Hey all...I'm guessing FitzJedi is gonna LOVE this one! Made him using a DCUC First Appearance Batman to avoid any paint rub and modified a DCUC Lightray head since it had the smiley face. Basically sculpted all the costume details over the existinig body and added the folds and designs. He's still fully articulated and the paint is good and sealed. Oh yeah, the cape actually came from a Movie Masters Batman. I chose it because George didn't have a big flowing cape, just a straight down cape and this one worked perfectly. thanks for looking. He'll be on eBay later in the day

Pure genius! Painting this masterpiece in gray & black tones to capture the old-school black and white vibe is BRILLIANT!!!

This was one figure I had thought about for a long time. I haven't saw a custom of one and this really makes me smile! I had even went so far as to get the base for him bought and planned out and downloaded several ref. pics. That's 95% of where my good intentions of customs make it to...lol! Thanks dearly for making this SUPER custom!!! I love it!!

Awesome job, have you considered adding a bottle of scotch for added realism?

Great tribute!

Guys - you are TOO kind! Really, I appreciate all the support and encouraging words. This custom was a labor of love to be sure, but I think he turned out pretty good. Not 100% satisfied with the head, but the general likeness is there. Got yet another Cavill figure coming, but this time it's the Marvel Legends Constrictor with the MM Cavill head and cape. Having the actual MM figure in hand made sculpting the details accurately a lot easier! Thanks again for your encouragement and for taking the time to look!

Best G. R. Superman yet! Love the monochrome paint job too!

I straight up second that! I've seen a few customs of george Reeves superman, but none of them deliver on the likeness as close as this does! Plus I agree with the greyscale comment as well, it adds the masterstroke to why this custom works so well!

You know, am watching the series at the moment.

Fun fact - did you know the suit in the B&W episodes was actually brown, so it would contrast better?

Aw man... now I have GOT to finish my Kirk Alyn... This is beautiful.
