Here’s another collectible for folks who can’t get enough of the new Batmobile from The Batman (2022). Coming from Bandai is the Bandai 1:35 Scale The Batman Batmobile Model Kit, based on the vehicle appearance in the upcoming Batman movie.
The model kit promised detailed reproduction of the movie’s vehicle, right down to the mechanical details and rubber tires. When completed, the 1:35 scale crimefighting vehicle would have functional steering too. It does not appear to have any light-up feature. Beyond that, not a lot is known about this gorgeous kit.
Both model kits are 1/35 scale. Unlike some versions of the 1989 Batmobile, Bandai Spirits’ take is presented in matte black molded plastic inside out. In addition to the obvious movie-accurate details, the model features a slide-open roof that reveals a detailed interior.
It further boasts machine guns and rocket anchors which you can display by swapping the parts. Finally, it has one feature that enamors me the most: a slide-out turbine that lets you have a look at the internal details. Now, that is super cool!
Meanwhile, the Tumbler is based on the vehicle’s appearance in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins. Like the 1989 Batmobile model kit, the Tumbler is also presented in matted black molded plastic.
It further touts a smoke cockpit element, rubber tires, and an insane amount of details right down to the hydraulic pistons of the front and rear suspension.
The Bandai Spirits 1989 Batmobile and the Batman Begins Batmobile aka Tumbler model kits have a retail price of 4,180 yen each. They will also be available in March 2022.
