Recently, there are very good reviews of Hot Toys Bat-pod version 2. The paint job is much better than the older one. For those who will be getting their new Bat-pod, here are some pictures of the version 1 (year 2008) Bat-pod.
The colour for the old version seems darker whereas the new one has lighter silver tone, which is more movie accurate.
I realised that the adjustable cape that came along with version 1 has been replace by a wavy plastic shape that is suppose to goes under the cape. (see link: http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/forums/showthread.php?t=111302&page=67)
The lights still works and 2xAAA batteries are needed.
