We picked up ours last week. Production quality is excellent, and detailing is VERY impressive.
Operation is intuitive, and it takes a bit of practice to get used to it's speed.
Some people will complain because of the lack of an included remote control, but because of the augmented reality on tablets and phones, this would have easily added 50% more to the price. (It broadcasts it's own wifi which you connect to.)
Its an excellent display item, and when you consider Hot Toys items similar size for hundreds more, including the rc functions in this are a jaw dropping value.
I didn't rate this a full 5 stars for a few reasons:
In the prototype video, they showed full read working suspension... on the final product, they went with a solid less accurate back end... I'm guessing to reduce production costs, but also to improve the reliability of the rear smoke system.
The description lists streaming, and these days we assume that means live streaming, however this does not live stream. it means streaming the video from the car to your phone screen, so that was a let down.
Another missing app feature is saving the video from the car.. fortunately there are other apps you can install that will record it for you.
Another issue with the app, is the animated overlays of the guns and canon firing are superimposed on top of the camera feed... but if the canopy is on and closed (Which you really want for appearance.) the animations overlay inside of the cockpit! Hopefully they will update the app with an option that has the overlay clipped if you have the cockpit on and closed.
The manual lists adjusting steering as being in the app, however its no where to be found... I'm calling Mattel today to find out how to adjust it, because ours has more left turn than right..
The included Batman figure has loose joints on his arms to allow for the "controlling the car" appearance which works great, but they went cheap on his paint details... the standard figure its based from looks tons better.
Even with these nits, this is easily one of the best Batmobiles in my collection, and if you have any interest in this, get one before they are gone!
While this would make a really fun toy under the tree for kids at Christmas, Its too fast and large for indoor use, I think, and considering the price, I'm not sure if its a good toy value for kids, but it is excellent for collectors. (They do make a slightly smaller non RC version of this for about $60 that might be a better value purchase for kids.)
