Merry Christmas, all! I had quite a "Batmas"...I got three Batman graphic novels, a Batman DCD figure and a Bat-cracker (Batman nutcracker). Oh, and a bat-symbol t-shirt.

Just curious what people's thoughts are...for me, it's a tough call. I have to go with the black-gray repaint for the modern, quasi-realistic look and color scheme, but the DCUC Bats is a very, very close second.

Same here, I don't have the DCUC version but I really like the Black repaint and that is the one that will remain on my shelf. :D

i gotta say S3 blue/gray. the gray on S7 is way too light. attack armor comes in as a close second, mainly cuz i havent found him yet.

DCUC is the classic version I grew up with.

Voted Series 1. I got a ton of Batmen now but for some reason, this one still appeals the most to me.

Black n' Grey repaint, the blue caped one was okay, but with those colors I'd just as soon go with the DCUC version.

This poll makes me wonder why Mattel hasn't re-packed in that Bat Signal accesory somehow. I would buy a pink and purple Batman if it ment getting that thing.

The DCUC series 1 Bats is my favorite right now. Perfect representation of my favorite era of Batman.

Next on the list would be the Attack Armor Batman and the DC Superheroes Series 7 black and grey Batman. Can't give either of those the top prize as I had to put Hush heads on both of 'em to make them look right (to me anyway).

DCUC wins out for me though. Just an awesome figure. My only wish is that I could put a cloth cape of some sort on an extra one of them for a little more freedom of movement and so he could get in the Batmobile. Here's a Batman display I put together a bit ago and snapped a pic of...

Attack Armor Batman is my favorite. The head is slightly undersized, but I absolutely love the style of that figure. Zipline Bats is a close second though. I really enjoyed what Mattel did with the mostly cloth capes in the earlier Batman line. It's too bad they went away from them with DCSH.

I was never able to get the Attack Armor or Batsignal figures; anyone know where to find those? I'm afraid I know ebay will be the answer... :?

Good luck...I rarely see them even on eBay. Thank goodness for the DCSH8 and DCUC Bats...

Not sure what you might be referring to as I haven't repainted any of the figs...but thanks!

As for the attack armor bats, I did get mine from ebay. It took a long time of checking just about every day until one popped up. Cost me 25 i think, but well worth it after I tore his tiny noggin off and put a hush head on there. My favorite batman until the DCUC fig arrived. I've checked ebay often to try to get another, but have come up empty for a long time now. Afraid the well has dried up significantly on those.

FYI, I just ran a search on ebay and somebody has one listed right now. Buy it now for 90 bucks!! That's fairly ridiculous, but there he is!
