Just got the New Bradford Exchange "BATMAN TO THE BATCAVE" Statue!

Post by To The Batpoles! »

Hi Gang!

Just wanted to show everyone my New "BATMAN TO THE BATCAVE" Classic Batman Statue that I just received from the Bradford Exchange! I did not realize it had lights! I'm pretty pleased with it. What do you all think?

Wonder why they didn't ship mine. I ordered it day one.

I'm not sure how much it costs, but it has a lot of charm if you think of it as a classic, but show-accurate, Aurora kit.

Nice observation-- it does look like an Aurora kit.

Big Daddy - is there a piece of Styrofoam covering your Bat Computer? It looks a bit different than the one in Frank's photo.

I do like this - I think it captures the spirit of the Adam West Batman without being an exact replica of Adam's likeness. Yes, it's different from the image in the ad, but it's still well done!

Yes, that is indeed a piece of Padding in Big Daddy K's photo. Mine had it too and it was VERY tricky to dislodge it! I kept thinking I was going to break off one of the Cape Points in doing so!

I'm glad you're pleased with Frank, that's all that matters at the end of the day. Very cool that it light's up, I think that feature definitely elevates this item.

I'll reserve final judgement until I see one in person, but being totally honest, I was more than a little underwhelmed when I saw the first images of the ACTUAL shipping version of this product. I was under no illusions that we would get a likeness as "on-point" as the Photoshop rendering that i'm pretty sure used the Hot Toys sculpt, but equally at the price point I was expecting something a little more refined.

Not mine. A photo I snagged for a side by side comparison.

Who's getting Robin, the second in this series?

What hope is there for the Batmobile?

That was definitely the Hot Toys head in the mockup-- I don't like when they use composites rather than the actual design-- I'd prefer lineart sketches to mockups.

I really like the Batmobile, can overlook the fact that the likeness' are not there and even the fact that Adam never jumped into the car-- it's an homage to the comics in the '66 style in my mind.

But do I really need ANOTHER Batmobile?? Even though it lights up and has music. PRETTY neat.

What's with the sound effect? Is the bat-computer exploding?

Probably installed Windows 8...
