The Ninja Man-Bat figure from the Batman and Son line is excellent, but for me it was a similar case to that Yellow Lantern Scarecrow - I'd much rather a regular version of the character than one specific to the storyline. So a while back I stripped off the bandoliers, belts and snatched away his katanas - all of which have proven to be very useful as fodder. So I was left with something closer to a traditional Man-Bat, and did it up in a very splotchy paint job and just left it like that for a while. I finally came across that coveted LOTDK Man-Bat figure (the one with the huge wings) and that kinda inspired me to properly finish this guy up. Using a strip of plastic from the fodder bin, I created a regular belt, painting on the belt loops and buckles. A full repaint apart from the inside of his wings - including dirty grey jeans, a richer brown for the leathery wings, and a reworking of the eyes and teeth. Now, he's good to go flying on leather wings!

Neat work! Man-Bat: so underrated he didn't even get a single mention in Arkham Asylum.

Thank you! Yeah, that was a shame. I mean, even Humpty Dumpty got a shoutout, and Man-Bat didn't. Wut.

Now that's a beautiful classic Manbat. I was just reading his 1st appearance with the Neal Adams art and this is spot on.

Thank you - wow, I'm glad it ended up looking so close to the character's first appearance! I think this was a great sculpt, it just needed all the 'ninja' bits taken off and a bit of a repaint, and am happy you like the end result!
