Red Alert! Prepare Hot Wheels Batcopter For Immediate Takeoff...

Usually, I haven't had a lot of luck when looking for Hot Wheels Batman TV series inspired vehicles. It's just luck of the draw that I have been able to find Bat-vehicles like the Batmobile, Batboat, or Batcycle at either Toy R US or Target, but when it came to pick up the Batcopter, it was right there waiting for me.

While on  a mission at my friendly neighborhood Target to find another Battle For Gotham City for Eric Stettmeier's very own, I walked right into a display of the latest Hot Wheels representing the vehicles of the Batman TV series and movies. If it wasn't for Eric not being able to find the elusive Dark Knight Rises action figure set, I may have missed this entirely. Isn't karma cool?

The Batcopter itself is along lines in terms of detail of the other bat-vehicles and I am very pleased with its appearance. Although, the packaging does have a rock like background, reminiscent of the Batcave, I wish it had a matching blue background like the other vehicles. However, I do like the rock version better. I only wish Hot Wheels had done that with the earlier packing.

Nevertheless, I am glad to now have a complete set of the Batman vehicles that appeared on the TV series. Gosh darn it! I forgot about Batgirl's Batcycle. It's always the little things.

  1. I saw this one and the Batmobile the other night at my Target John and i was so tempted by them but pass.

    1. I wish I had your willpower, but I really wanted the Batcopter to complete the set.
