    Well I finished this yesterday (or so I thought) I'm not too camera friendly (maybe I take lousy pics, maybe the camera sucks.... I don't know) so I didn't take too many shots. I just wanted to see what you guys thought. BTW: there's no pics alt mode cause I noticed the stuff my friend said "is just like sculpty" sucks and seperated from where I removed the engine on the hood. When I re-do it, I'll post more pics.....

    Anyways, I got the inspiration for this from Shinobitron. I didn't want to just duplicate his, so I used what I thought was a more animated looking head and filled in the eye area with more of that wanna be sculpty (It worked fine here and elsewhere, which is what really confuses me) For some reason, I couldn't get the shoulders apart so I ended up having to take clippers to it, which screwed up any chance of me putting a ball jointed neck on it like I had planned. So at the last minute, I called MacGuyver (great guy that MacGuyver!) I ended up putting a screw into the bottom of his neck and attached a round magnet the the shoulders and sculpted over it a bit, and added his "cowl" to hide the fact that I really shoulda bought some sculpty. But it worked. His head has full range of movement, just like a ball joint. I really wish I woulda done something with the hands, but I ran out of time because I'm actually giving this to my roomate for christmas. Other than that, my girlfriend made the cape. I wanted to use something more leathery, but I couldn't get to a fabric store and had to settle for walmart (who, btw, only had 3 transformers total left yesterday) I'd love to hear what you guys think, good, bad, or otherwise because I can tell there are a few areas I need improvment. But I already got 2 great ideas for other projects (And this time they're original.....I swear....at least, I think )

    Big Batman fan so I dig it. I think it would of looked better with a more modern 'Dark Knight" bat emblem though... and it think it would of worked very well with the shape of the chest. But still awesome!

    Pk--- I actually got the head from some random batman figure I found at the flea market. I just filled in the part where his eyes are with putty.

    YES! I'm so glad i'm not the only one that sees Mr. Freeze in Oil Slick. I've been thinking of ideas on how to turn the chopper into a snowmobile(makes more sense that way).
