Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:3378

Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Batman
Creator:DDA

Base Figure:M.Bison
Height:6.50 inches
Here he is people, my pride and joy! :D

After getting an official Batman: The Dark Knight Returns figure, I wanted to give him more articulation for obvious reasons so I decided that my Street Fighter: Series 1 M.Bison was worth giving up for Batman so I cut, sawed, modded and painted it to turn the Big Red Psycho in to the Big Dark Kinght :)

I modded the head and neck so that it looked straight ahead (he originally had a slight turn in his neck) and so it would fit on the M.Bison body and retain its movement.

I cut off Bisons 'gauntlets' and modded the Dark Knight gloves so that they would fit to the size left on the arms and again so they kept their movement.

I took of his coat tails and put the Dark Knight belt on.

I cut and modded the chest and knees, covered them over with putty and smoothed them out.

I modded his knee gaureds/foot gaurdes with putty to turn them in to boots.

after all that I painted him in the appropriate colors, put a bat symbol on his chest, put his cape on and he was ready to fight the mutants :)


Base: M.Bison (Street Fighter Series 1)
Head, Cape, Gloves, Belt: Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

ps. I may at some point mod his boots further so that they have a more 'Batman-esk' look about them but for now their alright with me:)

What can I say except, AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It looks amazing and the Bison happened to be the perfect body to use.
Very clean and accurate. You did ol' Bruce justice.
For you guys that are not familiar with these books look them up. This is EXACTLY how Frank Miller made Batman look in the future!

The figure is very well done, but the base figure makes him look like he may have been eh, going overboard on the Bat-Twinkies.
