Would anyone like to recreate Willy McBean from the movie of the same name?
Willy and Pablo were a "Must Make" for me when I started to make my R/B puppet replicas. I plan to make both in the sometime in the future.
Also I'm positive we are allowed to post about replicas other than Rudolph as long as they are Rankin/Bass. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

This is not someone's personal build thread, if you look back at the first post, it was just a topic of discussion.

Stealing someone's personal build thread to talk about something else would not be warranted in most cases. ;)

Sorry for the lack of updates on my Hermey puppet. It's been a busy past few months for me. I wanted to get Hermey finished by Christmas, but I need a Vacuum Chamber and pressure pot for clean silicone molds and resin castings. Looks like it will have to wait until 2022.
Anyways since I couldn't start on a new character, I figured now would be a good time to go back and see what I could improve on Sam.
One thing I couldn't do during the summer was give him gloved hands. I tried to sew up some gloves for him but they came out horrendous. So I called it quits and moved on. However the past week I felt the need to give it another shot. It took me a while, but I was finally able to make a pair I was happy with.

They came out AMAZING!!! I was honestly surprised they came out so good. Making tiny gloves with individual fingers was no easy task for me, but did make for a great learning experience.
That's all for now. Hope to hear of other replicas on this thread soon!

While I wait to gather the proper tools I need for Hermey, I figured I should get started on another Sam while I still have the time. My first Sam was too small for my Rudolph and I wanted to make a bigger and better one. This one will stand at 9 inches and should be near or accurately scaled to the real Sam photo puppet. The process should also go a lot quicker than my last attempt.
