Thanks everyone for the kind words!

Is this the first time you've chopped a klicky for a custom? You seem very adept at it. 8-)

Nope, it is the second time. The first was my zombie pirates...

We just recently watched LOTR on DVD and I think your dwarves are wonderful.

I also like how they have vary in height, just a bit

So could you use the bare footed klickies (from the beach/summer theme) to make Hobbits?

Me too! Which is what inspired me. They vary in height a little because my cutting is not as precise as I'd like, but the end result was okay after all! :) And yes, I suppose the barefoot klickies would be a good starting point for hobbits. I'd probably use children or gnomes as they are smaller overall and hobbits are rather slight creatures. Also, there is something interesting about the new barefoot klickies that I will point out in a new thread...

I want a Gimli!

Me too! Which is what I will have as soon as I get the braided beard in brown from the new Pirate special! :D

Will you let us into the secret of how you made them?  ???

Uhh, well, I copied Mofreaky! :D

I cut the legs just above the shoes or boots, and removed a small section of the leg before reattaching the foot using superglue and a little green stuff putty to fill in the gaps. I also removed a small section of each arm to make them stubbier, also reattaching them with glue and putty. For the arms, I used the leather armguards and armor to cover the butchery that is still visible! ;)

Your dwarfs are so much better than my clumsy attempt at making a dwarf using a Klicky child and some Milliput ...

That is a cool Dwarf Richard - I wouldn't say mine are better, just different. The big head of hair on yours looks terrific!

Nice Dwarfs! I like them.  8}

I copied mofreaky too and created my Dwarf Bugul for using him to play a Playmo-roleplay in the Playmo-Portal nearly 2 years ago. I´m a Dwarf-Fan too  ;D


Nice Greetings

Very nice figures CH and something that I will have a go at again oneday.

 I don't customize much but years ago I did something similar not to create a Dwarf in particular but a taller figure.

 If you snap the shoes of a fat figure and replace them with boots of a normal figure you obviously create a taller figure, I did this and called him little John. Then I put the shoes onto the normal figure and created a Dwarf although that was never my intention I just did it for fun. I will try and find the picture of Little John, I have it on a disc somewhere.
I'm only human, born to make mistakes.

Real good work. 8-) Makes me wonder if Playmobil ever considered something like this instead of adding beards to kid-Klickies.
