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 :)

2 things

1) welcome to the forum, it's always nice to see new people, and we've had 2 in the last couple of weeks including you! that's good going, for over a year after the movie.

2) those custom figures sound really good, and once photobucket loads i'll beable to see.

just loaded, and those are pretty good! Bubastis one is excellent! rorschach silk spectre and dr m (so cool that you got glow in the dark paint!) are probably the better human ones, not to say that the others are bad though, the comedian's body is really good, but his head looks slightly too big, and slightly the wrong colour, and nite owl's body and head are great but his cape is kind of weird. maybe if you made it out of fabric it might hang better.

but still, it's amazing work, and much better than i could do.

fair enough. it might look better if it hung straight down as opposed to flaring out though

as you can see it hangs, not sure how you'd achive that with plastic though.
