Great companion piece for Snake Eyes. I don't know if this is old news.

That dog looks like it's about to roll over and pee on itself, too much of a puss to be Timber. I have a lead on one that's better. I'll let you know if it works out. :D

seen that one in person, actualy, it's pretty good. it just needs some modding.. i'll prolly get that one, decapitate it, reposition th head, and then when i sculpt on the shaggy wolf "Mane" it will dover up the cut.

I guess it depends on how you are displaying SE. I mean, Timber is not a rabid wolf. He's not going to be snarling and drooling all the time. I am posing my SE in a kind of quietly intense pose, like the one on the proto pics where he has has fists clenched. This wolf would work well for that pose. A ravenous, slavering wolf would not compliment that pose very well. I get what others are saying, though. This wolf will work for my purposes, though.

i've seen that wolf before but i didnt like the harness on him. and part of it is sculpted on so it's not removable. i've looked at several wolf figures and statues but nothing looked very good.

Yeah, I guess I'll reserve judgement until I get him and Snakes together.

no matter WHAT 1/6 dog you get, and trust me, it will be a dog, not a wolf, SOME resculpting will be required. wolves have extra fur on their front shoulders simular to a mane on a lion. sculpting this onto the dog in preeny's post will take care of his harness.
Dog's lack the "mane" so any 1/6 dog you get will nver look exactly right becuase of this.

That pretty much looks perfect but I sure hope there's a cheaper way to get it!

WOw. it is perfect... but no way in hell i'm spending that much. so resculpting here i come!


Unless you're willing to send your wolf to someone to recast it.

Courtesy of Monkey Depot, here's my Timber. Captures the attitude perfectly. I plan on painting over the tan with white and then doing a white wash over the black:

I Think Drakep3's got that one. There is one on his shelf that looks ALOt like that last Time i was hanging out with him. If it's the one I'm thinking of.... it's REALLY skinny in person. but even if not... the fur around the shoulders is not gonna be right w/y some resculpting. I've got a pretty good tutorial on sculpting fur .

Nam... Speaking of Drakep3... He, myself and Wilcocash are arranging something. :) stay tuned :)
( Granted my involvement in this project is more or less over... but meh, I helped :D )

Meh, the mane doesn't bother me that much. He's a Shepherd, the pose with bared teeth captures Timber's personality perfectly and after the repaint will look close enough to a wolf for my tastes. Thanks for the help though and I can't wait to see what you guys come up with! :D

I'm planngon to see if i can't repose one of the recasts, and fix the cuts with some sculpty. but all that will come after we see some casting done.

I was looking at that one too. out of all the ones readily avaliable out there, that one looks the best IMO. post pics for scale when you get him.

That is neat looking. The one that's standing up is pretty cool too but the tiny picture really hurts it.

I'd be careful about 1:6 animals with "real fur." I ordered a 1:6 horse for my Samwise figure that had real fur and was so realistic, it came complete with bugs. I still keep telling myself that they were fleas, but I know what fleas look like... and we'll leave it at that. Needless to say, it hit the outside garbage immediately, box and all.

hmmmm......kinda looks like if the muppets made a wolf

Yeah, that furred version looks kind of odd. I think the sculpted ones would be the way to go.

Keep us posted on how it looks when you get it. It's hard to make out how it would look in person from the EBay pic.
