You can buy this and get it sent from the USA for less than half of this price. This price is disgusting for what amounts to a plastic car and not a brilliant quality one either.

A nice piece with a little perspective applied 11 Nov 2013
By Collector 4 Life - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
When it comes to the Barris Batmobile, there is a rich history of this car being available in the 60's and 70's as a die-cast toy from Corgi and some small plastic variations from the AHI company, as well as a modest variation designed for the eight inch action figures at Mego. So the Barris Batmobile certainly had it's heyday back when the Batman show was breaking big and kids were wanting a piece of the action. Unfortunately with the dawn of the 80's, licensing for this car pretty much ended. This vehicle went into moratorium for decades. I'm not entirely sure for what reason. Perhaps demand was low for a period of time and George Barris, who certainly had his name attached to other famous creations, didn't want the Batmobile languishing if the market wasn't there. At any rate it took a very long time to pull this car out of retirement and Hot Wheels got the wheels rolling again several years ago with the release of a die-cast miniature. It was an immediate hit and the revival was back on.

During this time the television show was (and continues to be) embroiled in royalty and copyright issues. So it remains a show unavailable on DVD except for the 1966 movie which apparently had separate rights from the TV show. However in 2012 all sides involved were able to reach an agreement on the merchandise side of the equation. So in 2013 came the first of what is likely to be a slew of merchandise hitting shelves at stores and online vendors. Mattel took the most risk by jumping in early to test the market and see if, after 40 years, there were enough fans interested to buy an action figure line. So far the early response has been positive enough that the company will be releasing more than one series from the show. This car under review is the most sought after piece from that line since it is only commercially available at Toys R Us. And even then it's more frequently found on their website than at stores. So Mattel is being deliberately cautious not to flood the market with Batmobiles it can't sell. They are specifically targeting the collector market and keeping stock inventories low enough that availability is sporadic at best. So with a bit of stocking manipulation playing a hand in demand here, the question becomes, "Is this worth the price?"

Like anything, personal value will always play a role in what one person will pay over another. Without question, Mattel is testing that demand by marking up the retail price at $59.99. And as you can see by the second hand market, they're really having a field day on the sticker shock. So what do you get for this price? Well, I'll give you the best comparison I can from a materials and production assessment. Look at any movie Batmobile made in the past by let's say Kenner. Black molded plastic (light weight to the touch); Plastic wheels connected by your traditional metal wire; and a few rubber pieces at high risk areas for damage to keep the car intact and looking complete. No light effects. No opening doors. No bells or whistles. It IS the car and the detail is there in all it's molded, plastic glory. The only paint is the red stripes and the yellow applied to the headlamps. The black of the car is NOT paint. That is molded black plastic as stated earlier. It has simulated seat belts that are fed through an interior slot and can be accessed from under the car to pull tight (although it may require some tweezers to make that happen). But there you go. That is the car. That is the product your paying for. Does it look cheap? No. It looks very nice. For what they didn't do on the paint apps, they did try and makeup in sculpting the parts. So it's an accurate representation of the car.

But anyone expecting a high-end die-cast experience like Hot Wheels has with it's bigger versions where doors open, wheels turn, and the body is coated in a beautiful high gloss paint job, can just forget it. That doesn't exist here. So while the manufacturing is suspect, the final look is nice. And for it's scale, and the fact you can put figures in it, makes it a very unique piece. Is it displayable? Yes. Is it as effective as a die-cast painted version? No. It's too toy-etic for that comparison. Especially if you put figures in it. But as a car by itself, it's nice to see everything on this scale. Is the retail price a bit of a jab at the collector? Absolutely. But will I one day be able to get it for less? Don't bank on it. Limited quantities will make this an instant collectable. And if you think the aftermarket prices are nuts right now, just wait until production ends on these. So I guess the price is relative to your expectations. Is it a good value today or will it look even better one year from now when prices are through the roof? Bank on the latter being true. Translation: If you like it, get it. And be patient and keep your vigil on the TRU website. When it says it's available to ship, BUY IT. Ultimately I felt no buyer remorse. If for any reason I change my mind, I'll be able to recoup my costs, and then some, in a very short period of time.

Superb Batmobile! 30 Aug 2013
By Bill English - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This is it. This is the classic Batmobile that you've been waiting for. It fits the 6" classic Batman & Robin figures sold in a 2-pack. It rolls. It has blocks that it comes with to keep it from rolling off your shelf. The detail is incredible! The sculpt, paint, and decals are perfect. And it is HUGE! What a great vehicle. It started out as a SDCC exclusive and now Toys R Us has them. I suspect the Amazon price to come down to MSRP ($59.99) as they become more available. The sellers selling at the time of writing this review are sellers that got it at SDCC and are marking up to match eBay prices. Target has it in their system at $49.99, but it is unavailable.

