After Mattel announced the cancellation of 2014 DCIE series that included 2 versions of Doomsday figure, I felt regret about not being able to see the long awaited figure released. Then just last week, I found out Mattel has decided to release only Containment Suit Doomsday in the next SDCC. Relinquishing a hope to see THE UNLEASHED VERSION, I decided to make my own doomsday that shares the same articulations and details to some degree with DCUC figures. The only base body that I could find compatible in terms of size and similar physical features was Marvel Select Avengers Hulk. Before I began putting things together, I had to research various images and old custom figures done by others as a reference.
My ideal Doomsday is a combination of classical appearance with a slight touch of Injustice version, especially on his facial expression and tusks on both shoulders, which I find him more aggressive and vicious. I knew from the start there would be a lot of time consuming labors required for sculpting and refining, but I finally got all done in a month. As a result, it turned out better than I expected. Here are the recipes:
Head: Marvel Select Ultimate Hulk [cut his jaw in half and reconstructed to plant the teeth]
Body: Marvel Select Avengers Hulk [shaved off big & little toes (Ouch!) to make his boots looking more slender in front]
Waist band: old neon bracelet found in fodder box
Head to toes including tusks and spikes all sculpted with Aves Apoxie Sculpt.
Hope you guys like it. Any comments and criticisms are welcome.
