My Hallmark vinyl Squeelys arrived! I was so tempted to customize Batgirl and her Batgirlcycle in ‘66 colours! The Batman is a 2016 convention exclusive to promote this wave of six DC character vehicles. (The regular Batman and Batmobile were comic book colours.)

So... I colour-changed Batgirl to TV series' colours! And I found a Robin, who is wondering why Batman takes up so much room in the Batmobile these days. By the way, the unpainted licence plate on the rear of the Batgirlcycle reads “BGORDON”.

My custom Lee Meriwether and Eartha Kitt Catwomen join the official Julie Newmar figure:

Believe it or not, that's a ReAction "Breaking Bad" Gus head for Eartha. It was leftover after making my William Shatner Two-Face!

Now there are three more! I customized a George Sanders Mr Freeze to accompany the two commercial Funko variations (Otto Preminger and Eli Wallach). The new head is from a ReAction Korben Dallas (from "The Fifth Element"), with hair colour-changed to grey. The transparent helmet - now painted silver - and movable faceplate came from a female space figure I found on eBay last year. I made the helmet match the "Batman '66" villain's look with some quickset putty and silver paint.

I couldn't stand it not having screen-accurate eyebrows on this Catwoman. Used a "Very Fine" Manga marker.

And - wow! - as I was typing, Wave 6 of the 8" figures just arrived!

At left is my custom Catwoman (Lee Meriwether) from the "Batman" feature film, plus new 8" figures from Figures Toy Company's Wave 6: Catwoman as played by Eartha Kitt, the Joker in disguise as the Maharajah of Nimpah, Julie Newmar's Catwoman, a very thin Alfred Pennyworth in disguise as Batman, and Security Guard Egbert Pennyworth, who happens to be Alfred's identical cousin.

I did do some tweaking on the Catwoman figures: darkening the plastic sections of Eartha's hair, altering the fit of her pendant and mask, and trimming some hair from the front of Julie's cat ears. I also added gold paint to the clawed gloves. Lee's Catwoman wears Julie's mask, to show off Julie's unique eyebrows.

Excellent, Ian! I wasn't aware the 50's Bat Girl was available yet. I'll have to pick one up.

Cheers!

My tribute to Batman #183 in miniature. Made a shadow box out of two $2 frames from Walmart, Cover trading card, doll house tv with photo of logo from the beginning of the show and the NJ Croce keychain bendy figures (minus the keychains).

Bat-Girl, of Teen Titans West, is new from Figures Toy Company (same week of release as the TV Catwomen wave). I did tweak her red boots a little. The original shoes were simply the green Robin comic book shoes, molded in red. I was originally going to glue them in place but her feet are tiny, so I used a spare pair of Supergirl slippers I had on hand and combined them with the heels and pixie points from the backs of the red boots.

Gorgeous!

I am having fun with my new Funko "New Teen Titans" figures, which go so well with the "Batman '66" figures!

I love the polar bear with the Mr. Freezes (or is the plural Freezie?). And the tiger with Catwoman and her gang.
