The Penguin Batmobile!
I had no idea that Hot Wheels were gonna make this Batmobile.
So when I saw this at the store I was totally surprised.
I have seen all of the 66 series as an adult but I remember a few episodes from my youth and this was one of them.
Here is a screen grab from those of you who don't remember this episode.
If you look for it it is the episode that aired March 23-24th 1966 and it is called "The Penguin Goes Straight".
I remember how nervous this episode made me as a kid. "Don't trust him Batman" I was thinking.
Oh and the blasphemy of the Penguin using the Batmobile as his own! Shocking stuff to a kid.
In my search for the episode I found this cool website titled "Batmobile Gadgets".
The website shows the special tools that only the Batmobile has and it even has some video clips of them in action. Batmobile Gadgets
It is the regular Batmobile with the extras the Penguin threw on to make the car his own.
He changed the symbol on the side to a penguin and added a umbrella on the drivers side and on the front hood.
I think the umbrella on the hood is a gun. ("The one I bought is NON-Firing)
I love the details on these cars and I am thrilled that Hot Wheels has put these out for us.
Nice quality and a reasonable price for the great toy you get.
