you look at the 2 versions (top ridge, no top ridge), the no top ridge actually
had phillips screws behind the batcopter stickers, instead of rivets, whilst
the ridge top one was riveted behind the batcopter stickers. I've never been
a fan of the batcopter myself, and i was told this by Darren. So, me being
curious, i bought a few old battered batcopters to see if this was true, and
it was!!. Whilst the tail was still riveted, it was possible to go inside
the batcopter and change the glass and untangle the rope. As long as you have
a batcopter with the tail rotor and the top rotors ok, its possible to construct
a complete batcopter again with little fuss. All you have to do at the end
is just replace the decals, which i think they do sell on ebay now. I managed
to construct a very good condition batcopter out of 3 very damaged ones. I
still have that on display now, as my original ones are packed away. I've
never replaced the decals, and i won't. I won't pass it off as original, as
i know it isn't.
