I'm looking for a camera for my Marvel Spiderman, like the one in the picture. Do any of you guys know where I can find a good, in-scale camera for him? Thanks

The DC Direct Jimmy Olsen came with a camera:

But I've found if you just search ebay for dollhouse scale household items you'll find stuff pretty reasonably priced. You'd be amazed at what they have in scale for dollhouse collectors and the stuff works perfect with six inch figures. That's how I got a violin for my Fiddler custom. I just searched on ebay and you should be able to find something for under $10, cheaper than what that DCD figure would run you.

Good idea Packer. I have bought dollhouse accessories from Ebay before, but I didn't see anything like the camera(with a strap) like in the Spidey and Olsen cameras. I wonder if the Disney Store Marvel Select Spiderman's camera would be too big.

I'm looking for a robot hand for a custom 6" Black Series old Jedi Luke, from the end of Force Awakens. Maybe a cast of a T-800 robot hand from a Terminator action figure. I checked with Casting Cave, but they don't have any. Any ideas or help? Thanks

Maybe try shapeways.com, someone there might have something.

I think Toy Biz Peter Parker came with one that would fit the bill

When did Peter Parker have a robot hand?

Hahaha!I think Slinger meant the camera that I was looking for, not the robot hand. LOL

The Idiot needs to buy more sculpting material....my query is thus: which is better; Aves Apoxie sculpt OR Aves FixIt sculpt?

I've been using Aves Apoxie since I started and is wondering if Fix It yields better results?
I am one of the 63%....

I've used milliput since day one mostly because I can get it readily at Hobby Lobby for $4 or so. I've never had an issue with it.
