I think it can be found a little cheaper but an awesome statue. One just ended on ebay for 189.99 with free shipping.

Not even worth 195? Seriously, I can get it for that price.

I paid $150 for mine on ebay and honestly as huge a Batman fan as I am that's all I'd pay again. I'm just not a fan of the face sculpt but it's still a nice piece.

I am a colossal Batman fan. I love it. It fits in well with the Sideshow PFs. A lot of people hate it, but I aint one of them. Its nice. The Superman reeks though. Stay away from that one. Its absolutely anorexic! Batman rocks. there's a Wonder Woamn coming soon that looks good also. But Im outta room.

This is a great statue, I know it has sold out, but you may still be able to find it for a little cheaper than $300. I preordered mine when the statue first came out and had actually bought 2 and sold one on Ebay. I don't know what the going price is right now, but I would say spend a little time price shopping and then commit to getting it. It's very much worth it and looks much better in person (the photos don't do it enough justice). This was my first 1/4 scale statue and I have purchased 20 more since (all 20 are Sideshow PFs) and I have displayed Batman with them since. He displays perfectly with my Sideshow PFs, which in particular I've diplayed him next to my Captain America PF Ex most of the time.

I have seen it up close and it's a Very Cool Batman Statue and I will be picking him up next Tuesday for $147.50 +Tax at my Local Comic Shop. The owner said I could have it for half price which was $295.00, He's buying a life size Ironman from the movie and wants to get rid of some of his Statues that have been collecting dust in the store, I could not refuse a deal like that. I'll post some pic's

I have one and really like it too. I think he looks really good standing next to my PF Captain America. I did notice when dusting the other day that the bat symbol on his chest is loose at the bottom point like it is coming unglued. I think they should have put it on the same way Sideshow did the spider on Spider-Man's back.

By the way, is this the only 1/4 scale Batman out there?

Only official one, there might be an unlicensed kit or something out there.

The statue is awesome. I got mine for FREE!!!! I won it in a contest a few months back from HMV and the Silversnail here in Canada. It is massive, but is a great representation of the character. I think I'd pay about $200 for it.

Beyond a Custom, this is the only mixed media 1/4 scale Bats out there. It's not bad, just not great and the price is a killer ...

For that price I would have got it.

If anyone seeing this kind of deal again, can you please hit me up.

THank you.

i love this piece. one of my best stats since it is so hard to find a massive Batman statue out there.. if you can get this for $200, go for it ;)

Other than the face, I think it looks real good. Definetly worth $200, IMO.

Unless it is damaged, dirty or soiled... you probably won't find it for $200.

Looks that way I have seen like 5 with spots on the chest ... as well as small pinholes around the emblem.

I just picked this up during Preview Night for the Phoenix Comic-con. It's in mint condition....no issues at all.

Got if for $130...it's a sweet statue.

Hard Times call for Desperate Measures, so some people are dumping their collectibles for far less than what they paid. Me, i'm constantly trying to consolidate my action figure collection :gah:

Wow that's a hell of a deal, congrats. It's an impressive statue for sure especially after you unfurl his cape which is pretty impressive in length. This is one of my favorite pieces in my collection.

I've noticed the bat symbol on the chest is coming up a little on mine. Would it be better to just let it alone and hope it doesn't get worse, or should I attempt to glue it down?

Silent December

I don't see why a fabric safe adhesive wouldn't work on it, hot glue gun possibly?

I've seen the price skyrocketing on this piece. It was reasonably priced for a long long time, but in recent months I've seen it going for $500 or more.
