I don't believe I can post photos directly at this time, but I couldn't hold out much longer so I've posted links.  I wanted to share my Jack-in-the-box (or rather Jacka$$-in-the-box) Kim Jong il.





He's made of super-sculpey with cloth arms (yes, you can see stitching on the shirt and I even sculpted a zipper!).  The arms each bobble separately and the figure itself also bobbles.  His glasses are made of wire and shrinky-dink and the box is wood.  The handle turns, and although there is resistance there is no music or anything.  The whole thing stands about 10" high.

ETA:  Links fixed

Oh, wow, haha, I think this is absolutely fantastic and clever. I think you should make more of these.
What kind of paint did you use?

The paint was just basic acrylic crafting paint (except for the green of the box which was spray-painted).

I will be taking a 3D Illustration course next semester so I'm looking forward to creating more three dimensional stuff. I'd never really done much like this before.

eta:  After painting the entire thing was sprayed (fabric too, but the glasses were removed) with clear satin spray paint.

 Shocked That is awesome! He is so detailed! I love that he's hiding a missile behind his back and doing the Dr. Evil pinky-finger thing.  Cheesy What an adorable little dictator! Much better than the real-life Kim.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).
