    I actually checked with the DC Team. These aren't the droids you're looking for.

    As long as he is in scale with MOTUC I am happy. I am really hoping for a Superman as well.

    I seriously have my doubts that the only shared parts between the MOTUC tooling library and this TDKR Batman are the shoulders.

    the final may not be "a Batman fig using the MOTU buck", but you can't tell me after looking at that pic, which may be a proto/mock up, it doesn't use parts other than the shoulders!!!!!

    i'm sorry, but...

    Do you think MOTUC would let DC borrow the shoulders a second time for Superman in the same style?

    wouldn't motuc shoulders look outrageously huge on a dc buck?

    i'm thinking they made a slightly smaller version of the motuc buck molds.

    No they made a brand new DCUC buck to fit the shoulders the same way MOTUC parts would.

    I just found out about this today, and think it is awesome. I will definitely buy one, and definitely display it with my MOTUC!

    So they're saying the shoulders are the only MOTUC parts on this figure? Because those certainly look like MOTUC biceps and legs to me...

    Scanning Batman for MOTUC parts again, I can see how it's more new parts than it appears at first.

    Chest is new, flattened out for the logo. Muscle detail has been softened on the chest and lower torso so it looks more like clothes instead of having a belly button.

    Gloves may even be new, with more of a stretched fabric look between thumb and forefinger.

    Thighs, calves and biceps look like MOTUC to me, right down to the bicep vein that's part of the MOTUC sculpt that doesn't make the translation to plastic. Maybe these parts are MOTUC pieces that had some sculpting added to reduce bare muscle definition like the torso.

    I can't see how the pelvis and hip joints underneath the shorts wouldn't be reused, though. Redoing those for no reason doesn't make any sense, right?

    If we are to take Scott on his word (when has he ever lied?) and it is a new buck created for Batman I wonder if the MOTUC team will "borrow" some of the pieces to use on other figures?

    They can't borrow from DC. It's entirely possible, even if unreasonable, that they tooled brand new DCUC parts to mimic MOTUC parts to avoid sharing parts.

    I actually hope that this is the case. Because if it is, they will certainly utilize these bits again. I'll grab every DC figure that utilizes this buck.

    Which I don't think they would have done unless they had plans to reuse the parts. I think we'll get a Superman using the buck and maybe even a hawk man and Manhunter

    I was absolutely sure that the torso at least was a brand new sculpt,
    since it doesn't have a navel and CLEARLY doesn't have nippels (which the MOTUC torso has).
    Can you imagine the uproar, if Mattel released a Miller Batman with not just nippels but a NAVEL as well?
    The internet wouldn't just break in half due to fan rage, it would shatter.

    I personally won't be picking up this Batman. I never liked Miller's Psycho Batman.
    The only Batman work of his that I like is Year One, everything else is either meh (DKR) or a massive URGH (DKSA/All-star Batman).
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    It would be known as the Joel Schumaker version of TDKR.

    Does anyone know when we will find out if the Young Justice 2 pack is a go or not. Even though it is pricey I really want that Superboy and Miss Martian 2 pack. I love the show and would like to complete the main team.

    They just extended the pre-order window - to 8/31, I think. So I would expect some kind of official announcement right after Labor Day.
