Christmas


OKay- after sitting in my toy room for two months- I finally got a chance to unbox and play with the batpod and DX12. Fun.

This now accompanies my original release tumbler. I also picked up the original HT Joker, MMS67 Begins, and the latest Begins which to my surprise is nearly identical to the original minus the pneumatic mangler. I also have everything else on pre order so this will eventually be a pretty substantial Nolan-Verse collection to go with my rather extensive collection of Nolan-Verse props and suits..
.

I have to say- this thing is not as pose-able as the HT pics would lead you to believe.. What a pain in the ass.. I felt like I was going to break it.

Anyway- here is what I got using Iphone 5 as camera and Ipad Mini as light source.:lol

Re: Christmas


I like my ht tdk figure. I am hoping that enterbay does a 1/4 to go with my begins but we shall see. I actually just put my ht begins up on eBay and it looks like it will sell. After comparing the two figs side by side I just couldn't get past the inaccuracies of the ht begins. The enterbay isn't perfect but it is much more accurate especially with the cowl and how the cape mounts. The torso is a little long but the armor is accurate. Plus the thing stands on it own no problem.
I am actually debating selling my ht 89 fig now as well. The cowl is great but the armor is just too defined and the cape is horrible. Granted I did make a latex cape to go with it but I can't get it to drape the way it should so the pleather one is back on it. I am just starting to be much more selective with my collection choices.
I did want the ht tumbler but couldn't figure out where the heck I would put it.

Re: Christmas


The Enterbay Begins is not accurate. It's not just the torso that is long, the cod piece is too narrow, proportions of the entire suit are just off.. Cowl is not bad , though. The kneecaps just suck.. I wanted one myself but after seeing the final version, no thanks.. Still the best toy version to get for sure.


The only way to get a toy as accurate as possible is to get Bale's bodycast 3d printed in 1:4 and then having the suit sculpted on it.

Re: Christmas


Ok I do not get the knees comment at all. Shape wise they are almost exactly the same. The eb is a little thicker but ten times better than the ones that came glued on the ht figure. The cod needs work quite a few people have said so as well. Narrow isn't the word I would use but more flat and a little too wide. The cape being hacked up is my fault. It is a custom cape but my scissors are horrible.

Re: Christmas


Here is a comparison pic that clearly shows how inaccurate the torso and the proportions are. It's even missing finer lines on the abs that should have been there.

Thanks for the close-up shots of the kneecaps. They actually look decent.. The overall shape is there, just not well enough defined.

Please post some pics of the sides and back of the boots.

Post pics of the back of the suit as well if you can, thanks.

I will. You will have to ignore my horrible ghetto belt thing on the back though when I do.
