But for a 1/4 scale version, I'd go with this one to be converted...



Jim Lee Batman from Hush
Yeah, I would much prefer that. A nice balance between straight up and down like the B&W and completely hunched over like the P1 Hush.

Holy crap!! Was offered $15 off from Silvestri Batman at SS, and just impulse buyed it. I have 94 of these so far, and was gonna wait on this guy because of the reports. Am also paying down other orders. This is why you don't have drinks and go on Sideshow at night. Will let you know how he turns out.

I ordered 2 from BBTS, sent them an email with these 2 photos, waiting for reply. Not really sure I even want to try getting a replacement. One has missing pinky (Piece not in box) and other fingers are cracked. The second one has arm/hand not resting on arm of chair.

Still not as awesome as this one that's missing the entire lower body.

Yeah that one is hard to believe that it left the factory like that, it's a 1 piece statue so it's not like it's 2 pieces and they just forgot to put it in the box!

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Great sculpt, but that production run should have ended up on the scrap heap. The Batman B&W are on a poor production quality streak for sure. I remember back in the Bowen days he would refuse poor quality runs and move to a new factory if needed. Not sure why DC can’t find a good factory.

My Silvestri came in today. There is resin build up on the insides right ear, paint chips, glue smears, and his right hand is slightly floating over the right arm rest, it still looks good, but do I request a replacement from SS? Iím not sure Iíll get a better one.

I would probably order another one and keep the better one. The ear on yours would annoy me, the other stuff isn't too bad.
BBTS offered me to exchange or return, not really sure what I want to do with this production disaster!

I'm in the same boat. I don't want to risk getting one that's worse. I'm not sure how long a window I'll have if I get Sideshow to send me a replacement, and even be able to compare them.
