Harry Potter Fan Fiction

Envy My Toy!

What you see above is a 12" Action Figure, in a cloth costume, of Ron Weasley.

The head is a recast of the head of the Gentle Giant "Ron" Mini-bust, cast and hand-painted with painstaking care by a friend of mine I'll allow to stay anonymous to fend off the copyright police. The body is a super-articulated "Callous Soldier" body. Ron's wearing blue jeans from the Power Team "Front Line Defenders" CIA operative, a pullover from Ken, the robe of a "Magic Powers Harry Potter" figure, and trainers from a 21st Century Toys figure.

I agree: This Ron is way better than the Hermione or the Harry. The saem fellow is also working on a re-cast for me of the Gentle Giant Hermione mini-bust, so at least Ron will have a worthy "Sparring Partner!"

Since all the credit goes to the sculptors at Gentle Giant, and my friend who cast/painted that head, I'm free to agree without looking big-headed! He does look great, doesn't he!
OMG it's full of STARS!

Oh! He's fantastic! Makes the Harry and Hermione dolls look childish beside him. ;~)

I'm so pleased with him! He certainly does outshine the other two. As I told Lilly, there'll be a new Hermione soon. Harry, I'm not as sure about.

It somehow seems threatening to my manhood to cry out, "Mine! Mine! He's all mine!"

I'll definitely have to pass all these compliments on to my friend who cast and painted this head.

It's just dandy, isn't it?

And you know what I just realized? I have a Radio controlled, 1:6 scale Mini Cooper! It's blue, with white roof and hood stripes, but still! Rupe may be going for a drive, soon!

I'll race you with my air soft tank! (You'll win too...)

Very nice! You need a picture of him sitting astride a knight from a suitably sized chess set. ;-)

This is the most recent post that I could comment on, so sorry if it seems random.

I just recently got an LJ account and wanted to add you, since you had mentioend I could be a part of your special friends group that gets to read your smutty fics.

I used to anonymously read everyone's LJ's, but risiepookie keeps all of hers locked, so I've succumbed to actually getting an account. She was the one that pointed me in your direction by the way, but I'm pretty sure I mentioned that to you on my review of your fic.

I would love an add, if you are so inclined. You would be my second friend, which would be very very exciting!!!!!!

Thanks, Jen

Well, my skills consisted entirely of giving people money, gluing the head to the body, and dressing him, but, hey, I'll take the praise! ;^)

the lips are great - as is the hair.

shame there aren't freckles, but still it's very cool.
