These decals were all custom designed and applied via clear decal paper for the heads and stickers for the torsos and waist sections - as I've found it is really difficult to apply white decal paper without getting some loss of ink here and there...and stickers keep the detail just as well).
Head decal wraps entirely around the head. (Saying it was difficult to get on perfectly and aligned...is an understatement!!) As you can tell, it was difficult to align it right, and because of that, I had a little scuff to the side of the head decal. Torso and belt were applied fairly easily and turned out okay. Just wish I had access to a more high quality laser printer...FedEx Office laser prints are not up to par in my opinion. Also, would have used a sand green torso if I had one, instead.
She has two faces; one with her goggles lowered, and one without. The detail in the torso decal is lost, unfortunately, due to the lack of quality in the laser print out, but her body has a texture to it in the background to match her suit in the movie. Also, unfortunately, I designed some leg decals to go with to show her boots, but it didn't quite work out...I'll work on those and post those later as they are fixed. The hair is the closest Lego has to what she has in the movie, and I think it works out alright...if only I could attach some goggles to the hair piece...but that is above my level of expertise here.
I just did a new face decal and a torso one for him. Tried some arm decals but I am currently reworking them and if they work out, will post some updates.

I've created a mockup of how I think it might look best...this is NOT a real figure, but the pieces I think it would look best with...not sure what hair would be best to create a realistic look from his character in the movie.
Bruce Wayne - Recluse
This is a version from the beginning of the movie, where he is in hiding and looks gaunt. I wasn't sure what face looked most appropriate for how frail he was then, so I included both. I used the following pics for reference:
The face was also based on the TDK Bruce Wayne figure pictured here at Firestar Toys.
The Dark Knight
This is my edited version of a decal by a person at the Minifig Customization Network. You can find the original decal here. I applied only a couple of light coats of green paint to a Dastan hair piece, as the movie Joker had a bad dye job and had some of his darker roots showing. I loved the original decal, but didn't think it had the proper shirt underneath, so that is the only thing I tweaked. Anyway, thought I'd share a pic and the altered decal. Note: if the original decal artist doesn't want this posted, I would be glad to take it down.
Hope you all like them, I'd love to hear your feedback!
And...getting psyched to see what Nolan has in store for us in this last chapter...but I'll have to wait until next week unfortunately! (Family vacation first)
