Default Re: Kenner did actually make an accurate Returns batman figure

yeah its a good keaton batman but the problem is that its in the 12" scale. if your looking for an accurate Returns batman in the regular 5" scale, you will have to either do a similiar custom to the one i did with the snap on armor or you can just make due with the B89 batman.

oh btw, the arm doesnt "fly up" to the side like the power wing batman. the right arm raises foward in an upward sweeping motion. i didnt know this when i bought the figure.

I have that, and as accurate as it is, I remember it being fairly cheap. Why do these collectors figures have to be so ridiculously priced? Even that Mattel Reeve figure, as expensive as it is, is nowhere near as accurate as the BR Batman figure.

old thread i know, but i started this awhile ago to show off my custom. ive much improved my Returns batman since then, adding a new longer cape, the spikey winged bottom part of the cowl, an accurate batsymbol on the best, and painted the belt a more accurate shade of yellow. some pics with the flash on and off. what do you guys think?

Those figures are awesome, man. I used to have that yellow Batman figure, and a few others from the Batman Returns line. I also had the Penguin and two of those little rocket penguins. Those were great figures. I wish I still had them, but I didn't keep any of the toys from my youth. Moved around way too much for that happen.

Default Re: Kenner did actually make an accurate Returns batman figure

heres another one ive been working on. not as difficult as the Returns one, but still its I think a lot better then what we got. this is my attempt at a proper mostly movie accurate 1989 Batman. I took the arms, or should I say the forarm gloved part, from the shadow wing batman, and replaced the old gloves with the movie accurate ones. then I took JUST the abs part of the bruce wayne to batman chest piece and glued them over the ab area of the figureso he could have the movie accurate abs, then I painted the belt the proper yellow color so its not "Gold" but yellow, and added the movie accurate bat symbol on the chest. thinking about working on the cape, but so far im happy with this.

Default Re: Kenner did actually make an accurate Returns batman figure

I get the impression that Kenner was on a pretty tight schedule with the DKC and Returns lines due to being awarded the movie license at the last minute after WB took it away from Toybiz. Perhaps if they were given the first crack at it in 1989, the figures would have been more than hastily converted Superpowers figures (Batman looking like a cross between the comic-style Batman and the movie Batman and Joker being so skinny) and they would have been able to release the Batcave playset in time for the 89 line rather than trying to pass it off as a Batman Returns playset with Axis Chemicals being given Arctic World decals.

Still, other than the not-quite accurate suit details, the head sculpts of the Batman and Joker figures are fantastic, IMO. The Toybiz Batman and Joker look nothing like Keaton and Nicholson, although a few of the variant sculpts of the Batman figure seemed to be an attempt at it, while the Kenner figures are as close as you could possibly expect from a non-adult collector oriented toyline.
