The 1997 Movie Version Batmobile – Batman & Robin’s Frost Batmobile is the one-seater ready for the wintery weather of Gotham.
From Beast Kingdom. Batman fans and petrol heads rejoice! In honor of the 80th anniversary of Batman, join Beast Kingdom in the Batman 80th anniversary Batmobile pullback car series! With a rich and diverse history, Batman’s vehicle of choice has undeniably been the Batmobile. The on-screen depiction of the muscle cars have varied from sleek, to hulking armored battle-tanks, but the one thing they have in common is that these cars can definitely fight their way through any battle!
In Batman & Robin, the aerodynamic chassis design and “T” axis wheelbase provided the Batmobile counterbalance gyrometric stability, allowing for high velocity 90-degree turns at speeds greater than 70 mph without losing momentum. Initial plans had the Batmobile being able to transform into the “Bathammer” vehicle seen in the film. The 1997 Movie Version Batmobile is prominently featured in one scene in which, as Batman and Robin are in pursuit, Mr. Freeze shoots the underside of the car for several seconds with freeze-gun, before the car crash-lands. However, in the next scene in the Batcave, the Batmobile is sitting back on its pedestal appearing to be in perfect condition.
The Beast Kingdom Classic Batmobile pull-back cars measure about 2.5″ long and are the perfect starter collection for DC fans both young and old.
