    FTC Blue Batmobile

    I drop quite a bit of coin at FTC last week. I already added my two cents to some of the Wonder Woman and Hanna-Barbera figures, so now it's on to my second FTC vehicle, the Blue Batmobile.

    I am a stickler for packing and package quality and FTC did well on both. The box is nice and simple (and smaller than I remember from when I was a kid!) and the Batmobile is protectively packed, with the front and back covered with bubble wrap.

    The car is a well done replication of the original (which I am too lazy to pull out right now). The wheels roll freely, which is a plus after my Batlab rear wheels scraping the body.

    Everything FTC does seems to come out much shinier than Mego (like the Repro Mego figure hair), but the shiny blue works for the Batmobile.

    It comes with a small sticker sheet that has two Batman door stickers and one tail light sticker. The tail light sticker is not a perfect fit (as you will see), but it's on well enough.

    The inside looks good, although my steering wheel is crooked. Not a big deal though.

    I am pleased with this and happy to have a blue Batmobile. I think I will try to track down some oval logo stickers for the door to make this more of a Super Friends / Super Powers type of Batmobile.

    I wish we could get an Arrowcar, but I have a feeling these have not sold well enough to warrant it (even having the van parts haven't warranted a Mystery Machine).

    I think a Mystery Machine would be the icing on the cake along with a few more creepy villains.

    So, I decided to open my black Batcycle and the most exciting thing was the stickers... I forgot all of the stickers that the FTC Batcycle came with, as this is my first one.

    I no longer need to find Bat logo stickers and now I have my Super Friends Batmobile

    Batman, with a nice, tight fit in his mini-Batmobile!

    The red Bats on the wheels throw it off a little, but.. eh. It's a toy!

    Too bad my SF Batman's body sucks

    That's a great Super Friends theme: It's perfect!

    That is very tempting. I have one shelf in my big display for my Bat-vehicles, so I really don't have the room...but it looks GREAT.

    Wow! That looks super nice.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...
