and Returns.

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Dont you two ever sleep? Tim i still have mine apart also. I love how the canopy slides up that little ramp then on the return snaps back down to fit the body. D

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Tim your not thinking of making each piece 22.67 times bigger and having a a full size car fit together as well as the model does are you ? D

RE: New 1:18 packaging

I was just looking at it and the next thing I remember is the car was like that and I had a screwdriver in my hand!..

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Oops Jax,
Scaled images down too small.

You'll need to upload'em again in bigger size.

 From: Tim | Posted: 2/18/2005 11:17:49 AM |

RE: New 1:18 packaging

I just saw your first post...

Yeah, I like the way that works too. It really snaps into place.

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Here it is again.

RE: New 1:18 packaging

That's funny, I don't remember the Penguin destroying the Batman & Robin car in Batman Forever.

These are all screwed up. Who writes this stuff? "...part-way through the movie" ??? (Geez, I hope it wasn't Dave. )

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Surprise! This is what happens when the ONLY real Batmobile fan that worked at Hot Wheels...leaves. Remember, a lot of the guys working there are old farts and don't know anything about the Batman films. When I was there, I watched over these things like a hawk, even taking stuff home on the weekends. When they put me on the new toyline for PIXAR (just before I left), I saw some of this but like I mentioned earlier...washed my hands.

One other thing. The packaging designer does not work together with the toy designer. You get one uneducated guy in the mix and there you have it (see images above)

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Tim, we need a new hobby or at least a life. Jack

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Just don't tell anyone how old we are...

 From: Tim | Posted: 2/18/2005 12:14:00 PM |

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Hey Dave,

How accurate is the size & layout of the dash and cockpit? (not the decal)

 From: starlight | Posted: 2/18/2005 12:14:53 PM |

RE: New 1:18 packaging

"it's wall climber, jet thruster/grappling hook super natural performance..."

He was obviously an English major.

 From: Webmaster | Posted: 2/18/2005 12:25:04 PM |

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Seem pretty accurate to me

 From: Tim | Posted: 2/18/2005 12:36:55 PM |

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Me too, although I can see a few differences from that photo. Of course the pictures are taken at different angles and I'm not sure what car that is. (It's still pretty damn good.)

RE: New 1:18 packaging

you have seen the car up close, you have done all the dash inspections and measurements... BUT.... if I am right then the speedometer and the rest of the dash conflict. I know the speed of the car is a touchy subject with some people (you know who you are) and we have already had that debate, but if I AM right then can you explain the red MACH light that would indicate that the car's fantasy speed is indeed above MACH 1, and the speed on the actual speedometer relating to the actual car's performance.

I have read that some cars that were built, were only capable of slower speeds. While other cars were much higher, such as the car that did the return to the Batcave sequence in the first movie. Was that Onstar's Hero car.

Finally, what happened to the halloween dream 1:7 scales????????

RE: New 1:18 packaging

Hmmm...1st-most of the gauges were just stuck into the dash and didn't work. 2nd-most of the gauges were from military aircraft from areas around England. 3rd-a lot of those gauges and even the Batwing ejector seat were from an old Harrier. 4th-yes, the Onstar car is the first 1989 Batmobile built and the fastest. The speed was improved for Returns. BTW, chassis was 1974 Chevy Impala (2 feet lengthened, wheels out 4 inches, engine dropped 12 inches...checked my notes).

Still not sure about the question though. Are you asking if this car could do mach 1? I hope not

RE: New 1:18 packaging

$10 says they put the "mach light" on the dash just because it looked cool.

 From: starlight | Posted: 2/19/2005 2:02:24 AM |

RE: New 1:18 packaging

"Batwing ejector seat were from an old Harrier"

Refresh my memory, but did Batman eject the batwing in the movie?

RE: New 1:18 packaging

How easy is it to pull apart the 1:18 model and put'em back?

I'm thinking of putting some lightings inside.

 From: Jax | Posted: 2/19/2005 2:07:58 AM |

RE: New 1:18 packaging

I'm not Tim, but I'm pretty close. All you need is a small crosspoint (phillips) screwdriver. The hardest part is getting the guns back in and even that isn't very hard. Good luck. Jack
