Yes, sadly bricklink doesn't have the Fabuland minifigs inventoried, so it's impossible to get just a head or arms. The same goes for scooters, as they are old, unlikely to be reproduced and the wheels are exclusive to Fabuland.

I have 19 Fabuland figures currently, and I plan on making the a Fabuland scaled casino and rebuild my Fabuland layout.

How might I repair this:

mine has no wheels... Where can I get spares if it is fixable?
I'm able to remove the wheels from my scooter - but then again, that may be a side affect of many years inbreeding...
:grin:
I suggest buying a new scooter. The wheels aren't available on Bricklink, and they might be locked in on certain models, so the chance of you finding a solution to fix the scooter is low.

So you got a head transplant* then, because your body is the new type with anchor print (I should also get a walrus one day to do some whacking...).

* or a body transplant, of course, depending on your point of view.

Aren't the eyes the difference? New ones all googley, old ones dots?

EDIT: I almost forgot that my package arrived a few days ago. So, as soon as I can find a camera, I'll be posting a few new MOCs with them. I still need a Sinner Walrus, to go with that Blue "mid-scale" tank and the blue bucket...

Hey everyone! Still working on that blasted dragon Fabuland fig mod. I have switched to using Super Sculpey because its firmer. Dragons have a lot of details, and I'm trying not to over do it to maintain a Fabuland look and scale. I've been working on it for two weeks now, and I need to take a break. Its not an abandoned project, I'm just a little rusty at sculpting super detailed items these days-- and I think if I work on other projects I can work up to it.

Sculpting small characters is very challenging and I tip my hat off to toy makers! The hardest part I have found trying to recreate Fabuland figs is the hair/ scale textures oh and NOSTRILS <sigh>. Tough stuff!

So I'm going to make a rhino next. He should be ready to photograph by the weekend.

I am also working on a blog companion to fabfabuland.com. There is so much cool Fabuland stuff out there, and I think it would be good for the community to have regular updates (whether it is MOCs, builder interviews, fun facts, youtube videos etc). I will post the link when I get a few more things set up on it.

I hope everyone is well and enjoying their summers (or winters depending on where you live :tongue: ).

Posted ImageWell here is my Fab frankenstein monster #2. He is a rhino. I'm pretty happy with him but his head is just a tidge bigger than the others (not so bad compared to the lion and elephant). This is a silly pic I know but I was puttering around in my garden after I had painted him, and took a pic with his fellow neighbors. I will post better pics soon to show all his gory details (Ay! the finger prints!)

Hey guys since it's been so quiet in here I thought I'd post a link to a recent interview I did with Sybrand Bonsma of the Unofficial Fabuland Homepage. He is a very interesting guy and has some insightful info on all things Fabuland check it out!

Really? That easy?

I expected there to be some sort of initiation crap involving pain and ABS Plastic Surgery or something. :laugh:
