This guy looks interesting. Looks like you may find him on Cloud City wandering around. What did you use for parts?

I know some of you make casts for action figure accessories. I was wondering if anyone can shrink accessories from a 12" Multiverse Wonder Woman to fit 1:12th or 6" figures. There's a 12" Multiverse Wonder Woman figure that comes with 3 different sets of bullet ricochet effects, cast in a translucent yellow plastic. They would be awesome to use with a 6" SC Universe Classics Wonder Woman or a 6" Multiverse movie Wonder Woman. Any suggestions or information would be awesome.

Shrink casting is pretty easy. It's the same as ordinary casting except you use the right formula that has the correct shrinking ratio. Wanna show me which figure you're talking about? I might have some useful information.

Ah, I think I know which one you're referring to. Is it this one?

Yes Acid, that's the exact Wonder Woman, that I'm talking about. It's a great concept, the bullet ricochet effects pieces! I can't understand why they didn't carry that gimmick over to the 6" Multiverse movie Wonder Woman, too. I don't own the 12" figure, and I don't think I'm attempting casts or casting, though.
I don't know about drilling holes into a 6" Wonder Woman's wrists, since the 12" figures pieces attach with small holes in the wrists. Perhaps there's a better way to attach those translucent pieces on the smaller figure. Maybe attached to a small wire, that wraps around the back of her wrist gauntlets. Just brainstorming.... :wwhuh:

I would think the holes are way more prominent when it's on a 6 inch figure. :batsad:

I have the 12" one and those holes are big on that one...if you have a small enough magnet (not sure how small they get) otherwise there's the good ole glue option
