Finally finished this set up a little while ago and have not had time to post them yet. Took me several months to finish all of them. I thought of creating a not so distance future where some type of apocalypse destroys the world as we know it. The air is contaminated and chaos is everywhere. In mad max fashion, the bat family has suited up to protect the innocent, at least what little is left of them.

Where to start; I guess I will begin with the first I completed and go from there.

Batman was created using several different parts. I took a DCUC standard buck and chopped the lower legs and lower arms from DCUC Arkham Asylum batman and re-attached to the standard buck. I cut a DCUC Sandman head and attached the bat ears with sculpt. The cape was cut up to resemble wear and damage. I then added the paint and battle damage/weathering.

Robin was created with a Movie Masters protosuit figure. Sculpted the eye mask and robin insignia. Added the mask from movie masters Ras.

Red Hood was created using a Young Justice Sportsmaster upper body, Jonah Hex Lower body, Legends Nick Fury jacket, Legends Moon Knight head. Robotic arm was from some McFarlane figure and was sculpted onto the Sportsmaster arm. I love the old west look and could see Jason donning this look with his cocky attitude.

Alfred's mechanical bat suit was made using the Proto Bat from Batman the Brave and the Bold toy line. He stands 12" tall. Gutted the internals so that Alfred could get inside. Lights and sounds still work. Gave him extensive weathering in order to show how the harsh environment is affecting him.

Alfred was made using a Mad Love Joker buck and DCD Hush Alfred head. Sculpted the bow tie and gave him a clean look as he would be only venturing out in the elements while in the bat suit.

For Nightwing I wanted to give him an infected look. He did not take the precautions when going out in the poluted air and it has affected him mentally and physically. I used a Legends Moonknight body and DCD Hush head. I wanted to make the chest emblem look like it was cut out of the suit so I added the flesh color and dried blood.

I hope you guys like the set, and I had a lot of fun making them. Sorry about the long details.

Wow this is an amazing set! Seriously, that Bat suit's weathered paint came out flawless... every figure in this is top notch I kind of agree with the other person that pointed out Alfred's suit, would be kind of neat to have given him something more rugged looking, like possibly even going back to style of the old west. The vest with arm bands and a white long sleeve shirt, instead it could be tattered though.

Love it. I think thought you should re-duex Alfread to have like a completly messy dirty tux ( fit the theam )
And have his white cumberbu. Thing be all rolling up. Like he was a crazy guy who wanted to be a butler but could t quite find all the right pieces to make the outfit? Food for thought. Love him have the shotty.
And love the bat bot! Amazing paint and everything is awesome. Just wanted to throw that idea about Alfread out cause I would love to see you " wasteland out" Alfread

You really ought to post these individually, I would love to get a better look at some of the figures, but overall these look really good.

(jaw hits floor) Great work all around. I love the mech suit for Alfred. It really looks rusted through and beat up by the environment!! I also really enjoy the thought process behind each figure and why they look they way they look. Great use of parts to create each figure!
