    " and here we go..."
    Whats this? a non transforming Batman....no way.
    I had this guy as a WIP with Green Lantern a while back. Figure is Ultimate Capt America's legs, holding up a MU Guardian torso head and arms. The cape was cut out retired dress material, very soft, very flexible, yet holds shapes pretty well for posing. I wanted an Arkam Asylum meets Origins style Bruce, so I went for a WWII belt ( probably his Grandfathers) and Caps boots fit in well with this I thought. Plus no raised insignia, the old suits were covering a Kevlar body suit (Frank Miller anyone?) and I dont think I would want a bullet target anymore obvious on my chest than he already has. Intimidation meets function was my goal and Im pretty happy with him. He will be going up on Ebay tomorrow, as always Im open for commissions, dont be shy ;)

    lol thanks, for some reason the fabric has a sheen to it thats very hard to photograph, didnt want to paint it either because it would stiffen it up way too much, but its not glittery at all without the flash. :D

    He looks good, but try taking pics with a light source other than the flash. Flash makes everything looks worse. A desk lamp works great for this sort of thing and can give you that cool side light effect that looks so good on Batman.
    Also, you might want to scale those pics down before you post them online. There's nothing to it. I just open them in Paint and use the "Resize" or "Scale and Skew" feature (version depending). If you're a PC guy just hit ctrl W and shrink em. If you're in a Mac, I'm sure there's an even easier way to do it that has some sort of dancing, candy-colored logo associated with it.
    Seriously though, the figure does look good.

    The sparkles in the fabric might be from it being a synthetic fiber. Go 100% cotton, and you'll get better pics and Batman will improve his hot weather game!

    It is synthetic! thanks for the tips guys, I just took the cape outside and spray painted it with flat black, maybe that will knock the glare off, we shall see :)
