Hi all,

Here's my custom Batman Bat-bot I did a couple years ago.

He's made of:

6" Iron Monger (Iron Man movie)
Sculpted bat-head and belt base
Super-glued torso together to stop the swinging right arm movement
Gauntlet blades & utility belt parts from the 12" Dark Knight Batman
Everything else was painted and sealed

That's pretty cool. Think I recall seeing this on mattycollector, no? With Mattel's love of all things Bats, surprised they never made a CnC or Oversized figure of this.

This would look seriously cool in the back or middle of my Batman display.

Packerbacker, you are correct sir! Since I figured I will be spending an infinite amount of time away from the Matty forums (thanks Mattel!) I may as well post my stuff here.

More to come and thanks for the compliments everyone

Here's my incomplete (and still I assembled after the move) Batcave...

As pictured:

- Measures: 5' long by 3' high by 2' deep
- Rock wall was built using crumpled newspaper with plaster-infused gauze and painted with the Krylon rock textured spray paint
- I built the bat-computer out of foam board and printed pics
- the chair is Captain Kirk's from Mego and painted
- the cabinet is courtesy of Wesley from the Angel show figures
- a whole bunch of odds and ends accessories
- even a dinosaur (had it since I was a kid; knew I'd need it someday!)
- odds and ends suits

UPDATE:
- as soon as I can reassemble it, I'll post new pictures with the new accessories I'm using to replace what's

Heres a closeup of the bat-computer

By the way...the white is not guano, but the plaster!

Here's the weapons/utilities area

The weapons will eventually go up on the wall
