Can we see another photo of Livewire's accessory? It looks like it's swirling around her hands - super cool! Another photo would really rock, as well as a link to the toy those electricity bolts came with...

Neat! That's the idea!

Now can I see another shot of Livewire with 'em? Sorry for being so demanding...I just can't tell for the life of me how they're attached to her...they look like they're floating around her hands!!

EDIT: Thanks to the side-by-side Shayeras, I can finally pin-point why the Thanagarian version looks so much better than the normal one...her eyes aren't outlined. Nice improvement Mattel!!

Yes! That was a great improvement on Mattel's part with Shayera's eyes. I agree the Thanagarian Hawkgirl looks much better.

LOL! It does seem strange but I like to give Mattel complements when they're due so we can continue to get awesome looking figures. :D

MiniMates Stargirl's star staff works pretty well with the accessory-less Stargirl from the three-pack.

Considering that the staff included with the single is the wrong one, that MiniMate one is good for all of them...

My buddy used a bunch of Power Rangers' accessories as Constructs for his Green, Yellow, Etc. Corps.

They look pretty cool and they came in Green, Yellow, Red, Blue, etc. so multiple corps could join the party.

Sadly, I have no idea which series of Power Rangers had the various pieces of transparent plastic, but I'm sure somebody on here would know.

I did a quick google for them and found these under Power Rangers Jungle Fury.

Very good point. That staff isn't show or comic accurate.

So this thread got me thinking and I did some window shopping today. In the Iron Man line I saw 2 yellow and 1 red accessory that could be used for DCIH Lanterns. I think I will break down and get an Iron Man just for that.

I used the yellow lightning bolt from the new Flash figure as an accessory for the Quardian Weaponer custom that I made.

I think I have only one example of reusing accessories in my collection. I used two of Red Tornado's red tornado accessories on Flash to recreate the whirlwind arm effect that he used in both JL and JLU.

Along similar lines, but not exactly in the spirit of the thread, I also bought 2 Vigilantes and corrected Mattel's grievous error of giving Greg Saunders only 1 six-shooter and holster.

Product review.

I got the Iron Man 2 figure with the yellow repulsor blast today. The figure's ankles are such that it won't stand without a base. The repulsor blast is a soft rubbery clear yellow plastic. It is molded to fit over a fist. It will not work on the DCIH Sinestro Corps Sinestro. It will work on the original black and blue Sinestro with the larger hands. In the Marvel line I saw Iron Fist with a yellow flaming fist accessory and Electro with 2 electrical discharge attachments.
