I built it as if it were the horses left and right
Works fine
That’s the only thing that makes sense and it worked

Made a video for it but the old Mattel TDKR head works really well with the McFarlane body. It's a bit bigger than the original head too so the proportions get evened out. On a side note, the horse could really use better instructions on how to assemble it. I don't feel like I should have had to google horse anatomy to make sure I put the right legs into the right spot.

Finally gave up waiting for Target to get Bats in and bought him from Amazon. I LOVE this horse, he's much better than the Witcher Roach horse. Much more dynamic-looking with the wild mane and tail, and the tail is more solid and can act as a stand for raring-up poses. The feet are also much bigger on this horse so he's much easier to stand. Glad to have both, but I prefer this one. Balius from Mythic Legions is still the best twelfth scale horse though.

Question. Anyone tried using the head of Mezco Superman on a TDKR Superman body?

I'd assume it'd be too small. The body for DKR Supes is huge.

I’d think it’d work fine. Mezco heads run large. They are larger than McFarlane heads.

Yeah, they really don't know how to scale heads properly.

If that's in store, that's a YMMV affair, as not all stores mark down the same items at the same time.

Unless you have a picture of it, can’t confirm it.
The only grey and blue Batman we have is the variant armor version that’s been out for a while and reuse in the 2-pack.

Thanks for posting this!

I never see anything on the type of clearances often posted here but I stopped into a Target last night and they had a set for $19.99.

Hey, 2 massive, well-detailed, fun figures for 10 bucks a piece, you can't go wrong.
