Hieronymus Bosch Action Figures: Bosch action figures; a perfect gift for that special niece or nephew whose tastes tend toward the demonic and grotesque.

My father received six of these for his birthday in October. They're a bit on the small side, I'd keep them away from toy-swallowing youngsters.

This is a "buy."

The first one is also the logo for Tilburg's Dutch Brown Ale, which I originally tried because of the art on the bottle.

It's good for the price (~$7 for six bottles) by the way.

We wants it, precious.

Double, actually. The old post also links to the artists who actually make the figures, who also make figures from the works of Bruegel and Dali, amongst others.

You know, for the longest time I had no idea about what to do of the reproductions of Dürer's woodcuts depicting the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the Woman Clothed With the Sun and the Seven-headed Dragon that I purchased a while back. I wanted to hang them up, but I always thought, "No, no. Something's missing." Well now I know what that something is. Though I'm slightly disappointed they don't have the dude with the flute up his butt. He would've lent a certain special spark to my collection.

Yeah, the previous post has even more Bosch figures.

Damn, I was hoping for a bladed ear action figure.

Bosch was weird.

Gods damn it, these aren't action figures. They're resin figurines, and they appear to cost $40 to $80 apiece. If they were plastic action figures, I would buy them.

quin, see the link from the earlier post - they actually do make an "Ears with Knife" figure.

Damn, I was hoping for a bladed ear action figure.

the bladed ear is on the second page of the second link: this isn't exactly a double since this is a link to where you can *buy* these wonderful (but pricey) stocking stuffers...

hey trade your tree man for the devil in a high chair eating somebody...kids stop fighting!

oh hells yeah! I can't help it I'm a Bosch fan-boy.

I'll put those up next to the framed prints from Giger's Baphomet Tarot that I have. *gyyyrrk*

Toss in a little Gorey and I'll be all set.

Cool!

Thanks all, I didn't even realize that there was a second page to the second link.

Though I now have to admit that I have all the materials to make one of these, and I might just have to make my own super creepy knife-ear-from-the-pits-of hell-action figure.
posted by quin at 1:26 PM on December 10, 2007


Naturally, the knife in mine will be real.
posted by quin at 1:28 PM on December 10, 2007


And you won't be using real ears? I mean, you've got a knife already.

OK, this is cool, but when do the Detective Hieronymus Bosch action figures go on sale?
posted by Brocktoon at 2:43 PM on December 10, 2007


I must have these for my new office. This will definitely cut down on idle chat about last weekend's football games.
