What template did you follow? Does the Takara cape have as many curves like the 2nd last cape?... It's just I cannot help but think of the 60's Batman with so many short curves...

I used the Takara batman cape and followed it perfectly... if anything I made it bigger for the original costume and made it floor length for the TDK version

Shows you how bad my memory is then. :)

I don't think I've ever laid the Takara cape out flat.

you should take pictures of the neck with the cape on.......

you also should include an shorter version (their are people who still prefer a shorter version for the TDK suit)

I am making capes accordingly. If you prefer the short TDK cape that is fine and I can also make longer ones. It is which ever the individual prefers. Also I do not have a TDK batman anymore as I am waiting on the DX Batman. I did have the Medicom batman which I had attached a custom cape and also a hot toys TDK batman which I also attached a custom cape and they all turned out great with the same sort of connection.

Exceptionally. Especially the way lforigno is tailoring it. Just pop off the head and neck and replace.

Exactly. Just remove the head and there will be a whole in the cape just put the cape right over the long neck adapter and then put the head back on.... your done.

I just made another update TDK cape. One of the things I did not like about the buddylee capes or the Hot toys capes was how they looked when conected so I came up with this idea. The cape on TDK suit in the movie angles in the shoulders so I came up with this rough cape it is not trimmed yet and that way it would angle inwards instead of outwards. Anyways let me know what you think:

would love to see it first on a figure to decide of buying one or more :)
Also is the material like the buddylee or more like the medicom?

neither it is much softer, it is thin like buddylees but much softer and looks more like the material from the movie.

lol are you joking? :)

just pop the head off :duh
Hell, I even did a mod, by CUTTING a piece of the front neckpiece and glue the 2 cape holders to the mask :)
you must think I am crazy now :)

I just find it so funny that you acutally ask this, like its a big deal :p
because it isn't, removing the cape is as hard as posing the figure :)

anyway here is my HT BATMAN with modifications and a takara cape.

@lforigno:
are you going to post some pictures of the neck with the cape on?
because dude, imo I can only conclude wheter it is good or not if the cape actually sits on the figure...
I am still waiting for a picture of the back and how that looks...(on a Begins batman since you do not have a TDK batman)

Pennyworth
09-02-2009, 02:28 PM
^agreed. I'm interested in a longer cape for my HT TDK Batman but I would want to see the fit around the neck. I guess I can wait until one can be photographed on a TDK Bats. Also, I must of missed it - what is the cost of these?

Thanks man.

lforigno
09-02-2009, 02:31 PM
Here is what a custom TDK cape would like like length on a figure. You would have to tuck in the ends of the cape but here you go:

http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg29/lforigno/IMG_0168.jpg

The capes are 25 dollars shipped to most places. Also I am only making these until I run out of material and then im done. I will keep some for myself as I will be making more for future batman figures.

09-02-2009, 02:34 PM
thx

but how would that same angle look like with the mask on...?

09-02-2009, 02:36 PM
The cowl would not affect the one above. (Correct me if I'm wrong bud! :D)

That is the TDK ver cape lforigno is showing us.

one question though, how would I go and attach those pins of the DK version to slide it into the figure (loving the look of http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg29/lforigno/IMG_0169.jpg) might consider buying one of those for both of them if there is enough material

The cape clips on the original costume version would come off and be glued to the cowl with cape fitting sround the long neck adapter and the head on top of it. For the TDK version batman I designed the cape to have 2 ends that would go where the current capes are at. Just PM me if you are interested. Thanks

vodoun
09-06-2009, 08:44 AM
Can't wait to fit my original suit cape. How did you make the neck area for it, same as the Takara and slit a hole?

I'm hoping I can salvage the pins and pop them back in with the new cape.

@TheDarkKnight_NL, I used some thin pieces of cardboard with double sided tape like pretend plastic lugs that were easy to jam into the clip holders on TDK suit. As it kept the extra fabric areas straight going into the holders. While making it easy to allow you to pull them back out.

I made it the same way as the takara cape. The cape is designed for the cape clips to be accurately attached to the cowl.

I'm sorry I don't have a dark knight batman anymore as I am waiting on the DX batman. I ha a modified hot toys batman and dark knight medicom batman but sold in anticipation for the new one. I mailed out dome dark knight version capes the last couple days so probably within the next week-2 weeks images will pop up. Thanks

yup it is basically that easy and improves the look of the figures to have more of a realistic look which makes them look leaner and slimmer as well which greatly benefits the TDK batman

Heh, where's Dally when you need him. I think he posted pics in far far away land dismantling it. It's that long ago I can barely remember. When they arrive I think if I can get those clips safely off I'll make triangular pieces out of putty.

Probably wise as we know how rare it is but I wont be using any glue either. I know how it would feel if something got messed up or devalued it. It would be heart breaking. I'll use a teeny bit of sellotape or double sided tape to attach the custom made triangular pieces so the originals are in no way damaged. That way everything can be easily put back together with no damage done.

