Custom Nightwing Movie Concept Action Figure � Created July 29th, 2012


During the events of the Dark Knight Rises, Detective John Blake helped Batman during Bane�s attack on Gotham. After the attack, John Blake was approached by Batman to help him keep Gotham city safe. John Blake modified a spare Batman suit for his liking, but wanted to wear as little of a mask as possible. Lucius Fox developed a pair of sonar goggles specially for Blake, modified from a pair of spy goggles worn by Selina Kyle. After some training and preparationg, Blake took some of his old police night sticks, strapped them to his side, and fought to protect Gotham City from criminals as the vigilante hero, Nightwing!

Pretty cool story huh? It�s the story that I wrote in my head for what could happen after the events of The Dark Knight Rises. I just couldn�t get out of my head the image of a movie concept Nightwing, so I had to make it. He�s made using the body of a Movie Masters Dark Knight Rises Batman, the head from a MM John Blake, the goggles from a MM Catwoman, and the belt, holster, and night sticks from a Marvel Legends movie Daredevil.

I removed the belt and cape and filled in the gaps left from them. Then, I had to resculpt the chest area to make the Nightwing symbol, and sculpted onto the shoulders as well. I also sculpted onto the bicep areas, and removed the scallops on his forearms and sculpted over that to smooth it out. Then I just had to paint the mask on, rework the Catwoman goggles to fit on John Blake�s head AND be removable, and attach the Daredevil belt and then paint everything up accordingly. And now John Blake is ready to roam the streets of Gotham City as Nightwing, protecting all the citizens!

Congradulations on your custom going for over 200 bucks. It deserves it!!!!

Great job man, did you just do a simple head swap for this custom or did you completly take apart the blake and batman figures
Mint Condition Customs - Saturday, August 11, 2012
It's all in the description. It was from a simple head swap. I had to use hot glue in Blake's head, because the socket was too big for the ball peg on the Batman body's neck.

Wow thats so cool. I wouldn't mind Blake being Nightwing but if there is another movie I think he'll probably be Batman because Batman was saying "Batmans a symbol......It doesn't matter whos underneath"Lol I'll talk about your custom now.1st GREAT paint job.2nd If I heard this was released by MM, I would believe it.3rd GREAT backstory. I'll try to get a spare DKR Batman & 2 John Blakes(1 as John Blake 1 as Nightwing) so I can try it myself.I only saw 1 other John Blake on here & it was pretty good too. Good Job & I look forward to more

Yeah, he would definitely end up being Batman. But sometime my "fanboy" brain likes to write up new concepts and story ideas to help justify characters like this. It was just for fun.

Brilliant execution!
Dr. Snorable - Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Not really a spoiler though.
JeddTheJedi - Tuesday, July 31, 2012
I saw this and just freaked out, excellent execution of an idea everybody had immediately after watching the film (or even before seeing the movie)!
Mint Condition Customs - Saturday, August 4, 2012
Yeah I certainly had it after the movie, like immediately after lol.

I'm really diggin' this one!!!
tonyvaldez - Monday, July 30, 2012
Awesome! Wish we could see what costume John Blake would have in the movie. How did you sculpt the Night wing symbol on his chest, Thanks
KnightTakesPawn - Tuesday, July 31, 2012
It's pretty heavily implied that he'd just go on being Batman as the trilogy is very much based on the theme that the "symbol is more important than the man underneath"...amazing custom nonetheless! Nice work! Love the paint apps on the gloves!
shiningknight23 - Monday, July 30, 2012
so cool. if they would make another one, this is probably what he'll be like. great job!
