Custom #:57683  
Name:The Dark Knight Dynamic Duo - Batman & Carrie Kelley Robin
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Batman

Date Added:January 24, 2014
Base Figure:Batman-TDKR Batman, Piledriver / Robin-TDKR Robin, x23
Height:6.50 inches
One of the most quintessential Batman Books of all time, Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns is perhaps my personal favourite. I liked the DCD versions, they look great, but I needed better articulation. So this is what I came up with.

Batman- I took the DCD torso and fit the ML Piledriver arms and fit them in, and put the batman gloves on piledriver's forearms. Then I fit the crotch and legs into the Batman torso. I also added the tops of the batman boots to the piledriver boots and sculpted them to flush them together. I also added a balljoint to the neck for extra range of movement. Then I tied it together with a repaint.

Robin- Almost the same process as batman. I added a balljoint to the neck. Popped in the arms from x23 to the robin torso. However I added the robin sleves dremeled out over the x23 biceps. Then I added put the x23 crotch and legs to the Robin torso. I used DCU cheetah lower legs, and used DCU deadman feet for the elvan/pixie type shoes. Then I gave her a repaint.

Thanks for checking these guys out!

Love how you improve these figures!

DCD figures usually have very limited articulation and there reasoning is that it would mess up the appearance. Well, your Dark Knight proves
that there could be a bit more articulation and have a fantastic appearance.

Excellent stuff Pulpy, both of them look like they've leapt off the page! Really good work on Batman and Robin, I think this might be my favourite Carrie Kelly custom ever!

I remember you telling me about these customs and I thought at the time it was going to be tough to make it all look seamless. Well my friend I am so sorry I ever doubted you because these customs look fantastic. The way you added all the different parts and articulation and still look fresh from the factory is a skill few possess. I study all of your customs and look for that altered part or fabricated feel and I just can't find any. You flat out tell me where you altered the figure and still it belies my eyes. Pretty freaking awesome. It's always a treat to see you post new work.
