jada toys the batman 1:18 scale batmobile

Have you seen THE BATMAN movie starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader? I really enjoyed the film; though the star of the show for me was the new batmobile! This movie's batmobile is a suped up hotrod with more of a focus on it being a Motor City muscle car than a vehicle full of techy gadgets. This has to be my favorite batmobile yet from the comics, tv shows and movies, plus it has a great chase scene in THE BATMAN that gear heads and movie geeks are sure to equally appreciate.

So, I was excited to discover Jada Toys has created a 1:18 scale diecast replica of THE BATMAN batmobile. Officially licensed by DC Comics, this Hollywood Ride showcases movie accurate details of this crime fighting muscle car. Built with a diecast metal body and premium rubber wheels, this hotrod also includes opening doors and a detailed interior that matches the look of the real vehicle used for filming batmobile scenes in the movie. 

The 1:18 scale batmobile, think equivalent size to vintage style G.I. Joe and Star Wars toys from the '80s, also comes with a 3.75" diecast Batman who comes dressed in a cape and cowl and sports a bat insignia on his chest. A great looking figure that enhances displaying THE BATMAN Jada Toys 1:18 scale batmobile by having Batman stand next to it. Unfortunately, the included action figure doesn't have any articulation so it can't be poised to have it look like Batman is sitting behind the wheel driving the batmobile. One of the very few disappointments of this toy car. Another being that there aren't more details to view inside the front hood when flipping its moveable panels open. All in all though there is very little to be disappointed about when it comes to this diecast batmobile.

The true highlights of this car that more than overcome any of its deficiencies are its spectacular lighting effects. In addition to impressive rear engine lighting effects, it also has working headlights, tail lights and lighting in the front grill, side markers, and embedded within the front hood. The lighting is powered by three replaceable watch style flat batteries and has an on/off switch on the undercarriage to conserve battery life.

The 1:18 scale THE BATMAN Jada Toys batmobile earns a Geek Daddy nod of approval for being fun for either playing with or displaying. It is a nice size for a displayable decoration making this batmobile a great addition in a man cave, home office or game room. The lighting effects provide a super ambience to any recreational space. This is an eye catching movie vehicle replica that people who see it are sure to be geeked about.
