Each has Card Art unique to Car..

I believe all are rereleases of previous Bat releases-- numbered 1-8..

Only saw 4 at the WalMart I was at-- (and there was about 40 ofeach car-- on regular Hot Wheels Pegs) 1.00 a piece..

there are 2 comic ones - batman Comic Art on Card (only saw one of them)
Batman First Movie Batmobile- Batman Movie Logo on Card
The Batman Batmobile -- Standard The Batman Promo Art
Batman Arkham City Batmobile-- - Video Game Box Art
others
Batman Brave and the Bold Batmobile
Batman Begins- Helicopter
and I forget the 8th one..

Thanks for the notice. What the heck is that "Batcopter?"

No clue. I don't understand why they didn't use the tumbler instead. Same the the Keaton Batman batmobile. They used that exaggerated front end batmobile instead of the normal one.

Those are reissues of older models.

The sad part is it looks like the reused the Hardnoze Batmobile instead of the normal ’89 one for Batman '89.

There was no Batcopter in Batman Begins, but the one they used is similar to the one used in the Batman Begins and Dark Knight action figures.

THIS! If I know my Mattel, that would mean that the molds for both the Tumbler and the Burton/Keaton Batmobiles were being used elsewhere. There is no other reason or plausible excuse as to why we don't have them in this line. Their replacements are flat out goofy by comparison. Still, I've been waiting for a sub-series like this since they started putting Batmobiles into the Hot Wheels line, so an overall thumbs-up from me.

Especially- because the Tumbler is in that recent 5 pack (but the "Batcopter" is in that one as well- so I dont really think there was an excuse..


So Far I have found 7 of 8-- its really odd how some stores are getting tons of one type and not another-- I have yet to find the "Crooze" Comic Batmobile anywhere. 7 Walmarts in..

I have seen them all between three (or four) Walmarts. I have the originals, but I love the '66 Batmobile and I like the Arkham card art, so I bought both of those.

I am more interested in the new 1:50 scale vehicles!

I saw some Bat vehicles at Target today which they had for 7.99 a piece, which was way too much for me. Are those different than these?

8 bucks for a little car is terrible when others go for 1 buck.

Those are the bigger, 1:50 scale vehicles, as compared to the regularly scaled 1:64 Hot Wheels. I prefer the bigger ones.

Discovered these yesterday at Wal-Mart.
4 decimated pegs with only 3 of 8 different vehicles to choose from.

I picked up a Brave and the Bold-mobile.
I already had the previous release, but I like the packaging so this one's gonna stay MOC.

Already have The Batman-mobile for the shelf and MOC, but I just about grabbed this one again because it's a cool design and I like the flat black paint alot!

Came real close to grabbing the Arkham one but controlled myself. (It was the last one!)

Cool, thanks for clearing it up!

So 1:64 costs 1 buck and 1:50 costs 8 bucks? That's some inflation.
