Military dolls from the Hermitage collection

96

Children's armor is a rarity. And you need to get rich on the rarity, as the chief queen of the Snow Queen advised, and was absolutely right! Many companies produce figures of men and women dressed in knightly armor. Nobody lets out figures of children dressed in armor !!! But for them there is a constant market: souvenir shops at the museums in which they are exhibited. Well let's say it's Vienna armory Hovburg Palace Chamber and the Armory in Dresden, next to the famous art gallery! Meanwhile, look how beautiful they are, what wonderful armor these kids were wearing!


Porcelain, sculptures, bowls everywhere.
And daily - Opening Day.
All this is a fabulous miracle!
All this is the glorious Hermitage.
Alexander Norenkov. Hermitage


This reduced, reduced world. In the previous material about the figures on a large scale, it was said that today it is a very promising direction for the organization of production, and even at the level of the "garage industry". The fact is that modern technologies make it possible to organize it on minimal areas and with the use of minimal equipment. That is, you can produce something, but the question is, what will it give? After all, any production, including model, is organized for the sake of money. But how to get people to buy your products? And, finally, the most important thing - what principle do you put as the basis of your production? What markets will you use?

The most important principle of modern production “fragile things to buy more often” does not fit here: your figures are not condoms or Gillette razors designed for one-time use. So, it remains to rely on the status and popularity of your products. Suppose today such beautiful dolls are popular as in our photo, and you immediately sew new dresses to them, one more luxurious than the other, so that the girl who bought such a doll could tell her friend: “You have a dress like everyone else, it sucks, here I have dresses from Status Accessories, it’s not the cat you’ve sneezed! ”You open the production of doll hats and jewelry, why not? And today such a market sector exists, and you can even occupy your niche in it.


A beautiful doll, isn't it? Now the fashion for such dolls has already passed, but who knows what it will come to again? And you can always get attached to the production of popular goods ...

Military dolls from the Hermitage collection

And here is such a doll Marilyn Monroe. Well, to her you can make a collection of dresses from the most famous and cult films with her participation!


Samurai with ... "very bad swords"


Or suppose you know that a certain company produces such a figure of a samurai, as in the photograph. But at the same time, you also know that the swords for her from this company are rubbish, cheap plastic. Make them steel, with a beautiful tsuba and not only that, sew him a ceremonial costume with hagabakama pants so that they drag him along the floor and, to them, to the whole costume, make the appropriate sword. Such a set, if done correctly, can even be sold to Japan!


The shotgun to the 1: 12 figures may well shoot a tiny capsule. Why so? “Awesome! It doesn’t shoot at all, but it shoots at us! Unique selling proposition!"


Seamless silicone bodyoid.


Some firms constantly use the so-called "umbrella brands" to "cut it down easily." Suppose that some company makes such beautiful seamless teloids on a metal frame, flexible, like living people. The hands and head to them are usually made replaceable. And this opens up truly unlimited scope for the creation of an “umbrella”. How? Yes, very simple. There are people of different sizes and, of course, the figure depicting "Comrade Stalin" cannot be of the same proportions as ... the figure of Richard the Lionheart. This is what their creators take into account. But if you can make interchangeable brushes, then you can make interchangeable heads! This is the head of "Comrade Stalin," and it is very well done. But ... what is wrong with exactly the same head, "Stalin is in anger," or ... "Stalin is joking." He said: “Attempt is not torture” and smiled so sincerely, why not. Not all the time, he looked at people as sternly as this “head”. There are photos where he smiles ...


Head for a figure full face


Profile head for profile


But this is also the head, and this figure is also already available. The market is the market, the one everyone is talking about becomes a popular person and always falls into the "reduced world".


As already noted here, it is very important to find for yourself not only an umbrella brand (you can create your own on the basis of a unique product, but it is more difficult and expensive!), But also a topic. The theme “Knights-children” is good in that its figures will be anyway ... cheaper than the figures of knights of adults, because yes, you understand correctly, less material is used on them. And since parents do make purchases, having visited the same Vienna arsenal and decided to please their child with a souvenir, they will think that it is better: Buy a “knight-child” or “knight-adult”. Many, even the most child-loving parents have a habit of saving, so there is a better chance that they will buy what is cheaper!


Such armor in miniature can be made entirely of metal doge and this again will allow you to create a “unique selling proposition”.


The emblem of the figures is very important. Pay attention to how much manufacturing companies hang on the figures of modern soldiers, but do you know why? Because they are ... in camouflage and they have very poor emblems. The eye does not “cling” to bright colors. Well, let him cling to the form. That is why, incidentally, the figures of the British guards on a scale of 1: 12 are indescribably popular. And they are issued in red ceremonial uniforms, and red is the most high-energy color.


