Red Robin Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:41616  
Name:Red Robin
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Universe
Creator:JeddTheJedi  
Date Added:August 9, 2012
Base Figure:DCUC Guardian
Height:6.00 inches
When I saw DCUC Guardian figures on clearances, I picked two up as they looked the perfect base bodies for just about anything. Plain, standard superhero DCUC bucks. The cowled head made me think "Red Robin", but I'm not really a fan of the comics look as it was a little close to Dr Mid-Nite. The New 52 version is better, but a little busy. So I went for something of an in-between by losing the cape and tunic, and making the bandoliers narrower. The chest emblem and the belt compartments and buckle was sculpted, and the chest straps and boot details were made from twisty ties. I also made the nose a little more "beak-like" with a bit of sculpt. It was a nightmare to get the red paint on to this. I don't get it, because I washed the figure and even sanded down some of the joints, but the red paint always came out lumpy even after multiple thinner coats. Still, hope you guys like this one.

Hey, thank you very much! I opted to do a version of Red Robin without the cape, partially because the cape is part of what makes him look too much like Dr Mid-Nite. Thanks for your comment!
