Custom Commissioner Gordon 6″ DC Universe Action Figure – Created Dec 17th, 2012

*** Head on over to my Ebay Auctions to see what’s available this week, or commission me if you’d like your very own custom action figure like this one. ***

While Mattel gave us a good Commissioner Gordon action figure in the Dark Knight Movie Masters line, it’s just far too short and lacks the comic book aesthetics to blend in with DC Universe Classics. A DCUC Gordon is long overdo, which is what prompted this. I made him using the body from a DC Universe Signature Collection John Constantine figure, the head and tie from a DC Direct Hush Gordon figure, and the glasses from a Movie Masters Gordon. Constantine’s tie was loose and ragged looking, hence the change to a more professional look. I painted the pants to resemble tan khakis, and painted his face to cover up that red nose Gordon was sporting before. I gave him some new glasses, since the ones he came with are worthless, gave him his pistol, and now he’s ready to help Batman clean up the streets of Gotham City!

  1. I was literally planning on doing this exact same thing! mad props, looks great! Few questions….
    How’d you get the head to fit? What’d you use to file down the neck on the direct figure? What color paint did you use to match the skin tones?

    • I use a Dremel to sand down parts of figures like the neck and underside of the figure’s head. The flesh tone is my own custom mix using paints from Testors Model Masters. I couldn’t get it 100% the same as the paint on the face, but as long as it’s about 90% then it’s all good.

  2. Love the Commissioner Gordon custom! Did you think about doing a wash on the trenchcoat to bring out the details? If so, what kind of paint(brand/color) would you have used?
