Neat little car-- Lakeside has the best price and free shipping with code SHIPSFREE
So I got it for $10. It'll be one of the few Batmobiles I have with Red Stripes.

And that model kit is very cool, I got the Mrs to put mine together-- she likes doing models-- I would smash it into 5000 pieces out of frustration if I tried, and it's pretty nice when it's done.
I sanded Batman's ears down a bit, and bought different color paints for the figures..these came out before the kits with the Adam and Burt figures, so they were too "cartoony" looking for me. I'll snap some photos as time allows.

Also did you notice Eric Seltzer's name in the instructions? Larger than Barris's. Eric told me Barris refused to help at all, so he came to the rescue. Also, to be accurate for the pilot vehicle, doesn't the pin striping (sp?) need to be white?

Just tried the SHIPSFREE code and I get this message “Coupon has already expired”. :( Looked at Retailmenot.com and couldn’t find any free shipping codes there.

Can you have Mrs. Fish come over and build my Batmobile? ;)

She probably would-- although I've got a few more for her to take care of.
Sorry the code didn't work-- I didn't notice an expiration date on it.

If I remember correctly, John, I saw the pilot car at a show years ago and the stripes were orange, but this was long after it was repainted.

Batman : The Golden Age Omnibus Volume 5

This is the first of the omnibuses that I've bought, since I collected all the Archives. I have the Detective and World's Finest stories in it reprinted already, but the Batman issues are from after the Archives stopped.

That's the era I'd look at too.

With that bust, I find it funny that the box illustrations don't match the item lol. Prototype on box perhaps?

That's not a photo of my actual bust. I'm a terrible photographer.

The bust, to me, looked better than the prototype photos that I saw. I thought the likeness was better than the Batgirl one, but those are the only two from the series that I own. I didn't like the likenesses on some of the promo photos that I saw. Does anyone else have them and do the likenesses look better than the photos?

I had the Batusi statue but was turned off by the really poor paint job mine had. If I had the time I would have given it a repaint but it wouldn't help that the hands didn't fall into the right place either-- in the box photo his fingers are over his eyes but the one I had they were way off the head.

If you got a good one you should be very happy. It's a great concept.

I agree with andy, I had seen many pictures online of this bust with a bad paint job, a shame, as this was such a good idea to make into a variant batman bust!

This arrived from Ashley Wood's 3A's studio-- not to everyone's liking I'm sure, but I absolutely love it. The posing is incredible. It's part of a series that imagines the Batman characters as robots known as the Steel line.
They are only making 300 world-wide in this blue/gray scheme.

The Joker was just previewed and I dig that one too.

Andy,
No, not my thing, but whocares! It's cool looking, really posable, and YOU like it. I can see the appeal though. I like the yellow utility belt :D
Enjoy!

Just ordered these! I guess this particular style of Underoos has been available previously, but this is the 1st I have seen with Adam West's photo and the "Classic TV Batman" logo on the packaging. What fun!
