Hot Wheels 2016 Batman Series

I couldn’t resist the Hot Wheels 2016 Batman Series. When I found a bin full of them at a Walmart, I picked up one of each.

My favorite Batmobile is the 1960s TV series version, which was designed by the recently departed George Barris. I have the Hot Wheels first release from 2007 and another variation from 2009, as well as a Playart version that I’ve had since childhood. I especially like the comic-book inspired illustration on the package of this latest model.

The next Batmobile in the series first came out in 2004 as the Hardnoze Batmobile.

Next, we have the Batman Begins Batmobile, otherwise known as the Tumbler, which made its Hot Wheels debut as a 2005 Comic-Con exclusive.

This is only the fourth variation of the Hot Wheels Bat-Pod (so far), the first being released in 2008.

The Bat has only been around since 2012 and this third variation wears metalflake black paint.

And finally, we round out the series with the second Hot Wheels variation of the Arkham Knight Batmobile, which just came out in 2015.
