Wonder Woman Painted Hardcopy


Here we have a truly awesome Super Powers hardcopy. You can see the character is Wonder Woman and the piece is intricately hand painted. Hardcopies like this are hand cast from silicone molds made from the original wax sculpting. Examples are handpainted for use in catalog photography or used as paintmasters. The material used for this piece is a green urethane referred to as dynacast.

The limbs and head secure to the torso via metal pins. This is illustrated in the above photo. I have not seen as many urethane hardcopies for the Super Powers line as proto-molded internal first shots. Dynacast wasn't a very user friendly material to work with and internal first shots could be created in a more cost effective manner. That probably explains the greater abndance of internal first shots.

Special thanks to Dan Flarida for showcasing this hardcopy and a few other pieces from his collection on this site.
