Custom Darth Knight 6″ DC Universe Action Figure (Batman / Star Wars Mashup)- Created March 11, 2012

<< Back to Custom Figure Archive


*** Head on over to my Ebay Auctions to see what’s available this week, or commission me if you’d like your very own custom action figure like this one. ***

Darth Knight has been created using the body from a Dark Knight Movie Masters Batman figure, and the head, lightsaber, chest plate, and other pieces from a Star Wars Transformers Darth Vader action figure.

I transplanted the ears from the Batman head onto the Darth Vader head, and sculpted over them to blend them in with the sculpt of Vader’s helmet. He features a paint job that really helps him stand out as his own concept, with silver accents, and other various parts painted in flat and gloss black.

He has extra Darth Vader pieces attached to his belt, his chest plate has been implanted into Batman’s torso (and he still retains full ab crunch movement!), and his legs have been sculpted over with rectangular plates. He also features the classic Darth Vader waist cloak made from a sheet of vinyl. He comes with his lightsaber as well (or light baton if you wish for him to be as non-lethal as the real caped crusader). He’s based on the costume design by Malmey Studios, but with my own unique flairs thrown in.

  21. In 2005, when I was drunk with anticipation for Batman Begins and Revenge of the Sith, I put together a Geocities site with Darth Vader and Batman as running mates for president. It was pretty badly done, but it was fun. If only your figure had existed then, it would have been a perfect way to promote the ultimate candidates for the US presidency! Of course, Bruce would only run with Vader as a means of getting inside his operation to sabotage it later on…anyway, beautiful work!
