Thank you to Jada Toys for providing their Batman Forever Batmobile & Batman Metals Die Cast Vehicle for review.
Batman Forever was released back in June 1995 and introduced fans to several villains such as The Riddler (played by Jim Carrey) , Two-Face (played by Tommy Lee Jones), and a new Batman played by Val Kilmer. With the new film, a new Batman, new villains, and an all new Batmobile. This Batmobile is unique to the others due to the engine being exposed on the hood and sides of the vehicle, and you can see all that great detail and film likeness that is offered in the 1:24 scale and 1:32 scale.
In the film, the silver engine part can light-up in blue, which is a feature not available in this product. The 1:24 scale features an opening roof that slides open to reveal two seats and a steering wheel that has realistic details as seen in the film. While the 1:32 scale Batmobile does not include this feature, the two are identical in every other way. Both are made of die cast and plastic parts, with most of the inner body being die cast, and the outer parts on the car are made of plastic. This includes the parts over the engine, roof, wings, turbo, and tires.
The 1:24 scale Batmobile includes a Batman figurine that is non-articulated, and is also made of plastic and die cast parts. The figurine has a good likeness to Actor Val Kilmer, The batsuit is painted mostly in black with a gold and black logo on his chest, and a bronze utility belt. The only part with plastic is the cape, and the weight of the die cast helps the figure stand without falling. The figure also cannot fit inside the Batmobile.
The 1:24 scale Batmobile measures 11″ long, and the 1:32 scale Batmobile measures 6-1/2″ long. The comparison on these gives you an idea of what to expect, and every big of detail with the exception of the opening roof is the same. The tires are also nicely done with the logo on the hubcaps, and ever though these aren’t rubber tires, the sculpting and texture gives it the appearance of such.
Overall, this is a great Batmobile, and one in our top all time favorite designs. The craftsmanship on these is incredible and fans of the film and DC Comics will love these.
