This is my repaint of the 3.75" TDKR Bane, or, as I like to call him, "Dang it Mattel, Part 1"

See, with Mattel's upcoming line of Burton-era Batman movie films being in the 3.75" scale, I decided to go back and replace all my Nolan-era Movie Masters figures with the 3.75" line so my Burton figures can go alongside the Nolan ones. The problem with my plan is that the 3.75" Nolan line... it's garbage. Even ignoring the abysmal articulation for a minute, only the Batman and Catwoman figures are even marginally acceptable as released. The rest either need completely new paint jobs (like Bane here) or are so unbearably awful (Scarecrow) that I'm better off building from scratch than using the Mattel release.

That said, Bane was kind of the best of a bad lot. He's actually got a decent sculpt, but it's so underutilized because of the lack of paint that I basically just repainted the entire figure.

An effective repaint, though perhaps you could clean up around the neckline with a marker pen for that detail.
