Selberg Studios is pleased to present a cast of some of Tim's favorite handcarved basswood characters. He created this limited line of figures for performers and collectors who have an affinity for the classic puppet carved in wood; the traditional material of choice for some of the most famous figures in history. And, for those who want to better "see" and appreciate the wood, a slightly translucent skin tone finish is possible (seen on Duncan & Daphne - image #3).
"Special Edition Figures" are entirely handmade and branded with the distinctive Selberg Studios logo. Features included in the base price are precision form-fitted slot-jaw mouth, moving eyes (that automatically return to center when control is released) and full motion moving head. Please see the MECHANISMS Section for a complete description of the extra animations and controls.
SIZE AND WEIGHT
All figures are full professional size. Bodies are lightweight and scaled to accentuate the figure's face and not becumbersome. Most Figures wear size 3T or 4T and are proportioned to fit into clothing right off the rack.
Only high quality wigs are used and most were designed and manufactured specifically for our Figures. Colors may include: auburn, black, blonde, light/medium /dark brown, carrot red, and strawberry (depending on availability), as well as salt & pepper, white or grey for the old folks! Custom and special order styles are also available.
Your choice of Blue, Brown, Green, or Hazel. Custom or special order eyes, glowing eyes, etc. are also possible.
Each Figure's skin tone this will be automatically matched to the hair and eye color combination you select. You may choose to add a few freckles and special requests and custom paint schemes are possible.
Special changes and customization is possible with any character in our Line of Figures to create a look that is quite uniquely its own. Facial features such as nose, ears, mouth may be altered and tailored to varying degrees to create a subtle or even dramatic new look. This can be further enhanced by the the many skin tone and highlighting possibilities plus wig options available. Please inquire for a quote regarding any changes you may be interested in.

We strive to create your Figure in a timely manner. This process cannot be rushed however, and each project is given the painstaking attention required.
