Hi All, geez its been ages

Recipe :

DC Direct Killing Joke Body & G Belt.
History of the DC Universe Arms, Cape & Neck.
Dc universe fists & Glove Spikes
Dc Direct Arkham Assylum Head.


This has been an ongoing custom that I previously had completed 2 years ago but decided the head I had on before didn't look quite right.I decided to also totally repaint my previous Neal Adams version and fix the grey to a darker grey and the blue to a lighter hue. I also took off the iconic G belt and resprayed it yellow from its original colour.I changed the head to the one from the DC Direct Arkham Assylum figure and reshaped the ear pieces. The result had been staring me in the face for 2 years until last week when I realised hang on a second this head will look way cooler.

Now I truly think I found a perfect recipe for the 1970's Neal Adams Batman.
Its a shame about the limited movement you can do but , you sacrifice looks for articulation these days. This would also fit right in if you wanted a figure to go with the DC Direct Arkahm City Line for the 70's Batsuit skin.

Hope you guys like it ,
Mike
