Has anyone here made any? I'm just curious because i'm in the process of buying a few Rorschach customs I've found here and there, and I find it interesting that no official action figures were made until now. The DC direct figures look really good, but I was sort of hoping I wouldn't have to go to a comic book shop in order to buy them. But it's not too bad, at least we are getting official figures. Also, why was the comic line cancelled?

I'm working on a custom Rorschach 12" figure with a friend of mine. I should have pics soon.

The original DC Direct figure line in 2000 was canceled because Alan Moore did not approve and at the time DC was trying to not rock the boat.

That sounds awesome, I just bought a concept Rorschach custom from the Absolute Watchmen. I'm also working on a Doc Manhattan, just need to get the right paints. Really sucks that the comic line was cancelled, but I can't say anything bad about Alan Moore...he reminds me of my uncle. lol

Here's a bad iPhone pic of the backdrop I am working on for the custom 12" Rorschach my friend and I have in the works:

To give you a sense of scale, it's about 2 feet high and 3 feet long (24" x 36").

That's a fantastic background there! Especially love the Hiroshima lovers.

I did a Rorschach figure in clay (first time I've worked with the stuff). I posted it in the art thread. Wouldn't mind doing more figures, maybe busts of the characters. Lots of messy fun to be had with clay :)

What kind of material are you going to be using Carl?

The only thing that would make your backdrop better is if the "WWTW?" graffiti were partially obscured by something, like it always is in the book. Maybe you could stick a Nixon re-election poster or Pale Horse handbill over the "-EN?" part, or maybe it could just be half-done as though Rorschach tackled the graffiti-ist before they could finish the tag. But still, bravo!

Yeah that looks very good Carl. I've decided to do a custom Rorschach as well, using a Movie Masters Joker as a base. Now I just need to find a Trenchcoat that will work.

Hurm... that's a good idea indeed! I'll think of something. It's still not finished.

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

I picked up an extra Justice Leauge Unlimited figure of the Question. I might turn it into a Rorschach.

Ya know, that would be a really good idea, I saw that someone on FigureRealm made a custom Rorschach out a Question.

Note: All of the customs shown here are currently up for auction on eBay. You can find them by searching eBay.



I personally made a custom 6 inch Walter Kovacs that is in the same scale as the DC Direct Rorschach figure they made for the movie.

A full description can be found here on my site. The sign is made from a foam sheet that I cut out in the shape and took my hobby knife to it. It's my favorite part of the entire figure.

I also did an entire set of 3.75 inch Watchmen customs. Full descriptions and photos of each custom can be found here.

Here are some group shots (the last one with Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias is photoshopped to make it appear as if he is giant and towering over AOzymandias like in the comic book and movie):

Once I get ahold of some paint and other supplies, I'll convert my Silver Surfer figure into Dr.Manhattan and my Superman figure into Ozymandias. And, I'll turn my Howard the Duck figure into a Rorduck figure.

I felt the Comedian figures needed to be spiffed up! :)
