Ashton Drake Batman sculpt

Post by njboywonder » Tue Apr 24, 2018 9:08 am

I'd have thought this must have been posted/discussed by now but I did a search here on the maker and it yielded no results...

If I'm wrong, has anyone somehow seen future figures in the line?

Thanks.
Brett

This figure was part of the Bradford Exchange discussion.

Bradford Exchange

Judging by the "success" of the other products they've produced in terms of accuracy and quality I'd want to see this in person first.

Honestly, not accurate enough to justify the price, but cool that it creates opportunity for characters not released in that format.

Have you seen one or are you going by the image they posted?
Because we've seen with other items that what is actually made is a far cry from what is solicited.

I'm really curious about this one, because with the fabric suit it's in the Hot Toys arena but for about 1/3 of the going price for those last time I checked. Accuracy isn't there with the prototype photo but I wonder what it looks like in person.

You'd think someone would have bought one by now.

I'm with Andy. Someone has to have purchased one. Let's see some pics! The track record with company and the way their products actually look, is horrid. I was painting model kits from the time I was 7 that look better that the finished product from this company. Speaking of model kits, Andy PM sent with a model kit question for you.

The website now shows a Joker in this line. Wish they would make a Robin, that would have made me jump in on this Batman.

I would like to put some photos of this figure on here but I never did before and don't know how. I've been trying but can't get it to work.

Hey John-
Its actually pretty easy-- they have to be below a certain size but if you don't have the ability to edit them, you can either send them to me and I'll post them, or post them up on another site (blogger for example) then here when you go to post make sure you're using FULL EDITOR and click on the image link-- it'll create a little batch of type-- go back to the picture you've posted, right click and save image location and then paste that into the image type in the new post.
If you need to send them to me my email is andy@andytfish.com (don't forget the T)

Thanks to John D we have images-- I don't think this looks bad at all. It's not Hot Toys, but it's not Hot Toys price either (and it's bigger).

And it's probably the closest production piece compared to the prototype.

Interesting... the figure has some charm and could have walked right out of Spencer's Gifts back in the early 90s (like one of those Applause figures with more fabric).

I'd probably be interested at half the price Bradford is asking. As it stands, however, the Hot Toys Batman was a much better value.

Thank you Andy for all your help! The only thing I don't like about it is the shorts. It looks like a diaper.

Thank you, John D and Andy.
I almost pulled the trigger on this and would have gotten "Elder Batman Wearing Depends".

Is the belt able to go down a bit to line up with the underwear? If it did I think it would look better. Not sure I want to invest in this. I wish Robin was made in favor of the Joker they just announced.
