I have to get a copy, but Amazon is out. There is some kind of booklet that comes with it. It does say Region 2 on the ebay sale

Are you talking about Return to the Batcave? I got it from Amazon.co.uk

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00R5A7EJ8

There is one on there now for £24.99 but when I ordered mine it was £14.99. I think they come in and out of stock, so you might want to keep an eye out. It's region free so will play on US blu-ray players.

I did notice some kind of slight "ghosting" effect at times but I chalked that up to it being from another region.

Mine did not come with a booklet.

I got it. I accidentally ordered one on ebay with the booklet, but it is a region 2 dvd. From my searches, this is a Swedish release, and not a UK release.

Thanks in advance. I wish Revell would rerelease the old Monogtram Batman, Robin, Penguin and the other old Aurora kits as well.......Ah, Well.

Cheers,
Keep in mind, I already had some of the colors that I needed like Blacks, Grays and Fleshtones.
I usually only use the Ceramcoat brand.

Because there are different shades of green used on his gloves, boots, shirt and shorts, I picked up Kelly Green, Leaf Green, Christmas Green, Forest Green and Black Green.
I'll experiment with these to see what looks best.

For his cape I picked up, Yellow, (for a base coat) and two different shades of Yellow Satan that I'll dry brush onto the cape.

I already have my Flesh tones that I like to use but for his tights, I picked up, a lighter Fleshtone.
You'll want his legs to look different than his arms and face so that it gives the impression of him wearing tights.

I needed a new bottle of Burt Umber so I picked one up. I MAY incorporate that in his hair.
The problem with Burt's hair is that (like Julie Newmar) sometimes his hair looks darker than other times so I'll have to play around with it to see what looks best.

Lastly, I picked up a bottle of, Cardinal Red for his vest.
I've never used this shade before but (in the bottle) it looks to be a closer shade than the regular Reds that I normally use.

I'd like to post another tutorial like I did with the Batman model kit ( https://www.facebook.com/13447285323945 ... 8985418165 ) but the problem is, these take so darn long to do.

Here are my other three kits from this series.

Thanks Larry. :)

And NOW for something NEW!!!!

I'm so happy, my Son gave me an early Birthday gift today.
He ordered me the Chuck Williams replica Robin mask.
I've got it in a display case with my Mattel Batman cowl (Chuck's cowls look much better).

I was the kid that no one argued with while playing Batman because I never wanted to be Batman, I always wanted to be Robin.
This is SO Cool!

I'm both happy and disappointed.

I'm happy with this new CD.
The music itself is great but there is also a booklet with cool photos that I've never seen before.

I'm a little disappointed in the face sculpt of the new Robin model kit.
I'm just not seeing enough of Burt Ward in it.
It's too bad because the other three models in this series are (in my opinion) spot on.
Maybe I'm just being too picky.

The Robin face and hair seem to look a lot more like Victor Paul, his stunt double. Did the sculptor mistakenly use some wrong photos from the series?

My wife gave me these yesterday for my birthday. She picked them up at Wallyworld. The Christmas stocking is awesome and the b&w Sprang Batman mug is the stuff! Very happy with them. I'll most likely use the Amazon card for a Bat-related item as well.
