Steampunk Batman Custom Action Figure

Custom #:48693  
Name:Steampunk Batman
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Universe
Creator:Jin Saotome  
Date Added:April 8, 2013
Base Figure:Marvel Legends 2012 Steve Rogers
Height:6.00 inches
"I saw him gliding across the tops of zeppelins that night, an iron shadow with gnashing gears and scalloped wings of copper." ---Gothaven City Resident

As promised I'm expanding my DC Steampunk line with more characters and the Brass Knight himself, Batman is up next. Batman's story is set in an alternate timeline within the city of Gothaven with the Joker leading the clockwork soldiers from Clownstein Castle.

This custom Steampunk Batman was created from a Marvel legends Steve Rogers upper body, DC Direct Batman head, and Marvel Legends Punisher lower legs. All the armor/goggle/detail was hand-sculpted with Aves Studio's Apoxie Sculpt and real leather straps were used. The clockwork wingpack was created from fodder parts including two dark blue wing sections from some other Batman toy and cabled throttle controls. His grappling gun was made from a Gears of War Locust gun. Real metal gears and brass fixings were also used to bring this Steampunk Batman figure to life. I have Steampunk versions of Robin, Joker, and Bane planned along with other DC Universe characters like Green Lantern and Darkseid so stay tuned!

This, my friend is an awe-inspiring piece.

I'd love to see a steampunk version of bane, before or after he injects the serum into himself to become a hulking brute.

Very interesting and creative! That crazy because I am working on a concept Batman using the MxFarlane Akira bike. I better step on it lol! Sick!!!
Jin Saotome - Tuesday, April 9, 2013

da man - Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Jin Saotome - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
And more on the way...
The Composer - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
Very well done! I love the colors. Black and copper always go well together.
Great concept executed brilliantly! Thank you for the inspiration.
Jin Saotome - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
Thanks, hope it inspires you to do something Steampunk as well
TheRealSupaMan - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
This is seriously just amazing! The design is just off the charts! I would love to see this in some sort of movie! One of my favorite Batmans to date!!!
Jin Saotome - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
That's one thing I hope that's done someday, themed superhero movies that aren't just based on their original appearance. I mean all we get are rehashed Batman and Superman origin movies. I want Kingdom Come, Elseworlds, Steampunk, etc on the big screen!

This is a masterpiece, Jin! Being a big, geeked-out fan of both your work and ACCustom's, it totally blew my mind when I saw 2 Steampunk Batman's post within minutes of one another...TOO COOL!
Jin Saotome - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
Yeah, coincidences abound!
Banner/HULK Inc. - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
Wow! What a brilliant design, awesome and inspiring work by you. One of the best steampunk customs ever
Jin Saotome - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
Thank you, and one of the best ever? That's high praise, wow.
firefly - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
the details... the colors... plus creativity...WOW!
Jin Saotome - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
The colors are cool? I waffled between black and grey or dirty tin and black but went dirty tin/brown/black here.
Rogue - Monday, April 8, 2013
This is outstanding!! Love all the little details!!
Jin Saotome - Tuesday, April 9, 2013
Thanks Rogue! Hope it inspires someone to do some Steampunk characters of their own/
ACCustomFigures - Monday, April 8, 2013
Dude, love it!
Jin Saotome - Monday, April 8, 2013
Thank you AC, yours rocks too man, especially the removable goggles.
G Brand - Monday, April 8, 2013
Well... I can scratch him off my list. I can't touch this masterpiece!
Jin Saotome - Monday, April 8, 2013
Don't let me stop you! I make these to inspire other customizers, not scare away. Do a better one. Add pistons, metal wire, a gear-driven batarang. The sky is the limit! Steampunk Batman with a scarf maybe? Yours can be even more original.
jigsaw78 - Monday, April 8, 2013
Great Concept Jin!!
Jin Saotome - Monday, April 8, 2013
Thanks Jigsaw, gonna try to do this to every DC Steampunk.

Jin Saotome - Monday, April 8, 2013
Thanks man!
Gonard - Monday, April 8, 2013
I would really love to see mirror master, aquaman, green arrow, doomsday and clayface if your up for it haha XD
Jin Saotome - Monday, April 8, 2013
Green Arrow! I have the perfect bow for him... Clayface, like the one in the bubble head? Or...hmmm...clay over a steam-robot frame?
Gonard - Monday, April 8, 2013
holy crap man!!!! this is fantastic!!
I CAN NOT wait to see the rest of your steampunk DC!!
Jin Saotome - Monday, April 8, 2013
Well I've got a few planned but I'm always open to ideas. Let me have em!
ProtocolTenCustoms - Monday, April 8, 2013
Thats freakin AMAZING! I hope I can get as good as you!
Jin Saotome - Monday, April 8, 2013
With practice you can get even better. Look for stuff everywhere, think outside the box, there's tons of stuff to use in customizing that a lot of people skip over.
Wolverhulk Iron Spideysurfer - Monday, April 8, 2013
totally sick
Jin Saotome - Sunday, April 14, 2013
Thanks Wolver, glad ya like him.
Blain3 - Monday, April 8, 2013
What a coincidence that someone else just put a steam punk batman up--- this is amazing!
Jin Saotome - Monday, April 8, 2013
I swear I checked all the figure forums and ebay before I revealed mine and didn't see any other Steampunk Batman figures. I try not to step on anyone's toes that way.
Blain3 - Monday, April 8, 2013
No worries- that's bound to happen at some point, right? Ya never know what other people are putting up at that moment
