Well, this morning, in Wal-Mart to buy socks, I stumbled upon a rubber, molded Bear's-Head fridge magnet, and I thought it was a pretty decent likeness. So I bought it, sculpted on more Mandy-like ears and furry ruff, and used it to replace the face of an old 1970s-era toy called "Duke, the Super Action Dog." I also swapped out the tail, to give it one like Mandy's that curled up over the base of her spine, et, voila! It's Mandy, the Bear-Shaped Action Figure:
"Nobody gives the back-scritchies like Daddy!"
Now, she does still need some pain touch-ups, and yes, she's larger than she should be in that scale, but, still, I'm pretty pleased with the Bear-Shaped Action Figure.
