    all we would need is a complimenting azrael or az-bats, maybe a sandstorm az-bats?

    This is a whole new level of epic. Great idea, great story and great execution. My only minor nit pick would be that the pait looks a little thick in places. My advise would be to sand it down, very lightly with very fine sand paper.

    Many thanks

    As for the paint thickness this was the prototype so to speak and had some issues with the "belt" area. The green was a real pain to cover. When I did the commissoned one later I knew what to do and the paint job was MUCH better than this one. I guess that's what you run into when doing customs. :)

    The vehicle mode has a very Tumbler-esque look, nice work.

    Unbelievable!! I absolutely love this.. By far one of the best transforming batman customs. Wow. It makes me sad that they can't do a DC/transformers crossover.. I've always wanted a transforming batman.. Plus villains.

    Many thanks!!!!

    I also did a couple. I did a Joker and a Mr Freeze as well. Though not sure if the picture attachments are still there. But by far this is one of my favs. And makes no sense that they do not do this.

    I’m not a fan of resurrecting threads but I gotta ask; how did you get the Batman’s head on Springer’s body? Was it a simple swap or did you need to mod it at all?

    The decision to use Thrilling 30 Springer was genius.

    The overall head size was spot on. The figure that I used for Batman had a ball joint as well. Now, it has been awhile since I did this but I think Springer's ball joint was just a little bigger than what the Batman head needed so I just sanded it down with sandpaper until it was a good fit. No other mods needed.

    One of those cases of "Hasbro, this would be an easy thing to do. So, why you not do this?!?!?"
