    has anyone ever seen a Mexican bootleg toy of the Batman Returns Batmobile that transformed into an awesome robot. If you have do you have any pics. I almost bought it about 8 years ago, but at the time was too young and my mom wouldnt purchase it for me with her checking account.

    The colors were mainly black with the rims being yellow and the missile launcher area on the center front bumper was yellow as well.

    The legs folded out from the front rear well areas and the back wheels became the shoulders. The hood of the batmobile with winshield was the chest of the robot mode and the robot mode head popped up from the rear area of the batmobile. The head was yellow with black or red eyes and mouth plate. The head looked similar to optimus primals head(the bat version)

    Any help is welcomed as I REAAAAALY want that figure!!!

    don't know, but i remember seeing a batmobile looking thing that transformed at goodwill once, it was kind'a lame, though and small. obviously knock off thing. since it didn't have any markings.

    but i don't remember the thing you are talking about right now, how ever there is that shadow tek batmobile and batjet that transform, now.

    Hey the batmobile transformer I saw was all black except for the missile launcher round thing in the center of the front bumper. The front rear wells folded out to become the legs. It was one awesome looking original ko made figure. It sure beats that stupid batman trek transformer or w/e

    Is that what the good will one looked like?

    Funnily enough, I thought of this guy when you said "transforming batmobile".

    I'm trying to picture what you described, although it's nothing like this one. The arms and legs form out of different parts of the car.

    I've honestly never heard of a transforming Batmobile from that far back before. I'd be interested in seeing pics too.

    thats what the batmobile looked like and the missile thing that is firing was made of yellow plastic on the transforming batmobile bootleg, and the robot legs were formed from the batmobiles left front and right front side. They pulled out from the front!

    omg. I am laughing so hard I think I hurt myself. If I ever think that Marvel Crossover Spiderman looks bad, I can look at that and feel better about him.

    I know what you're talking about. The Keaton-era Batmobile TF KO. I never got it, as all the ones on eBay were far too expensive, but there was a discussion here ages ago about it. However, I think you're imagination is playing it up. The arms were really, really stubby, and owners (Shockingly!) found the plastic quality substandard.

    With the recent crackdown on eBay KO's, and with the KO itself undoubtedly out of production, you're probably going to be very hard pressed to find one anymore.

    Though I do own Titanicbot. :D

    The one I saw was when i still had a pentium 2 computer. I saved it to a floppy disc back then. I came across a few floppy discs last night but dont have a computer to open them at the moment since I have a laptop now. Im hoping its on one these floppy discs
