Custom Batman 1989 Movie Style Action Figure By Mintcondition

DC Comics: Jay Cochran - 2014.11.16
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a 7" Batman 1989 Movie Style Action Figure. This custom was done by MintCondition.

Here is how he describes it.

"Due to the way the license is set up, NECA wasn't allowed to make a straight 7" figure of Michael Keaton's Batman portrayal from 1989. The only way they could do it is to paint it in the old NES video game colors. I decided to change it and repaint the entire thing to look like the movie. This involved taking apart the entire figure, including removing the head from inside the cowl (yes there's a full Michael Keaton face under there). All the pieces were prepped, and then painted. I even put detailing in the face, including the black makeup around the eyes. For the cape, I dediced to do something extra. I took some black rayon material, and used a movie accurate cape pattern to make it. I then made a second cape, and added some wires running through the top for Batman to hold in his hands outstretched to mimic when he first appears in the movie. And now this custom Batman 1989 action figure is ready to take down the criminals of Gotham City! "

Check out the images of his work below in our GALLERY.

Nope its not a line and licensing is where the money is at. Toy licenses are often broken up into very strict rules regarding scale. Even the 18" license in some cases has restrictions. For instance Hasbro as the Master Toy License for Marvel won't allow NECA's 18" figures to be so... read more
