    hmm, not economically at least.
    it can be done if you have a rapid protyping machine hooked up to a computer with the CAD files for the hand.

    if you need hands, these are way better. you need the 1/144 scale or deluxe sizes.
    i think they are the version A's

    version B's are for 1/100 gundams, binaltech scale.

    or you could simply sculpt one out of epoxy or something similar, then paint
