Don’t forget to check out the video I made for this custom Doomstroke figure near the bottom of the page to see some exclusive WIP (work in progress) photos!
This one may seem wacky for a lot of you, but trust me Doomstroke is a real character. Not many people remember him, but he appeared briefly in the Superman/Batman storyline “Night and Day”, which took place in an alternate reality where a bunch of DC characters were amalgamated into new ones. I love mashups in general, because they have the potential to yield something truly creative, so I had to make Doomstroke. Most of Doomstroke is made from a DCUC Deathstroke, with some pieces from a DCSH Doomsday. I sculpted the Deathstroke mask over the Doomsday head, as well as the eye patch. The knot and strips on the back of the mask come from a Hasbro ML Elektra. I used the biceps and upper forearms from Doomsday, glued them to Deathstroke’s gloves, and cut the tops off Deathstroke’s biceps and glued them to the top of Doomsday’s biceps so they have a bit of sleeve to them. The rest is just strategic gluing. I removed all the spikes I could from Doomsday and cut them up, and glued them all over Doomstroke. I even added some tiny spikes on his eyebrows to make them more pronounced. I added some nicks and cuts to Deathstroke’s sword and some Doomsday spikes to the pommel and crossguard, then painted it to look like Doomsday’s bony spikes. I also added Doomsday’s belt and attached the sword scabbard and pistol to him. Some dry brushes and washes later, Doomstroke is ready to take on any hero, no matter what dimension they come from!
