3Super overpriced for what you getSep 22, 2008
By RMM2 "R"
The Mattel Hot Wheels 1966 TV Batmobile Super Elite is a super disappointment for the price. The $100-ish "elite" version looks almost identical and is $200 cheaper! A couple of metal pieces and a plastic antenna do not make a $200 difference. The baggy looking parachute packs looks inaccurate and ridiculous. Overall, the car is overpriced and very inaccurate compared to the actual TV car. The two lower end models are much better values for the money...I suggest buying one of them and customizing them to look like the TV car!

5BAT-FAN-TASTIC!!!Mar 05, 2008
By Davidp.
For almost 40 years I've been waiting for an accurate replica of the 1966 Batmobile, and finally it's here! This model has been computer scanned from the actual original vehicle still in the possession of customizer George Barris, so it is without a doubt, the most accurate mass produced, commercially available model of the car available.

This diecast profiles correctly to the shape of the original car ( which has been distorted in most toys and models available over the decades ) and the details, even down to the red pinstriping, look great. Hardcore scrutinizers may find a quibble here and there with minor details ( such as two very small "badges" on the grille of the car ) but some variations are inevitable, as this car has had parts replaced ( such as the "turbine exhaust" ), and has been tinkered with over the years. But when the overall look of the model is so correct, those minor changes hardly matter.

The model has a glossy black paint job, matching the look of the car on the television series. The passenger doors open, and it has a working steering linkage. Cockpit detailing includes the handle used to make the car perform a 180 degree "Bat-Turn", a fire extinguisher between the seats, the rolltop detailing on the dash, and the somewhat antique looking "Batphone" on the center console.

There will be limited edition "elite" and "super elite" versions available, which will have more goodies, such as an opening hood and trunk, and photo-etched parts, plus details of questionable authenticity under those opening parts ( such as a conjectural "turbine Engine" which was never seen on the series ) but if you're not made of money - like me - you will probably find this version just right for the price.

5From the days when Batman was psychedelic, not psychotic.Jun 06, 2008
By Armchair Pundit "Armchair Pundit."
A blast from the past which no Batfan can be without.
The scale 1:18 ensures great detail and accuracy that smaller versions can't match.
Even with all the later Batmobile versions this is the one that has always stayed in my mind.
Recently I visited a car's of the stars museum, but of all the exhibits on show only four interested me,
The Saint's Volvo, Mrs Peels Lotus, Bond's Aston Martin DB5 and.......this version Batmobile.
A fantastically designed vehicle from a fantastically humourous show.
Mr Barris's creation will, quite rightly, go down in TV history.
(Now hopefully they will release the TV show this car featured in.)

4Mattel hot wheels 1:18 1966 tv series batmobileApr 25, 2008
By David Gee "gmony"
Yea I had one ordered as a presale at $29.95 and It never shipped, then they notified me that it would be delayed so I kept it on order for another month. Finally they notified me that they could not feel the order at this time. Yea because sellers on amazon are really sticking you for the price + $60.00. Look around there are plenty of ligit hobby stores selling the reg. version of the 1:18 batmobile for suggested List price $29.95 they will also be hitting the mass retail stores later this summer these won't sell out till mattel saturates the market with time. They are not limited production items.

3You Get What You Pay ForSep 02, 2009
By Brendan Bartholomew
As somebody who had the legendary, original Corgi Batmobile during my childhood, I was very excited to learn that Mattel was making this even more faithful replica of the car from the old TV series. My local hobby shop wants $40 for this thing, so when I realized the price had dropped to $25 on Amazon, ordering it was a no-brainer.

Now that I've got it, I have to say it's the die-cast miniature equivalent of a "twenty footer" car: From a distance, it's gorgeous, but closer inspection reveals a few imperfections. In the case of mine, there is paint over-spray on the rear bubble canopy windows, and, despite the fact that it's brand new and has presumably never been out of its box, the chrome on the three exhaust stack/missile launchers is already wearing off, as though it's been subjected to wear-and-tear. Also, the driver's side door looks like it's not fitting or hung properly. Perhaps when or if I open the box, I may be able to more fully close the door or position it better.

Heck, given the lack of perfection here, I might as well go ahead and open it up. I'll leave a comment on this review and let you know what I find out if and when I do that.

So the bottom line is that this is a very nice toy, and will certainly look just fine displayed on your desk or shelf, but if you're a real stickler for modeling perfection, you might want to think about ordering the Elite or Super Elite edition. Those have also come down in price, and one would assume the fit and finish, workmanship, and attention to detail would be much better.