These are just 1: 6 scale figures, but they look just like alive!

But there was a time when bright, colorful uniforms were not uncommon on the battlefield, and these were not hussar uniforms very difficult to manufacture. This is ... soldiers and officers of the "colored regiments" of the White Army in our Civil War. Not without reason, for example, they said a ditty about the Kornilovites: “Who is painted like a poster? It's a Kornilov soldier! ”By the way, the uniform of the red ones with multi-colored stars on the budenovki, with“ conversations ”on the chest and stripes on the sleeves, and even in the“ revolutionary red breeches, ”is also very attractive. However, the uniform of the White Guards is still brighter and more colorful. And most importantly, bears emblems very attractive to the human subconscious - skull and bones. Of course, because the symbols of suffering, death, and atonement are what everyone thinks of, in general.


A ready-made kit for the production of figures of “soldiers” on a large scale: the White Guard general, in Circassian with silver gazyry and a Kubachi dagger, and even in a burka (just an amazing costume item on a scale of 1: 6!), “Painted like a poster”, a Kornilovite with a banner and Mauser, and the captain Drozdovets with an order on his chest "For the Ice Camp" in the form of a crown of thorns (again a symbol of suffering!) and a sword crossing it. And let them be confronted by a woman commissar in a leather jacket and a red scarf, and, of course, also with a Mauser, a red cavalry in red pants, and a Baltic sailor, all wrapped in machine gun ribbons and with a red bow on his chest (Fig. I. Zeynalova)

Moreover, the businessman must seize the moment literally on the go, which today again is not so difficult. Let’s take our very same Hermitage ... What do we have there today? And we have complete dominance there ... the Chinese, Koreans and Japanese. Buses with them approach him one by one, so in the famous Knight’s Hall they simply ... do not rest. But there they also opened a hall of oriental weapons, which are much closer to them both in spirit and mentality. And in it we see wonderful pieces of armor that can be worn on ... correctly - figures with faces of the Mongoloids. And it is known that as Europeans get lost among Asian people, so Asians experience psychological discomfort among European people. And then they are led to a souvenir kiosk, and they see ... "all faces are familiar!" Well, how can you not buy as a souvenir something alien, but at the same time dear and close? Whose mentality is open to the wallet, too, haha, and when they see these figures, they will certainly open it.

Only a link to the Hermitage plus a photograph of real armor and its details in a colorful accompanying brochure will guarantee the high historicism of your figure and increase its attractiveness in the eyes of potential buyers. After all, not every manufacturer can boast that his figure is dressed in armor, which is an exact copy of the armor from the collection of one of the greatest museums in the world - the Russian State Hermitage.


Well, this equestrian figure should become the crown of your work ...

        White Guard General, in Cherkessk with silver gazyrs and a Kubachin dagger

        The Kubachi art factory was created in 1960. Then the White Guard generals were gone.
        Judging by the shape and length of the dagger - this is a silvered Ossetian dagger "Kama" under the "basal"

            I know. for I live not far. Kubachintsy have gained a very good reputation among the most demanding weapon connoisseurs. All products have their own original style, which gives out their noble place of origin. As for the decoration of daggers, one of them is ivory hilt, they were not hidden under silver

      If you carefully compare the doll with the original, then the doll does not have such lush hips as a real Monroe. stop Everything, as they say, is in the spirit of the times! And we boldly endure our current ideas about female beauty in the 50s of the last century!

    I am very sorry that I didn’t buy Rommel’s 90’s cooperative action figure on a scale of 1:35. Then I glued the models and it came in handy wherever. And now they don’t come across such, and I don’t look too much ...

            Hockey lion, bravo: the film "Running" is lovely, and Bulgakov has a peculiar style. I admire his description of Woland, and his retinue. When I read, she was disappointed: His master is somehow not bright, Margarita is a bright Woman and Woland is bright, and he ..

          Hello, Sergey! If you hadn’t written about the resemblance to Ulyanov, I wouldn’t have paid attention to him either. I don’t remember something of such “dashing” mustache. And so - it looks healthy. smile
          Kornilovets is confused only by a wooden case with a “Mauser” on the left (?) Thigh and for some reason a second skull painted on the left forearm of his uniform.

            I greet you, Konstantin! There were Ulyanov’s mustaches in the film. And the finest! Well, pince-nez, and as without him, he took it off so reverently. And he dressed it with all reverence. Regarding the cabaret, you also have to hand the cards, like specialist in arms. hi

              By the way, I really liked Ulyanov in this role, I wonder if he had a real prototype, do not know? I somehow did not come across information. Dvorzhetsky in the role of Khludov is also good, but this is still not Slashchev.
              As for the holster, I was more surprised by the second skull on the sleeve, somehow it turns out a bit too long for one arm. smile

                Ulyanov. This is an actor’s facet, granite !!!! I don’t remember his passing roles, I don’t remember and don’t know. I also want to shout: "There were PEOPLE! ACTORS! MOVIES!". Yes, in this film everyone played on * Hurray *, unless Batalov was somehow lost, but the directors probably saw this kind of privacy.

