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.

(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.
This Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile is from 2018 and has some red pinstriping.
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.
This Batmobile (Batman v Superman) is colored dark purple according to Hot Wheels Wiki, but to me it looks more like dark metal flake blue.
For Christmas, how about a green and red Batmobile? (I got the image below from a Hot Wheels Collectors e-mail.)
At first sight, this Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile (2017) looks exactly like the 2016 version I blogged about before. But note that the 2016 card is numbered “229/250” whereas this 2017 card is numbered “267/365.”
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.)
I recently bought this 2016 Hot Wheels The Dark Knight Batmobile. This is the second Hot Wheels Tumbler that I have—the first was a camouflage version. (My other camouflage version Tumbler is a Tomica and has front wheels that look more like those of the actual Tumbler.)
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.
For Christmas, my wife and my daughter gave me this Hot Wheels Batmobile (Batman v Superman), a model that I did not have before. This is the first mainline version of this casting. My daughter found it in the hidden compartment at the bottom of a display stand, where most of the good stuff is usually located.
