Our good friend “Batmobile Billy” sent us a photo of this brand-new toy he saw at a retail store the other night. He’s always on the hunt for cool Batman Batmobile Toys & spotted this new variation of the DC SUPER FRIENDS BATMOBILE CAR with Batman Figure made by Fisher Price, as a part of their “Imaginext” series. This one sort of looks a little bit like the car seen in the 1989 Batman movie, kinda-sorta! It also comes with 3 industrial barrels of “Joker Chemical Waste” ( I love the Joker Logo on the top of them, funny! ). The photo showing the toy on the store shelf is Billy’s picture he snapped of the actual product & the other 2 are from the FP website. I like this car a lot & I’m gonna have to get one later, it’s pretty cool! Thanks Billy for sending the pic. If any other Bat-Blog Readers ( that includes YOU! ) spot any brand-new Batman Toys or Merchandise out there then please let us know so we can share the info, thanks!

Recently we published a photo sent in by a Bat-Blog Fan named Bob who just recently bought a Vintage 1958 Corvette that was customized, in the 1960’s, to look like Batman’s Batmobile car. That post was pretty popular & I asked Bob to send some more pics. He was very gracious & here they are! In these you get a great view of the front & back of the car. Also, the “comic book graphic” at the top…I think that is Bob’s idea on what this car might look like after it’s restored. Let’s hope so because that’s pretty sweet. Actually, any kind of restoration would improve it right now. It’s a little banged up from so many years of neglect. But we all know that Bob is going to give it some tender loving care. I wanna thank Bob for sending us some more photos & keeping us updated. It’s actually kinda thrilling to get to see this really great custom automobile come to life. If you missed the 1st post, or would like to see the 1st photo again, then here’s a link to check it out, just CLICK HERE!
The Batmobile has been spotted in Pennsylvania…at a TOYS R US in Cheltenham, PA to be exact! A friend to the Bat-Blog, named Michael, just recently saw this BATMAN FOREVER MOVIE Vending Machine Toy Ride-On Batmobile & had to send some pics to us. I like how it looks sort of “cartoony” ( I just invented that word ). Plus, it’s always fun to see one of these things. Now I know a lot of people totally hate this film but I actually kinda like that it is so bad. Now obviously I would have prefered for the film to be good, or even great, but since it’s not we might as well accept it. “Don’t cry over spilled milk”, my Grandmother used to say. I wanna thank Michael for taking the pictures for us, I really appreciate that, it’s a very cool car!
Yeee Haawww! Somebody done made himself a Batmobile! Ha Ha, There’s a new website called “People of Walmart”. It’s a funny humor site where readers send in photos of weird ( or crazy ) people they see at Walmart. It’s actually kinda mean but it’s pretty hilarious at the same time. I mean, you can see some really crazy stuff at that store at 2:00 in the morning! Now most of the pictures are people wearing weird clothes or they have mullet hairstyles but, on occasion, they even show what some of these people drive. This site must be pretty popular because in the last few days I have had about 4 friends send me this photo, ha ha! Now of course I appreciate every single one, that’s great! But it makes me wonder …how famous is this P.O.W. website becoming? Oh yeah, the photo is a customized VW Bug with the Batman Bat-Symbol Logo on the hood. Ya’know, I actually think this car is kinda cool. I mean, if your car is a piece of junk, then why not do this?! Yeee Haawww!
Here at the Bat-Blog, awhile back, we did a story about a guy in Ohio who bought a Military Drone Helicopter Engine & used it to make a Batmobile Replica Car that was unlike any other. Well, I guess he has decided to sell it, it’s on eBay right now. OK, before you get ready to go hit eBay & bid let’s just say that it’s pretty expensive. I mean, the “BUY IT NOW” price is $620,000.00, ha! Yes, over half a million bucks! But the car is pretty impressive & would totally turn you into a complete Chick Magnet! So, go bid now! Here’s a LINK.
Our buddy, known as “Bat-Dave”, just recently got to ride in the Batmobile!! No, seriously, he sent us some pics to prove it ( Be sure to click on them for larger, sharper versions ). Plus, he has a great story about it too. Check this out:
I was having a cold beer last weekend at The Beachcomber Bar & Grill on Seaside Heights boardwalk where MTV films that horrible ‘Jersey Shore’. I commented to this older fellow to my left wearing a ‘weathered’ Batman tee how much I liked his shirt. It turns out that the guy is Jay Weatherby, New Jersey’s coolest Adam West/Batman impersonator!! Not only is Jay a walking encyclopedia of the 1960’s TV series, he even had his own costume tailor-made and… get this…He MADE his very own BATMOBILE!!! A few years back, Jay sawed the entire top off his 1980’s Ford Mustang and has basically customized it as a homage to the 1966 George Barris vehicle!!! Jay does parties and other personal appearances from time to time. It was a real thrill when he took me for a quick spin around Seaside in his trusty ‘Batmobile’! Kids of all ages on the boardwalk were loving it!
Here’s a cool newspaper clipping sent in by our friend BatDave. It appeared last week in The SandPaper, a very popular weekly publication that highlights various South Jersey Beach communities. Basically it’s about a Car Show that went on in NJ. Once again, a personally customized-replica 1966 Batman TV Batmobile steals the show, this time at a local scholarship fundraiser in Manahawkin, NJ!! I think the girl that wrote this article did a fantastic job. Very insightful bat-observations and you can tell she really did her research!! Be sure to click on it for a large “readable” version. ( Thanks BatDave )
Yesterday, here at the BAT-BLOG.COM, we featured a few videos of the unveiling of the Batmobile Car that will be used in the BATMAN LIVE World Arena Tour. The event happened in the UK & you know people there must have went insane. Well, today we decided to share some amazing photos of the BATMOBILE CAR! ( Please click on them for larger versions ) For a Batmobile Prop Car I think it looks pretty cool! I don’t know, what do YOU think about it? Please share your comments on Facebook or Twitter.

Here are a few BATMAN LIVE “World Arena Tour Batmobile” Wallpapers I made last night to brighten your desktops. They feature the amazing photography of David Ellis, one of the Official Photographers for the UK show. They’re very minimal, just the car, but they make really great backgrounds. Please give them a try! Also, don’t be greedy & please share them with all your friends, ha!

OK, this is BATMAN FANDOM to the Extreme! You gotta love it! A cool Bat-Fan named Casey Putsch recently built his very own Batmobile Car! It’s modeled after the 1989 BATMAN Movie version. Now, you’re probably thinking, “Hey, there’s a ton of those out there!”. Well, NOT like this one. He used a a Boeing turbine engine from a decommissioned military helicopter!! Yes, this thing is really turbo!! It’s just like it was intended in the movie, but real, ha! Just check out the videos down below & you’ll see. Plus, be sure to crank-up your speakers because you can hear the modified turbine engine roar! This EXTREME!! ( Thanks Jordan & Mike ).
