OKAY. So it has been a long time since I've been inspired so obsessively that I drop EVERYTHING and focus on ONE custom.

Hats off to grungethemovie for his AMAZING Dark Knight Returns Batman. that figure is one of the most BAD-A$$ I've seen, and has directly inspried not just THIS guy, but a Superman and a Robin from that series as well. I did this Batman a while ago with a DCUC body but grunge's was so awesome I had to try his recipe.

SO thanks to grungethemovie for this direct inspiration, and thanks to all the other DKR Batman customizers including 4LCC, DDA, and Madtinker76, Shinigami, Horton, and my man, Ole Jade Jaw.

Neca Guile, with mad amounts of sculpt on his head to get an angry old Batman. I sculpted the individual pouches for the belt and then glued them to a piece of strap; sculpted the boots, gauntlets, pretty much everything. Cape is wired for MAXIMUM poseability!

Of course he needs his girl, Robin. She is a LCBH Panda. sculpted her body and head; glasses arecut piece of plastic from a figure package. Her cape is also wired.

All these will be up for grabs soon.

COMMENTS AND CRITIQUES ARE WELCOME!! THANKS GRUNGE--second pic is an homage to your pic!!

May I ask how you sealed the wires into the cape? I've noticed that crazy glue on fabric sometimes melts the fabric and has a wierd chemical reaction. Did you do this a different way?

That is awesome!!! I'm a big fan of that graphic novel and have been dying to do a figure of him. Haven't settled on a base fig. yet, but I Love ho0w you did this one! and good use of the base fig. for girl Robin! I actually had her and Clown face and traded them in because I didn't think I'd get much use out of them, but that is an excellent use!

The proportions on this figure fit the DKR version of Batman really well, and you've hit the sculpting out of the park, particularly with the head - it's just amazing. Very, very well done as usual, Fitz.
