Toynami 29-Inch Batmobile Replica Is Impressive, But Is It $2,000 Worth Of Impressive?

By Andrew Liszewski

At 29-inches in length, this scale model of the Batmobile from the original Tim Burton BATMAN film certainly dwarfs even the 1:18 scale versions currently on the market, but when it comes to details, there’s really no comparison. It was created using the molds from the original 1989 movie models (what? you think all those stunts were done with a full-sized car?) and the interior details were scaled down from the original full-size cockpit props.

It’s got working LED headlights and taillights, a simulated fire effect at the back of its jet engine and it weighs a whopping 38lbs which equates to a price tag of about $53 a pound, which might be easier to swallow for some people. You can pre-order one now from Sideshow Collectibles even though the 500 piece limited run won’t be available until the 3rd quarter, but you’ll need to cough up a $400 non-refundable deposit in order to secure one.

    Yeah, I already ordered this a while ago using the FlexPay option from Sideshow. I'm a sucker for anything from the Keaton Batman movies, which is why I also ordered the $1500 Batwing and the $500 cowl… Thank God for Sideshow's FlexPay!

    They should have put a r/c motor in it. What's the point if you can drive it around? It not like r/c components are rare technology, and they wouldn't add too much to the cost making this replica too expensive.
