Great interview's Jimmy! You and Kevin are practically old pals now ;)
Thanks Ben!
I'm not saying he recognizes me, because he doesn't.
But I will chat with that guy anytime!

Looks like it has gone Unavailable on Amazon and Best Buy. Release date is 10/30 so not sure why it has been pulled down.

Shouldn't this thread be moved to the Merchandise section?
In the old days, only 66Batman related items were posted there. That was before 2008 releases of the Batmobile, etc. maybe the rules changed or loosened up. Ben and Scott will judge where it goes.

I ordered mine through Amazon. They may be holding it up for Christmas season. What does the WB site show.

Amazon knocked nearly $30 off just as it shipped today. Can’t wait to see it all in blu ray glory

Just saw this was sold out on the WB site. They do have a Batcave for 1/12 figures with an Alfred figure on that site

Controversial statement of the week (or just widely disagreed with) ;)

I purchased a few single episodes to see how it looked. No doubt, it's super high-res, super colorful, super clean, and a much better transfer overall.

That said; For me, I'm sticking to my DVD set. While the BD showcases the series in all its awesomeness, for me it lost something in the upgrade. It's too crisp and too bright. It lost its noir Deco comic book feel. I dont know how to put it exactly.

For me, it now looks like just a Batman cartoon as opposed to a Batman motion comic book. It's not dark anymore, which was a goal of theirs when making it. All the backgrounds for the entire series were painted on dark paper to give it a dark look and feel. That's largely lost in these bright new transfers.

Its not usually like me to choose the older\lesser of something. Our TV show box set episodes are awesome in their cleaned up, crisp new transfers. I love seeing them this way. I'm stoked for the fan base that BTAS is now in a fantastic release quality, but it's not for me. I like it better in its original form.
No more will they jeer and scoff, I'll cut their circulation off.
