Become Batman with Bandai's 1989 Batmobile Model Kit

Bandai has announced several upcoming model kit releases, including a few for fans of The Dark Knight. The 1989 movie, Batman was my introduction to this iconic character, and many of this movie's elements have been seered into my memory.

Of the many items in Batman's aresenel, my favorite is the Batmobile. Bandai is putting their own spin on this classic big screen machine with their 1/35-scale Batman 1989 model kit. Set for release in March of 2022, this kit features a detailed interior, exterior, weaponry and turbine engine to give modelers the opportuntity to create an ultra-realistic piece for their collection.

The exterior parts of this Batmobile model kit feature a matte black finish and several movable parts have been built into the kit design, including a sliding roof engine turbine, and the optional display of machine guns.

The 1/35-scale Batman 1989 Batmobile model kit is priced at $39.99 and will be available for purchase in early 2022. Learn more about Bandai's upcoming Batman 1989 Batmobile kit release at

Catch Bandai's Eevee "Big" Pokemon Snap Kit Release

When I think about building a scale model, the first items that come to mind are cars, trucks, planes, and other vehicles. Figure and kit models are new to me, but I've had some experience with them, thanks to my kids. While there are plenty of ultra-realistic figure models on the market, there are also some kits that offer plenty of whimsy and imaginative intrigue.

Bandai has announced the upcoming release of its second Pok├ęPla "Big Model" kit, featuring Eevee. This kit combines molded plastic parts in multiple colors and a set of detail stickers to give you an easy-to-assemble and fun-to-display model.

This character kit is larger than some of their other Pokemon model offerings and features an overall height of 20cm. No cement, glue, or paint is required to complete assembly, making this a fun project that you could complete whenever the mood strikes you.

Eevee's head, ears, arms, and rear-end can be positioned and posed to your liking and should make the display of this model incredibly fun.

This kit is priced at $38.99 and will be available to purchase in late September (2021) To learn more about Bandai's Pokemon Eevee "Big" character model kit, visit
