@OT_Customs_ Just got my figure and your cape really nails it--and at half the price of the other capes I've bought over the years.

Unrelated, but I wonder if you could post a picture of where exactly you placed that sticky tack on the mouthplates to achieve that less recessed look for the chin? I tried a couple of different ways but I either had too little and couldn't see a difference, or too much and the plate was obviously sticking out too far.

Thank you, I created a novel template for these new ones that creates a nice amount of volume at the shoulder without adding to the overall work so I’m happy to keep costs down even though I know it gives a superior result.

I can take some pictures of the area behind the chin when I’m at my office but I only put a little under the peg at 6 o’clock. I push the top/philtrum side in first and let the bottom sort of extend out. Once it’s kind of sticking on I look at the profile and push the bottom in until you can just barely not see a gap behind the bottom of the chin. It’s a subtle difference but it helps a lot. You’re basically pivoting only the bottom out a bit and the top should pretty much sit where it would normally.

To really improve it it would be great to have a scan of the screen used cowl modified to fit the Hot Toys chins just right… maybe one day.

That makes sense; I was distributing the tack more evenly which was probably my issue.

Regarding the cape, what put if over the top is the shoulder volume, as you mentioned. The custom cape I had for my Armory figure sat almost flat on the shoulders, so it might as well have not been there at all. Yours look perfect. Wish either of my QS009 custom capes looked as accurate at this one.

I got a DX19 and Bat-Pod for Fathers Day.
I just need a wired custom cape for that billowing look now.

What an absolute pig to get him on there!

You’d think they would have gotten the cowl right by now

Hot Toys proportions have never gotten bales head for years.. Mostly because the forehead is way too high, eyes are not right, and the mouth piece is too small. Looking at over images, his forehead really isn’t that big especially at lower angles.

Anyone out there in custom land make a really nice wired cape for TDK/TDKR Hot Toys Batman figures?

I’d really like a nice posed cape to put Batman on the Batpod. Any suggestions would be great.

Got my two figures from SS today so I was prepared for shiny spots or other issues but luckily both figures look amazing and have no issues. Love everything about them except for the Key Chain things which I can’t see anyone using.

DX12 with DX19 cowl for those wondering. Didn't want to bump that thread. Would look even better on Armory body due not having the "gap".

*Sorry my photo skills aren't that great. These were hastily taken when I got the head. and gave him a good dusting.

'The Galleria' ?
I wouldn't use the crotch grab stand because the two ends can put dimples in the inner thighs and crotch plate over time. I just remove the cradle and keep the stem for support, even tho he's taller than it.

I think the stands they use for diecast figures, which have just a single piece between the legs, are a more suitable alternative.
