Ever had that favorite character from a movie, tv show, or a book that you love? So do I. One of my favorite all time programs was Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then the sequel series, Angel, which wasn't as good as Buffy. All die-hard Buffy fans say that, I know. The show was a fantasy based tv show that came on and was based on the famous movie from the early 80's. Besides Buffy, one of my favorite characters was Rupert Giles, her watcher.
Well, the toy actionfigure company Sideshow (http://www.sideshowtoys.com ) has done many replicas of Buffy and all of the characters, including Giles. I just ordered Giles the other day and received notification today that he is on his way! Don't have any pictures yet, but soon hope to. My next character up for purchase will be Buffy Prophecy girl, (this one is based upon the first season when the 'Master' vampire supposedly does away with Buffy and she drowns, but Zander saves her by mouth to mouth. Steamy! This particular figure wears her white gown and heels that she was wearing on her way to the dance/prom.
I have an awesome slant Bespaq desk that will make for a great desk for Giles. I have always wanted to replicate the school library on my own loose interpretation, and have begun to figure out what I want in the way of a library for the slayer and her watcher and the Scoobies. My library won't be exactly like Sunnydale high's library, but based upon the Watcher's council library in London, England and the Sunnydale high school library- I liked the fact that you went up the stairs for books. I have already begun a host of items for Giles and Buffy- thick old books and papers, stakes, wooden crosses, etc. I will probably create the first scene with foamcore when I get time...this is one of those ideas in the making, and I just couldn't resist buying the Giles figure. I haven't had time to work on the dollhouse, but know that I definitely will have Giles and Buffy residing there- or visiting, probably Giles will be Agnes' younger uncle Giles, the one who carried on the secret watcher family tradition of the Von Weiss Barons. It will make for interesting story lines, that is for sure!
No pictures of the house for now, have been so busy, but hopefully will have some soon when the Giles figure arrives, and hopefully some pics of the dollhouse!
