I love the Rita Skeeter! Have you tried using Willie Scott's hairpiece? I think that would go well with her.

I made a few purist Harry Potter figures a few days ago. I posted them on here.

Thanks! )  :classic: Yes, I tried that. Her hair doesn't work here. No way. )  :classic:
Yes, I've seen them. Very well done! ) :thumbup:

Great figs Penguin! I think you should make professor Pomona Sprout, Aunt Marge (in 2004, when the HP3 sets came out, I was really disappointed, cause his scene was my favourite in the film, and LEGO didn't make it as a set) Barty Crouch, Cornelius Fudge, Colin Creeve and  Nearly-Headless Nick Sir Nicholas de Mimsy Porpington.

Thank you, Viceroy! )  :classic:
Very nice ideas, thanks! I might make some of the figs, mentioned! ) :wink:

Vernon is amazng! is the hairpiece removable? :cry_happy:

Rita.. Stunning! You completely captured her sneaky smile.

Full beard? ) Um, well yes, I'll give it a try. )  :classic:
With certain force, yes. )  :laugh:

Did you file down the neck for Uncle Vernon? It's such a nice touch, it makes him that much fatter.  :thumbup:

Nice job with the sculpting.

Cool, all of them, but Flitwick needs a more detailed torso and Rita really needs some shoes.  :laugh:

Flitwick and Rita look very good. Vernon looks also pretty good, though I'm using this head for my interpretation of Vernon Dursley. Lately, I've found many differences between the books and films (involving characters) and when making Harry Potter characters LEGO hasn't produced, I like to base myself on the books. Vernon has a huge black moustache, so it works well. But I like what you've done with the sculpy to make him look bigger.  :classic:

Oh, the ghosts!  :wub: They look very accurate and good. The paint job is good, except for the fingerprint on Rowena's dress. But it's no big deal. They looks all so good together!  :thumbup: Headless Nick is my favorite of the four, he looks really good. I still hope LEGO will release clear minifigures some day to use as ghosts (although it seems very unlikely).

Fudge looks also good. I hope LEGO releases a dark green bowler had in the future (with all these new hat designs, who knows!  :classic: ).

Great job!  :thumbup:

Now the only ghost(that can be seen in the first 5 movies) you need is moaning Myrtle. Wasn't there another ghost that was in the lego sets but never made an appearance in the film? Excellent job.

Well, actually it's not a fingerprint, it's the paint that for some reason stayed liquid after 30 minutes! )  :laugh:  However I desided to leave it as it is to gve it a ghostly look. )  :classic:

Wow, these are all very awesome Penguin. Although, Quirrell is only a different face. But still good. I think McGonagall with hair is the best. And why the long hair for the Weasly twins?

The Star Wars Hoth Trooper face is perfect for Quirell.

Great Minifigs, even if they are only slightly changed. Proffesor Sprout's torso looks too clean IMO... :sceptic: I'd like to see an Umbridge, Lego's head looked weird.

Wow Penguin, I didn't know that you did Harry Potter figures! They're great!

I love your Slughorn, the face does look like Jim Broadbent (or whoever played him).

I never new the one at the end of the Philosopher Stone was Madame Prince, (for reasons unbeknownst to me right now) I always thought she was Professor Aurora (or whoever the Astronomy teacher was. I was always sad that she and her classroom went undiscribed).

Your Poppy is brilliant, looks like the perfect Lego nurse!

Your Flitwick is good, but why did you make me look so old!  :sadnew:  :tongue:  You should also make a third-movie Flickwick!

Your Vernon is perfect, especially his podginess!

Rita is great, both her and her outfit are beyond stunning!

All of your ghosts are perfect, I love the blood on the Baron's clothes!

Your Fudge is good, somewhat like mine I made (but didn't post)

Your Fred and George look good, but (no offence meant) nothing jumps of as spectacular.

Your sport is good, with the body looking better on her than it did on aunt may (no perverted undertones meant!  :grin: )

Your pink skin-afied teachers all look good!

I'm Agnostic and ambivalent about it.
