The Little Mermaid – Ariel and Sisters Customized Doll Set Diorama with Lighting! My latest project involved modifying a remarkable doll set released by the Disney store celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Disney’s animated feature The Little Mermaid. The original kit featured Ariel and her six sisters in mermaid form. Approximate scale is 6 (1/12) so I saw the opportunity to upgrade their bodies to after-market 1/12 scale silicone seamless super-flexible bodies released by TBLeague. Additionally, one of the complaints with the original kit was the lack of display stands or the ability to position the mermaids upright. The action figure stands feature articulated arms that allow you to position the mermaids in an infinite number of poses, including simulating floating or swimming around the coral reef! This remarkable piece features the following. Seamless bodies with soft touch and feel of real skin modified to fit in the original mermaid tails. Allows for greater pose-ability for arms and twisting around the waist. Each figure will come with a total of 3 pairs of hands (whatever comes with the TBLeague seamless body kits). The head sculpts and clothing accessories that comes with the TBLeague body kits ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS SET!!! Enhanced mid-section for better membrane effect I actually added this to cover up imperfections between mermaid tails and silicone bodies but it turned out to be a great improvement in appearance! Real seashells used for mermaid tops!!! (The original bodies had “seashell” tops molded on so it was necessary to find a suitable replacement). Additional accessories added, many made out of real seashells. This includes hair and wrist ornaments and necklaces. 11 color-changing LED’s distributed within the coral aquarium ornament! Takes about 30 seconds to cycle through all the colors (about 7). I added a switch to each LED so you could independently control the timing but this turns out to be unnecessary. If you leave it on, the light-changing timing will randomize among all the LED’s. LED lights may be powered with included AC adapter (recommended for brightest effect) and portable battery pack (uses button batteries so will not last long). You can also consider using three 1.5V AA or AAA batteries but will need to build your own power adapter. Pictures are of the actual item you will be receiving. This set is meant for adult collectors only! Figures should be carefully handled to avoid breaking any accessories. Attached figure stand joints are stiff (but adjustable with screws) to support the weight of the figures so these should be manipulated with care. The Obitsu stands come with arms of various lengths and other accessories – these will be included so you can change arm lengths as you see fit.
