Seeing as we're showing Nightmare Batman I thought I'd drop mine in too.

Goggles are from SiDan and I got them from lapetitebrique.com

Jacket is from eBay and a store called Easton Home and the legs are from EclipseGrafx.

If only there was dark tan and black arms... I think I may spray some with vinyl dye.

Non-Purist Batman Beyond

The parts that are non-purist are the hips and the head. The head is just a plain black Lego head that has 2 strips of Lego-sticker-sheet-border cut and applied for the eyes and mouth. The hips had a tiny bit of printing removed.

I wanted to expand upon this awesome design:

Batman Beyond:

Helmet: Batman's

Head: This one (I don't know the exact name because I didn't find it on Bricklink.) or a really cool modded one like c0rnedfr0g did!

Torso: Red Nightwing's

Arms: CMF 8 Vampire Bat's with wing parts painted red for extra accuracy.

Legs: CMF 15 Jewel Thief's or plain black, or the CMF 13 Galaxy Trooper's or really, any appropriate black legs, or best of all, some really cool modded ones like c0rnedfr0g did, possibly in conjunction with the others I mentioned.

I know that this figure has a lot of purist parts, but of course, mods can be made to any of my suggestions to make them more custom than purist.

Happy building, everyone! - The Big Red Cheese

Great work on all of these

Through the Jay Garrick link, what legs does Wasp use? I know I've seen them somewhere but can't place my finger on it

Those are the legs from the Sinestro figure.

Thanks for the compliment, and sorry for missing your comment. To both confirm and clarify The Lego Nolan's response, yes those are Sinestro's legs, with a bit of Sharpie added where Lego's printing just didn't quite cut it. :)

Those are the legs from the Sinestro figure.

Thanks for responding to Quicksilver838 more promptly than I would've. :)

Thanks for the kind words, TheBigRedCheese !!

You have inspired me to continue tinkering with my Batman Beyond, now using the red gargoyle wings from the CMF S16 Imp, some leg printing courtesy of the recent Dragon Knights (to balance out the amount of detail / amount of red), and the newer cowl (sans chinstrap) since Terry doesn't have quite as square of a jaw as Bruce (although I wish the cowl's ears were longer).

I think the wings definitely blend nicely into the back printing (which previously by itself didn't work too well for this character).

Thanks for looking!

c0rnedfr0g,

You're very welcome!

I'm glad you decided to continue tinkering, as the fig is even better than before! :O :) :D

The only thing that I don't love is the Imp's wings. For me, at least, the red just seems a bit bright, especially considering that this is Batman we're talking about. :P

I'd recommend some black paint, or something so as to "dull" the red's appearance, but other than that, I think the figure is awesome.

Also, you're right about the chinless cowl: It's a darn shame that the ears aren't longer. :(

Has anyone tried making a Wonder Woman movie Ares figure with the head of a character that actor previously portrayed, maybe with the facial hair besides the mustache removed?  I was specifically wondering if such a helmet as is used in the movie, or something similar, even exists in Lego.

I haven't personally tried this, but

 

David Thewlis

the actor who plays Ares in the film, also played 

 

Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter film series.

 There was a figure made of that character a few years ago, which can be seen here. (Linked image may contain spoilers. Open at your own risk.)

He is

 

a tad less mustachioed than Ares/"Sir Patrick Morgan", and also has a scar running through one his eyebrows,

so it might be a bit of a stretch, but I think that with the right mods, it could work.

As for the helmet and armor, we have this helmet (Again, linked image may contain spoilers. Open at your own risk.) that looks like it might do the trick, and I'm sure there's some armor combos out there that'll work.

I like your idea! My copy of said figure is a tad indisposed at the moment, and I'm not sure I want a permanent DCEU Ares, but I hope someone does this and takes pictures!

I didn't say the actor's name or previous movie because I didn't want to spoil the reveal for anyone who sees this and hasn't seen WW, but that's the head I was talking about.  That snake head is a good suggestion, but I'm not sure the movie helmet looks like the skull helmet in the set.  I was gonna try to perfect the set's Ares when I get the set, but after seeing the movie I'm not gonna keep him built unless I make a figure version of him.

My apologies. The way it's written, your comment is a bit spoilery as well, so I thought it was just that you didn't know the actor's name or any previous movies, which is why I stepped in. :P

I've since edited my original comment, and I think you should too.
