But seriously, the '89 Batmobile was sweet. (Although I kinda dug the flash of the Kilmer version.)

Have a review for tumbler in Ben's cue to edit/check, love the design and the hot toy version...the Hotwheels elite was just a relabeled normal version:(

With the exception of the

With the exception of the rear engine bay access, grey hue & gold chrome. I'm sure the 1989 release is identical in quality... either way, this is my favourite Batmobile, period.

I agree about the regular 1989...just sold mine long ago...not sure if the inside cockpit was just as detailed

Still the one!

I still dig this design, despite the oddball additions in Batman Returnslike the rotating lift and bat-missile form.
I imagine when this toy is placed on a black background, the grey tone would make it look "lit-up" like in all those publicity photos with Keaton, Burton and Furst. But the gold trim is just wrong to me and kills any desire for me to pick this up. :-(

Details of the windshield and side windows

Ecently, I bought this model on Ebay was disappointed parts windshield and side windows. They are made of thin plastic and fast and Packaging waste dumps. You too? Skills is an analog - Hot Wheels Batmobile Batman Return. There, these parts are made of sturdy clear plastic.
