    Hi RPF I am making a Hookshot for a short film and I need some help. The last piece that I need is the actual hook. I am going to weather it and such but I just cannot think of the way to make the hook. The handle is foam covered in aluminium tape, the body is PVC, the chain is...chain. I have leather to make the handle look like the N64 Version.

    I'm not sure how you'd get the diamond profile that it has in-game, but what about EVA with the edges beveled with a dremel? You could sandwich a dowel/pvc between two piece of foam cut in the shape of the hook.

    Is the hook going to be extendable or should it sit just on the base itself?
    If it's going to be static I'd go with the idea harrionp already mentioned: Carving the diamond shape from EVA and glueing a pipe into it which get stuffed in the hookshots base :)
