    If “Batman has legs”, then “whose got short shorts”?

    It’s nice they added legs, but I really think PMB’s original figure set looks much more like Adam and Burt, the detail and paintwork were better and they look less “toy-like”. This second set just doesn’t look as good IMHO (I am biased… I have a 1st-Gen set gracing my Elite), and Burt looks bigger then Adam…. something anyone knows was NOT the case in real life! LOL

    Hey BATSARGE619,

    How did you get PMB’s original figure set to fit into your Elte without breaking them? If you could please send me a response to rsalinas91@gmail.com

    Thanks!

    Guys, I have to tell you in all seriousness, that everyone who has seen these IN PERSON has been blown away by them. The flesh tones, the sizing and the detail work are really nice up close. Robin is smaller than Batman (this is a bad photo) and they are the right scale for the car. I like both our sets for different reasons but these are very cool

    Also – I’ve never had an issue fitting the Gen 1 figures into any of the cars, but the best place to ask questions about fit etc. is on the Message Board. I guarantee that if you post your question about figures there that it will get a speedy answer and people there can help you out in detail.

    Like he said, there really is no issue fitting the first-gens into the car. I didn’t have to do any modifications, just some easy mauevering of Adam under the wheel. Burt is just “drop right in”.

    I DO like the multi-point articulation on the second-gens.. makes for multiple pose possibilities. Sorry Tim, wasn’t trying to turn anyone off to the second-gens… and you’re absolutely right…not fair of me to judge them on that photo alone. It’s just that I LOVE my first-gens so much!

    I just received my painted 2nd gen. 1/18th figs. “Holy $%!#balls, Batman!!” I love ’em! Hope I can pull off one of the fixes to seat Adam in there–can’t wait for the PDF.
