DIAMOND SELECT BATPHONE

The BATPHONE is Coming — From Diamond Select!
Is great news. Now if I could only get my gloves on the Batphone that was in Commissioner Gordon's office, that would truly make my year!

It's too bad that it won't function as a telephone.
I wonder if it'll light up?

From what I've read I don't believe it will. At an RRP of $29.99, it's a really fun piece for those who don't have one of the fan made versions.

It's a highly stylized version of the Batmobile's Batphone, but I do kind of dig it.

Is there a removable plug in the bottom of the phone to empty the coins out?

Yes and the plastic is translucent enough to put a light in side if you want to modify into a more functional looking Batphone.

I put mine on the desk next to my Shakespeare bust, but it just didn't look right. So I moved it to a more appropriate location.

I'm tempted to do the same given that my Wayne Manor style phone lives next to my Shakespeare Bust.

That is EXACTLY where I will put mine as soon as I get my hands on one.

For what it's worth, I found a plastic jar about the diameter of a soda can with a screw-on lid and covered it with black duct tape that roughly matches the plastic trim in my car. Then I used velcro tape to anchor the phone to the jar lid, and inserted the jar into the cup holder. I had planned to rig up magnets to keep the handset attached to the base, but it stays put pretty well all by itself.

I'm in the car alone most of the time, but if I have a passenger who needs the cup holder, the whole thing is easy to remove.

Cheers,

Jim

So, what's the reaction at stop lights when people see you on your "Bat Phone" ?

I did much the same thing and I have it sitting in the cup holder between the front seats. I've had a few comments like " hey nice phone does it work?" Others have said Cool some have just rolled their eyes. I use it for parking change and stuff.
