Fenix v.2.0 over at statueforum is painting my 1/4 scale Jim Lee Batman for me this weekend so hopefully I'll have the finished product to show you guys next week. Here's some unpainted shots posted for scale.

Just wondering. I know Lee worked with Frank Miller. Is Lee's Batman based on Millers version from The Return of the Dark Knight? He has the same look.

thanks

No, Lee hasn't worked with Miller up until this past year with the All Star series. The art is still all based on his rendition of Batman. Miller's Bats looks a lot different.

Looks awesome from the waist up, but from the waist down the sculpt looks a little soft (just went back and looked at the unpainted pic, and it seems that it is an issue with the sculpt that the paint is just bringing out even more). It could be that it's accurate to the artist's style (have never actually read a Batman comic!) but the legs don't seem to have anywhere near the detail or complexity as the upper body. Or maybe Bats has just spent too much time working his upper body at the gym and neglected his legs :lol

Looks great but i agree the waist down looks soft and another nitpick i have is with the size of the hands, yes Jim Lee draws them big compared to his head size, but not THIS big

Agreed, awesome statue!
The only that looks a bit sloppy is the cape though IMO, although that's only from the back, and won't be visible anyway when displayed.

I also finally got both Hush volumes yesterday, looking forward to reading them. :)

That is one nice-looking statue indeed. Agree about the cape though, It probably would have looked better without the folds. Pieces like these make me wonder when we'll get a sculpt of a quality like this from DC Direct. If only they would give their license to Sideshow, life would be complete.:(

God I want one. I emailed Fenix but received no response. According to his post on SF he wants to continue the line with a 1/4 Jim Lee Green Lantern, Flash and Superman.

He's busy with finals in school right now so give him some time. I'm sure he'll get back with you. If not, just keep hounding him until he does.

He did. Fenix if you're watching this thread check your PMs. You rock. :rock

Now that would be something to look forward to. He's off to a very good start. If he makes those other pieces, I might just end up getting this one.

This is awesome on its own. The others would just elevate its awesomeness farther.
