This is the famous weapon of the superhero Batman, Batarang, based on the movie "The dark knight"!

Quote:

A batarang is a roughly bat-shaped throwing weapon used by the DC Comics superhero Batman. The name is a portmanteau of bat and boomerang, and was originally spelled baterang. Although they are named after boomerangs, batarangs have become more like shuriken in recent interpretations. They have since become a staple of Batman's arsenal, appearing in every major Batman television and movie adaptation to date. Recent interpretations of the Dark Knight finds additional motivation to use the batarang as a ranged attack (alternative to firearms, which he rejects outright due to the circumstances of his parents' murder) and is used primarily to knock guns out of an assailant's hand.



Here are the screenshots of the 3D printed model!

Nice looking prop, but a couple of notes of caution: be wary if you intend to market it as a 'batarang' or the IP lawyers may go after you; also Shapeways might see a stainless steel version as a 'weapon' and not be inclined to print it - it might be best to keep it in plastic or alumide.

Would like to see the WSF version with a couple of coats of metallic enamel paint, see how closely you can match the finish of the movie version.

A 1:1 scaled stainless steel knuckleduster ?
C'mon. ^^

Even without sharp blades (like the "original"), that's a weapon.

But it's not a miniature... Wink

In my opinion it's a weapon - but it's not my decision.
You can try it... if the model gets rejected, it's not hard to guess why.

If the measurement markings are centimeters (65mm width is small) and the model made in one of the plastic variants, the worst it would do is choke someone if they tried to eat it.

However, if the measurement markings are inches, then printed in a plastic variant would make the model a 'movie prop replica' - just watch out for IP infringement. FreakingRiddle your best bet would be to make the model, upload it (keeping the model set to private) and ask Shapeways Customer Services for a definitive answer.

Looks pretty cool. How come your model size says 2.1 inches and the one you show is 5? Did you change that?

At the image above, the model size is in centimeters not inches! You can press the "cm" button under the preview instead of "in" and then you will get this : 5.3 w x 1.8 d x 0.1 h

Hope I helped you and thanks for the feedback! Smile
