The DC Direct Infinite Crisis series Power Girl figure is a nice sculpt. Its articulation isn't very impressive, though. And, although it is a nice sculpt from head to toe, I don't like the style of the lower body. So, I attempted to make a Power Girl that looks and has articulation more like I want it to using various figures.

Here's a look at some of the steps it took to rebuild, modify and sculpt the customized Power Girl action figure.

I used a Masters of the Universe Classics Adora figure for the lower body and arms. The Adora figure is technically in a different scale than the Power Girl figure, but I think it at least sort of works, and her legs look well in proportion to the DC Direct Power Girl. In order to use the DC Direct figure torso on the Adora figure, the DC Direct figure has to be modified using a Dremel tool to reshape it into something similar to the Marvel Legends Black Cat figure torso that I use to compare it to in the pictures. When the parts are combined, it does make the customized figure a little taller than the DC Direct Power Girl, but it's not very noticeable when the figure is posed. Gluing the pegs neccessary to use the Power Girl gloves on the Adora arms was a chore. After all of that stuff, the figure was completely repainted using paints and techniques that help ensure the paint stays as durable as possible.

This is amazing and realistic, reminds me of the costume chicks you see at a comic book convention!

Hellza yeah this works. Hip/thigh articulation makes for a much better and poseable figure. Gets my vote for best looking Power Girl custom.

Thanks, man. I decided to make the boots and gloves different shades of blue, and I think it works ok.

I always like that Power girl figure sculpt..really glad someone was able to make her more articulated..great job bro

Thanks, man. I had to make a bit of a compromise with the look of the legs at the hips and the articulation, but it is difficult in general to create very nice looking hip articulation. I did attempt to add some sculpting material to the hip area, but it both gets in the way of the articulation and doesn't stay on there well.

Kudos on the attempt and figuring out a way to get that lower area articulated on the best looking Power Girl figure

To say she's sexy would be an understatement....This Power Girl is perfection! The work you did to make her more articulated and well proportioned using an Adora figure too is really impressive. You've surely made the best Power Girl on the realm.

Magnificent praise, indeed! Thanks, man. I dunno if she is the best, but I definitely tried to have her doing her part to represent sexy Power Girl figures lol.
