Now you can have your own Paul Wheaton Voodoo ACTION Figure Doll!

Frustrated with Paul? Mad about how he runs his site? Take out your aggression on your own Mini-Paul!



He comes with his own personal slice of pie, a lightbulb, and some nice sharp pointy things and a match. Let your imagination run wild! Let Paul run wild in his bare feet and overalls!

   



You can take him with you as you build your hugels, pick your kale, stomp your cob, work in the garden, light your rocket mass heater. Give him to your child to play with, or even to your dog!

 

He's made out of recycled fabric (my old jeans), wool roving, cotton pipe cleaners and cotton embroidery floss.



The first paul can be shipped immediately. After that, expect 1-2 weeks for him to be custom made.

$40.00

US shipping
Get this item delivered to you anywhere in the USA

$55.00

International shipping
Get this item delivered to you anywhere in the world


If you want, you can  buy Paul and a dragon as a set so he can ride valiantly to battle bad guys by doing awesome stuff!

Was that photo intentional - it looks like he's sitting on "Uncle Mud's Bun Heater"!

Suggestions (wanted or not):

1. a woven "Uncle Mud's Bun Heater"
2. an incandescent light bulb - to keep him warm and for those occasional 'light bulb' moments

What, no dormant volcano playset? No ant village? What about Basecamp with the 15 foot hugelbeet?

And maybe a Sepp action figure?

I ran outside while my kids were playing inside and tried to take as many pictures as I could in less than 5 minutes (even taking 5 minutes away from the kids is a scary prospect!) Sticking Mini-Paul on the wheelbarrow was one of the last pictures I took before I ran back inside!

I might be able to make a little light-bulb. I figure anyone who wants Mini-Paul might be able to make their own silly accessories, too ,

Tee-hee, well, Min-Paul took something like 6-8 hours to make. And, if I make all those thing you mentioned, he might be a might cost-prohibitive . That, and I'm really not good at building things. Maybe someone else can make those things . I admit it would be really fun to have all of them for Mini-Paul!

I'm currently making a set of fairies for Judith Brownings great-grands. After that, if I don't have any other orders, I'll really want to make a Jocelyn doll, so Paul and Jocelyn can be sold in a set.

After that, maybe I'll try my hand at Sepp, but I don't know if one should ask permission first before making a felt representation of them.....

Go for it! I honestly don't even have a box of tissues to base such a structure off of! (We use TP and washable hankies for tissues )

Joking. My better half is the one with the knitting skills.

I love your stuff, Nicole. I have to indoctrinate more of my friends and family into the cult of Paul, and then this will be a perfect gift.

Of course, what more cathartic way to relieve frustration than playing with a voodoo doll...

I need to get the paul and dragon combo.  Is that two separate purchases or is there a combo deal?

Awesome!!!

I've actually been trying to figure out how best to do combos. It'd be neat if there was a way to "add to cart" so one could buy multiple items in one transaction without paying extra shipping.

Like, for instance, Judith ordered three fairies from me. To order three here on permies is kind of difficult, because she'd have to do the transaction three times, and would have paid three times the shipping. So, she ended up mailing a check--which worked great for me, but I wonder if there could be a simpler way?

I'd assumed I could just refund the extra shipping money via paypal, but I don't know how complicated that would be.

Another option would be to make up pages for every combo. Like a two fairy page. And a Paul+Dragon page, etc. But, there still might be someone who wants, say a pouch+two fairies+two big dragons+one baby dragon... and then what would I do?

-----------

In this case,

MiniPaul minus shipping = $35
Dragon minus shipping = $45

Shipping should only cost about $5. So, the total cost for both + $5 shipping would be $85. I could make up a new page with MiniPaul+Dragon to do one transaction, or one could do two transactions and I refund $5.

Which do you think is best?

Does Jocelyn want a her figure, too? Once I finish Judith's fairies, I can start on Jocelyn's if you want to have it, too, and shipped with Paul (it's like a road trip, but in a box with a dragon...which, now that I think of it, doesn't sound too terribly pleasant....)

The only way I can think of to make a combo on permies is to make a whole new thread.  

I think the smart play is to make a paypal link and just do a manual transaction.

I'm a total novice at this sort of thing...how do I make a paypal link? Do I just do a hyperlink with my paypall address like "The cost (without shipping) of this is $35. If you are ordering multiple items, you can talley the pre-shipping costs of each item your want, then add $5 for shipping, and send the total amount to my paypall account

AH-HA! I found a tutorial on how to make a link to paypal account, which requires one to make a paypal.me account. I've got to research that more...and since my husband and I share the same paypal, I need to find out if there's any downsides to making a paypal.me account.

Thank you for the bright idea! Now Paul comes with his own little lightbulb!

It's rather fun posing him around. Some pictures turn out better than others, but they're all fun. Here's one of my "outtakes" of Paul telling me I need to need to turn my wood stove into a rocket mass heater so I don't have to use nearly as much wood to heat my house.

What, no one jumped in to answer Paul while I was eating?  No one?

First off, Gir Bot knows a good thing...tacos are great!

Ok, the answer seems kind of obvious, I mean, a dragon has traditionally been a sign of evil while Paul is shouting out to the masses to repent in his quest to save us all.  But I thought I'd do a little digging.

Looks like traditionally the angel sits on the right shoulder....for example:  

http://www.facstaff.bucknell.edu/gcarr/19cUSWW/ESP/AORS.html

and of course here:  


hmmm....more digging required, this looks bad!

An image search gives results all over the board (and lots of things that seem not quite related!).  Here's an example of the opposite.  So it's looking a bit better.

According to Wikipedia "The angel represents conscience and is often accompanied by a shoulder devil representing temptation."  (gosh, I'm pretty sure I'm not making any sense now) and that the early Christian book "The Shepherd of Hermas, of around A.D. 140–150, has a reference to the idea of two angels: "There are two angels with a man—one of righteousness, and the other of iniquity". These angels in turn descend into a person's heart, and attempt to guide a person's emotions. Hermas is told to understand both angels, but to only trust the Angel of Righteousness." (ok, I'm definitely making no sense....time for another stall).  I'm not sure how to digest this....but I find sleeping on it is often of great help (come on guys, jump in....Paul says he's a grizzly bear, but you know there's a big teddie bear in there....Burra, Joseph, Bryant, Dale....jump on it....I'm drowning)

Phew, that was a good power nap.  I decided to pick up the set of Paul and the dragon to see for myself.  I will listen to the voices of mini-Paul and the mini-dragon and I'll report back to you guys.  I'm sure this will provide a solid answer for big Paul.  (and this will provide extra time...Rebecca, Pearl, Shawn, Mike, Roberto,....anyone that's reading this???  Jump on in here!)

Well, the dragon could be rocket stove symbology,  so that makes IT good...
And Paul does awesome things, so that makes HIM good....
And then Paul himself has been known to agitate people...  
I think he could possibly benefit from BOTH of them being good angels....
The one in the middle might be the issue  :D
