Toy Spotlight - Super Powers Batmobile

This awesome toy was released in the first wave of the Super Powers Collection by Kenner in 1984.

It was a great looking toy that certainly took some inspiration from the 1966 Batmobile. I especially like how they made the car itself resemble Batman. 

Like all the figures in the line, this toy had power actions. As seen in the photo above it had a battering ram in the front and villain catcher in the back that could be engaged using a switches in the cockpit. 

This is most certainly one of my favorite toys from childhood. Excited to finally have it in my collection!

  1. I just found a loose version of this vehicle at Value Village. It is missing the driver's side windscreen but for five dollars I couldn't pass it up. Such a great piece.
