Custom “Iron Man” Gauntlet for Dollfie DreamJanuary 23, 2016 at 6:36 am | Posted in Doll Clothes and Accessories, Repair/Tutorial/Custom | 10 Comments
Saw this Toy(with candy inside) at indom@ret (it’s a convenience store chain in indonesia) and I think with little modification this will be a good Gauntlet on my Doll XD.
obviously this a Bootlegs and not an official “Iron Man” merchandise
Comparison with DDS’ Arm
The candy sucks, but The arm have build in LED, which of course become the selling point of this toy 😄
Little bit of articulation.
now the problem! no way DD’s arm can go inside
I don’t feel able to open or pop the hand off without giving any major damage so i decide to saw the wrist
I will try to save the LED gimmick
I want to keep the Original battery box, So I will cut it off and take it out from the arm.
trim the inside
Further trimming needed
Bandages LOL So I can rotate the gauntlet without worry damaging the vinyl
Can’t close properly since I remove most of the locking mechanism 😄 so I using tape for now
Not exactly perfect yet and I should make the Cable longer later, maybe with custom LED on chest 😄
The plastic quality not that good ^^
