What I wanted for Christmas(or for indefinite period of time)  
I'm supposed to write this as my response to coconut_sable's Japanese diary entry back in October, whereof she lamented how not-so-enticing Neca's HBP action figures looked. I won't start criticizing the quality of those action figures(since even Japanese manufacturers sometimes settle into low-quality figure products, sadly), but I admit, I really WANT a option of Harry Potter collectible figurines, other than those lame-copy-of-actors action figures or too-classy-to-play-with Tonner dolls!

I'm addressing this matter here and now because, one of my favorite manufacturer, Good Smile Company, had announced their 2nd line of "Death Note" Nendoroid Petit Figurines due January 2010, which looks like this:

...hope you all see its lethal power of cuteness now. I'm not even a big fan of Death Note, yet I'm bracing myself because, if I'd ever see it, I'm pretty sure to buy and collect them all! (BTW, each figurine sells for mere 525 yen, meaning, you can buy three at the price of aforementioned Neca's action figure!)

You may think those chibi-figurine products are possible because they originate from anime/manga.  But then, there were these "Indiana Jones" figurines (manufactured by Kotobukiya) released last year:

Oh yessss, thank Lucusfilm for delegating the whole designing&sculpturing task to Kotobukiya!

So I must emphasize here that, technically speaking, it's all feasible to create cute, collectible Harry Potter figurine products!
With that in mind, let's get to the point: here's my sketch to Santa this year, a draft of possible, future plan of Draco figurines!

So here are my suggestion for Draco figurine(or can be a cellphone charm)'s design, for which I picked up seven variations: 1)a basic Hogwarts uniform in PS,  2) Quidditch gear in CoS, 3)another uniform in PoA, 4)winter wear in PoA and 5)yule ball dress in GoF(as for 4 and 5, I don't remember much details of the wardrobe so make any correction at your side!^^;), 6)black Armani suit in HBP, plus rare/secret  of  7)white ferret!Draco in GoF.  

Now, if only Santa delivers this draft to JKR and Warner Brothers Inc., gets their approval and handles all those rights controls and other things, then secures the right sculptors of Good Smile Company or Kotobukiya(preferably, of the team which did this Hetalia figurines!) and makes them sell under 800 yen a piece, my eternal dream would come true...!!8-D

(Oh and IMO, making Harry figurine would be even easier, since they can just use the mold of Itoshiki-sensei's head!)

You're so brilliant! XDDD
If you were to manufacture these Dracos I would be the first one in line to buy them!!! *_______* Oh...and if you would be so kind to make one or two or a thousand of them with Harry attached, maybe in compromising positions, I would be most pleased. ^_____^ *Draco would be too hahaha*

Thank you!!^^<3
Unfortunately I can't actually manufacture any of those products, but as for the ideas for the unprecedented products featuring HP characters, I have TONS.(maybe I'll write another entry about those wacky product ideas, hehe!:-D)

ちなみにわたしは実は「Living Dead Dolls」で、棺桶に入った血みどろドラコも見てみたいのです。

メイドコスいいですねっ!(ハァハァ)血みどろドラコというのもいいっ!ぜひゴスロリっぽい衣装で…♥ というか、上でもいくつかコメが来てますが、フェレットドラコは商品化すれば絶対欲しがる人いると思うんだけどなぁ。てか日本で商品化してくれよぅー!
