Hard Boiled-what a piece of work-

the artwork simply blew me away-if anyone hasn't read it then I highly recommend it purely for the artwork if nothing else!!!!Geof Darrow is a genius!!

this book came out in 1990 and even today after numerous readings I still get a HUGE kick from it and I have always wanted to make a figure of Nixon.

I can't believe that no toy company has made it yet-the robots, the gore,the immense attention to minute details, the whole look of the book is something right up the street of ,say,McFarlane or Mezco or someone like that-

Nixon is a robot-a cyborg -with human tissue ,skin,blood etc but a robot skeleton and brain,etc so he can take and dish out a huge amount of punishment -and he does in the 3 book series.

My custom figure is based on the amazing artwork of Geof Darrow-which I drew my inspiration from.

This figure is not entirely comic accurate -it has been one I have wanted for many a year and many prior attempts-but I'm satisfied with this one(so far!!)

Awesome blood effect. I might give him a black eye, but that's just preference. This is perfect, as is.
