Kloner: Adding More Characters to the Line


I know that this site/forum is pretty much dead, but I thought I'd share here anyway.
For the last few years I've been casting, sculpting, drawing, printing, painting, and everything else necessary to make a Supergirl figure which would visually hold it's own next to an authentic Super Powers figure. As Wonder Woman was the sole female figure for the line, naturally I used her as a working base-model. I didn't want to destroy authentic figures through "customization" (and I never liked the look of a repaint), but it was necessary to sacrifice one figure in order to create molds from which I could produce as many "throw-away" pieces as I needed for modification/sculpting. What was fun about this is that it allowed me an opportunity to make some Wonder Woman variations, including the Defender's of the Earth character "Atlanta". Another fun variant is a black suit Wonder Woman (in similar style/concept to the Estrela black Batman).
Anyway, my efforts have moved me far enough along that I am about 98% toward completion with my Supergirl, and I thought I would attempt to share some process photos. If the photos do link here correctly, I will add some more, but for my first attempt at sharing I have included some of my most recent castings. I use my older molds to produce plastic color samples, so the purple character in the photos is simply a test, but I was assembling her at the same time as a Supergirl so she is in the photos. You may note that these figures have all the articulation of the originals, but lack the inner mechanics to allow them their proper "Super Power", and I am therefore using the line "Power Action Lackin" for the card art word balloons.
I would be happy to share images of a finished M.O.C. Supergirl (version 1.0) if there is any interest.
Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, and perhaps I'll have a happy 2019 making more characters...

Thanks for the moral support! I have added two new photos to the linked share-folder. Atlanta and Supergirl on cardback. Supergirl is the 1.0 version (she does not have the finished torso and arms).

Supergirl V2 posted on my shared folder via link above.
I will need to modify the neck ring for the cape (again). I can see why Kenner never did a caped female figure. I will also need to modify my "S" decal to fit this sculpt.
I needed to test a red color plastic sample and thought it would be cool to make a Red Kryptonite Supergirl. Looks interesting so far. Photos will be shared upon completion.

One more photo added to my shared folder. Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Supergirl Red-K, and the purple color test figure in the other photos.
I intended to produce a run of some of these figures, but it appears that my molds (silicon) are breaking down faster than I anticipated.
