Grayson Batman (DC Direct) Custom Action Figure
|Custom Type:||Action Figure|
|Toy Series:||DC Direct|

|Base Figure:||"Killing Joke" Batman from DC Direct|
Richard Grayson Batman: Base figure is a Brian Bolland style "Killing Joke" Batman. Since Mike Locasio sculpts so many of the new figures for DCD, including some of the Batman INC figures, I decided to use this Batman as the base. It has alot of Mike's signature sculpting style and it seemed logical to me to use this base as a hypothetical 'what it may look like' if DC Direct had Mike also sculpt a Grayson Batman to go with Damian.
I chose the Ray Vilafane sculpted "JLI" Batman head because the overall shape reminds me a lot of the Frank Quitely and Cameron Stewart depictions of his cowl in Batman and Robin. I smoothed the forehead and softened the chin to make him look a bit less cranky. I split the upper and lower torso to remove the old 80's Batman belt, then glued it back together and sculpted the abdomen to be smooth top to bottom. The belt was sculpted after the aves hardened, so I could cut it really close and evenly. The gloves are from some Battlestar Galactica toy, and the gauntlets are also sculpted. Paint is really thin layers of Testors Acrylic, with a hand-painted symbol on his chest.
