Ron Versus the Acromantula

Posted on 2007.11.11 at 06:34
It's not the largest Acromantule Ron's ever faced, but it's still pretty damned scary.

Okay, first off, I am going to have to steal one for iconing. I hope that's okay.

Second, you're completely brilliant. :D

First, you have my blessings.

Second, I am, but fortunately, I'm so humble that I'm still devastatingly sexy.

Friend away! Always a pleasure! Do you want the ability to read my smutty fic as well?

There's no magic or gigantic skill for me in making these dolls. Its just a matter of blowing $30.00 a pop -- I think that's about 15 pounds each -- on the 12" NECA figures, and pulling off their heads and hands, and attaching them to other figures. Superglue is a help, and choosing appropriate figures is important.

Ken (Of "Barbie and..." fame) supplied most of the wardrobe.

Now this Ron was a bit more challenging. I had to pay a GI-Joe customizer I know to re-cast the head of teh Gentle Giant Ron mini-bust. (He's selling those heads, BTW, painted. {Or, at least, he was.} If you're interested in one, I'll put you in touch.)

Ah, I do want to be put in touch with the head-painter. I wanna make a 12 inch Ron. I love my Gentle Giant but he's only half a man. I can probably put the head on an Action Man figure over here. A bit buff for Ron but what the hey.

Did your happy Harry originally have a hole in his hand? I've picked one up but am at a loss as to why he has a hole in his hand.

I'm an American, btw, living in the UK. We just moved here in August.

Thanks!

Get me an e-mail address -- mine is jsheen@leviathanstudios.com -- and I'll send you the headmaker's address. Tell him I sent you. Last I heard he was charging $20.00 for a painted Ron head, and his paint job was better than Gentle Giant's.

I suggest a "Dragon Models" body or an M&C Toys Power Team "super-articulated" figure. You can generally get nudes of either kind cheap on eBay. Ken cloths fit the Power Team body fairly well.

The Happy Harry was a "Magic Powers Harry Potter." He came with a fairly pathetic wand. The hole in his hand was to hold the wand with.

I am matildebishop @yahoo.com. Watch the "e" instead of "a" in matilda. Someone else got the name first. And thanks for the heads up about Dragon Models and et al. I'll look for those.

My MP Harry came w/o that nice robe you have on your Ron. I like him though (even w/o glasses) because he's the only cheerful looking Harry I have.

Thanks!

Actually, is your Cheerful Harry This one?



Or this one?



The latter head is from Mattel's "Hogsmeade Harry Potter" circa "Prisoner of Azkaban."

It's the first slap-happy one, grinning and showing his teeth. You're living my dream, you know. Making narratives with dolls (since I can't cartoon). Those wonderful dialog bubbles...sigh.

Yeah, I'm deeply troubled by LJ's bigoted and exclusionary policies! LJ/Six Apart is unfair to non-humans!

Ah, that's definitely "Magic Powers Harry Potter." The idea with him was that he had a fan inside his body that would blow a jet of air up through the palm of his open hand, which would do things like cause a ball to float in the air over his hand, or make a paper flame flutter, or a boggart flay out of a little plastic trunk he was holding up. He should have come with the glasses and robe.

I like his headsculpt, it's very happy without looking stupid. But I'm glad to be working with the current version.
