Jacob the Wanderer - 1/35
« on: December 16, 2018, 03:12:32 AM »
Hello guys!

First of all - short introduction
Jakub Wędrowycz - in english Jacob the Wanderer is a main character from book series of polish writer Andrew Pilipuk. Jacob is...well... horrific aged boozer , rural exorcist, moonshiner and poacher, shocking by look , smell and lack of any hygiene or personal culture :) Because he is kind of...supernatural, he exterminates vampires, zombies, ghosts etc ,usually in unusual way :) Very funny guy , I tell you :) ToRo model company made a 1/35 Jacob figure which  I get as a gift from my beloved wife :) And here it is, on a small vignette.

The writting on a bayse says "Halloween, sh..toween , "Ancestors",da..n!"

Dziady - in english it can  be sth like "Ancestors" is an old slavic "All Souls' Day" celebration before christianity. During this custom, our pagan precedensors tried to get a contact with dead. Kind of Halloween but not at all :)

Hope you'll like it :)

He looks just slightly deranged. He would probably get even madder if his liquor bottle falls out of his pants...

Do you know if there is an English translation of the books? Sounds like fun!

Thanks a lot guys :)

Indeed :) Sadly, I don't have any knowledge about english versions of these books.  It's not a bestseller as...f.ex. Harry Potter. I think no one even thought about making english versions of Jacob the Wanderer' series.

Very nice diorama and work.  If he was to ever cross the Atlantic, 'twould be interesting to see him meet up, depending on timeline, with either David Drake's "Old Nathan" or Manly Wade Welman's "Silver String John"; both of whom have very interesting relationships with the supernatural.

I like this one a lot, Artoor!

Few things impress me more than a well done figure and this is one of the finest Horror figures I've come across recently.

Very well done!
