Improving the Takara Batman


I have been having this thought for awhile.
While the Takara Batman was a really nice piece of 1/6 fig. The rubber suits restricts movements too much and doesnt really show of what the gen x core body will do.

I have been thinking of cutting the rubber suit out into various sections and stick them onto a wetsuit or catsuit.

Do you guys think this will work? What sort of glue would work with rubber an a 1/6 wet suit?

Need some suggestions n views, before I start cutting up my only Takara Batman.

Thanks in advance!

Sure it will work, but the aesthetics will take a big hit. So the end results may not worth the effort. Like Batman's shoulders, don't think you can really find a way to cut it nice (which is the major articulation hindered by the suit). So this might end up being a suicide attempt. emoticon

I'm also thinking you shouldn't risk this kind of experiment w/ such an expensive figure.

Re: Improving the Takara Batman


Well, I actually discovered that the armpit areas of my Tak Bats was torn/ripped due to excessive posing.

So I decided, I should just go ahead with my customization project.

I have already cut out the sleeves/arms whatever you call that, removed the suit & the god awful, oily rubber pants.

Gonna order a wet suit from Triad Toys soon and get on with the project.

I'll let you guys know how it turns out.
Sure I dont think it will look perfect, but I think it will be much more poseable after the mod.
