According to toyskingdom,

●●●● TakaraTomy 08年1-3月 新商品清單 ●●●●
CG Girl (1:6 Action Figure)
2月21日: 再販 Batman Begins in CG 16800Yen


We now have another chance to pick up this awesome figure!











Fellow collectors who'll be picking this fig up, do start hunting for a business suit for Bruce.



The reissue will bring the mad prices of this figure down, as well as piss off fellow collectors who bought it at ridiculous prices.

This figure is good enough for me to take a second shot at it.

Check out Michael Crawford's review here.

Pre-order available here.

    Ahhhh, I'm excited about the re-release but I'm terribly disappointed because I just bought one on Ebay just a week ago. Oh well, at least I can enjoy my Tak Batman for 3-4 months without feeling too bad until February rolls around (Although I will definitely get a second batman! :D)

    Thanks for the pre-order link Shaun! I've used Hobby Search before and they are pretty reliable in my experience. I don't think they even enforce the pre-order cancellation fee.

  1. Hey Shaun!

    Man, too cool...would it kill Texas to carry some of these things? Apparently so since I never see it ever! How much would that run?

    Would you suggest buying from the pre-order link u gave or buy from local retailer when they bring him in?

    Do you know what the estimated shipping will be?

  1. Shaun says:

    chin up imnewhere, enjoy your tak bats till you get your second set. :)

    glad the link helps. Do you happen to live in the US, if so, you could advise Mike on the shipping cost?

    Hey mike, your best best would be to get it online from US sites actually.

    Shin, buy from local shops. Hangar should bring this in. The first version was S$280. Hope it helps.

    I'm not a great fan of Batman but my god, Takara's Batman is awesome!

    I do like the Joker though, and hopefully someone will make a figure outta him.Imagine having the two of them side by side.

    Hey Mike, The last time I bought a 1/6 figure with similar weight and size of Takara Batman, EMS shipping was $34 to the US. Specifically, California.

    They didn't give me the total shipping cost until they processed the item to ship.

  1. Man...$280 for the item plus $34 to ship it? I need some lottery numbers lol...guess I will have to enjoy it here at Shaun's House'a'Toys =)

    I picked up a Cyclops for like $5 a while back...put him on my site recently.

    hey mike, its $280 in Singapore dollars, the last time we had it. Based on this currency converter, its about US$145 before shipping.

    imnewhere, thanks for advisin mike on the shipping cost.

    Fellow Singaporean collectors, I've received word that local speciality stores will be bringing this in.

  1. well monkey's gf just got this yummy item for monkey just a few days ago. monkey believe she must have spent at least 450sgd on it. ouch!.
