    Yeah..... it seems to be motuc "inspired" at least. Some of those pieces may superficially look like motuc pieces but there are differences that betray the fact that they're new. Having said that there's no doubt in my mind that these parts would be compatible with a motuc body so yey for customizers. I might get one.

    It is a MOTUC body. There's obviously new parts like the shins and forearms.

    Thank you for posting that.... I was positive I saw that MOTUC Batman before here at the customs forum. They look almost identical!

    The last Batman looks stupid because of the colours used, but the sculpt is good.

    Actually, I wouldn't buy any of those figures... 3 more figures to throw in the bat-toilet !

    Have you guys even read the Dark Knight Returns? He may not have been that ripped but he was definitely that big. Batman was a big, hulking demon in the Dark Knight Returns. If they make a Superman from TDKR he'll probabbly also have the MOTUC body. I'd love an Ed McGuinness Superman with the MOTUC buck. Hell, all the characters are built like a vintage MOTU figures in McGuinness' Superman stories.

    Big Country is right, maybe the most important Batman story in the last 30 years and we have people in a Batman thread who have never read it. Yet they feel compelled to let us know how little they know about Batman by dissing how he looks. Boggles the mind.

    If you like Batman enough to see other interpretations of the character outside of the Nolan movies or The Animated Series then I would highly recommend you start with the Dark Knight Returns. Or, Year One. Or The Long Halloween/Dark Victory.

    The oddly colored Batman next to Bat-Mite is the Batman of Planet X or Zur-En-Arrh who was an alright Batman. His Bruce Wayne was closer to Clark Kent which is interesting because on Planet X our Batman had the same powers of Superman. They had a whole Brave and the Bold episode dedicated to that story. This Batman for example had a villain that was almost identical to Lex Luthor and pined for a love interest very similar to Lois Lane. I never thought I'd see the day they made a figure of the Batman from Planet X.

    Master English's Frank Miller Batman looks better than the Mattel one. That's a great face sculpt!

    I love that comic! so unique and interesting, it really paved the way to how Batman would be envisioned from now on. This new action figure I'm not digging as much as the earlier one released by DC Direct a few years back. The one MGM posted.

    That wacky colored Batman is using the old early 2000s Batman line's buck. I still have that Martial Arts Batman! LOL

    Awesome custom! Yep, that is the DC Direct one. Love 'em or hate 'em DC could do a good face sculpt in that scale. They know their properties.

    The Mattel 52 Wonder Woman looks like a buy. That new-old style costume is really growing on me.

    I got to agree here. That Batman looks exactly like the image in Frank Millers story. He looks nothing like MOTU.

    I personally like it. He looks like TDKR, and yet is made with MOTUC parts.

    If I bought Spector, I have to redeem myself and buy this Batman.

    HOLY CRAP!
    I use Sir Laserlot to make Superman, and Might Spector to make the Joker!!

    EVERYTHING FALLS INTO PLACE!!!!

    No offense to ME 'cause that's a beautifully done custom, but I still prefer Mattel's. I like the expression on the head, and I love how thick the symbol is. ME's symbol looks a bit narrow for this version Batman. And obviously the non-MOTUC gloves and boots helps a lot.

    I see it as either you can bite the bullet and get it on BBTS, you can try your luck at TRU, Target or Walmart or you can go the route of Ebay. Do you have a comic book store nearby?

    Strangely, I find myself agreeing with you more and more lately, bigcountry. This is the first Batman figure that I will purchase. Hands down, the best Batman GN ever published. Excelltent story.

    And don't read some of the sub threads... You'll find plenty of people that haven't read Watchmen. And many who have that don't understand why people would want comic inspired Watchmen figures...
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Honestly, I haven't read either of them, but I do know of them. & also, I always thought that the DKR version of Joker kinda looked like Walken.

    Absolutely fantastic stories. Well worth borrowing them from the local library. Well worth buying them in my opinion, but definitely check them out. They are both in my top five graphic novels...
