    Looking awesome
    Looks perfectly scaled.

    Very tempted depending on the price would make an amazing display.

    Did you guys not see the in hand pics/videos of it at Comic Con? It's been definitely coming for ages now :p

    I'd love to get one but simply have no idea where I'd display it (it's hardly going to fit in a detolf is it :laugh: )

    Am I right in thinking they only made 500 Tumblers? This is going to be tough to get me thinks :(

    500 seems unlikely to me, I don't think we'll have any problem getting one of these when they're finally up for pre-order

    Anyone remember how much the Tumbler originally was?

    Do you think it would give a reasonable indication of the price 1989 mobile will be or do you think it will undoubtably cost a good bit more?

    Seeing as some figures are above the £300 mark now I can't imaging that this will be any cheaper than £500

    Hmm, £500 would the absolute maximum for me.

    I've already told the missus it'll probably be around the £350 mark, lol. :suicide:

    I know you shouldn't judge prototypes too harshly but this looks a bit.............cheap, no?:confused:

    Especially back here, just looks like a plastic shell with a few plastic bits tacked on.
    I mean, I know that's litterally what they are but this thing's going to be a lot of money.

    [​IMG]

    It'll obviously depend on how the finished product is but it doesn't look like there's a whole lot to this if it is around the £400 mark. Was the car not darker and glossier too?

    Right now I'm right on the fence with whether to get his one or Tumbler re-release. :rolleyes:

    I agree mate....the tumbler cost me £300 and that had more too it in terms of design so going off that reasoning, i would hope that this is round the same price (I hope)

    True but the look at the moment is definately too plasticy.

    I'm sure it'll be improved greatly. I just hope the price isn't astronomical.

    I have the original Tumbler and I will be getting this as I am sure the production model will be better than the prototype

    This is the version I have.



    I was actually watching the Blu-Ray of Batman the other day, afterwards I watched the extras and one of my favourite bits is a 10 minute documentary with the builders of the Batmobile. If you have the Blu-Ray, stick it in and watch that bit.
    An interesting point is originally Ford wanted to make the new Batmobile, but wanted over a year to do it, fortunately WB needed it faster so a group of Brits put the now famous version together in 12 weeks.

    I was in Dubai last christmas (yeah the christmas when all the aiports closed due to snowfall:facepalm: but got there in the end).

    Visited the Dubai mall while there and what happened to be on show was... the 1989 Batmobile!

    These are the pictures I took with a new cam I just bought so I apologise that the first two came out too dark, but I got third on the right settings, had I known about the Hot Toys one I would have taken a lot more to compare.

    someone has a vid of it on youtube, I was told it was sold to a Saudi prince for his classic car collection.

    There used to be another Batmobile much closer to home which was hidden away in a town called Keswick in the Lake District.

    It was in the Cars from the Stars Museum and was part of a large private collection of Movie and TV cars.

    I took a load of pictures last time I was there which can be seen here:

    Cars from the Starts Museum

    Sadly the attraction has closed now and it looks like they are all off to a massive movie museum in Florida now which is sad but hey ho.

    OMG! Amazing.
    Nolan can keep his Tumbler, I must have this.

    You can put the Shields on to keep the dust off. :D
