    what can i do i love the watchmen comics,imo its the bible of comics ever- story art everything about it .

    when the movie was released i was realy dissapointed that again (like in the xmen movies) they dont wear super hero clothing but some kind of super hi-tech suits ....

    the movie was very good ,but the toys werent .



    here in slovakia we dont realy get all the stuff on time ,half a year ago in my weekly visit to the toy store i saw a "silver surfer " figure from the marvel universe series .i'm not a big silver surfer fanboy but the minute i saw it- it screamed -dr menhattan.

    then my thick head started working and i decided that i'll try to make al lthe watchmen characters from the marvel universe line .

    some time to scavenge and to buy the figs(took me 3 months to find a black widow on ebay for a sane price and shipping ),after a while that I gathered all the figs , i started working on the desings and color scheme .....

    I tried all the paints i could - enamel doenst glue on the pvc plastic that the marvel universe figures are made from .tamiya acrylics do cling but not as good as i'de want them to , then my salvation came in the jin saotome post about the bulldog adhesion promoter and the P3 paints .

    I ordered me some p3 paints -when they arrived i started working on the figures again .

    in the last week all i was doing was building the accesories and the clothing for those figure , a whole week dedicated to watchmen :) 



    I decided that those will real action figures not just repaints or remoding of other figures,i wanted them to b something that i would definetly buy if i saw them in the store , that meant accesories ..lots of them and gimmicks .



    so here is my weeks labor of love presented ( i'll post oz tomorrow cause there are some issues with him :)

    These are all fantastic! There was a lot of creativity and love here and it shows in the quality of your work! My favorites are Nite Owl (awesome use of Q-Tips for the goggles!) and Rorschach. The inclusion of the alternate unmasked head for Rorschach is a great idea. Bubastis also looks fantastic. You did a great job with the sculpting there. I also want to say that the inclusion of chest hair and arm hair on The Comedian really puts it over the top! It's "little" details such as those that take it from a good custom to a great custom!

    The only suggestion that I could possibly make is to paint The Comedian's head in the same skin tone that you used for his arms/chest. The color difference there makes it look a little off, IMO.

    Again, fantastic job here! I haven't been this impressed in quite a while! :thumb

    Great work! Two suggestions though. Either add a dong to Manhattan or paint those black tanga panties he wore at some point. And try for a more detailed paint of Rorschach's face. The entire point of his character is that the colors never blend, it's all black or white, so you should try to reflect that. Right now it looks like a messy skull deco.

    OK.. I'm not a fan of watchmen at all. But WOW amazing work Daniel!

    Only gripe.. the comedians face being drastically different skin tone than the body

    Why do I love seeing action figures kicking other action figures in the crotch so much?
    Really outstanding stuff there! The sculpting is all very impressive, especially since you haven't done much like this before. The Nostalgia bottle is a great idea. I'd like to see a little mini diorama for it with a Martian sky behind it and the drops flying out.
    I'd echo what others have said- match up the Comedian's head and Manhattan should have the thong or the dong.

    While I get what you're saying, to me it feels like it captured the dots shifting around.

    Really like your take on the Comedian and Rorschach's unmasked head. Nice job. I agree Manhattan probably needs his black trunks if you're not going to go the other way with him.

    wow man!! Great work with the comedian's new skin color! :)  Looks awesome!! Ozzy looks good too! Though his head does look as if it might be a tiny bit squished (but it could just be the hair compared to the other watchmen you've crafted!)
