    What's wrong with Batman, why does it need touch ups? I think he looks fantastic. Looks like it's the long neck version so hopefully the member will have Dr. Mego issue the replacement.
    Likewise, Batgirl looks great!

    Thanks for the comments.
    I'm probably doing something wrong, but trying to paint on these heads with my brushes and acrylics is difficult. I washed down to ensure no tooling oils present, but trying to brush details challenged me. I struggled trying to find a paint mix that flowed good, as well as being absorbed/accepted by my brushes.
    Challenging to say the least.

    ^It may be that factory finish isn't flat enough. Maybe try swabbing the area to be painted with rubbing alcohol to denude a bit?

    Batman looks better with the nose and eybrows, IMHO. YMMV.
