Batsuit dissection

Post by Batfan1995 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:48 am

The adam west batsuit is one of my favorite live action looks of the character to ever hit both big and small screens, but that’s not to say that the suit didn’t have its issues. With that being said i came across a photo of the 66 batsuit that was “updated” and i was intressted to see what others might think and perhaps even identify the man behind the mask.

Ugh-- I see plenty of issues here. I can't stand the fake muscles be they painted or black rubber.
Not for me.

I agree 1000%. It looks silly.

I believe that is the 66 skin from Arkham Knight ( Note the black strip on front of boot) and a nice representation of that suit.

Too much like all the repaint figures over the last decade and more.
Leave alone what has worked.
Nice 6pk ab though, with my tight suite on I have a 24pk

Interesting take, not my bag personally but i'm always intrigued to see how people interpret things and bring their variations to life. Looks like a Will cowl to me?

I think Jimmy is right in that this appears to be an IRL interpretation of the '66 inspired Arkham game skin.

Might as well paint a mustache on the Mona Lisa.

I have that beat. When I have my tight suit on, it looks like a keg!
