    Thanks Wake. I'm curious to see a comparison cause the eyes on mine aren't terrible...and I guess if I wanted to, easily repainted.

    Thanks! A comparison with my reference (w/photoshop! ):



    I can't really sew, so I found the fabric, cut it to size, folded it, and sealed it with iron-on fabric adhesive. Probably should've gone with more of a gold sheen, and honestly, I'd like the knot a bit smaller, but there are limitations with my method. No stripes on my shirt, but I'm fine with it.

    I think the eyes look great.

    I think it looks good. Only criticism would be the suit and/or body looks a little big (especially compared to the head) but that's the same for the official HT figure. Scarecrow needs a Slim TT with a slim fitting suit IMO. And since that's not the case for even the official figure.. it's irrelevant in the comparison. So congrats.. I'm sure you saved a nice chunk of change doing it yourself!

    I would really like to see a book published that shows all of the "technology" that exists in the Nolan Batfilms. Especially when it comes to Begins, we have no clear photos of a lot of the props used - what do Scarecrow's fear gas devices (wrist, briefcase, etc) look like; a clear view of the Waynetech case with the grapel gun and belt in it; how the belt was originally conceived to work with the webbing attached; the closet storing the original suit (although photos of that have surfaced, they certainly weren't made available officially); the layout of the Batcave; and so on and so on.

    You know that pictures of this sort of stuff do exist - there's no way that a film like this gets made without considerable documentation made for continuity, etc - but the fact that we haven't seen any of it is frustrating. I think it probably speaks to Nolan's desire as auteur to take some of the focus (at least in the first film) away from "those wonderful toys", and perhaps also says something about the fact that Begins was a bit of a gamble for Warner and so had a comparatively low budget. I wonder if it's felt that some of the items just wouldn't stand up to close scrutiny?

    That's my long way of saying I want to make the fear gas accessory for my Scarecrow.

    I think part of it may also be Nolan's hesitation in letting you peek behind the curtain of his magic show. He doesn't want people to get much "behind the scenes" information, since he thinks that spoils the fun - hence the lack of really in-depth special features and director commentaries on the DVDs.

    Fair enough. But I've aways been the type of person to be more impressed by how a magic trick works than by the actual trick itself.

    I remembered seeing a mini statue of Scarecrow with what appeared to be the gas canister set up. Here is a pic of the statue:


    It doesn't look to complicated to replicate. I'm thinking a couple of smoke grenades and some tubing up his jacket sleeves, beyond that I'm not sure.

    But is that movie-accurate or an embelishment by an enthusiastic sculptor? If movie-accurate, then where are the reference pictures to support it? If an embelishment then how did it pass licensor review? Not exactly questions that should keep you awake at nights, but I'd still like to know!

    But these questions DO keep me up at night. It's from DC Direct, so who's to say. Either way it's visually appealing, I might try and rig something similar when I do my DK Scarecrow.
