It was very funny to build it. The Tank is ok. The Blue Batman ist beautiful like Bane. But I am a little bit dissapointed about Riddlers Hideout...

I liked the prototype more than the original one. Lets hope for new Batman Sets 2008 with more buildings and new minifigs.

Cool! Thanks for sharing. I like the bane minifigure. I agree with you that the prototype is better 'cause I like bases and not vechicles. Oh well, the tank is cool anyhows.

I shall not buy this because I don't like the Battank, but the minifigs are nice. If they put a Riddlers hideout in it onstead of a battank, I would think different about it.

Wow, that Bane is really cool. I'm definitely going to get this, but not for a while. I'm spent up for the moment, after a trip to Manchester the other day.

The blue Bat is nice as always, and the Bat-Tank is a bit  >:-) . But I will MOD the bike. I'll probably change it so it's just a normal dirt bike, rather than the weapons trike.

And I love the second panel of the comic. Or more specifically, I love Bane in the second panel of the comic.

Actually, I couldn't have bought this tday from TRU whether I had the money or not. It wasn't there. Neither was the Castle line, or the Batcopter.
Yep, I'm back! Be afraid...

Wow.  That is actually a humongous set.  Could you give us more detailed pictures?

I wished for a review before purchasing this or the tie crawler. Great review. A great addition to the separatist arsenal.

Thanks for the review, the tnak and base look nice.

You could use Bane's torso for a Strong Mad fig [from Homestar Runner]. Just get rid of the tank in the back.
