Yeah, I'm definitely getting the Tumbler, and the (just announced) Batpod. I also pre-ordered the '89 Batmobile through BigBadToystore.com - it isn't due until next June, though, and you can cancel anytime up to when it ships without paying a penalty. My biggest problem (after scraping up the cash!) is going to be finding room for them !
If I have to choose just one, though, it'll probably be the Tumbler, though. As cool as the '89 Batmobile is, I like the Nolan/Bale films a lot more.
I once owned the original Mark III release, along with the original Mark I & II, but sold them. When I started collecting again, I was afraid I'd have to pay huge prices to reacquire them, but thankfully, they've all been re-issued or announced as upcoming. I was able to get the Battle-Damaged Mark III (Sideshow Exclusive with the crushed helmet from the battle with Iron Monger) for a decent price last year. And then they re-issued the Mark II (Armor Unleashed version), they announced the Mark IV with the suit-up gantry, and finally Mark I version 2.0 (later in the year, with an improved Tony Stark sculpt). I got on a waitlist last year for the Sideshow Exclusive IM2 Mark VI (with extra forearm gauntlet) and it converted, and the Mark V is still easy to pick up inexpensively.I picked up a Tony Sculpt, along with the sunglasses, donut and donut box that came with the Mark IV (the re-issued Mark IV w/gantry won't have the glasses or donut) for $55 shipped off ebay.
I wasn't initially interested in the limited Mark VI re-release from Sideshow, but $161 shipped (using rewards points) was too good to pass up. Of course, there'll be a Mark VII announced in the near future as well!