I still haven't even really looked at how the clips are attached yet. Still waiting on the capes when they do.

lforigno
09-13-2009, 08:50 AM
snake used the rayon..... the same material I used for mine. It is the stuff that falls more naturally. I did not even bother making any in the thicker polyester because it was just not natural so I threw it out.

Received my OC cape today, super fast shipping
So I just pull the head off and then I (gently) take the triangular pieces out right ?? (Don't want to destroy the suit)

Thanks again lforigno

lforigno
09-16-2009, 06:38 AM
no problem guys and also a quick word. These capes CAN be ironed. If you receive them and they are wrinked at all adjust your iron to the setting rayon. They you are golden. Thanks

vodoun

Real chuffed with the overall appearance with the short TDK cape on my customized Medicom. It takes the figure to a whole new level. All thats missing is PERS.

The Buddy Lee capes were fanatastic, still are. However, I felt as MaulFan also said they were too light on the shoulders. Like womens black lingerie. Too silky light.

lforigno's has a lovely thickness to it. Realistic thickness and not see through that I can tell.

The old Medicom cape doesn't appear to be stitched to the figure itself. Well it is partially but to leatherette strips that were glued in below the carbon kevlar pieces. Had to cut and fish out with a craft knife to get the remaining excess out before I fed in the new cape lugs.

I can't wait until I finish decorating to get my display units/diorama pieces built etc etc

Cheers, lforigno!

Damn you vodoun, you're always an inspiration for me for updating the Medi Bats. :)
Lou's cape looks wonderful on the Medi, now I'm ordering a cape too.

With regards to the Dark Knight suit - use something thin and pointy to simply push the matrial into the holes in the suit and wedge it in there - once your figure is sitting on your shelf, the cape won't come out.

Alternatively - you can use some very small tie wraps - make two holes in the cape where it is to be attached to the figure - secure the tie wraps through the holes (trim them down so they are very small)and then you have two make shift cape hooks. Push those into the holes in the suit until they disappear.

Everyone that has ordered one up to this point has been shipped. While making the last of the capes today I realized I only have enough for 2 more. I know I was asked to save some material by some members but after the next 2 capes I will not make anymore UNLESS I get multiple people to commit before buying more fabric. I am not making much of a profit off of this because the fabric is a seasonal fabric and is 14.99 a yard and then I have to buy rotary blades so often to make sure I get a clean cut. So I have 2 more left if anyone is interested. Let me know

Thanks,
Lance

Was just looking at the capes. Is the Dark Knight cape ends indented (like the bat wings if you know what I mean) like the actual cape or even like all other capes (superman cape).

I used the hot toys dark knight cape as a template so they are as accurate as the hot toys ones are in terms of design.

I will only be making TDK style capes with this material and they are 30 dollars shipped first come.

no :'( I placed my order before that but heck what I dunno I won't miss but thanks for reminding me :banghead
no but seriously now that I don't have those two chunks on the shoulder he looks so much more real :D
My problem is that my TDK is with my tumbler and is difficult to access with the TV above it so I don't get to play with it much.. BUT I bought TWO capes so I can use the second one with my Medicom and later the DX02 :lol... I kinda regret not getting a third one but then I will have to pick one of these bats to dissect in the future so two capes is enough

Just wondering if anyone is having this problem besides me. It's not really a problem but an annoyance. It's not lforigno its just the fabric in general. Is anyone elses "tips" at the end of the cape curling? You know what I mean the corners that are at the bottom of the cape so they look like bat wings. Mine keep curling and it's annoying me. I know its the fabrics fault but is there anyway to keep them from curling up?

Have you tried ironing the cape. The fabric is rayon so adjust your iron and wet the fabric and iron it, it should be fine after that.

No I didn't. I hadn't thought of that. I love the cape. Just didn't want to ruin it.

Thought I'd just put these up since it shows the material in better light how soft the wrinkles are as well as how it flows and sits on the shoulders with the correct thickness.

I design the cape to have 2 ends that are pretty long and get thicker as it gets closer to the actual cape. Just put each of the two ends into each slot where the original cape goes. Once it is in all of the way it should stay there or you could do what snake did where he used old cape clips.

Hey Lance! I was just curious if I was able to grab one of those last TDK capes from you. Afraid I might have been too late.

kpbradley
02-22-2010, 04:06 PM
I sent your payment for the cape (30 bucks) a few days ago. I was just curious if I got one of the last capes, or if you were making a whole new batch. And, if you already sent it out, how long does it usually take?

lforigno
02-22-2010, 04:41 PM
yes I got your payment and your cape went out today. I use first class postage in the US and international. You will be getting it fairly soon.

Wow. Just, wow. I got it in the mail on Friday and immediately put it on him (after ironing it). Using a pair of tweezers I got it in there in maybe 2 minutes, and... whoa.

It hangs and moves just right, all without any issue. Thank you man.

