Gonna pass. It looks like they're using those dopey Hot Toys sculpts. With the same peanut head cowl and saggy, bent bat ears.

That was one of my first thoughts,...
They look like the Hot Toys figures.
However, I really like both the HT figures and these statues.

I don't think we know what the final product is going to look like. To me, the pictures in the advertisement seem to be more "artist concept" than photos of the actual finished product. That being said, I think they have potential, and so have decided to order the 1st figure, since they offer a 365-day return policy.

Makes me wonder if after Batman & Robin will there be more issues?

Exactly why I went ahead and placed my order! If I don't like it, I can return it!

I agree it's hard to know what to expect as these look to just be artwork and not even prototypes.

But that said, they have potential...

Hot Toys image no doubt which leads me to agree this is just an artist concept.
I think they're very sharp, and at 7 1/2" tall much more manageable to keep somewhere. The clock is rockin-- I love the design of it all it's missing are Batman and Robin figures swinging on the pendulums. That is a bit pricey for a clock though.

I'm really cutting back on stuff, so I'll likely pass, but very cool just the same.

It is a bit troubling that all the devices in the Batcave seem to be short-circuiting. :lol:

Exactly what I thought. It appears to be a Photoshopped concept piece using the Hot Toys head in the cut and paste. Here's a higher res that may shed light on that assessment.

Exactly what I was thinking. Fantastic design, but a pit too pricey for me
