Above one is from Bandai. Tim said that's the most accurate one.

I got one last Tuesday but it's not production. The colors are a bit off on the copper areas so WB rejected it. I'll snap off some pics tonight and send them off to Jack. The front wheels do look a bit large and don't turn. The canopy slides back about halfway and so does the windshield. Batman could not get out of this car. The interior looks really good but this model has no decals/paint inside. I talked to engineering about all of this along with other issues it has and the main problem was lack of reference at the time. Remember, when I did the 1989 car there were built cars sitting around, people that built the cars (sitting around), and plenty of images/pics of the final film. When prototyping began on the 1/18 Tumbler the full-size cars were just getting built and the blueprints/files from WB sucked! Trust me, I was there. I was hoping they could do the best they could after I left but some things just didn't go right. When I send my buddy pics now from Toronto or other Tumbler photo areas, he sends me the "thanks a lot but waaaay too late" remarks. It always pays to do a collectable at least a year after a film is out to collect proper information. I'll also shoot it next to the 89 for scale reference. I'm guessing again and I haven't done the numbers but it looks like they at LEAST kept that odd ball 1989 scale.

The ebay one: This auction is a pre-sell only. Item is to be in stock in August 2005.

They still need final approval from WB so even that date might be off a bit.
