Wonder Woman (Kryptonian Style) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:58726  
Name:Wonder Woman (Kryptonian Style)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Wonder Woman

Date Added:February 24, 2014
Base Figure:Man of Steel Movie Masters Faora
Height:5.80 inches
I bought a spare Faora figure loose and remembered that when I first saw the figure, I thought it might make a decent base for a stylised Wonder Woman. There have also been (rather troubling) rumours that Wonder Woman in the Batman vs. Superman film will be of Kryptonian descent. While I can't vouch for the veracity of that rumour and while I don't really like the idea, I think that visually, a Wonder Woman wearing a suit of armour with Man of Steel Kryptonian influence could be interesting. I really didn't think this would work and wanted to give up several times but am relieved that I got it to work.

I ripped out the cape (filling in the resulting gap) and several armour pieces like the giant shoulder pads, and also removed, trimmed and re-attached the belt. I also did a whole bunch of dremelling, particularly to the collar and removed the parts where Faora's helmet would connect to her outfit, re-sculpting the resulting hole in her chest. I sculpted the "W" symbol onto the chest plate. I rummaged through my fodder bin and really struggled to look for the right head and finally settled on Storm from the X-Men movie. The head was completely modified so it could fit onto the neck peg. Total repaint and a sculpted-on tiara with the star in the centre. I also cut the fringe of the hair and painted it black. The right hand is from a Star Sapphire Wonder Woman and the left hand is from a Big Barda. A really important factor in getting it to remotely work as Wonder Woman was the colour scheme, so I went all-out with traditional Wonder Woman colours. For the accessories, I wanted to create a shield and used the DCUC Guardian shield as a base. It does look a lot more old-fashioned than the rest of the figure but I think that it works in the end. The sword was from a Spider-Man 3 New Goblin; it bears a bit of a resemblance to the Kryptonian dagger that Faora uses in Man of Steel. The lasso of truth was from a Star Sapphire Wonder Woman. Thanks for having a look!

Terrific original design, and from a Faora, that's cool! I especially like how you painted the "WW" on her armor, so clean.

Thanks! The "WW" symbol was sculpted, glad you think it looks clean! I'm not great with sculpting and am always trying to get better at it.
