    It's cool but it sure is an awkward one.

    Y'know these display cases many of you guys have for it, such as from sora shop - do they provide UV protection? I'm trying to assess if I can put my Batmobile somewhere other than my display room but anywhere else I might put it will probably catch direct sunlight.

    Agreed. Budgetary restrictions aside, the only way I'd consider something that big would be if I had a man cave akin to Darth Dennis's, and then only if I had a place to hang it similar to how he has his Millennium Falcon.

    Wow, did not know about that! Fantastic project! But wow 2 K... After I can completely understand that price because it is a very limited run, without nothing in common with any industrialization process of a classic factory. But 2K...
    What a pity that HT did not produced it back to the other 89 releases. At 800-1000?, I could have been tempted but 2K...

    But once again fantastic project!

    I pay $100 per month. I do not have a collection room. I do have a six foot section of wall picked out to hang the Batwing vertically.

    Add me to the list. Picked up a slightly scratched one from a local selling for below retail several years ago. Currently sitting in shield mode in my collection room, I should just take the cover off.

    I'd do some very careful research regarding that. I know that plain glass at least blocks the majority of UVB, but not sure about UVA or any other wavelengths that would damage plastics, pain etc. over time. I imagine heat plays a role too. There are archival coatings applied to some plastics and glass for framing prints, but I have a vague memory of a framer telling me at one point that they could only do so much, i.e. if in the path of direct sunlight or whatever. I'm guessing that plain acrylic cases do nothing but block dust.

    See...I actually have a large room I use as a studio that has plenty of room for the thing, but the non-geek part of me doesn't want to commit to that from an interior design perspective.

    So tempting though...

    Thanks ZE. So it might take damage in direct sunlight no matter what protection I pay for. I'll have another look to see if there's any wall that doesn't get blasted at some point during the day.
