I thought the Silvestri one came out really well. It's so different than all the others that it does stand out in a good way. The weathering color looks good in person

Not really.

I agree that the Silvestri Batman was hit and miss. But I chanced it anyway.

And? Don't leave us hanging... how'd yours end up? I can say mine only really looks good from the angle I posted. But that's fine... it looks great in my display.

Mine was great. Except I broke off one of those gauntlet spikes while unboxing. I think they made those out of tissue paper.

The Bisley piece was just as bad.

OMG, that Silvestri Batman looks horrible. I would be pissed off to no end, if i got one like that. I am kind of glad that i passed on it now because of QC problems.

I broke my Eduardo Risso Batman's cape's edge... A book fell on it from the upper shelf of my computer desk... :/ Man, it is painful. It is a quite durable piece though, after such a hit, it only got slightly damaged. I glued it back together and it looks ok but still... It is a damaged statue, now. :/

Mine was good. Not great and not perfect. But the sculpt was good. It was the paint that was defective. I had several white spots here and there on the cape.

I kept it because I figured at a later date I can fix the paint on the cape.

I got fairly lucky with my Silvestri Batman. I'm sure it could be picked at, but it didn't warrant as close an examination as a more expensive larger statue. It's a complicated sculpt for that size, and that combined with DC shutting down its direct operations meant QC wasn't at its peak. But it looks great on the shelf with the other Batman B&W's.
