This the latest version of a custom I've been tinkering with. Like everyone else, I wanted to make a custom action figure of what John Blake might look like as Nightwing, and there are many such really good customs on the realm. The base figure was a Prototype Batsuit because I wanted a leaner look for Nightwing (though it does result in the head looking a mite big). I sculpted on the chest emblem, collar, shoulder armour strips and the bottom of the gauntlet. The removable wings are cut out of sheet plastic and held in place by two twisty wires, a technique I used for my Batman Beyond custom. The main things that I changed are the mask and hair - I ditched the removable mask and decided to permanently sculpt one on, and sculpted additional hair on the front of his head so he looks a little more Nightwing-like. With the colour scheme, I wanted to blend the default blue look and the Renegade/New 52 red look Nightwing has had, as well as drawing some inspiration from the colours of a Kenner figure based on Chris O'Donnell's version of Robin. Thanks for having a look!
