It's funny how everyone was

It's funny how everyone was ragging on this car before BB came out,but it's actually really cool.

Good review,but you messed something up,and the italics never went back to regular letters once the quote was over.

Hey kidnicky, I think that

Hey kidnicky, I think that Phat Boy italicized it in those paragraphs because the info provided is from the sites he linked to above. Further down, If you look at when he talks about the toy it is regular type. Great review!

Tim Burton for me thanks

For me, the minute Batman became another "lets make this film realistic" much like the new 007 movies, I kinda lost interest. Tim Burton's Batman films were for me just right. Dark & gritty with fantastic villans, Max Shreck from Batman returns is one of my all time favourite bad guys. Which brings me to the bat mobile, I'm sorry but this new version sucks because they have tried to envision something that the "real" Batman would drive. The result is a tank, not a car, in my opinion nothing beats Tim Burton's version because it was still a car & it had classic muscle car dimensions- long hood/short rear deck. It looked just right & served the purpose without trying to appear to actually work in real life, lets face it the "real" Batman would not be driving around in a custom look-at-me vehicle in the first place.

How's it a "custom look at

How's it a "custom look at me vehicle"? IIRC he hardly modified it from the original army specs,aside from painting it black,which actually made it LESS conspicuious.

Dan-
On my screen,once he starts the quote,from that point on,it's in italics,even the part where he's using his own words. Even our comments are in italics. Maybe it's just something on my end,but I don't see what it could be.

All I'm saying is...

If that thing pulled up next you, wouldn't you notice it? It's custom in the sense that he's driving it around town, not on a battlefield, where it would still probably turn heads. The point I was trying to make was that I still prefer a vehicle that looks like a street car, since the whole batmobile idea is ludicrous anyway, there is no need to try and make a vehicle that might actually really work. It's still to far fetched no matter what the design. This car looks like pieces of shattered glass glued together, with tractor tyres thrown in somewhere, it's a mess. It does not compare to the corvette-esque design of the first films car design.

OMG, do we HAVE to pull up

OMG, do we HAVE to pull up the whole "Batmobile would never work in a crowded city" argument here...?

The Batman needs an epic ride. This is the answer. A motorcycle is NOT kick-ass enough, I'm sorry. End of story.

Yeah- just like he painted those armor separation joints right out of his suit in the first movie... ;)

I don't know if this is

I don't know if this is really the place for this,but at my local Kmart they happened to have a table ut with some Hot Wheels cars on it,and it turns out there's a Hot Wheels of the 60's Batmobile!!! So I reccomend taking a look at the Hot Wheels cars next time you're at the store. It may not be the most detailed "collectible" out there,but for $1.00,it's hard to complain.
