That was the first thing I thought of when you mentioned this set!

‘89 Batmobile finished. Bit of a frustrating build. One of those situations where a piece turns out to be slightly out of alignment—-twenty steps later.

After much singing and dancing, that lifesize triceratops is finally ready for delivery. By which they mean bringing it to my house. But not unloading it from the truck. So I have to find a forklift and and operator—and no one I’ve called provides both!

The company also suggests the alternative of hiring 6 or 8 strong guys

After multiple—and contradictory*—back-and-forths with the company, over several months, this morning I decided to CANCEL the triceratops.

Makes me sad, but let’s see how THIS goes!

* Including contradicting their own website!

Thanks, Brian. A definite pain where I sit!

Their website says they charge 25% for “returns”. I wonder if they’ll try to #%*@ me with that!

Seems like it would've been less of a hassle to try to acquire a real Triceratops. Why sell something so neat for what has to be a limited market of buyers with so much difficulty?
