Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

Since I've gone through all of my loose cars, it's time to organize and better display the carded collection. I had all of these cars pinned to a wall but as I looked at them I realized that there was really no organization to them. They kind of went up as I acquired them. In amongst everything I found duplicates that I didn't even know I had. This will turn in to a bit of a trade opportunity for those interested.

We're starting from oldest to newest.

I have one of these loose as well as this carded version. Back when Michael Keaton was Batman it wasn't Hotwheels, Matchbox, or even Corgi who got the license for figures and cars. The scale of course on this is way off, but it's still a fun piece of the collection.

Lots of folks seem to have these two models, but how many still have carded versions? I do have each of these in the loose collection as well.

I have been so tempted over the years to open this one, but have resisted. The blue paint and white stripes look killer, and I can only assume they look even better out of the plastic prison.

And just to show what I'm up against:
