The Mattel Batman Unlimited Arkham Origins Batman figure looks great, and has wonderful poseability from the waist down (double knee joints!), but was severely lacking in the upper body area. I went through and gave the figure a bunch of new articulation. First thing I did was take some pieces from a movie Mr. Fantastic figure and gave Batman double elbow joints. This also still allows for a bicep swivel, and even a swivel at the glove. I’ve also given him a floating ab joint! This took a very long time to carefully get done, but basically it involved a lot of scoring with an X-Acto knife so I wouldn’t have to use two figures. I implanted some parts from a NECA figure and made it all fit, and now Batman can bend forward, backward, even side-to-side! An ab joint is one of the most important on a figure. It can make or break a pose, so I couldn’t let the lack of an ab joint slide. To top it off, I drilled a small hole in his hand and now he can hold a batarang! Batman can’t always rely on his fists, after all. With Batman’s added articulation, he’s now ready to take down the criminals of Gotham City!
