Batman - the Dark Knight Rises Repaint Custom Action Figure

Custom #:41280  
Name:Batman - the Dark Knight Rises Repaint
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Batman - Dark Knight Rises
Date Added:July 28, 2012
Base Figure:Mattel TDKR: Movie Masters Batman
Height:6.00 inches
I picked up a Batman Movie Masters figure from the Dark Knight Rises figure line today. I was impressed by the sculpt, but once again the paint application was pretty weird. How can you mess up Batman?? He's all black! hahaha. Anyway, I just felt he was way too plastic-y. He was too shiny, and he had gloss on his boots and gloves/gauntlets. So I decided to repaint him, with movie accurate colors.
First I needed to fixed his mouth. WAY TOO shiny and monotone.. So I gave him multiple skin tones, wasn't easy in such a small area lol. Then I painted the cowl and the suit all black. I went back to do the grays in the areas where they were needed. I didn't repaint the belt or the cape, I thought those were fine. I've seen some awesome capes done on here, but I didn't attempt, maybe later.
Also please check out my other TDKR repaint of BANE!

Thanks for checking this out, and feel free to check out my other custom figures!

Nice gr8 improvement. But that 1st pic looks too gray but its probably just the light. Personally I think his body is fine but his gloves & boots were the only problem. & I mean the original figure not your custom. I really like the face paint job. Gr8 job

Thanks for the input

I would guess that it's because of the lighting. Without a light tent and a specific setup, I have noticed flat paints like to react to the light and look lighter.
