Hot Wheels 1:50 TV Batboat

hot wheels batboat

From my post on the 1966 Batmobile website from 5/14/08:

I am exploring this a little with some detective work. Eric said originally:
“For Comic-Con 2008, Hot Wheels will have an exclusive Bat-vehicle like they did last year. I’m sworn to secrecy of which one it will be, but I can tell you it is a ’66 Batman related item and it does have wheels & probably 1:50th scale!!”
So –

1. I am guessing if it was a vehicle we’ve already seen he might have worded it a little differently. That leads viagra to the boat, copter or batgirl cycle.

2. And we’ve already seen that HW was quick to do the Batcycle which is NOT a Barris design so they only have to pay licensing to TW for that. Which still leaves the copter, batgirl cycle and boat which are all non-barris owned designs.

3. AND my suspicion that they either directly used or at least piggy-backed on to the Polar Lights patterns for the batcycle then leads me to think the copter and the batgirl bike are out.

Leaving – the Batboat.

    Comic Con 2008? BatBoat?
    I went to Comic Con NYC in April 2008, no HWs Batboat there, unless I missed it or they’re talking about Comic Con 2008 in the west of U.S.A.

    Kevin – I created the picture in photoshop.

    Spartanwolf – It’s the San Diego Con they’re talking about. That’s the BIG con.

  1. […] said, they did such a nice job with the Batcycle and Batboat that I’m personally stoked about it. Polar Lights has also hinted that they are not ruling […]
