Comic-Con 2012 - The Batmobiles

Warner Bros brought a bunch of Batmobiles to Comic-Con.

808 Pureview | Batman 1966
Adam West drove this car in the original Batman tv series.  Creator George Barris owns the car.  One of my roommates saw it driving around downtown San Diego.

808 Pureview | Tim Burton's Batman 1989 and Batman Returns 1992
Michael Keaton's Batmobile.  I have a matchbox or hot wheels version of this somewhere.

808 Pureview | Batman Forever 1995
Val Kilmer drove this in Joel Shumacher's first Batman flick.  Showed up on The Drew Carey Show.

808 Pureview | Batman and Robin 1997
George Clooney's Batmobile.  I wonder if it has nipples.

808 Pureview | The prototype Tumbler from Batman Begins 2005 and The Dark Knight Rises 2012
My roommate also saw this one.  It was getting towed around.  Probably not street legal.

Christian Bale's Batmobile.  This was the first one I saw at the little park in front of the Hilton Bayfront.

808 Pureview | The Batpod from The Dark Knight 2008 and the Dark Knight Rises 2012
This was inside the convention center at the Warner Bros booth.  I regret not taking more time to take a better shot of it, but foot traffic made it impossible to stop for more than 5 seconds.
