I think I prefer getting Batman and his rogues as separate 1/6th scale statues (that way I can choose who to collect in the rogue gallery). Not bad looking piece, but it has some flaws and I find it too pricey for it.

Thatís the thing. This piece is really for the more hardcore Batman fan as it offers something thatíll likely never be replicated in this scale. If, and itís a BIG if, you ever see all these rogues sold as separate 1:6 scale pieces itíll be many, many years from now. Only one company out there that might even tackle it and thatís Tweeterhead. That being said I still wouldnít put money on seeing Man-Bat and/or Clayface. So for the more casual collector that would rather pick and choose rogues like yourself I get being turned off by the price tag. For me however getting 12 characters for roughly $215 a piece (even though some arenít full renderings) is a reasonable price. Not to mention the footprint thisíll require is much more space friendly than having them all displayed individually.

The biggest flaw I see from this piece is the lack of Riddler (and for me, inclusion of man-bat and clayface). I also find some of the individual sculpt to be weak (catwoman and poison ivy), which I think is due to the painter/sculptor having to work on many characters all at once. As separate statues, it may take longer to collect them, but the company will make each of them with same amount of detail and focus, which I think the Bat rogues deserve. If Tweeterhead is the only one, then so be it.

These (subjective) flaws make the price really hard to swallow. Everyone has different standards, so I guess this just doesn’t meet up to mine. That being said, I am really glad for those who love this and excited for this though. This is something new that has never been done by other companies. And XM deserves praise for this.

This piece looks spectacular and is by and large a statement piece for DC fans. Pieces like this don't come along every day and it's a fantastic opportunity to own Bats and the majority of his rogue gallery all in one expertly crafted piece.

I have been keeping my eye on the progress of this piece for quite some time and I really like what I am seeing in these latest pics. I don't see another piece of this caliber that includes all of the characters we see here along with Bats coming along any time soon if ever and I think for what we are getting here the price is fair.

I couldn't agree more Hellboy. I had briefly considered jumping into XM's 1:6 scale DC line but quickly realized to get all the pieces I wanted assuming they made them would be too costly and take up too much display space in my collection. This piece is the perfect solution for me.
