Hello All! first time customizer/ poster redrobin0436 here with my newest creation, The Batman! I am writing a work of fiction that continues the Legend of the Dark Knight where the Dark Knight Rises left off. with * SPOILER ALERT* John Blake taking over the mantle of the bat.

I decided on using the AC Nightwing body because 1. John is slimmer than Bruce and the nightwing body style reflects that 2. The way I figure it is John Blake is Christphor Nolan's version of Richard Grayson, so I thought it would be a nice homage to the former Boy Wonder 3. The sculpt on the Nightwing body has that sorta "future tech" look to it which I think in critical to the "Nolanverse"

As FOr the rest of the figure, I slapped a Movie Masters Dark Knight belt on him, sculpted on the glove fins, added a nice raised bat symbol (which took forever to get just the way I wanted it) popped on a DCD Batman head (Used the Arkham City head because it looks to be a younger and more slender sculpt) added the "armor plates" onto the back of his neck (not sure if you all can see in the second pic) and finally gave our new caped crusader a custom made cape.

painted him up using citadel colors, sealed him up and now he is ready to defend Gotham City for a new generation!

Thanks for looking, be safe and I am always open to comments and suggestions

That Batsuit is a really good look, love the mix of black and grey, and the slightly leaner build that is very appropriate for John Blake as Batman.

I just pooped my pants a little bit...AMAZING! The color scheme is DEAD ON! And THANK YOU for also suggesting that Blake becomes the Bat. I've been arguing with people tooth-and-nail about this since the movie came out. Props on using the AC Nightwing base! Looks perfect!
