Mattel Creations made big headlines in recent months due to its 1:10, radio-controlled Hot Wheels model of Tesla’s enigmatic Cybertruck. Now, looking to deliver yet another sleek, contemporary build, the beloved toy brand has conjured up a 1:10 scale R/C Batmobile, inspired by none other than The Batman, the upcoming superhero film that people simply can’t wait to see.

While Robert Pattinson is lucky enough to drive this bad boy around in person, collectors will be delighted to get their hands on this sweet new offering from Mattel. The edgy muscle car comes equipped with a pistol grip remote control, providing optimized maneuvering even at speeds over 10 MPH. For the sake of authenticity, it boasts a fully-realized cockpit, a fear-inducing rear jet, and LED lights in the headlamps.

The latest rendition of this iconic movie car was designed by renowned vehicle artist Ash Thorp and has already garnered enough appreciation to receive its own LEGO model, too. Seeing as the film is likely bound to be equally well-received, it comes as no surprise that big names in the toy industry are continuously harping on this latest superhero flick, to the benefit of collectors and enthusiasts everywhere.

If you’re as eager for the latest film as we are, then you may want to consider grabbing one of these limited-edition builds while you can. The Hot Wheels R/C Original Edition Batmobile will be available for presale starting February 24th for $100.

Purchase: $100
