Don't expect anything crazy here - these Running Press kits are tiny. The boxes are about 2 x 2 x 1 inches.

Here's a couple examples of what they did for Batman kits:

Judging by the price, I figured it would be a little on the small side.

Yea, it's to be expected.

Not to say it can't be cool desk fodder - I have the Bat Signal, which lights up, and it's a neat little set. Very much a stocking stuffer type thing.

Did the Batman books have sound chips? When I read the word 'quotes' in the amazon listing I thought of printed quotes not sound.

The Batman kits don't have sound chips. It's probably just printed quotes.
