Batman Begins - Batmobile Thumbler

The Limited Edition 1/64 Thumbler Batmobile from Hot Wheels.
No car has ever been like the Batmobile, or been called upon to perform the incredible feats that Batman demands of his unique vehicle. Maneuvering Gotham City's streets in ways we've never before seen, or roaring from the Batcave, it is a concept car mixed with a fantasy made real in steel.

I got this set of Batmobile two years ago and almost forgotten to post them up on my blog. As you can see the picture are taken on my chair.
This replicas has very well paint job, real 1/64 scale and with movable cover.
(check out the picture)

This are the earlier Batmobile Thumbler which has the funny look when I first have it. The obvious thing is there front wheel.
Here are the side by side comparison of both HW Batmobile Thumbler

The Ectomobile or Ghostbuster Acto-1 By Johnny Lightning

The Movie Ghostbusters is a supernatural comedy multi-media franchise created in 1984 by Columbia Pictures.
The transport is the Ectomobile, or Ecto-1. It is a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Limo-style endloader combination car (ambulance conversion) were use for the Ghostbusters.

This Ectomobile is the second car I would like to collect after my first movie car DeLorean (Back to the Future) back in 2001. But I only manage to start collecting it in 2008.

Here are all the Ectomobile that I have, which is made by Johnny Lightnning. It does come with a few different colours and packing design.
This first model is the most wanted Ecto-1 compare the rest. It has the very original colour as the car in the Ghoustbusters 2
