"Batman Forever" 1/4 scale Batboat movie prop


Recently, a slick piece of Dark Knight-era movie memorabilia was offered to me; a 1/4 scale fiberglass Batboat movie prop from "Batman Forever." I'm more into the pre-1980s comic book and TV show vessel and had to pass it up.

It is an unfinished fiberglass kit and supposedly one of four made for the film. I figured some of you who watch the new films may be interested in this.

Hi found your blog via the Batblog, I'm more of a toy collector, but I like to see restoration projects, yours looks like it's pretty cool. Anyway at one time I scanned a brochure on the batboat that a friend that said he worked on the original let me borrow, I posted it at my blog. If you click the images you can get a larger view.

Feel free to copy them to your drive and post on your blog as well.

Thanks for the link.

I have that brochure, also, and have seen another version of it.

That's a cool pic of the two Batman Forever Batmobiles, I was wondering where did you take that pic and where are those batmobiles at ?

I think that photo was posted at the 1966 Batmobile forum a while back.

I didn't take it.

Is there any way that we could follow up the whereabouts of this Batboat? I'd love to acquire it, it is one of the best bat-vehicles made.
