Kenner did a two-seater Michael Keaton/Tim Burton Batmobile, as well. And Mego did two-seater Batmobiles for both their 3 and 3/4" plastic action figures and their 8" doll figures.

I think the Kenner 89 Batmobile was a one seater. The two seater was made by Toy-Biz.

The Kenner vehicles for the Burton movies were part of The Dark Knight Collection. I always regret not picking up the Batwing from that line, it goes for hundreds now on eBay.

I've been thinking about this - There are usually more Batman varients than other figures in a toy line. In series one we get regular Batman, wallclimber Batman (which I assume is the same as the regular Batman), and Surf's Up Batman. How many more Batman varients could there be? All I've been able to come up with is:

Radioactive Cowl Batman
Bat-tusee Batman (with V shaped fingers)
Movie Batman (with giant bomb)

Are there others that I'm forgetting?

I'm seriously considering cancelling my per order for castle greyskull so as to get this line. I can see me displaying these where as the castle would be hard to find room for and after seeing the mock up from toy fair, it just seems too small and not worth the cash.

But this line is more of a must have for me.

While not technically a varient, they might do a Bruce Wayne version. Bruce (and Dick) had just about the same amount of screen time as the Dynamic Duo in a typical episode.

Alfred put on the Batsuit once and drove the Batmobile around with Robin.

Yeah, you're right about the Batmobile, I just did a search on it, and it's the Toy Biz one I was thinking of, not Kenner.

Not to throw the thread off topic again...

But the Hasbro TNBA "Knight Striker" Batmobile was a two seater?
Any reviews or good pictures of it so I can see how two-seater-ish it is?
Wish I had known this back in the day!!

And to put us back on topic...

MAN!!! I really want that batmobile!!
And I will probably buy multiples of that bat-climb two-pack.(Display, play, and one for the dad as a gag xmas present.)

You're right. It's "two-seaterish" in the sense that Batman & Robin don't sit side-by-side, but back-to-back.

As for pictures... believe it or not, ebay helps.

Thank you red Ricky.
I see how it TECHNICALLY is a 2seater, but not in the way we all want it to be.
Its 2seater like the batwing was. Sad. (Yet, how the batwing is setup makes more sense then how this batmobile is.)

I think that set will look great mounted on my wall, instead of standing on my desk ...