                  A private and life was "lost", a sort of amoeba in pince-nez, living in his own world. So Batalov played this role as it should. Just next to Ulyanov, Dvorzhetsky and Basov, this character was clearly losing. He even lost the esaul, who constantly "dreamed of women." Yes, but they cannot do such films now, and there is no one to play them.

                    Holy truth! Yesaula Yanvaryov played, always a negative character in our movie. But Paramosh was forgotten, however, Evstigneev is also amazingly good !!! And a pair of counterintelligence?

                      Well, Paramon is really a masterpiece, and Colonel Tikhiy from counterintelligence is good, nothing demonic in both, but the bastards are inveterate.

                        I remember this actor (I don’t remember his name!), Who remembered Tikhoi in the “Diamonds for the dictatorship of the proletariat” memorial. He played the Polish intelligence agent who was turned over by Isaev. The master of the episode, but of course, Vladimir Etush does not reach Boris Novikov, Alexei Smirnov, Vladimir Etush .Although Etush and the main roles were (second plan).

        Kind!
        Chevron - "shield" Kornilovsky:

        For the Kornilov infantry, this shield was blue with a red "grenada", most often printed in a printing way (sewn ones were very rare). In the artillery brigade and engineering company, I repeat, the shield was black, but their uniforms were completely black, with a red clearance. not ordinary Kornilov’s red-black.
        The symbolism of the “Adam's head” was only among the Kornilovites from all the color divisions. The legacy of the symbolism of the shock parts of 1917. By the way, in the course of the civil war it came to naught: for example, cockades in the form of a skull were encountered back in 1918, but later it was extremely rare.

              This famous photo is usually attributed to 1919, Kharkov. Actually - Ekaterinodar, the very beginning of 1920. The participant in the Ice Campaign is Captain Petr Lapenko.

                    That's right, but here and the top of the cap is clearly black, you wrote above that the skull on the base is, so to speak, an “early” version of a form that has not yet been fully established.
                    As for the chevron of the “drummers” of General Kornilov, as far as I remember, on the left forearm were only a skull and a two-tone black-red “corner”.

                      This is just a "dark" version of the photo. The Kornilovites had stable - red tulle, black band, white edging (only in the 17th there were variants with a two-color band).
                      There was simply a rejection of the symbols of the 17th as overly revolutionary (however, the Kornilovites were always considered successive Republicans).
                      In the classic form like this:
                      1. Right sleeve - red-black shock "corner";
                      2. The left hand - a blue chevron - “shield” with a skull + chevron-tricolor (it was not worn privately, and was canceled by an official order in 1920)

It would be more interesting to do about the less well-known units - the Samur regiment, for example. Consolidated Rifle. Or illuminate the east, there is one Siberian assault brigade of what it costs (Hungarians, caps, a very atypical set). Well, or Annenkov’s “black hussars” for exotic ...

                    Excuse me, it’s enough to recall the words of the Kornilov march:
                    "We do not regret the past,
                    The king is not an idol to us. "
                    Among the Kornilovites, the command staff was very democratic: the commanders of the regiments, Indeykin and Pashkevich from the peasants, Colonels Shcheglov, Karp Gordienko and General Peshnya (laughter to say, gardener by education) are bourgeois. Colonel Chelyadinov in 1914 worked as a clerk in a bank. Levitov and Dashkevich are children of priests. Mileev - Cossack of Orenburg. Even the guardsman Kutepov (commanded after the death of Nezhentsev in Yekaterinodar) and that son of a man who had only personal nobility, and even got into the guard by fantastic luck.

          I don’t presume, within the framework of the commentary, to outline all the features of the national character of the Japanese, but I am sure that without taking into account these features it will not work to cover them with such a business.
          And to take into account these features in the conditions of "handicraft-garage-amateurish" production - utopia.
          And if you consider that the bulk of Japanese tourists - people who are already over 60 and their “fury” (let's call it aesthetic preferences, although the concept is immeasurably wider) have already taken their final character, then professionals of the appropriate level should work on souvenir products with the corresponding costs .

    I have a textbook on contemporary Japanese advertising published in Germany. Everything is done there very seriously. But knowing how they do it, you can repeat it. And yes - the costs, and the level - yes! And why are the Japanese still sending me model magazines? They believe that I should know ... so that in case of something, immediately use it.
