Custom Batman Cape Needed

Postby destroyer4147 » Mon Dec 03, 2012 9:58 pm

I'm sure a lot of people have had this problem, so without having to go through every customs shop and sending emails etc.etc... I need a dark blue batman cape because "Catcycle City Chase" doesn't come with one. Instead, it comes with a plastic glider which is really awkward to use as a cape. I don't wanna shell out $6.00 for one cape on bricklink, so which shop would have what I'm looking for?

MMCB has what you are looking for. There is no minimum and they comes from Australia. They have a nice selection of items and lots of colors to choose from. The quality is perfect. While you are there, you might as well get some of you other heroes and villains something to wear.

Do you just need a dark blue cape or does it have to have the batman logo on it?

If just plain dark blue, you can go to [url]http://www.bricklink.com/store.asp?p=dingraham]Cape Madness[/url] on Bricklink.

His quality is awesome. I just posted a review of them on TBB this morning.

I just saw that post on TBB about CapeMadness after I posted my reply. They look like they have some nice stuff. I think what the OP needs is the Batman style cape with the pointed bottom like the official minifig has. CapeMadness doesn't seem to have that style.

You are absolutely right and they don't. I keep forgetting about the pointy bottom on those capes.

I know for a fact that Dave has been working on batman capes w/ the pointy bottoms on them. Just because they aren't in the store, doesn't mean he doesn't have them. I would definitely contact him first if you are in the USA and don't want to pay for shipping from AU.

Yah I think Dave can make just about anything and will do custom work if you make it worth his while :D

Well, this guy specifically is saying he doesn't want to drop $6 for an official TLG cape. I think that Dave (Cape Madness) already has a design made for these and pretty sure he's got dark blue ones so they probably are pretty affordable. He even has a Batman cape made of a leather-type fabric that is really cool if you want more than just one cape.

Check him out. He'll hook you up.

thanks for all the help guys!

I'll most likely get the one from MMCB, but I like some of the things in the bricklink store and i'd definitely consider getting stuff from both sources.
