This is mainly to showcase the cape for this figure. It always annoyed me when I was a kid that A: the capes on the old Kenner figures were never large enough and B: on the animated ones they never did the lining of the cape blue (which it was, back in the day when I was watching it.)
So here is the cape, complete with wire for posability. This 're-conditioned' Batman (I had to resculpt his chewed off ear and repaint him), also sports a cartoon accurate Batarrang which I sculpted from Milliput. No over-sized bat-gadgets for him! Note too the black outline on his mouth and belt, hinting at the cartoon look. I also gave him a stand which I painted to resemble the Batcave floor. I'm still trying to achieve the blue sheen that appears on the black areas of his suit without just painting blue streaks across it, but I'm saving those ideas for my multi-jointed TAS Batman.
Ain't the Animated Batman cool?!

Thanks! I think Batman figures have come long way with detail and articulation but they still mess up when it comes to capes! Rarely do they have cloth capes and when they do, they are too small! One day they won't be thinking about saving money, just making a top-notch figure...nah.

Wish Batman toys were like this from the get-go. Very nice, huge fan of B:TAS, you did it justice with this custom.

The size of the cape alese bugged me too. Very effective custom work.
