A little bit of drilling do the job.

Well, it's ML part swaps but to create a Jedi character... picked up an extra DP2 Domino and swapped on the Claire Temple head to make a "humanised" Ahsoka...

Got tired of holes on my shelf so started swapping:

Image

Image

Just Infinity War Wanda hair on Wandavision body, repainted the arms, make-up and reshaped/clipped the tiara. Not hard, but IW Wanda isn't cheap.

Image
Claire Temple, Infinity War Wanda head (with Claire's peg shaved WAY down), a Wandavision hand, an America hand and a super-poseable Buffy Faith hair (had trouble finding a good hair swap).

AoU Wanda:
Image
Image

ML Nico body, Jubilee arms, Civil War Wanda hair and a Figuarts Wanda face. The jacket is super-poseable Buffy Faith cut down (then reglued because I cut wrong).

I still need to finally break down and buy that Destro just for the glasses (the Ebay folks charges almost the same price for the whole figure just for the glasses), or source some other ones. Were you going to leave them that color or paint the front part/lenses? I was thinking about a neon pink similar to Jubilee or a brighter maroon kinda like the comics.

I was planning on leaving it as is, it’s already a nice metallic pink/purple.

Her hair is a lot flat at the top for the 80s, and she's missing her curl swoop, but this doesn't look "wrong" to me like her factory hair did. This is a straight swap between Kitty and Wandavision Wanda.
This looks really good IMO, question - does Kitty's original hair look alright on Wanda for a straight swap? I want to do this but I don't want a bald Wanda figure either..

Ha! I have a bald Civil War Wanda glaring at me... :)

I've glued all my Wandas back together, but Wandavision Wanda - what you see of her face is all there is, the rest is indented so the hair fits. I may have tried it, but it didn't work. And the tiara being plugged into her head ruins her for any other look.

My thought with the Kitty Hair was this:
Image

Natalie does have a big forehead, but this hair is so bouncy compared to her flatter style. And this is with Jane's head already cut down in the back some. Might end up working, now that I've finished other projects.

I used the Marvel Select hair on Jane

Gave her that promo art look.

Yeah, that works, but I like my MS Jane - and I already scalped her alt head for a Bargaining Buffy. :)
