It's confirmed. LEGO #5004590 Batpod by Decool.
To be honest i'm very afraid to log in this google and blog account.. i can't imagine how many unanswered email and comments after a month since my last log in >_<.
My excuse this time? My OnePlus screen shattered to million pieces and my replacement phone don't have LTE (lol). Oh wait, there's more. I was laptopless for a few weeks. In the same month, i sent my macbook to Apple for repair because.. guess what? screen related problem too. :(. On top of that, they also make a diagnosis that the laptop battery need to be replaced :(. cost for all the repair? RM3,169 (about $782). That amount to repair 3 years old laptop is just insane. i could buy a new laptop with that price.. not macbook of course.
Luckily i bought AppleCare+ 3 years ago meaning the laptop is still under warranty, so the repair is FOC!
They made a mistake with the warranty period because i send the unit just a few days before the warranty end but they come out with the diagnosis one day after the warranty end. Phew... $700 repairs FOC. I purchased the extended warranty for about $150. It was definitely worth it. I just hope this machine can last another 3 years.. aha.. Confession time: I'm a cheapskate ;p
Hey, I still have not made any paragraph related to LEGO >_<.. I miss typing and babbling in this blog.
wait.. what? Seriously LEGO #5004590 Batpod? Only 1,000 set made worldwide. lol.. this set cost $192 (RM780) sourced from loose parts and the original with box cost at least $1,600 (RM6,486).
It is real. found this link on aliexpress.
$23.85 for 338++ pieces set is kinda expensive to me. I expect the price will not exceed $20 when more seller have it. but still, $23.85 vs $192 set.. The imitation cost 12% of original set. (again with the numbers huh) you can do many other things with that excess of money.. (^_^)'. Now more people will be able to buy and play with this set.
Hey that's all for now. I gotta do something with those unread emails and comments. I definitely will read all of them and try my best to reply most of it but I would like to apologize in advance if I overlook them.
