“Does it come in black?”

In the movie “Batman Begins” (2005), after Bruce Wayne first test drives the desert-camouflage-colored Tumbler with Lucius Fox, Lucius asks Bruce, “So what do you think?” Bruce replies, “Does it come in black?”

I have so many mainline Hot Wheels Batmobiles that they no longer fit in the box I have for them. I haven’t blogged about many of them, so I’ve selected a few that aren’t black. All of them are from 2019.

Justice League Batmobile

(This blog post is actually about two Batmobiles, not just the Justice League Batmobile, but I’ve run out of ideas for titles of blog posts about Batmobiles.)

The Justice League Batmobile is new for 2018. The first release was in flat black and this dark metallic blue version is the second release. Quite noticeable is the “massive rail gun.”

The TV Series Batmobile might be the most popular version of the Batmobile. The Hot Wheels Wiki lists 23 versions of it starting from the prototype released in 2007.

Batmobile (1989)

It’s been more than two months since I last made a blog post because I’ve been very busy at work. I’ve bought quite a few scale models since then but I’ll post about these one at a time.

The name for the scale model below is “Batmobile” according to the card, but Hot Wheels Wiki calls it “Batmobile (1989).” (It was first seen in the 1989 movie.) The scale model below is from 2018.

A new mall, Robinsons Place Naga, recently opened and I was able to buy a few scale models from a Toys “R” Us store there. This Batmobile (Batman v Superman) is in metalflake gray. (The one I got earlier is in black.) This The Bat is in dark blue. (This is apparently the second one I have. For some reason, I had not blogged about the first one.)

Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile (2016)

bakbatm I recently bought the second mainline Hot Wheels version of the Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile. (I blogged about the first mainline version here.) The 2015 version is in matte black; the 2016 version is in metallic dark gray.

I found it in the hidden compartment at the bottom of a display stand, where most Batmobiles here can be found. Perhaps I should call this hidden compartment the Bat Cave.
