    Hi there! Good to see you. Hope you are doing well. I have my next three TF projects well under way, byt for now I'd like to share with you a non-TF project I recently completed, the project that has been the bane of my existence for weeks.

    Fellow customizers...y'know that project that you get 1/2 way through only to realize just what you've gotten yourself into? Then you can't stop because you have such a clear image of the finished project in your mind so you HAVE to finish it? Well, that was my experience with my new custom, Jean Paul Valley Batman.

    Ah, Azbats. The temporary replacement for a broken-back Batman in the 90s. Unstable, violent, religious cult member, memory like swiss cheese...not the best choice. Here we have the first version, complete with razor-hands.

    So...originally 6" Azreal. The head was a 6" Batman head with sculpted mouth. I sculpted the chest mantle including a small gold jewel to simulate the light in the chest. I cut the belt, and sculpted the gap in his stomach. His hands from the wrist down were once Ultron's. I sawed them off, cauterized the wound, and epoxied them on. The leg spikes were once on Batman's gloves. The leg pouches were Red Skull's belt. He was painted with Testor's Model Master, by far my favorite paint. I went with a clean look on the blue, but the gray was painted black then dry-brushed.

    I just put up an auction for him here:

    Thanks for your time!

    I think I might be in the minority here, but I never liked the Batman series more than when this story line was going on! Knightfall was great! You really captured his early look perfectly! Do you have plans to do the second version of this suit? (with the helmet and new cape)
