"Starting Out with bases for the 1970's Filmation
characters of Batman."
"Batman and his kids" : Mattel
Batman body with a BTAS head was used. Undercover
Wayne cape was used, too.
"Catwoman": I used a Poison
Ivy base, WW hair, and Zatanna head. Sculpted
the mask, forhead, and top of hair.
"Catwoman close up"
"Riddler" : I guess FILMATION
was not allowed to use him for this certain series
because, at this time, the SUPERFRIENDS CARTOON
had him. But somehow by changing the colors around
FILMATION got ol' Nygma in the opening credits
of this particular Adam West season.
Toys R Us Batgirl with a Hasbro Batgirl head.
"Robin": Repainted Nightwing
body with sculpey, vinyl, and a different Hasbro
"Penguin" : Super Powers
Penguin supplied the base, and I resculpted the
vest and then repainted
(notice this one has an actual eyeball, unlike
the Super Powers one).
"Moonman" : Dumb character,
but easy to make. Wayne has an astronaut buddy staying
over at the Manor for a week, and every time the
full moon comes out, the astronaut turns into Moonman.
Made with an Amazo body, and two tones of yellow
"Joker" : Wildcard Joker arms,
legs, and coat tails. BTAS Joker head and torso.
"Groupshot" : The Batcycle
and Batmobile are not from this certain cartoon,
but definitely from
this era! These models were a gift to me from
my good friend, Themis.
"Animated Fett Maquette" :
Sad story. My shelf holding four $65 maquettes
took a dive while I
was out of town for a week. Three of them broke.
Two of those look okay, but Boba Fett was beyond
repair---well, the cape was, at least. After glueing
Boby-Fetty back together again, I repainted him
as he appeared in the 1980's cartoon, DROIDS.
"Shadow Weaver" : As
the FOUR HORSEMEN are pumping out fanstastic updates
on He-Man and She-Ra figures, I felt there was
a character never to be made. Hordak's witch,
Shadow Weaver, from the 1980's cartoon, SHE-RA:
PRINCESS OF POWER.
"Shadow Weaver Unleashed" :
I made Shadow Weaver by using a SW Unleashed EMPEROR.
I took apart the cloak (two arms, a head, a cape,
and a body). Primed and painted cranberry. Cut
and sculpted over the front of the belt. Found
the "bat-buckle" in the junk drawer.
Sculpted over the face. Makes a nice "updated"
version of the character. Even retains the interchangeable
"She-Ra vs. the evil forces of Hordak"
