Batman (1989)
Posted on March 4, 2024
Difficulty:

I think it’s fairly telling of a company’s quality when it releases a long-in-demand fan favorite version of a character, and the first thing everybody does is tear it apart to make it look accurate. Not a good look, Todd!

Todd’s 1989 Michael Keaton Batman is… fine. I guess. But it needs help. First and foremost, the tiny head with too much neck had to go. I bought a set of files from InkOfficer that included a “normal” head, and angry head, unmasked, mantle, and neck. The Keaton Batsuit famously does not allow the neck to turn, and I felt InkOfficer’s sculpts reflected that better than Todd’s.

I should mention I not think the unmasked head is meant to be a realistic portrait of Michael Keaton. To me it looks like a an upgraded version of Kenner’s unmasked Bruce Wayne head, back in the day. And that amuses me.

The cape comes from OT Customs. (I think. I’ve bought a lot of capes lately!) InkOfficer’s mantle allowed me to place it over the cape. The heads connect to the body via magnets, and lock all the pieces in place.
