I guess I shouldn't bother even checking TRU then!

I think the idea in the new one is better, and it looks quite a bit more like Batman from the side, but from the front the ears look too wide...I prefer the old one from the front.

I think I'd have to say the old one. I like the exaggerated ears. It feels more like LEGO doing their own spin on Batman rather than trying to look as exact as possible.

I guess it's kind of similar to how I always preferred LEGO accessories that were oversized compared to the minifigure (i.e. I prefer the old wrench to the newer, smaller, weaker utilities). That said, if they permanently replaced the old one with this newer one I wouldn't be upset or anything. They both look good to me.

:thumbup:  I completely agree with you. I like one strictly from the front and one strictly from the side.

I bought two there last month.  Pointed them out to a disappointed father/son team who had just price checked the $50 Batjet; they were excited to find an affordable Batman.  Later gave one of my two sets to a kid I know (he was thrilled).  I left the bin filled with sets for others to enjoy.  

This Batman looks great next to my blue version from the Catcycle set.

I'd have to say I like both the new and old versions. I'm slowly collecting each Batman so will have plenty of both shortly!

I went there hoping to at least find the 2 I needed,I needed the cowl/cape for some custom Batmans and the $5.00 price can't be beat,searched the whole section and only found those 3,like I said someone had ripped one open and only taken the cowl and the cape,some people are just too damn cheap!

Nice comparison, 'AlexScammer'! :sweet:
I actually picked up my copy of this set on Friday. The new mask is far more superior! :thumbup:

Thanks for the info and the comparison. I think the new one is a big improvement and looks a lot more realistic/movie like  :thumbup:

I prefer the new one though it is a shame that the eyes aren't aligned with the mask.

My toys r Us was stocked on these jetski's promo's last weekend, but I went yesterday and they were sold out.  I didn't know Columbus GA was a hotspot for Lego's, I'm glad I got Four of them last weekend though, I love the new head by the way.

did you go to the toys r us in Pinole? I work there and saw a guy buy a bunch of those. He mentioned them being hard to find.

EDIT: never mind, I see you're in Florida. Illiteracy is a big problem, kids.

From the side, the old one looks more cartoony and (literally) big-headed. I prefer the new one.  :classic:

It looks like the new cowl just got a lot less exclusive... I got one with the Two Face chase set and the eyes align perfectly with one side of the head, but the grinning one still shows a bit of the black lining. Don't know if this only counts for Europe or if they will ship the new cowl in US sets from now aswell.

It's even been found in blue.
