THE DARK KNIGHT Batmobile Tumbler Sixth Scale Replica (Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece)

This is Hot Toys amazing movie masterpiece release of the Batmobile Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s 2008 blockbuster The Dark Knight.

What I love about this, aside from the obvious quality and detail, is that these are really, really big at 29 inches long.

You can also fit up to two 1:6 scale figures inside the Tumbler. That’s right, your Hot Toys Dark Knight 1/6 Batman or your Hot Toys Dark Knight DX Series 1/6 Sonar Batman or your Hot Toys Deluxe Dark Knight 1:6 Scale Batman will all fit in, though one of those two examples will have to wait their turn.

Full Dark Knight Batmobile Tumbler Sixth Scale replica features:

  • Authentically detailed Sixth Scale model 
  • Identically to scale with Hot Toys’ Sixth Scale Batman Figure
  • Detailed Cockpit
  • Roof panel slides open to allow access for Sixth Scale Batman
  • Movable braking flaps
  • Headlights feature light-up function (Requires Three (3) AAA Batteries – Not Included)

These are a limited edition item but at the time of writing this post you can still get them brand new from either of the following links: 

Direct from Hot Toys on Amazon / Via Sideshow Collectibles / Via Ebay

Now that the original Batmobile is for sale, I thought it might be interesting to look into what prop replicas are floating around based on the icon 1966 Batmobile that most of us will actually be able to afford.

Batman TV Series 1966 Batmobile with Collector Magazine ($19.99)

Coming in March 2013 from Eaglemoss Publications is a new release 1:43 scale die-cast Batmobile that includes a 12-page Batmobile collectors magazine. The magazine looks at the history of the Batmobile and of Batman himself. This is a perfectly reproduced scale model that also features a unique 3-D lenticular backdrop that creates a detailed scene of the Dark Knight and his vehicle. Featuring additional metal castings for extra detail, including gadgets.

If you’ve ever wanted to own the Batmobile, now’s your chance.

The original Batmobile from the 1966-1968 live action Batman TV series will be auctioned on January 19, 2013 at the Barrett-Jackson auction house in Scottsdale, Ariz.

This is one of the most iconic of all Batmobiles that actually began life as a Ford concept car called the Lincoln Futura (which had been built in 1955). It was transformed from a Futura into the crime fighters vehicle by George Barris – the car’s owner.

Yes, this is the actual vehicle as used in the TV show that starred Adam West as Batman.

How much can you expect to pay? I have no idea. The auction house has refused to say what they expect to get for it. But you can expect it won’t go cheap.
