I love how you can have this kind of close up of just his back and arm — no face at all, really — and still just know it’s Cad Bane. That’s one of the great things about this figure. One of the things I learned from late, great Hanna-Barbera artist Iwao Takamoto… if you can recognize a character from their silhouette, you’ve created a memorable character.
