    Hey all. Just curious to see what people prefer when it comes to Batman's cape. Personally I prefer the fabric one's. Even when I was a kid I always found that the plastic capes that came with some of my Batman figures were just plain annoying, and did nothing to help the play value of the figure. I've been thinking about getting the DC Universe Batman figure (the Wave 1 figure), but the plastic cape is the one thing that I don't like about the figure. This is one reason I really like the Batman: The Brave and the Bold figures, as all the Batman figures, so far, have the fabric capes. What's your opinion on the matter?

    must say i prefer the plastic, they last longer, and just look better to me.

    I prefer the fabric capes really on all my figures. The plastic molded capes just aren't as much fun.

    I guess this goes back to the good ole' Super Powers Collection days.

    Fabric, for sure. Molded plastic capes may look nice, but they usually just get in the way.

    If the figure is tall enough, fabric. If it's a smaller figure, plastic. As far as Batman goes, I would like a cape that can drape over the front of his body as well as over his back for action. Unfortunately, with figures, it's either one or the other.