As a toy for kids to play with, $50 to $60 is way too much for this vehicle. There are no lights, no sounds, no action gimmicks. That isn't the purpose here. This is a toy for the adult collector. And for that purpose, it is spot on. It had the detailing and the features that matter. The wheels are plastic, not rubber, so they won't degrade over time. This is an excellent centerpiece to any Batman, Batmobile, or Classic Batman collection. I highly recommend it!

Awful Cheap Plastic 10 Oct 2013
By Mark Maharaj - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
First i have two of these lugs of plastic, why because I fell for Mattel and their adult collector tricks. This car is plastic,a hollow soulless piece of plastic.

For sixty plus bucks "adult" collectible, you get garbage. Check everyone else's reviews on YouTube, same exact things I will say.

This is crap, only worth 20 dollars. How can Mattel charge $60? Because they can! No die cast metal; adult collectible means high quality, but this is cheap plastic car, with no metal, no lights, no sounds; where's my theme music.

Skip this and save 60 bucks, wait for a better quality version. Even if you waited Mattel will charge 200 dollars for their next version(ie Semi Diecast Ghostbusters car than no one preordered so they canceled), why you may ask, because they can.

When I read other Amazon reviews,I ask myself "what are these other guys reviewing?" They seem to be reviewing their nostalgia rather than the product. Look, it's as bad as claim, Mattel has taken advantage of the fans, they're probably getting a kick out of collectors and fans gobbling their garbage up. Reading peoples "reviews" on Amazon, I would chuckle all the way to the bank driving my BMW too..

I wanted this all my life but this was a real disappointment. I wish I could say go and get this, but it's so poorly handled. Sadly it comes down to cost vs worth. Is $60 worth it, and the answer is a resounding, heck no! As a fan of Adam West and Burt Ward and the '66 Batman series, I am saddened that this is what Mattel thinks of its fans; they can OVERCHARGE what they want for junk and because we have no one else to buy it from, eventually we'll break down and get it, because nostalgia is their only selling point.

cheap plastic, or priceless memories rekindled? 4 Jun 2014
By E. Iverson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I am a recovering die cast collector, and am not ashamed to say it. I have hoarded cars in their original packaging, not daring to go near the edges of the box for fear of possible corner tears. Mint condition with no access to sunlight was my motto. And for what? Some "guy" telling me he'll give me an extra few dollars because there was no dust on the top of the package? Where was the joy of the car itself? i never actually saw the extreme details or the fine artwork, because they remained entombed in their hardboard sarcophagi. I decided it was time to stop worrying about the mint values and reconnect with the happiness of "owning" a specific car or vehicle just because it appeals to me!
I remember the simpler days of my childhood, when I begged and pleaded with my parents to find for me anything Batman related. They had found for me the Corgi die cast Batmobile that I happily tore out of its (then) insignificant box and roared around my yard not caring if Robin got lost, or if the bat missiles never got found after shooting them out of the missile launcher on the trunk. The only misgiving I had was that it was so small! I wanted a car to push over the dirt and grass hills and park in my Mego batcave! There were other larger Batmobiles, but they lacked any detail; like the original Star Wars figures. Now, Mattel has answered this man/boy's wish with a BIG Batmobile! With 100% more detail than the vehicles of the past. This Batmobile has such a large and impressive presence, and its packaging has such faithful representations of the TV show, the box becomes its own Batcave! No, it doesn't have real fastening seat belts, nor an operational batphone, and the body is made of plastic. It is, to me, a delightful combination of the cars of my past, made of plastic, with added detail that I only dreamed about, just as I dreamed I would one day own a replica Star Trek communicator ( remember the 1978 walkie-talkies?)
This is a visceral vehicle that should transport us back to those blissful summer days that would have been boring and unbearable, if it weren't for our beloved toys! I dare you to take it out of the box and run in a circle around the floor-- go on, do it!

A collector item or an overpriced kids' toy? 17 Aug 2014
By Takeshi Tetsuryu - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Although 50 dollars is lower than the original retail price, I feel this is still far more expensive than it should be.

Granted, the car IS massive, at 18 inches long - but it's still a big hunk of mostly plastic, and this kind of soft rubbery material all the accessories are made of - but not the wheels, oh no. I wasn't expecting die cast construction, but at least having opening doors would've been nice - but apart from the wheels and the steering wheel, this has absolutely no moving parts whatsoever. Unless you could the seatbelts, which can be a real pain in the backside to get into place once you insert the figures into the seats. I used hobby pliers to pull the seatbelts' ends at the bottom of the vehicle. At least Batman can actually grab the steering wheel.

This batmobile doesn't really "feel" like a collector item, more like an expensive childrens' toy. The construction is similar to one - the only thing that raises it above such is the quality of the paint apps, which are pretty good - but could still be better.