You don't have to iron the cape. Mine was just a tad crumpled when I got it in the mail. Just a couple swipes with the iron and the cape was totally smooth.

You could also throw it in the dryer for a few minutes, too. It's just one piece of fabric (no clips) so no problems.

Hey Forgino! Thats cool man but would you mind posting more pics of whats these capes will look like. I know you were working with 2 or more different materials at one point and we've seen so many different pics from members that I think some, like myself, may be interested but would like to see exactly what we'd be getting.

Breakersrevenge: What did you use to insert the cape into the suit? Did you use the pegs that came with the original cape? I usded the cape pins that came with the original cape with the V1 Batman, and you can see the pins. It's so unnatural.

I am using the material that I liked the best, which is a rayon and spandex blend. It gives it a realistic look. I will refer to vodouns nice pics for reference:

Just thought since the DCD batch is set to be released next week, this thread could use a bump!

And after seeing how the stock capes that come with the figure look on the DX02, a custom will surely be needed for me.

Lforigno are these still available?

lforigno

I have been getting lots of requests to make these again. I can order more fabric if need be. But because I have no fabric currently and not cutting the fabric by hand so that every edge is perfect I am charging 30 dollars for a TDK cape and 40 dollars for a begins cape. I can order as much fabric as I need so anyone who wants one can get one.

please send payment to Lforigno@gmail.com and just put your username in the subject along with what version.

I could use a little help here. What are you guys using to get the cape tips all the way into the holes on his chest? I tried using tweezers, but it;s not working too well. I still have to get the tips in farther down to not have a huge v on his back.
Thanks alot!

I was looking forward to rubbing it in everyones faces! :lol

J/K ;) Everyone should have access to this fine product!



Just got mine today. Still at work right now, so I will first get to "play" with it tonight. Once I figure out how to attach it (I had been planing on the watch screwdriver method) I will post pics.

OK, I love the cape, but it just won't get it in there deep enough no matter how hard I push it in!
(thats what she said)
Anyway, How far down did you push the cape points in? Should I trim down the cape tips, then I wouldn't have to push the cape in so much?
Thanks!

how does the cape stay in is what I wanna know?? I got one too after i said it was silly to get a custom cape because the HT one is fine. But I always thought Lance's work was great... so I don't regret it. have not got it yet but still don't see how its not gonna be slipping out all the time.

You just stuff it in where the clips go [the fabric ends up behind the chest plates i think]. This works surprisingly well. And it allows you to play with the look a bit. Like if you tuck more of the lateral sides of fabric in it will look different than if you tuck the medial sides in further [This may not make sense until you have seen the design in person]. Also, you can make it different lengths (within reason).

And don't worry, although it's not hard to pull it out on purpose, it will never "slip out" even when reposing etc.


Here's mine. :rock

Hey guys im new here so cut me some slack :1-1:
im expecting my figure to arrive June 30.
So i don't even have it yet and im already
considering getting this because of the fat bulky cape
that comes with the original.

So i don't have any experience with the figure itself
and im a bit worried that i wont be able to put your custom the cape in
correctly. Because as much as i like the cape iv seen people
with your cape on other forums and vids(your cape empire stretches
far and wide) when the v is so big it doesn't really look that cool.
but attached correctly it does :clap

Im really considering buying it but how do i pay for it? pay-pal or something i cant pay through credit cards i don't have em
so i need some clarification on that.I really am willing to buy one
but i saw in your post that you don't have material's anyway
sen a message :thud:

Good evening Lance

This is my first post on this forum. I just started my collection of Action figures a few months ago. I have already gotten The Joker DX, Leonidas, Predator 1 and Hellboy. I just got my Batman TDK DX from BigBadToys. I loved your custom cape.
How should I proceed to get one? Can i just go ahead and sent payment through PayPal?
By the way, I am in Toronto/Canada.

Thanks in advance

Rick

I recommend the cape. When inserted properly the V looks great. You just use something small to poke the cape into the holes where the clips for the Hot Toys cape go. It takes a couple tries to get it right, but once you do, it is worth it. :)

Send a Private Message to lforigno. He responds quickly.

I payed with Paypal.

How do your capes attach to the figure? I hate the way the HT capes attach (the hook that you have to jam under the chest plate is a horrible design).

I design the capes with 2 tabs which are just fabric. You carefully put them into the slots and the cape will stay

I just got this in thanks Lance I love it! I was trying to argue that it wasn't worth replacing as the HT was fine as is but as a former naysayer I can vouche that it's worth it it helps the look of the figure a bit.

Craftsmaship was quite well done I was impressed!

Get lance's cape guys I originally wanted one for OC batman months ago but didn't want to mod the figure.

The cape situation is easy as pie for the DX... Just stuff the ends in the slots with a toothpick, keep stuffing until the v is not too big at the back. It stays in just fine without those HT clips.

It does not exactly totally make the figure per se, but it might always bug you knowing there is a better cape option out there
