(I'm not completely sure is this right theme forum, but if I remember right, unofficial licences go to other themes)

I have been getting into Miniland scale building lately. After some contests in our Finnish LUGs, I tried to build characters from Alan Moore's and Dave Gibbon's graphic novel Watchmen. I made the main characters expect Doctor Manhattan, beacause I don't own a lot light/medium blue bricks.

From left to right, Silk Spectre II, Nite Owl II, The Comedian, Rorschach and Ozymandias.

Close-ups:
The Comedian, probably the easiest of the bunch to build.

Nite Owl II, the cape was quite hard to build.

Ozymandias. The costume was pretty hard ro build because those 2x3 wedge plates were my only purple pieces.

Very creative MOC pig! Even at Miniland-scale these figs are instantly recognizable as the Watchmen characters due to the pretty clever detailing. I particularly like Nite Owl's distinct inverted-triangle forehead and the use of headlight bricks for Rorschach's buttoned cape. Great job! :thumbup:
