OK, who else wants one? <3
The new Justice League Batmobile looks like an absolute game changer! Looks like he’s fully prepared for the Parademons! It looks very much inspired by the Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile! Mattel gave us a preview in the form of the most tricked out remote-control car we’ve ever seen.
In the video, Michael Kadile, the product designer at Mattel on WB action figure toy line, demonstrates the dopeness of the Batmobile toy.
The charcoal-gray, roughly 2 ft. long by 6-inch tall RC car features spoilers, giant, knobby wheels and was unveiled this week at the New York Toy Fair. According to Mattel, the toy is a replica of the car Ben Affleck’s Batman will drive in the new film based on DC Comic book heroes.
The drivable car is fitted with cannons and Gatling guns that point in whatever direction you’re steering, the car chassis can lift a few inches for “jump mode” (the movie car jumps, this one does not) and there are functioning lights and engine sounds that grow louder and more intense as you increase throttle.
Inside the cockpit is a six-inch tall Batman, his steely eyes focused straight ahead and his hands gripping the steering wheel, which he really steers as you steer the remote control. The cockpit lights also change as you drive.
Also inside that cockpit is a tiny POV camera. Using the associated app, you can see what the view would be were you actually riding shotgun in the Batmobile. The app also adds augmented reality, which mean you’ll see rockets and tracer fire coming out of the canon and gun.
The car even emits exhaust. The Justice League Batmobile is equipped with a small oil reservoir that it burns through each time you rev the engine.
It will be available this summer for $250 in the US (converting roughly to £200 in the UK and AU$325 in Australia). Even though there will only be a limited run of 35,000 of these available, still this is every Batfan’s wet dream!
