    Paid my one up today with The Good the Bad & The Robots.

    Lee has said he has no arrival info yet but hopefully won't be too long :)

    I'd imagine that means April at the earliest I'll be getting Bats as I went with OSB's combo deal :(

    Tbh April would suit me on these, as I've just had shipping notification of the enterbay t800 and the 2 week warning for Jack Sparrow, and I like a little time between figures to appreciate them individually... But I appreciate that's just me.. ;-)

    You need some self control, it will make your wallet feel better.

    Still waiting for mine to ship, he has some in stock now ready to ship, but they are extra, mine will ship when his bulk supply comes in for goodshipped on ebay.

    Mine arrived this morning :clap:

    Amazing how time flies as somehow I've been playing with him for over an hour and didn't even notice :laugh:

    Initial thoughts....

    1- I didn't think I'd ever get the cape right but the key really is manipulating the wire inside, persist with that and eventually you'll get it less puffy and more tight to the body :)

    2- The arms, not as easy to raise as I was thinking they may be and I thought at one point I had a dud but little by little they seemed to become a little more pliable and I've got him in the pose I wanted now :thumbsup:

    Very happy with him like most people I've currently got him displayed next to Christopher Reeves and the two look sweet as on a shelf together, it'll be a shame to break them up with Joker finally gets here

    I had no problem with changing the mouth pieces on mine they seemed to go on and more importantly come off very easily as did the PERS section (that actually came off in my hand while I was futzing the cape but I dont mind it being a little loose if it is as it means I can change the expression without having to take the whole figure out)

    Like I said I'm very very happy today he really is an awesome figure :smashin:

    Nice one tommyh84, stick up some pictures when you get some time.

    Mines still not shipped yet, but I can wait a little longer I guess.

    Will do :smashin:

    One other thing I should mention is the very first thing I did when I tried removing him from the box was stab my finger on the gauntlet blades. Be careful they're very sharp!!! :laugh:

    Okay these are probably the best pictures you're going to get from me (when Hot Toys stop releasing must have figures I'll invest in a DSLR)

    Nice! Is that one of those detolf or something cabinets from IKea? I ordered mine from SSC but it's on back order, it's cool though, I can wait--still recovering from last month shopping spree of Terminator Items. So broke...so so broke....

    Oh by the way, the 1989 Batmobile is up for Pre-order 629.99 US at Sideshow Collectibles or 579.99 at BBTS (Big Bad Toy Store also for pre-order. Flex is available with SSC and the monthly payment is spread over 10 months with a 63.00 down. I'm on that for sure! It will be mine, oh, yes it will be mine. The 10 month spread really makes it affordable.

    You should try Collectibles Direct in the UK they do flex pay and it will probably work out cheaper by the time the VAT gets added on and the FedEx £10 rip off fee.

    There's not going to be a huge amount of difference either way, custom fees for the bat mobile will be around £76 + £10 fedex bill. I would imagine most UK dealers will mark this up at around £480 (so £80 more than what the $630 converts to)

    Plus the shipping from SS, Can't imagine it been cheap considering the size the box will be. Think it's free posting from CD

    Let me do the math for you guys, $629.99+$35 (shipping charge)=$664.99, convert to GBP at rate 0.65 $664.99*0.65=£432.24, plus 20% vat and £10 Fedex fee (I am thinking if SSC will use Fedex as the box will be very big), £432.24*1.2+£10=£528.69. So if you buy from SSC, you need to pay at least £520.:lesson:

    Sounds like the collectors in the UK really get ripped off with all sorts of fees. Yikes!

    Tommyh84, today you have just made a great contribution to all the collectors out there! bless you, my friend.

    Just fantastic, I can't wait to get mine although I'm still waiting on my backordered Michael Keaton Batman from Sideshow Collectibles. No worries, though, it wil get here and I will patiently wait like I will patiently wait for the 1989 Batmobile that I pre-ordered already to be released next year.

    Peace!

    My last flexpay was on the 15th,(allegedly), and my account says Shipping Soon. If it doesn't ship out this week, I'm gonna pull the floorboards up!
