    I'll try to get some pictures of the inner parts later that show how the suit and cowl mounts are made, and the door-activated lighting and gear lock system.
    Yes please!

    Not really part of the Nolan series, but I couldn't help picking up one of the very last SDSTUDIOS all-metal Batguns. This thing is so boss.







    I haven't forgotten about more detailed closet pictures. It just takes a little preparation since I'll need to remove the suit and stuff to show how it's made

    That is pretty darn cool. Looking like a lot of moving pieces.

    Yes! The launcher separates from the reel, the dart is fully insertable/removable, the handle folds back, the trigger is spring-loaded, and the cable spins freely inside the reel window. The thing weighs a couple of pounds so when you pick it up it really feels like a real, working, handgun of some type. Now I have to find a case or display for it that complements it as well as the closet complements the suit.

    I never realized that the handle folded down. I just figured some of them had handle and some didnt

    gregday, Your Work Is Spectacular. But I Was Wondering Where You Got The Briefcase, Foam Templates, Plaque, And Those Three Blueprints That Are Sitting In The Case In The Second Picture? I Would Be A Big Help & I Would Really Appreciate Your Assistance

    The equipment case is a Pelican 1720 rifle case. The plaque came on the case that my Bronze Armory Begins belt shipped in years ago. That belt and it's case were pretty crap, but I kept the little plaque that Allan made. I would guess any trophy shop or engraver could make one up.

    The foam is the foam that came in the case. One of the reasons I chose the 1720 is that it comes with flat foam instead of egg crate texture. As for the template cutouts for the equipment, an electric carving knife (sold in the hunting section of your local outdoors/hunting store) does a great job of slicing up intricate shapes. Just trace an outline and keep a slow, steady hand.

    The schematic drawings I think came from someone here. Just print em out and laminate them. The belt and grapple ones are pretty accurate. The memory cloth one is fan concept.

    That is simply amazing! It would be awesome to have the closet at home with the Begins suit and gadgets in it. It must truly feel like being Batman!

    If I ever had the money I too, well actually I would have both, but it would cost enough to just buy both a Begins and Dark Knight suit, never mind accessories and building the different storage cases!

    Absolutely incredible! You're an inspiration! I'm a big batman fan and have quite a collection, though not a lot of props. Your post might change that!

    It's nice to see new pictures of your setup!

    For many years this build has been a great source of inspiration for my own collection, and is by far one of the most impressive costume displays i've ever seen.

    Now... TDK aluminum/glass display anyone?

    I need one of those in my life (or as I said both) ... preferably one which comes out of the floor for that "yeh, I'm Batman" moment when friends arent expecting it - I need to get a suit first though!

    My favorite thing is when I see a grown man open the doors, and just burst into uncontrollable joy because they know they are seeing Batman's own suit. It's childlike wonder and it's irreplaceable.
    This was pretty much my reaction from just looking at your photos. Simply amazing. Well done for all the hard, but amazing work!
