Bruce Wayne goes spelunking

Hot Toys included a head sculpt of Christian Bale Bruce Wayne with their Batman original suit figure from "The Dark Knight". Decided to plonk the head onto Takara's Batsuit for the spelunking scene (the recreational sport of exploring caves) since only Takara released the harness for this.
From "Batman Begins"
Bruce Wayne: [while examining the prototype Batsuit] "Tear resistant?"
Lucius Fox: "This sucker will stop a knife."
Bruce Wayne: "Bulletproof?"
Lucius Fox: "Anything but a straight shot."
Bruce Wayne: "Why didn't they put it into production?"
Lucius Fox: "Bean counters didn't think a soldier's life was worth 300 grand. So what's your interest in it, Mr. Wayne?"
Bruce Wayne: "I wanna borrow it. For, uh, spelunking."
Lucius Fox: "Spelunking?"
Bruce Wayne: "Yeah, you know, cave diving."
Lucius Fox: "You expecting to run into much gunfire in these caves?"
Hot Toys head sculpt is way better than Takara's

did you have to fill out the inside of the head with blue tag to plug the head on, my guru? I recall the takara neck joint is not a perfect fit for hot toys' heads.

hi-ya :) no blue tag required - i did a rather quick switch around with the takara head and surprisingly, no problem whatsoever with the head staying in place. this is the version 2 head that came without neck and not the TDK version, tho i figure you already know that ;p
