I'm a little disappointed with the WB Shop for two reasons:

1) My WB Shop edition isn't scheduled to arrive until 12/12; 8 days after the movie originally released

2) I ordered two and they are coming in the same shipment and that shipment was rated at just 1lb; that means that each set has to weigh less then 8 oucnes; most likely closer to 5 or 6 ounces a piece to count for packing materials.

I'm going to be surprised if this is anything but happy meal quality.

But... they were cheap enough.

Did you get an e-mail with a tracking number? If you did, and assuming your shipment has been picked up by UPS then you can go to the UPS website and enter the tracking number and get an estimate.

FWIW these are shipping from Lansing, MI.

The real tragedy of the movie is they didnt get that french chick to show her cans those things looked frigging huge in that scene at Wayne Manor after they were caught in the rain.


They were probably just trying to keep the film kid friendly.

You find any pictures of what the set looks like? I really hope it's not a standard blu with some cheap happy meal quality toys.


From what I read on another forum that's exactly what it is. It's just the standard Blu-ray with the figures. There is no box for the entire package even. The figures are separately packed from the Blu-ray. This turned to be a huge disappointment.

If you're quoting the post the guy made on bluray.com's forum, I interpreted him saying that it was a letdown compared to the likes of other exclusives such as Inception briefcase, etc. I don't think he actually bought the set because he thought it LOOKED like cheap happy meal toys.

As far as I can tell, NO ONE has any solid info, pics, or anything regarding WB's edition besides the stock photo we've all seen.

I would love it if they were keeping it all hush hush that way when we got it, we would be super impressed.

On the contrary, happy meal quality or not...people are still gonna pay lots of money (at least double the $30 I paid) simply because of it being OOP.

Yeah, Marion Cotillard is French so she's naked in just about everything else she's done lol. I'm a bit "meh" when it comes to a lot of French films but I highly recommend Holy Motors from this year. Marion isn't in this one, but it is still one of my favorite films of the year.

I agree except people aren't going to be willing to pay anything significant for this set if it is just the standard blu-ray/dvd combo that is selling for $18 and some random hasbro toys that could be purchased at Toys R US just thrown in a box. The only way this will have resale value is if something is exclusive.

wow so disappointed with the WB shop order, the 3 figures come loose

its just the regular blu ray version amazon has for $18 and then the 3 figures are separate in happy meal type plastic, dont get your hopes up

im going to try to sell the figures on ebay, not worth keeping them

That's unfortunate. I wonder why WB Shop decided to limit production to 1,000?

As far as I can tell nothing is numbered and the toys didn't look like they were anything special.

Oh well.

Wowww...... Just opened mine as well. What an UTTER disappointment. To think I could've preordered the Cowl edition for probably less money and that's the one that was going to sell like hot cake on ebay...


Time to make an auction and hope someone is stupid enough to buy..

Haha... the only saving grace may be that the plastic says "TDKR Premium" on the plastic of the toys.

I wonder if I'll get a full refund if I refuse my package. I already have a personal copy to watch and I bought this strictly to collect or resell and it seems pretty useless for either of those.

Yea.... For some reason my order slip in my box says I paid $37.05...when in reality it was $32.05 because I had free shipping. Maybe I'll just return it and ill get the whole amount I spent back...that $5 being a loss on them, since they so stupidly made one of the worst limited editions ever.

I half-expected it to be something like this, but at the same time I was hoping they'd make a package like these since it appears to have the same figures:

Even though it doesn't come in any packaging (Really WB?), the figures themselves look much, much better than what you can buy at Target or Toys R Us. Much more movie accurate at least. So collectors still may buy the figures just for that aspect and you can make your money back that way....

EDIT: Looks like they're just mini statues with no articulation either. That really sucks.

Lol, that is some fucked up bullshit. Those figures are undoubtedly not limited to 1k a piece; the only thing that was "limited" was that WB shop would only be selling 1,000 bundles of the movie combo and these happy meal toys together...at least in this go round. I would definitely sell them on eBay posthaste, and if there's an entry for this "bundle" on amazon, you might as well throw it up there as well with some ridiculous asking price.

SPLASH!

I guess it's smart on Warners part, put a sticker numbering the sets to ensure they sell out and don't go on clearance like the Bat Pod. If this was made much better or I wish it was a stand with the cracked mask it would have been so much better. If there is one thing I've learned movie aficionados are more OCD than gamers!!!!
