Back in January of this year, we reported on an incredible 3D printed Batman suit that was created by Gauntlet FX, Crimson Coscrafts and Tundra Design. The creation, which garnered the attention of Batman fans everywhere, still remains one of the top cosplay designs we’ve seen created through the use of 3D printing technology to date.
This design may just have a challenger though, in the form of yet another Batman suit. This one was created by a company out of Galway, Ireland, called Order 66 Creatures and Effects, with the help of the same people who made the other suit back in January. In fact, Order 66’s Julian Checkley got help from Gauntlet FX and Tundra Designs for the 3D printing aspects of his suit. Checkley’s Batman: Arkham Origins suit features armor made from 3D printed urethane. These parts were digitally taken straight from the computer game, in order to replicate the real suit as closely as they could.
As you can see in the photos, this suit features quite a bit of armor, and this is one reason why it took Checkley and team about a month to complete. Along with the 3D printed armor, it also features an incredible working fireball gauntlet which almost magically shoots balls of fire, as well as a wrist computer that displays a loop of the SONAR POV from the video game.
The suit even comes with some of Batman’s favorite gadgets, such as folding Batarangs, and sharp gauntlets, but the fireball gauntlet has to be the most entertaining aspect of them all. It has the ability to fire 4 flaming shots in succession. Check out the video of this in action below, in slow motion (full-speed video is at bottom of this article).
Late last week, the Order 66 crew spent the evening taking “action shots” of their newly created 3D printed Arkham Origins suit, and thanks to the wonderful work by photographer Kamil Krawczak, we all have some photos to drool over. Fan reaction to this suit has thus far been overwhelming for the team of designers.
“This is who should’ve designed the Batman suit for the Batman vs Superman movie because that is the best realistic Batman suit ever. Give that man a raise,” wrote Batman fan Brandon Stewart.
