Scot, you know, casting as in pouring a liquid material (metal or resin) into a mold to make a cast from the mold.  I've attached pics of casting the Bony.






Joe, Thanks for the explanation and the pics! You are, indeed, a man of many skills and talents.

Joe,

     Your Toy My Little Bony is by far one of the coolest Wacky Related items EVER done. Thanks for making this happen!

Mine showed up here in southeastern Indiana. They're great! With four kids, I especially identify with the Leg ow. So true....I have stepped on approximately 324,619 (give or take) Legos during my time as a dad. LOLzz

  Thanks again!!

Brian, you're welcome!  I agree it's a fun set but Mark Parisi's Leg-Ow is the best! Also if you're around kids during the Holidays, it's the one toy you'll always see plenty of!

I remember from when I was a kid, aside from Legos, Fisher Price Little People were frequently stepped on, and also ended up in the washing machine at least once.

Kevin, you know it!  In fact, I think I still have my Creepy Crawlers set in the garage.  I wonder if that goop would still be good after all these years?

Thank you Joe.  The postcards are great.  I think "The Turfs" is my favorite.  Have a great holiday!

Frank, you're welcome and so glad you liked The Turfs.  Turfs was actually a rejected ANS 12 gag (which became WP 2014) that I always wanted to do something with.  Maybe next year a Turf's action figure would be in order.

Me too, but at the time I was shelling out $10 a day to Topps and was pinching pennies.  ;)

Hi Joe G., Mark and Paul.  Thanks for the time and effort put into this Holiday Treat.  I just received mine up here in the Great White north. They are magnificent.  I hope you have a great holiday yourself.  Thanks again for the tremendous effort. Much appreciated.

If you have any Bony's left you might want to auction them on ebay them for charity.

 I would think there is demand now that the awesomeness of the Bony Pony has been revealed to the world.

Joe,
 My apologies for not responding sooner and i did receive the cards the first week of December. These post cards are great!! I really love the Leg-Ow. I can relate to the pain of stepping on legos, especially in the middle of night!!

kudos to you, Mark and Paul for doing an excellent job.
