  1. I agree with what you said in regard the the car being better proportioned with the figures. I was comparing the proportions of the car to itself.
  2. I have sat in one at an auction. But it is quite obvious that mattel had expanded the seating compartment length from front to back to accommodate the figures. It is very noticeable in the distance between the front bubble frame to the back one. In my opinion this throws the look of the whole car way off. (Granted, this just a toy and I am knitpicking but we ARE talkling about a comparison here which is inevitable.) McFarlane got this right and his looks more replica than toyish. Unfortunately he sacrificed a proper fit for the figures by not making the car a little bigger. Plus his window
  3. Some other interesting reveals here. These figures can't do the the splits at all. There appears to be no joint for this. Legs can forward and back and that is it. Disappointing for a figure at this size. The Batmobile is much better proportioned ( although not to the figure size) than the Mattel version. Guessing if the doors opened, Todd would have shown this in the pics. If this were were from another manufacturer, I would have said that these are cost saving decisions but since it is from McFarlane, he typical just does what he wants and perhaps they are design decisions. Not good ones in
  4. "Holy I can't fit in my seat, Batman!" "Me neither old chum. It appears that the Joker has some sort of evil shrinking ray. Perhaps our Mattel counterparts can make better use of our Batmobile."
  5. My thoughts exactly: it's all about the card back here. Maybe hasbro should knock 5 bucks off the price and just sell the cards? (Sarcasm intended)
  6. If these figures are not a testament as to how lazy and insulting Hasbro is then I dont know what is!!! Essentially they want you to pay 25 bucks for what really amounts to a new cardback!!! Are they out of their tree?? Ok and maybe a slightly better looking head. Fire the division head of this line and put me in charge!!! Here is what I would have done: For Luke: add a pair of hands where he can ACTUALLY hold his binoculars and look through them. Add the same stormtrooper belt that is an accessory with the Solo figure. Heck, it already exists, go to the bin and add one for each Luke figure.
  7. Yeah, come to think of it, it was 4:30. Used to have a war with my sister who wanted to watch The Flintsones at the same time.
  8. This is the very set I wanted back in the day when the reruns were on at 4pm in the afternoon. Todd did a much better job on this than Mattel did. The price points make this a no brainer even if the fluctuate upwards a little. Heck, even if you paid for that overpriced dis-proportioned nothing-but-a-hunk-plastic Mattel Batmobile, you are definitely going to get this one. I think several of you have been jaded in accepting higher prices for crap. I personally think the prices on these items are where they should be all along and would not bring them into question. Dont look a gift hor
  9. Whimsical?? Goofy? Maybe. Tongue in cheek? Definitely. That was what they were going for and why it was popular and successful.
  10. I am liking the 66 Batman stuff more with these pics. When is the projected availability date?
  11. Still need the car. Waiting for the car. Gotta have the car now.
  12. Ok I saw there are individual prices for each piece.I like that. More inclined to make a purchase.
