GIANT'S ACTION FIGURES (GREG WHALEY)
I hope that you like my pictures of my custom made 8 inch action figures of
the Land of the Giants crew and passengers? I began making the costumes in
1999 I finished the last costume in 2001, it was hard work but I kept at it.
Took me one whole day to make each costume, Valeries dress was real hard
because I had to find the fabric that was close to her dress on the series.
Betty's skirt gave me a bunch of problems because it's a wrap skirt. I was
going to make the jacket to go along with the skirt but I ran out of fabric.
I plan on re-doing the skirt and jacket so that she would have a complete
uniform. I also found a fat body for Fitzugh so there might be some upgrading
on his out fit.
I am a film maker and I did have plans on making a stop motion animated live
action film on Land of the Giants. In one story the earthlings was going to do
battle with SID androids there size. also Dan and the others are going to rescue
a black woman that was captured by the androids from a previous crash and she is
going to be a regular with the crew and passengers of the Spindrift. I have at
least 13 androids plus the black woman figure whos going to be Dans love. when I
met Don Marshall and Deanna Lund I told them of my idea and he smiled and said,
that's great! Deanna and Don was amazed at my photos. I have plans of the Spindrift
enlarged to the scale of my 8 inch figures. I'm gathering the materials I need so
that I can start my project. The interior is going to be seperate from the Spindrift
so that when I film or take photos I will be able to do so.
I've dreamed of doing this project since I was a child watching Land of the Giants
on television. Hopefully I will pull it off. I will be sending more pictures and
additional info etc. in the weeks to follow.
