News, a Winner And Some Teases

Pimp My Batmobile 7 Comments

So the official announcement of the 1:50 Batgirl Cycle as the SDCC promo vehicle is now okay to talk about. There may be photos on Friday. Check on the 1966 Batmobile board for more info. Looks like it’s part of a three pack at least at the show, which leads me to believe they might do a mass release of it on a single card. Here’s hoping, anyway.

See, people were moaning amount my hints, but really all you needed was the very first one:

  • It’s a TV bat vehicle that was seen on screen. (The batgirl cycle was only on TV. All the rest of the vehicles were seen in the movie version so while this was trickily worded – you could have made the jump from this hint)
  • There was more than one version shown on screen (that pretty much ruled out the copter and the boat)
  • It had electronic ignition (that ruled out the Batcycle)
  • It had modifications by the Fox props dept (that was all of them)
  • It had bat emblems on it (okay that was just a bad hint)

We have a winner! Of the 167 registered users we had as of 6/1 our random number generator selected mnbatman as the recipient of the 1:50 Batmobile and Batcycle set! If you’re out there, mnbatman – give us a shout.

So let’s see what else…The seated figure samples just got here and they look better than we had hoped for. Production starts rolling and we should be shipping those out very soon. Thanks for all your patience.

And we are almost set to start production of the Parts Upgrade set #1 which will include a modified version of the Elite’s newly resized batphone. So some of you wanting to stick to customizing the standard edition can get the only useful part from the Elite version for your mod job. And it will be better. How? Wait and see.

    I will give you my best understanding of this since no one else has (remember, you get what you pay for….LOL)

    The main place this set of 3 cars is designed to sell at is at the San Diego Comic-con in July. It been years since I’ve been to one, but it is a HUGE deal! The set will be a limited edition (I don’t know how many yet) on a first come first served basis. Last year they offer a few of the 1/64 scale Batmobiles to the Hot Wheels Red Line Club, but sold out VERY quickly.
    single pice some time this year, but probably will be hard to find for a while.

    Haven’t heard anything about any other SDCC batman promos yet. I would email Eric about the 1966 batmobile board problems.
