Great find! Thanks! I just sort of kind of watched Justice League yesterday and was wondering if that Batsuit on the figure was in that movie. I was going to watch Batman v Superman too but didn't have time to watch both.  Unfortunately, I missed about 1/2 or more of the Justice League movie so I still didn't see if that Batsuit was in it or not. I will research it some more and see if I can find it.

The Bat Power Armour could be easily whiffed into something slightly more realistic. SpecOps, SWAT, something like that. Lose the ears and sand off the bat symbol on the chest. Add some grenade bandoliers, magazine pouches, some NVGs or a helmet and paint everything in Multicam.  :icon_swat:

That's a great idea but for this one I already have plans for it as is. Will reveal later.

One more 1/24 figure. Last one for now but not the last one in the stash. Just the last one for now that I assembled.

The parts are separate as shown below. Unfortunately, two pieces were broken and were not in the parts bag. One fingernail was broken off and missing from the left hand. One of the smaller spikes on the back on the right side was also broken off and missing. I will try to scratch build the broken and missing pieces.




Overall assembly.





Here it is on the base. I won't be using the base though.

Here are a couple of 1/35 arachnid aliens. They came as one piece.






Here they are next to a Nuts Planet 1/35 figure. They look a bit smaller than 1/35. If I remember correctly from Starship Troopers, the arachnid aliens should be a bit bigger. Maybe these are babies.

Agree that they a look a lot like mini versions of the bugs from Starship Troopers. Do you have any 1/72 / HO / OO figures?

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I don't have any 1/72 scale figures but I do have a Revell 1/48 standing pilot figure from the F-14B/D kit. The pilot figure is a bit scrawny itself so probably not exactly 1/48.

Here is the Revell 1/48 pilot figure next to the same Nuts Planet 1/35 figure.


The 1/48 pilot and 1/35 figures next to the 1/35 arachnid alien. The 1/35 arachnid alien looks closer to 1/48 instead of 1/35. I will keep the arachnid aliens as 1/35 as I am not doing a Starship Troopers dio. They will just be whatever type alien invasion bugs.

Got another Superman figure assembled. The product ad says 75mm total height but it is actually 90mm tall with the column. The figure itself is 75mm tall from the tip toes to the top of his head. Technically, it is smaller than 1/24 so can't be used with any other 1/24 figures. As usual, it comes in separate parts to be assembled.






Here are the two Superman figures side by side. As you can see, the one on the left is smaller than the other one. The one on the right is the one that is molded in the likeness of Henry Cavill. While the one on the left is 75mm tall from tip toes to the top of the head, the Henry Cavill one is 81mm tall but is also on his tip toes. I would say the Henry Cavill one is more true to 1/24 scale.


The overall detail on the smaller one isn't as crisp as the detail on the Henry Cavill figure.

I had assembled another Batman figure along with the other Superman figure shown above. This Batman figure says total height of 95mm with the base. With the base being so big, I thought the figure itself would be close to 1/24 but I was wrong. It is a bit larger than 1/24. Anyway, as usual, it comes in separate parts and needs to be assembled.







Here it is posed with the other 1/24 Batman figure I assembled a couple weeks ago. It is bigger than 1/24. The one on the right is leaning forward slightly while the one on the left is leaning forward a lot more. If both were to stand straight up, the one on the left would be taller so the one on the left isn't 1/24. The Batman on the left is 95mm tall to the top of his raised bat mask ears. So it seems that when Yufan says 95mm total height, they aren't including the base even though they say total height. The other Batman on the right is 83mm total height without the base.


Here is the other Batman posed with the Henry Cavill Superman. These two roughly scale to 1/24.

Batman looks more like he should change his "persona" to CATMAN crampon-like features on his feet.  :smiley:

From this presumably:



I originally thought that particular bat suit was from the Batman vs. Predator or Batman vs. Alien comic books but I found this image from Batman vs. Predator and no crampons on his boots. He does have an armored bat suit though but not the same as the one on the figure.


GTX Admin had suggested that bat suit might have been from the Batman vs. Superman movie as he posted in the above image but I found this image that shows his boot and again no crampons. Those crampons/spikes seem to be made up by Yufan.
