’66 Batmobile Is Here!

Years ago, we heard about a 1:8 scale 1966 Batmobile partwork model coming out from Eaglemoss. Unfortunately, they went out of business before it was ever released. Well, behind the scenes Fanhome was working hard on assuming the build and obtaining the proper licenses to bring this to market. Today, Fanhome opened up the pre-order pages for this classic automobile with shipping expected to begin Feb 2024!

  1. Are you going to be doing this build as well? I have started getting parts but holding off until I get a few stages before I start anything

    1. I do not plan on building the ’66 Batmobile. I have a lot of partworks going on right now and need to finish a few before I consider another.

    2. I fiddled with the first round of parts. I’m following someone on YT so I know what to expect but, I’ll be putting it together one evening next year. Until then I have its basic dimensions. That way I can work on the display area. By the way, the Moebius Batman kits are 1/8th scale as well. I’ll also be working on correcting some parts like the beacon and dash/door panels.

  2. Here’s hoping you’ll add Herbie the Love bug and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to the lineup. Can you imagine a Chitty with working wings?!
