Crime fighting is also about them women.
That's why the eggheads in the labs miles below our ranch came to their conclusion: If MATTEL wasn't going to make Female Action Figures (and they weren't), we were.
And we did.
We began with our mission statement: To make a woman that would fit the scale and spirit of our modified BRAVE AND BOLD show male figures. That meant:
1) Scale wise, the female figure had to look proportionate to the male figures in height and size.
2) The figure would need to be a standard "buck" that could be slightly modified for different female characters, similar to the method MATTEL used for the male figures.
3) No damn hex plugs!
Next, we began searching the pegs and the internet to see if there was anything out there that could give us a leg up. After months of poking around, we finally found her:
|Our Patron Figure|
She wasn't cheap, but The Batman Selina Kyle figure had minimal detailing in the sculpt, allowing for a generic body type that could be modified to fit most of the B&B characters we wanted.
Our next step was to carefully remove the sculpted collar from the figure and create a series of molds:
|Boxing Selina (someone call Fred Hembeck!)|
With about 30 fl oz of rubber, we made everything we needed to populate Gotham.
