I have been looking for months but haven't found the Hot Wheels (the normal size that are about $1) or the new Matchbox version. Are they still out?

I did find the Matchbox Batmobile. According to ebay, there's also a new Hot Wheels Batmobile based on the Live show.

Thanks!

The Bat Matchbox Sky Busters MBX Undercover series at Target. Sku # W5323, Asst# 68982

The Bat Hot Wheels 2012 New Models 27/50 Sku V5315-09A0N, Asst L2593

Batman Live Batmobile Hot Wheels HW Imagination Sku X1628-09A0A, Asst. L2593

Batmobile Matchbox MBX City Sku W4886-0910, Asst. 30782 (Original Blue with Red Wheels)

Batmobile Matchbox MBX Adventure City Sku Y0960-0910, Asst. 30782 (Gray/Black with Red Wheels)

I found Matchbox The Bat’s at Target, Hot Wheels The Bat on eBay and the Batmobiles at Target and Walmart. I never saw the Hot Wheels The Bat in either 1:64 or 1:50 at retail anywhere.

I hope this helps.

Thanks! I didn't know Matchbox had done 2 Batmobiles. I found the grey one but didn't know about the blue one.

Yeah I found the HW Bat at TRU right before Christmas (there were about 6 of them in one of those center aisle cardboard displays--


Now if only I can find the Flinstonemobile-- and I didnt even know about the other Matchbox Batmobiles..

FlaBat, what about the current release of the Barris Batmobile (HW Imagination sub-set)?... I've seen it on eBay but can't tell if there's anything different about the car from the last release or not -- is it just a card back change?...

This was from my friend when I asked the same question-- I found one- but I never compared..


Three differences that I notice...

- the canopy is clear instead of translucent blue
- red trim added to the hood and trunk areas
- silver version of the gold wheel rims used on one of the previous releases.

I had not seen that one, other than pictures. I already had a few of the original, and Hot Wheels just rereleased a bunch of the old castings on new card backs. I just assumed there was not much difference if any.

I found the small HW and the Matchbox version multiple times prior to Christmas at Target, TRU & WalMart. Haven't seen the one for the Batmobile line though. And I did see the Batman Live Batmobile at Target.

Found the blue Matchbox Batmobile at a local grocery store. I had given up and had figured I had missed it. Now I have both Matchbox Batmobiles and the Bat. Not bad considering I didn't even know Matchbox was making Bat stuff about 6 weeks ago.
