I DREAM OF JEANNIE KIT #01
Barbara Eden - I Dream of Jeannie rare resin model kit. Basically a hybrid of "Bewitched,"
the '60's sitcom known as "I Dream of Jeannie" was another smash hit, running on air for
six years and 139 episodes.
Astronaut Larry Hagman finds a genie in a bottle, a luscious lovely possessing limitless
magical powers. Young and perky Barbara Eden portrayed Jeannie, scantily dressed in colorful
Arabian veils and a pillbox hat.
Shown here is the sultry Ms. Eden, handsomely realized as a limited edition resin model. This
fine garage kit was produced nearly a decade ago by the short-lived company, Southern Fried
Resin, and happens to be the only resin model ever produced of Eden's Jeannie. Popular as the
model was, it was soon discontinued due to a cease and desist order, with less than 50 castings
having ever been produced.
It's a terrific sculpture, with an accurate likeness, fine proportions, and a well designed pose.
The sculpt was done by Tom & Joy studios, and is surely their best effort in the resin figure
arena. Jeannie holds her mystical lamp in offering, provocatively poised on her flying magic
carpet. A 1/6 scale model, the figure stands approx. 11 1/2" tall when assembled, and certainly
commands attention on display. Slickly cast in solid white resin, the kit is a simple build,
requiring almost no prep before painting.
Jeannie is complete, unbuilt, and comes packaged in her original box, just waiting for a new
master to light up her Arabian nights. So, go ahead, make a wish!
Value: $175. (Unbuilt)
