Put a metal cap over the screws on my King Arts Mjolnir and some fun blue weathering. This is what I did about 5-6 weeks ago so not seeing it for a while it’s looking pretty good to me
Asking the experts here: how hard would it be to convert a Hasbro into a decent replica with a good paint job, filling all the holes and removing the switches, replacing the fake leather on the handle etc etc.
I'm thinking of buying one off of eBay and having a go... At least it'll be the right size and proportions...
Very useful perspective thanks!I was looking into possibly doing this. I repainted my Legends Ant-Man helmet and loved how it turned out. I decided to go with a kit from the Project Runs section instead and I can tell you why.. or better yet I can show you.
This looks like a nightmare. Especially if you are going to display the hammer with the bottom side up at an angle like I plan to.

You would have to fill two screw holes either side, 6 pins(?) on the bottom, the power switch, and battery plate. That all needs to be filled and shopped. There is also a button on the handle and writing on the pommel. I wouldn’t say it would be “hard” per-se, but it would certainly take up a good bit of time. Time is money, and a good kit may cost more, but it will save time.. and likely look better to boot!
Just my two cents.
Look at my post #92. Helps a little.Thanks for the pic Mr Moldmaker.The Hasbro looks really so bad from this position.And the cheap plastic feeling gives it the rest.
Thats why I bought the Cattoys...size or not...the look and the massive metalfeeling is so much better.
And about sizes...has someone the correct sizes of the real Hammer?Stunt and Hero?
I don't know if these are accurate they state the hammer is 17" long, but the Hasbro Legend is around 19"75 and it was confirmed to be the same size as the eFX and king arts which are 1:1 to the original prop a couple of posts above.Look at my post #92. Helps a little.
I'm not even sure there's one continuous leather strip on the real prop. I feel like it might be made up of 10 or so small sections stacked up together. That's what the video above kinda shows. I think the sections look like this (found the pic on Google so not mine)
Would be curious to know how the King arts or eFx are built...
