Once again Kenner didn't really do too bad of a job with their Riddler figure, but the pose was just kind of off to me. C1 gave me the great idea to make this. Using any mattel Batman TNBA or JLU Suit body. I used the TNBA Two Face because you can still find them at the Discount stores for like 5 bucks. I picked one up last week. Then I used the arms from the mattel JLU flight suit Hal from the SDCC 3 pack. Also now at close out stores. The head from a Kenner BTAS Riddler.The only thing that I needed to fix with the head was the mask to make it more cartoon accurate. Other than that the sculpt was done really well IMO. The one I had was in my spare parts bin & the top of the hat was cut off for some reason, so I had to fix that also. I boiled & popped the arms so that he would still have articulation. I used the hand from the Kenner BTAS version so he could lean on his cane like we see him in many shots. I also sculpted the tie to make it bigger like the cartoon & sculpted his hankerchief in his pocket. The rest was all paint work.
BTW if you are going to use that Two face figure. Make sure you use some Acetone to get rid of the " grid " on his suit. If you do not, when you paint him it will still be faintly visible. Made that mistake before on something else.
