Customizing the Diamond Select Batphone

Post by Ben Bentley »

I know that the Diamond Select Batmobile-style Batphone is more of a characatured interpretation of the original prop, but I was wondering if anybody has customized theirs to bring the color more in line with the glossier fibreglass look of the original? I really like mine and for the price when they were released I really don't have any huge gripes with it as I certainly didn't buy it under any illusion that it is a screen accurate replica, but I am really tempted to experiment and see if I can get mine looking a little more like the color/finish on the show.

Has anyone out there messed around with theirs? I'm also planning on filling the base (coin bank) with hot-glue or something similar in order to give it a little more weight.

I modded mine to light up. :) Got one super cheap, didn't mind cutting it up a bit. Looks really cool.

I can't get a true pic or vid of the phone (it always shows too "white", which is not what it looks like in real life, where is it perfectly red but glowing), but here ya go-
