Batman ’92 (Returns)
I’ll admit, the results of this project are a bit odd. In 2023’s Flash movie, Alt Flash crafts a costume from the old Batman Returns suit. McFarlane made a figure of that hybrid look, and that’s the base of this figure. It captures the main parts of the suit well (read more...)
Batmobile ’89
Someone once described McFarlane’s ’89 Batmobile toy as a $60 model kit, and that description is apt. I’ve wanted a proper 1/12th or 1/10th 1989 Batmobile for so long, and when we finally get one it falls short. Ignoring the fact it is undersized, my biggest complaint was the misshapen (read more...)
Mr. Freeze (’97)
Since I completed this custom figure, Todd McFarlane has announced his versions is coming soon. And his will be more screen accurate than anything I can do. But I still felt like this project was worth discussing, as it used some more advanced techniques. Before Todd announced his, I’d seen (read more...)
Max Shreck
Max Shreck! How you have eluded me, sir! I’ve been wanting to make a Max since long before the advent of 3D printing, but I could never find a head that could pass as the distinctive Mr. Walken. Even now, I can’t find much in the way of available 3D (read more...)
Summer Gleeson
Gather ’round, people. I’ve a story I would tell. Most folks know that Batman: The Animated Series owes its existence to the success of the Tim Burton Batman movie. BTAS was commissioned and developed in the wake of that first movie’s success, and then sort of ignored and left to (read more...)
Superman (Nicolas Cage)
SPOILER! After 30-something years, Nic Cage finally got his chance to appear as Superman in a movie. Most of us know Tim Burton worked to develop a Superman movie after Batman Returns, featuring Nicolas Cage in the cape and spandex. The Superman Lives endeavor made it as far as costume (read more...)
Christopher Lloyd
I like to think that if the Muppet Show had carried on for just another year or two, Christopher Lloyd would have been a natural fit for a guest star. (Based on Taxi alone, well before Back to the Future.) This custom figure is the result of that thought. I (read more...)
Christopher Reeve
The Christopher Reeve episode of the Muppet Show is pure delight. He is clearly having tremendous fun with all the fur and feathers. When I stumbled across a free 3D print file of Christopher Reeve’s head, I knew I had to take action. (Note the head was of Christopher, not (read more...)
Alfred Pennyworth (2005)
Finding one of Michael Caine’s Alfred costumes in 1:10 scale is harder than it sounds. I never did find any of his exact suits (much less sweater ensembles). I ultimately settled on this TV Gotham Alfred body from Diamond Select. I don’t think I even repainted anything. It’s not exact, (read more...)
Alfred Pennyworth (Snyderverse)
I don’t think there’s ever been a poor choice in Alfred casting, on camera or voice actor. But amongst an elite group, Jeremy Iron’s Alfred stands out. Just the perfect blend of fatherly affection and snark.  As of this writing, he’s also the only on-camera Alfred whose costume color pallet (read more...)
