For many fans, it was bittersweet when Mattel announced a collect and connect Bat Signal being released. It was amazing that a real working projecting Bat Signal on a 6″ scale was coming out, but it was for the movie line, meaning it had the movie emblem on the front. It was a turn off for many people, so I wanted to bring to life the classic styled Bat Signal. I used precision cutting from a stencil I made in Photoshop of the classic comic emblem, and cut the emblem out of polystyrene. I gave it a weathered metal look. I wanted it to look as if it had been painted black, but over the years the paint was scratching away. I used acetone to remove the painted movie emblem from the lens of the Bat Signal, and carefully glued the new one in place, making sure everything was lined up just right. The signal still lights up just fine, and projects the new emblem amazingly on the wall. Perhaps Mattel will release a comic style Bat Signal one day, but now at least you no longer have to imagine what it might look like.

Oh man! this is what I was thinking of doing too, glad im not the only one. I am not really a fan of the Nolan movies, I want a Tim Burton style batsignal, like the one you see at the end of the 89 film. So at least I know I can do it, I need to cut out a 89 style batsymbol for the one I want to do. thanks for the tips!
