Is this…thing a repainted Man-Bat?

  • Like any great bootleg, it's clearly influenced by Man-Bat and borrows heavily from the original design. Personally, I'm waaaaaay more interested in the artwork than the figure itself!

  • @ Ben: The artwork does have an awesome, psychedelic 1960s/1970s vibe to it…you just know, thirty years from now, this packaging art from some obscure Mexican artist will be the subject of an exhibition at the MoMA and dozens of art history papers.

  • More weird is the shipping time and price!

    $10 for Mexican Air Mail that will take 45-55 days with no insurance.

    $55 for three day UPS.

    Why in the name of God would it take 55 days?

  • @ Andrew Davis:

    Because that's how long it takes to teach a Donkey how to fly.

    Now step aside folks, because this awesome item will be mine!!

    (or not…)

  • I don't think it's repainted so much as someone bootlegged the original mold but the original figure was definitely the BTAS Man-Bat. Looks like it lost some of the articulation in the process though. The original had ball shoulders and hinge elbows.

    Gotta love the obvious scam shipping.

  • Looks like the joints aren't there. I loved that man bat figure, I'd recognize it anywhere.
