Anyone Know Where to find a Good Batphone?

I decided that after many years of longing, I'm finally ready to take the plunge and get my holy grail, a screen accurate Batphone just like what was used in the series, complete with lights and sounds! Anyone know a good place to find what I'm looking for?

Thanks!! :D

Currently doesn't exists from any crafter or vendor that meet your specs. Samy Huven made a great one but stopped making them about 10 years ago. Even then, it didn't make the sounds you'd want.

I would ask for more pictures and maybe post a video on YouTube. It can cost as much to purchase the components and make it yourself as that guy is charging. Plus his feedback is really good.

Pretty neat. I didn't see anything about it lighting up. Great price for a non mass produced piece.

Why is it that for being such an ICONIC piece of Pop Culture, AND with the technology of today, (LED Lights & Digital Recording), that NO ONE has made a commercially available, authentic, working prop replica of the Batphone!

I am utterly dumbfounded! :cry:
