So far all the stuff you have done has been really stellar. The amount of work you have put into all of the figures you have made has been impressive. But with the SHIELD agent figure I have one thing to ask, how hard would it be to scale the figure down to a four inch scale? If it (being the figure) was able to retain that level of detail I think the G.I.Joe and Marvel Universe fans would go ape sh!t over them.

Thanks Mer-Man!

 

It would be doable but there's too many downsides to it right now for me to do it.

 

Some of the thinner joints and areas like the wrists would have to be tweaked to be strong enough and the current (cheaper) plastic wouldn't be able to retain all the detail, you'd have to use one of the more expensive plastics, which would put the price to around $30 or so per figure.

The current plastic is also very easy to paint, its not water tight by default so it absorbs paint nicely giving a great coverage and eventually becomes very scratch resistant whereas the more expensive plastics would be harder to paint too.

I may do some tests down the road, but for now it's too much trouble :)
