About this creation
Still refining the frame using the Mixel/Chima joints. This version has double jointed knees and elbows. 100% legal, 100% purist, 100% Batman















Notice the double jointed knees in this photo. Credit for this idea goes to Steffan Sørensen . Steffan has also been experimenting with these joints and came up with the idea of using those oldschool homemaker hand joints as knees and elbows. I have refined his idea by adding 1x1 round plates (under and on top of the joint) to allow the full range of movement without the joint splitting apart.







The Batman Symbol acts as a the shadow/base

Brilliant! I was going to say that he looks like a ballerina but I guess you got there first ;)

@ Copperskull - Thanks for the comment. I purposely used the older 2x2 round plate (with the older style axle whole) for that exact reason, thanks for noticing. Now you mention the lower legs, you are right, I could have added some cheese to create more of a bat look.

Pretty great, but then again... Batman is always awesome ! I really like the head design, it actually makes the mask look like a bat's face, with the angular shapes of lego :) I like how you made the muscles on the chest as well. I really like the simplicity behind the bat-symbol on his chest, the axel pin hole actually makes it look like the bat ears. I'm not a really big fan of the lower legs, they seem too skinny and plain, but I guess they still work. I love how you did the gloves too, with the classic look. I do see some room for slight improvement but it's really great, and I love it ! BTW, the base is GENIUS ! :D

Excellent fig here, Chief! The scale of the joints really work well with the rest of the body. I'm guessing we'll be seeing a few more in the coming weeks!

Quoting Lego Builders Am I correct that this is at a smaller scale than your previous figures (due to the new ball/socket joints)? -LB Jr.
Hi LB. This is my second frame using these new joints, the first was much smaller but this one is a little bigger and is very close to the size of my usual figs. Maybe only a few studs shorter, his chest is actually wider for that cartoon look. Would like to see your build.

Once again you have created another figure very accurately. I think this is my favorite one from you. Am I correct that this is at a smaller scale than your previous figures (due to the new ball/socket joints)? I should get some of those new pieces and try to finish a figure that I have sitting around. -LB Jr.

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! One of the main reasons I havent built anything using these joints is for the very reason that they don't work well with the studs out design. I may have found a design that will work. I'll keep you posted. :)
I am intrigued and can't wait to see it, I have managed to cover 3 sides but not all 4. I do have an idea for the fourth side but it needs some refining.

Thanks David but I think this guy has a little more than 100 pieces, at guess he is close to 200 pieces. I am really looking forward to the contest and I think I am going to try something a little different.

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Very cool. Love the shaping of the torso. I plan on using my own mixel joints for a fig too at some point.
Thanks Mate. Would love to see a fig from you using these joints. They are very practical/playble but difficult to hide. As you know we both normally use those 1x1 bricks with studs on all sides(daleks or snot bricks) to hide any unwanted studs or the under side of plates. Unfortunately these joints do not allow for this.

Quoting Senator Chinchilla . I recently watched some of the original Batman. I miss the days when he wasn't so dark, and everything he owned was prefixed by "Bat." Nevermind that though, this is splendid! Plenty of posability and sass. Not sure about the anatomical correct-ness of the double knees, but hey, it's not like the real Batman was made of ABS.
Hahaha thanks Mate. Double jointed knees - sounds very painful.

Quoting Steffan Sørensen So you tryed the double joint technique like u sad.. and it look awesome
Hi Steffan, I am very pleased you commented. I wanted to credit you with the knee and elbow idea but I could not remember your name or find my original comment. I have refined your original idea by adding 1x1 round plates under and on top of the joint. These plates allow you to move the joint without it splitting apart.

"I have refined your original idea by adding 1x1 round plates under and on top of the joint. These tiles allow you to move the joint without it splitting apart." I have tryed that to but my yellow pieces ar from my dad and around 40+ years old so thay ar not so stable anymore.

Holy Batstand! I like the figure but I must say that my favourite bit is the brick-built bat logo stand. The way that you've made a batman logo on his chest from just two 1x1 tiles and round plate is great too: simple shapes but it triggers the right image in our brains. The variety in your builds (cars, figures and giant dinosaurs) is brilliant.
  April 26, 2014
Haha, super cool! You've done a great job of capturing the feel of the Animated Batman. Great work on the bat symbol, and the display base really ties it all together brilliantly.
