I DREAM OF JEANNIE RESIN KIT #01

Updated: January 03, 2013

BARBARA EDEN - I DREAM OF JEANNIE - RARE RESIN MODEL - 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: $170. (Unbuilt)
