Pictures of Hot Toys 1/6 scale Tim Burton 1989 Batman Batmobile, NOT the 2005 Tumbler

Here are some pictures that have surfaced of the upcoming Hot Toys 1/6 scale Tim Burton 1989 Batman and 1992 Batman Returns Batmobile, including a magazine scan of the features that will be found on this particular version of the Batmobile. Tim Burton's live-action films Batman and Batman Returns presented a different version of the Batmobile, which reflected that film's Art Deco version of Gotham City, both of which were designed by Anton Furst. It was long, low and sleek, and was built on a Chevy Impala chassis.

The Hot Toys 1989 Batman Batmobile will measure approximately 39" in Length X 16" wide x 9" high and is designed in perfect scale with the 1989 Batman 12-inch figure. It features 2 headlights, 4 taillights and Interior light-up function.

It also has a Functional sliding door for Batman to get in and out of the vehicle, has two seats, a detailed Cockpit instrument panel, two machine guns (Browning machine guns were hidden behind flaps in each fender), Batdiscs (in the movie, a side-mounted batdisc ejector could fire precisely 15 Batdiscs in the 1-second pulse), detachable side hook (Its Grappling hook - once hooked on a structure, serves as an anchor to allow the batmobile to make an extremely sharp turn at high speed that its pursuers typically cannot duplicate), detachable side planes (chassis-mounted shin breakers), detachable base (central "foot" capable of lifting the car and rotating it 180°).

As an added bonus, the Batmobile's shields / Cocoon. If Batman must leave the Batmobile for an extended period of time, he can, through a voice command spoken into a wrist device (specifically, the word "shields"), activate the Batmobile's shielding system. This prevents anyone from tampering with the vehicle while it is left unattended. Bulletproof and fireproof steel armor plates envelop the body and cockpit entirely. While this armor is in place, the vehicle cannot be driven.

Inside, the two-seat cockpit featured aircraft-like instrumentation, a passenger's side monitor, self-diagnostics system, CD recorder, and voice-command recognition system.

Sweet! This looks really cool. Next to the 1966 Batmobile, this is my second favorite version of Batman's ride.
