A New HP Mini Bust?

 

GGC and VoldemortsVault.com reader Ryan reported in that he found this article on-line about Gentle Giant Studios and in it they mention a  Harry Potter Grindylow Mini Bust and have several prototype pictures posted as well.

 

According to the article Scott from Gentle Giant Studios says, "I did a Grindylow a character from Harry Potter which is now a figure from Gentle Giant Ltd. The whole idea was for me to show that ZBrush was an effective sculpting tool for creating recognizable characters from concepts or photos. The guys were so thrilled with the results of this test it became a product.". It looks great but no word yet if this ever made it to the final table for production. You can read the article here and view some pictures below! Big Thanks to Ryan for the report!
