A little batpod & case info

"Ok, the movie is a 5 star, this is a little info on the case and bat pod if anyone is curious about it size. We have it at work and I have already seen it. It is actually VERY small, the case and the bat pod. The bat pod is maybe 4"-5" long, and the case is just a bit larger then the blu rays. I was expecting a bat pod the size of the one available at in the toys at most stores which is 10"-12" long.
AT $50+ dollars, I would get the Bluray 2 disc and the $20 12" bat pod, which s a much better bat pod and value in my opinion."
Wished I read the other ONE STAR reviews. Perhaps you will!

"The film and the BD deserve 5 stars.
Unless you are a serious collector who won't open the package, buy the regular BD or DVD. I fully expected to get a normally packaged BD along with a nice collectible. Not at all so. I had to destroy any collectible value the item had to see the film. Since there is no BD case to speak of, the whole thing just sits atop a 7' bookcase becoming something else to dust. I prefer to keep it out of sight since it is so cheap. Oh well.
Like others who rated this item ONE STAR, I'm only trying to help future buyers to be informed before they make their purchase."
Good Movie Not So Good Deal

"First off this is a review of this particular special edition not of the movie, which I thought was great.
While the case looked okay in the picture, I had assumed that this movie would also come with a normal blu ray case (keeping a little batpod with all your Blu Ray movies isn't a great option in many setups).
That said, I wouldn't have minded it if the batpod seemed to be of decent quality -- either durable plastic or metal. Instead I got a very cheap poorly painted flimsy plastic model. Apply any pressure to any part of this model and it will just bend. I wasn't expecting a super high quality model, but at $50 I was expecting something that I wouldn't be embarrassed to stick by my TV and blu ray player.
Oh and the digital copy comes in a separate cardboard insert (I'm not sure where you are supposed to store this).
All said, save yourself the money and buy the normal blu ray edition with the same bonus discs. You can still probably come out ahead if you bought a bat pod toy separate, and it would be better quality than the one that came with this.
My best comparison would be a $5 do it yourself model where you snap the plastic pieces out of sheets and stick them together, along with an average paint job.
Definitely not worth close to $50"
