I'm new here at Figures.com, but I've been customizing for quite a few years. Here is my latest work...
I have always wanted to build a batcave, but the prospect of such a daunting task has always seemed like unto eating an elephant...so how do you eat an elephant?...one bite at a time. I have decided to use a modular approach for the Batcave so each station will be made separately. First and foremost on my todo list was the Batcomputer. I honestly can't remember where most of the parts come from exactly, but it is a combination of Marvel Legends, McFarlane, Mezco, DC Direct, and even the Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel series. All of the computer monitors are made out of cardboard and CD covers. Although the Bat symbol is on each monitor's wallpaper, they are all made like a pocket so that different screens can be interchanged. The Drafting Lamp is completely made from lego parts, toothpicks, wire, and a stir-stick that I used for the light bulb. I could not find a proper scaled phone that I liked, so I carved one out of wood. There actually are 13 points of articulation on this station, the floor rotates, the chair swivels, the lamp can be tilted and swiveled, the base holding the monitors can tilt forward and all of the monitors are on armatures made from Marvel Universe scaled stands. The disk drive also has two sliding doors. The catwalk is made from "Watchmen" series bases. Well, the Batcave will be an ongoing project for me, I have plans to add a couple more things to the Batcomputer, but not until I have some other pieces completed to go with it.
Outstanding! One piece at a time! I can't wait to see more!
