3 hours of extras never seen before....hmmm.......might have to keep one eye on this collection. Adam West scrapbook...interesting.

It's been decades since seeing these episodes.

have a good night folks.

Holy Cow Batman. $120 bucks for the complete set.[quoted image][quoted image]

This is the set I have, though I payed much less on a sale a couple years ago. The best thing about this edition is the big set of Topps cards it comes with...the same cards used in the pin. So you can use any one you want.

I think it was Amazon, but it was a few years ago. According to camelcamelcamel it was briefly down to $60 in late 2017, and I'm pretty sure that's when I bought it. The regular, non-limited Bluray set that is readily available now is just as good if you want just the show content without the physical extras. The show looks amazing...absolutely awesome restoration.

I picked up this set in 2017 from Barnes and Noble for $76. The box has a button when pushed plays the theme song. I haven't opened the box yet.

If you do and decide you don't want the digital versions of the episodes, shoot me a PM. I like my stuff to be digital and would be interested in purchasing the code.

Pretty sure the digital code has long expired.

#15359 23 days ago

Found a boxed set on EBAY...mint condition. He never opened the dvds, cards. He bought it to look thru all the extras. $60 Bucks shipped.

I am thinking a frame with all the cards mounted.

Is this the DVD set or the Bluray set? You definitely want the bluray set. The 60's TV show was filmed and they scanned the original negatives to make the transfers so the detail and colors are amazing. If you go DVD you lose quite a bit of resolution compared to the DVD. There a DVD only boxset that had some swag that was different than the bluray box set.

Quoted from EightBallTexas:

The discs will play fine. The digital codes are used so you can also stream the show to your phone, tablet, etc. I'm many cases the digital download codes expire a couple years after the release so the codes for this batman set may or may not have expired by now.

#15362 23 days ago
Quoted from EightBallTexas:

Be aware that the cards that come in the bluray boxset are not the full set. It a set of 44 cards from the full set of 143 cards.

If you want the full 143 card set then you need to buy the Topps collection that came out a few years ago. Stern bought a bunch of the Topps sets and that's what they used to put on all the games. 500 of which were signed by Adam West.

The company that was tasked with streaming the digital copy of Batman has gone out of business. So no code works from the old LE set. However, all the Blu-ray DVDs work superbly.

I good example why I still prefer physical media. When I bought the bluray set I sold my digital codes for $60. If I want to watch things on my phone for plane trips or whatever I'll just RIP the discs myself.

Wow; nice pickup for that price!

Also, if anyone is interested, you can stream these restored episodes in all their glory for free (with commercials) on the Roku Channel; I'm working through them myself right now.

#15370 22 days ago

Howdy Folks,

While playing and loving this pin so much I had completed all villains . My question is when the bat signal is flashing in the bottom part of the PF what is the next thing to do. I went up left ramp which was the only thing blinking . What am I missing to continue.

It was not guiding me or talking letting me know the next item to accomplish.

Also................

Do you guys always take the cash or " Continue Game". I did "continue" on a few games but when I take cash its seems to capture major villains.

Thoughts on strategy on these 2 points please.

Thanks.

Shoot up left lane to bat signal in upper Right corner to start villain escape. Continue game is a player option. Big risk, big reward, your call.

#15372 22 days ago

Okay so I did it then...thought I was missing something.

Is the only reward 2x , 3 x etc etc?

Depends on how often you want to gamble....... Love the risk reward code direction on this game. I will say you will see some Awesome animations and points and points if you gamble.

I pretty much ALWAYS continue the major villains until the end. You see way more clips and can get a TON more points. The only time I don't is when its ball 3 and I want the extra ball after beating the second villain.

Quoted from kermit24:

Agree that continuing is almost always the way to go if you want more points. The deeper levels in the villains almost always have more points than the collect. Unless you have some crazy multiplier on the collect shot - then it’s hard to turn down sometimes.

But if you are more interested in the extra ball or getting villain escape - by all means collect and move to the next villain. No shame in that.

eightballtexas Here's a very complete rule sheet with a lot of deep cut knowledge of the rules. Give it a read or use it as reference for anything you're curious about.

Nice! I haven't installed mine yet. How did you secure them? They're hollow and the bottoms dont leave very much room for glue etc. I'm debating on whether to fill them with hot glue to make them more durable.

#15381 22 days ago

I am dong the LED ones coming next week. So cool.

I really wanted the catwomen LED but was way out of my abilities...so she is there with no light but next door are the cats so I am a happy camper.

Yes that is SR with sunglasses on in the extra ball animation on Batman. Think that is one of the best extra ball animations ever, as it will change it up from time to time with different people in the scene as well.

#15392 19 days ago

Had my best game last night. Put in some laundry and figured I'd play a quick game. 3 ball game with 3 extras. I usually turn EBs off, but on a deep game like BM66, I left them on. I reached Villain Escape twice. I played Batusi, Gas Attack and Holy Multiballs. Played Holy Multiball twice. I couldn't miss, it was ridiculous. 24.8 billion. My best score since they nerfed the Shame exploit. Every time I think about trading the game, I put up a monster score. It doesn't want to leave.

Even with how well done the software is, there is a clear path to huge scores. My first minor villain is always Bookworm because he allows all minor villain perks to remain for the whole game. Then I choose Freeze, as he freezes my timers. Then for my first season 3 minor, I usually grab a Tut or Egghead. My Batman is set mean, so the ideal stack doesn't happen always. Ideally, you want to get Bookwork and Freeze completed/jailed on ball 1 so you benefit the most from their perks. Then, when you start your Bat-Turn and any other timed modes, you aren't timed. I also choose to jail the major villains after level 1 on the first go around to get to Villain Escape quicker, but that is me. The way I was dialed in to my ramps and orbits, I'm sure I could've combo'd my way to a way bigger score if I had continued on some of them.

I hate this strategy because it's one dimensional. It's cool when you can pull it off and you want to restart the game when you fail at it. But, I absolutely love the theme of the game and how other parts of it are programmed.
