    Will someone with more skills than I could ever possibly have please make a 1/1 Bubo from the original Clash of the Titans???

    The Gentle Giant is way too small although neat.

    The rubber one is horribly inaccurate.

    I can not find anything for Bubo that's any good.

    Judging by the price going for G.G. Bubo that was originally for $60 and now go for a whole lot more I would say there is a market.

    looks like it has some damage over the years, his "beard" is missing a spike and his eyes are a bit wonky. i can make some patterns out of paper for all the tin bending work in the morning , right now i need to get some sleep

    I know exactly what you mean. There's definitely a lack of options out there when it comes to Bubo, isn't there? I ended up putting one of the foam-rubber costume versions in my display-case years ago as a kind of 'place holder' until something better came along, but alas...

    for scale: the average male head is 9 1/2 to 10 inches so i would say that bubo is about 12 to 13 inches tall

    Yeah, this is actually your fault. Clash of the Titans being one of my favorites I had no idea a Bubo was made until I saw yours and immediately bought one. Like you said, it's a place holder and I have it buried so not even that. I missed the GG Bubo. Cool for $60 but no way for $300 +. I got excited until I saw how small it was. Still looked at getting one but gave up.

    So, yeah. This is actually all your fault :lol:angry

    ^ ^ ^ ^

    That's not the first time I've heard that.

    (For what it's worth, I still blame Brad and Alan for
    most of my prop-related neurosis, so ...)

    My deepest apologies, Sir.

    Yeah, they are trouble makers as well along with a few others. Sarednab, Relicmaker, and a ton of others just throwing prop drugs in front of us addicts saying, come on,....come one,..it's just a few props,...we promise.."

    People showing off all their stuff and others offering it for sale.

    We are in the family and no one leaves the family,...at least alive.
