    My second TFA Batman related piece is the Batbike. Many of u may not know it but Batman relies on the bike when the mobile is in the shop. The bike got alot of exposer in Batman the Animated Series as he and Robin both used them.

    I used the TFA Prowl and repainted the entire body black. I removed prowls head and replaced it with a Batman head from some figure from the mid 90s. To get a head that was proportionate I had to sacrafice the totally hidden head but it still looks pretty cool. the hardest part of this one was getting the arm blades made. They are prowls lightbars mixed with sculpt and zoids pieces. I kept them seperate and replaced the combining factor as 2 fins on the back of the bike just looked cool.

    *chuckles* Somehow, relating Batman to the Autobots just doesn't seem right, but a spiffy outcome none the less.I never realized what a powerful stance Prowl had until I saw this frontal pic of the bot mode Batbike.

    very sweet. Nice to see a Prowl custom with a new head too, that just helps confirm ideas I've been tinkering with.

    Pretty awesome custom, Shinobi. I think I know what you used for the head its from a future batman figure because I have toy review type magazines that shown pics of it. But anyways very awesome look for DC heroes, now we need is Superman or whoever then..oh yeah Justice League, Transformers style.

    Very cool. I would so buy one of these if Hasbro made one. I have a couple Batman/TF custom WIP myself. As Joker put it, Batman has such "wonderful toys" that as a TF fan I can't help but wonder what they would look like as TFs.

    Now, you need to take TFA Oil Slick and make him into DC's Lobo. That's your homework assignment for the weekend. I'll expect the finished product on my desk first thing Monday morning.
