Michael Keaton’s Batmobile by McFarlane Toys Review

Michael Keaton is back in action as the Dark Knight in the upcoming The Flash movie! With Keaton’s iconic Batman making a comeback, it’s only fitting that his Batmobile follows suit.

The 1989 film “Batman” directed by Tim Burton, starring Michael Keaton, redefined the superhero genre. Departing from the campy portrayals of the past, it presented a dark and brooding Caped Crusader. With gothic aesthetics, memorable performances, and a captivating storyline, the film resonated globally, solidifying Batman’s place in pop culture. Michael Keaton’s Batman returns in the upcoming “The Flash” movie, connecting the iconic 1989 film to the larger DC Universe, further cementing its milestone status in Batman’s rich history.

Adding to the excitement, McFarlane Toys has released the Batmobile (The Flash Movie) as part of their toy line for the upcoming film. Now, fans can own a piece of the action and bring the epic adventures of Batman and The Flash to life right in their own homes.

Batman without his iconic Batmobile is like a knight without his steed or a superhero without their powers. The Batmobile is an essential part of Batman’s crime-fighting arsenal, and it’s a symbol of his power, style, and unwavering dedication to justice.

Without further ado, here’s our review of the iconic Batmonibile by McFarlane Toys.

Taking the Batmobile out of the box for the first time is a truly amazing experience. It’s accompanied by a trading card and two tail fins that require a simple assembly. Once you’ve got that done, you’re ready to hit the road!

The size of the Batmobile is worth highlighting as well. Measuring a generous 22 inches in length, this toy is perfectly proportioned to complement any 7-inch McFarlane action figures. Whether you have a collection of Batman figures or other characters from the DC Multiverse, this Batmobile is the ideal ride to accompany them on their crime-fighting adventures. Its impressive scale adds a sense of realism and grandeur to your display, making it a centerpiece that demands attention.

The standout feature of this toy is its impeccable attention to detail. From the sleek, jet-black design with its long, curvaceous body and low-slung silhouette, to the jet turbine at the nose and the detailed engine and bat-logo wheels, McFarlane Toys has left no stone unturned in capturing the essence of the iconic vehicle. The level of detail is simply mind-blowing, making it almost 90% movie accurate.

But the fun doesn’t stop there! The vehicle’s canopy can be opened, allowing you to place a 7″ Michael Keaton Batman Action Figure inside (sold separately). The cockpit itself is beautifully detailed, adding another layer of authenticity to the toy. Plus, the paintwork is top-notch, with the jet-black finish giving it a sleek and polished look.

And here’s the cherry on top: the Batmobile is not just for display, but for play as well. Its functionality shines through, making it a joy to engage in imaginative adventures. The attention to detail extends to the interior, where every aspect of the cockpit has been thoughtfully crafted. This toy truly captures the essence of the iconic Batmobile, offering endless hours of thrilling playtime.

While the Batmobile is an impressive collectible, there are a few areas where improvements could have been made.

Firstly, some enthusiasts have noted that the cockpit has a different paint finish compared to the rest of the vehicle, which slightly detracts from its overall aesthetic appeal.

Secondly, considering its price tag of $60, it would have been desirable to see more included accessories, such as a flame effect for the jet boosters, to enhance the playability and authenticity of the toy. Lastly, there have been reports from some customers that the tail fins received were either both right or both left, indicating a manufacturing inconsistency that could have been addressed for a more polished product.
