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!!

It's wrapped around her body and it's springy. I just slipped it over her, that's all. It does have a cool floating look to it though.

You mean like this? Great minds think alike. :wink:

Oh, that looks awesome! I have got to get myself a couple of those.

Yep. Exactly like that An-Gel! I'm hoping that they re-release those tornadoes in clear plastic form so that I could use them for a Wind Dragon custom (I'm not sure that Mattel will get to the Ultimen).

If you can make a rubber mold of one, a clear resin casting would be easy. I recommend the pink Mold Builder, it is more resilient for multiple castings.

The green fist is from the Starro box set and no it won't. It is verry picky even among DCIH GL hands which it will stay on. Even so, I hope they make more constructs in their GLcentric release next year.

Those lanterns would make good lunch boxes.

No. It just has to fit the Key's hand. :mrgreen:

Assuming you are talented enough, and I do, some sheet styrene, tube styrene and superglue, make your own, it looks simple enough in the few pics I googled, no real fancy details, spraypaint color of choice and voila.

That's what I've been wondering for a long time. Sure wish The Key would come out as a single with his key. :(

That would be great. You mean the gun thingy he used in "We Are Legion"? I thought that was a neat weapon, in a retro sort of way...

Thank you so much for the larger picture of Livewire An-Gel! I see how it wraps around now...


...now if only I knew someone with a spare! I never collect Star Wars stuff.
