Mattel 2012 #X3081 Batcopter

I had wanted a Batcopter for some time and just never got around to it, having trolled eBay for the old Ertl or Corgi versions, setting the auctions on 'Watch' status and then not doing anything. Well finally, Mattel put out its repo of the old Ertl die-cast 'copter and all I had to do was drive to Target and there it was on the shelf. I'm gonna say it's 1/64 scale but it looks even smaller. Oh heck, for now, let's just stick with the 1/64 size, making it perfect for the collector who doesn't have a lot of shelf space. Now, if some toy maker out there will put out a 1/43 scale Batcopter - not a kit mind you - but a really nice die-cast version, then I'll jump on it like a fly on dookie!!! LOL  Enjoy!
