Hey, I'm a big fan of your site, and I've been looking forward to this review! I knew it was coming! I was 11 years old when I saw Batman on opening day way back in '89, and I've been waiting for a figure like this ever since. Thanks to my 6 year old niece who has trouble keeping secrets, I know that my brother got me the figure and Diamond Luxe blu-ray combo as a gift for Christmas. I can hardly wait! I really love the homage to Toy Biz packaging. I may track another down later on to keep mint, but the one I'm getting next week is definitely getting opened.Keep up the great work here! This is a great site, and the hard work you out into it definitely shows.
Thank you very much! I always appreciate it when folks take the time to leave a comment here... Really means a lot to me. :)I too was 11 when I first saw Batman '89! And it remains as fresh and thrilling today as it felt first viewing it those 25 years ago...
No problem, man! (Celticsfan was my old google name before I changed it to my real name, by the way.)And that's a really great custom you did there on the NECA video game figure... reminds me of the old Kenner Iron Winch Batman hanging on my wall. Before this movie accurate figure was announced, I had contacted a customizer about making the video game figure resemble the movie look. He was backed up with requests at the time, but it turned out all right. Judging by your in depth review, I think NECA knocked it out of the park.I really like your YouTube videos, too. The one where you first screen Batman 89' for your son was especially cool. It took me back to when I was 11 and my aunt took me to see it on opening day. At the time I was mainly into G.I. Joe, so she had to give me a primer on the mythology before the trailers started. After that day, I was a die-hard fan.
I love this figure. Those photos are fantastic man.
I want him in my collection!
I still can't believe they thought that cowl looked good. The rest of the figure looks great, but the head and cowl are just wonky as can be.
