I really wanted to vote Sea Captain on creativity alone. Nice work!

Congrats to me :shifty:
Sea Captain (Tales of the Black Freighter)
Head: cast
Torso: Gung Ho with Aves sculpting
Arms: 25th Duke with sculpting
Thighs: Buzzer modified
Lower legs: BFS HACKS with Buzzer pants cuff and sculpting

Raft: sticks, twine, insulation foam, hot glue, Aves for the sail, and Zombie Viper and Toxo Zombie with Rex head (Hi 2DARK2C!)
Shark: squirting bathtub toy which has now been claimed by my daughter

Seeing the Zombie Labs prototypes in person spurred this custom on. While trying to figure out what to do with all those zombies I immediately thought of the raft from the Tales from the Black Freighter (the comic within the comic The Watchmen). The original idea was to make the raft with the zombies underneath being the customs while using a Transforming Hulk Banner figure as the surviving sea captain. While Banner had the overall look, the lack of modern articulation killed that idea quick. luckily my crappy sculpting skills can duplicate ratty uneven asymmetrical clothing really well. :( The head is based on the animated version of the story that plays in the background in the movie.

Comedian 2 by pluv
Dan Drieberg by drbindy
Dr. Mahattan by joemichaels70
Nite Owl by drbindy
Ozymandias by drbindy
Rorschach 1 by drbindy
Rorschach 2 by joemichaels70

So let me get with me and see what topic I'm going to pick for NJC #98. I'm kidding. It is totally going to be Game of Thrones.
