Thread: Has anyone shrunk the original Star Wars Kenner Doll heads?

  1. #1

    Has anyone shrunk the original Star Wars Kenner Doll heads?

    Has anyone shrunk the Kenner 12" Star Wars doll heads? It seems like if shrunken properly they may fit well on a new mego body. I would love to see some retro Star Wars customs if anyone has examples!

    I'd be interested to see if they shrink down enough. I tried a Kenner Bionic Woman head and it didn't shrink even close to the amount needed for an 8" figure.

    Pretty sure this Luke is a hydroshrink and recast of the Kenner version

    6MDM is a totally different type of plastic.

    I don't think any 12 inch figures heads will shrink down to 8 inch size.

    How tough is this process for someone that has never done it? I know there are tutorials online.

    I think the reimagined catalog had both Han and Luke as hydroshrink versions. Dave Mc had those molds for a while. I asked about them years ago and they went to another customizer and may be lost to the public now.

    Pez heads work well for any helmeted characters, I've even hollowed out a few clone trooper helmets and fit them over some of the smaller CTVT heads.

    "Applause" made several Star Wars vinyl statues in 9" height. I have used them to make Han Solo and other Star Wars customs.
