Well Mattel tried to release him, but when they tested to see if he was lead infected he had to be cancelled, ;)

What does TRU charge for it?
Up here I've seen them for $18, too much IMO.

Just picked one up at TRU on clearance for $12.99. A little Magic Sculpt and paint to the lower chin and he's fine as the new Batbot.

But I prefer the older design.

It was released only in Europe (the cartoon accurate colours one, that is).

I saw a couple of the blue Batbots in Woolworths today. They were £12.99 ($26.50) I think, which sounds like they are more expensive here in the UK than they are in the States. But if anyone wants me to pick them one up let me know.

EDIT:

Here are pics of the figures I saw in Woolworths. I thought they were the Batbots you guys were talking about, but I was mistaken.

Yeah, Heres my story on trying to get the batbot.
First, I order it off amazon/etoys paying about $6 more than I would have if I had found it at walmart. Then I finally get it and its the wrong figure. Amazon got the names and pics mixed up. They had the batbot pic under the electric armor name. I got the electric armor one. So Now I ordered the disklauncher batman with the electric armor pic hoping I get the right thing. Gonna end up returning something which sucks condsidering I might not get all the money I spent on it back.
And then guess what happens after I go through all that. My walmart gets more in. Really made me mad. Id return both if I knew I could get my money back, but the website says they might not refund my shipping. So even if I did return both and buy it at walmart id end up spending the same amount. IT really sucks.

Well my CORRECT batbot came in today. Now I have to return stuff. IM thinking if walmart puts some on sale I might get another just to see what coloring in the mouth piece would look like.

The one named "Twin Blasters Batman" is the new show accurate batbot. Its been out for sometime now so you might have a little trouble finding one. But my walmart just got a new shipment in (refer to my last post) so I might not be that bad.

Its a really awesome figure. My only problem is the head. It, at the least, doesn't go down into the body deep enough. But i guess I can live with it until maybe a more accurate one comes out. Just really wanted a batbot.
What makes me mad though is the pic on the back of the package has a show accurate head, so I'm wondering what happened between that model and what we got.
