While I love the sculpt of the DC Direct Super Friends Batman figure, the paint they used was fairly inaccurate to the show models. This custom is a simple repaint to better match the toon. Batman’s overall grey is now actually a subtle lavender, with the blue is a much richer hue. The cape interior is painted black. I had considered reworking the belt, as the amount of capsules changed throughout the show, but in this case I decided to leave it alone. The sculpted belt matched the original model sheet, so that was fine by me.

It was also tempting to do the reversed Batsymbol (yellow bat on a black oval), but that was clearly an animation mistake, as opposed to the simplified logo that Flash sported throughout the show.
