Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Ooof, okay that's rough...

I've always been a Batman purist, so I've always preferred the classic costume...but since you can't get the EX for GL and the Hat is probably my preferred look over the hood...man that's tough.

It basically comes down to which character you like better, for me that's always Batman...so Batman.

There's tons of Batmans, this is not the best one. You'll have other chances to grab one. This is a nice green arrow and maybe your only shot at him.
Also, I'm not a fan of plate bases, even if the gargoyle base is nice on top of it. Just my .02

It sounds to me from your description of both statues that you are leaning toward Green Arrow.

There are a ton of Batman piece to choose from, so unless you really feel like you need this one, I would go with Green Arrow as well.

Green Arrow. Who knows if or when he’ll ever get made again.

That is a very tough choice.

I'd have to say Green Arrow while you can still get him at retail and because there may not be another Green Arrow for a long time if ever.

Also, those New 52 have almost all been in stock and on sale for a while so who knows, you may end up being able to get both in the end.

Glad I don't have to make that choice, I have the EX Green Arrow and I'm half way through may payment plan on P1 Batman. I think these two and Wonder Woman are some of the best 1/4 DC pieces around.

Good luck!

GA all day. IMO, it's a far superior sculpt. There's plenty of Batman statues to choose from (and plenty more to come), but the GA PF looks phenomenal and we probably won't be seeing another one any time soon. And even if we do, what are the odds it'll look better than this amazing PF? I'd say the odds are very slim.

I love how P1 flawlessly brought the New 52 Batman to statue form, but I'm not a fan of the pose even though it has some good angles. Actually, having said that, I think it would go well with the new SS Superman.

On the other hand SS knocked everything out the park with GA. Even if the EX was never revealed, I'm pretty sure I'd have bit the bullet on him - and loved it.

For my personal taste, I'd go GA because it's as close to a 10/10 as you can get. Maybe wait for the EX to be available on secondary market? And I'll continue my wait for a good Batman PF to show up.

The GA is my only DC statue and I've never even read anything with him in it
