Armored Spirit Bear by WormsandBones Armored Spirit Bear by WormsandBones
Armored Spirit Bear on Etsy
I won't lie, I was so excited about this guy, I took about sixty different shots. This is the same spirit bear as pictured in our Killarney park photo, with considerable armor upgrades courtesy of :iconserenfey:, whose work is just gorgeous. The maille itself is made partially using rubber rings so it can be removed, and features swarovski crystals... because if you're riding an armored bear into battle, you might as well bling that sucker up a bit.

The bear himself is roughly 5" tall at the withers on all fours, about 10.5" long, and 11" standing on his hind feet. His head and feet are cast in resin from our original sculpts, hand painted and sealed then assembled using ball and socket joints for a realistic range of movement and durability. His pelt is a collection of creamy faux furs, sewn by Bones the patient.

Reminds me of the Golden Compass book, with the armored bears. It also reminds me of the third Red Alert game, where armored bears fought on the Soviet side. Guess there is some inspiration.

This has to be one of the coolest sculpts I have ever seen. Not only is it beyond neat that it can be posed so much, it looks brilliant while doing so. Kudos on a fantastic creation, and thanks for sharing!

He reminds me of David Rain/ Ingavar from the Last dragon chronicles.

I love this bears colour scheme, I remember you had one like this at anime north just past, and it caught my eye right away :D I love the armour so much, do you know if *SerenFey takes open commissions for mini armor like this? :meow:

It was probably the same bear - we kept him around after anime north specifically because I wanted to get him armored up. :) I'm sure she would be able to do something similar as a commission - drop her a line!

The movie is brilliant and the CGI is fantastic. It's a shame they never made any sequels though! Really left me hanging haha

Have you read the books? They're amazing, my favorites. 
I'm still not over the fact that the sequels weren't made (even though I don't like the movie that much, especially it's name).

Sometimes I like critters with 'extra gear', sometimes I find it distracts from the design. This guy though... I like him about 10X more with his armor than without! LOL
