Danielle Stops By To Visit Ian (Photostory)


Raven has been at Ian's new place all morning.  He's asked her to help decorate.  She started off with the two of them watching a little HGTV.  She's planned a 'look and see' trip to Ikea, to get some ideas. Danielle and the boys are supposed to be stopping by, first.  It's been a couple of months since Ian has seen her and the boys.  He's been so busy with work, night school, and moving, that socializing has taken a back seat.

"I can't believe you have me watching these shows.  Can't you just tell me what I need?"  (Ian)

"This is your place.  It needs to be about you, not me."  (Raven)
"You could always move in and then it would be about us."  (Ian)

"Your mom and my dad would kill us both.  Besides, there's not enough closet space for all my clothes.  Now back to the issue at hand.  We need to make a list of everything you need.  And from what I can see, it's going to be a long list.  Do you have any paper?"  (Raven)
"Yes, check the bottom drawer of my dresser.  I think I put all the paper supplies in there."  (Ian)

Ian stares at Raven as she makes her way to the dresser.  He's not exactly sure when it happened, but he is head over heels about her.  Sure he still gets approached by many women, young and old, and occasionally he flirts a little too much, but it's Raven that has carved a space in his heart.

"Is it in there?"  (Ian)

"Yup."  (Raven)
 
Raven reaches for a pencil, but before she can grasp it, the doorbell rings.

*DING DONG*

"That must be my sister."  (Ian)
"I'll get it."  (Raven)

"Who is it?"  (Raven)
"Danielle"  (Danielle)

"Hello.  Come on in."  (Raven)
"Hello, Raven.   Long time no see."  (Danielle)

"Hello sis.  Hey Julian and Jacob.  Come on in."  (Ian)

Julian is so excited to see his uncle Ian.

"Hi uncle Ian!  Where's Goldie?"  (Julian)
"Goldie is at the groomers.  I have to pick her up later today."  (Ian)
"Come on in.  Take a seat."  (Ian to Danielle)

"I love the new place.  It seems perfect for you.  A lot more room than your last place."  (Danielle)
"I know.  I lucked up when I found it.  It's the last one they had available."  (Ian)
"I take it you told mom about it."  (Danielle)
"Yes, and she's already trying to come up to see it."  (Ian)
"That lady just loves traveling.  You know she can't sit still."  (Danielle)

"So how are you doing, Raven?"  (Danielle)
Raven proceeds to catch Danielle up on her life.

In the meantime, Julian has set his eyes on the model car on Ian's desk. 

"So how's Rod?" (Ian)
"Wonderful."  (Danielle blushing)
"I haven't talked to him in awhile.  I need to give him a call."  (Ian)
"Maybe you and Raven can come over for dinner soon.  Let me know what's convenient for you two, and I will make it happen."  (Danielle)
"Bet."  (Ian)
"Gotta go potty."  (Jacob)
"Okay, Jacob.  Hold on."  (Danielle)

Danielle gets up to take Jacob to the bathroom.  Julian, is unsuccessful at reaching the car, so he decides to climb up on the bed instead.  Raven grabbed the pad of paper to start on the list.

"I hope there's toilet paper in there."  (Ian)
"Me, too."  (Danielle)

Julian is just chillin'.  He's just happy to be with his uncle Ian again.

While they are doing all of that, Ian will show off his new body.

Best to do it without the pants for the full effect.  As you can see there is articulation all over this body.     In the abdomen area, there are three points of articulation.  

Monkey Depot had free shipping last weekend, and I took a peek.  I was looking for a body for one of my darker skinned guys.  Found it, then noticed the same body in tan.  Thought it might work for Ian.  It was worth a try.  If it didn't work for Ian, it could work for someone else.  It was $22.99

It comes with four sets of hands. He has one set on. I love the balled fisted ones.  Perfect for boxing.  I will probably use the other two sets for some of the PowerTeam guys who have been sharing hands.

It comes with three neck bobs.  I used the longer neck bob for Ian.  I had to glue it on, but there's still full neck motion.

For the most part, this is a very sturdy body.  However, there are these little plugs in the back and on parts of the leg.  I'm not sure why they are here.  It doesn't bother me, but I thought it was important to point them out so there wouldn't be any surprises.  The good news is now we will see a lot more of Ian.

    1. william - Thanks. I'm glad to have a place that has all the rooms, but doesn't take up too much space. I like this body better than some of my other action figure bodies.

  2. Ian looks great! Have you ever considered getting bendy hands? They are only a dollar or 2 and look natural. They go into so many positions and really cut down on the cost of buying different hands

    1. Sebc - Thanks for visiting and commenting. I bought two pair of AA bendy DID bendy hands, but as is, they don't work well for the PowerTeam guy. I will have to see if I can alter them to make them look better. The PT guys are the only guys I have that need hands. Even the white bendy hands have the piece at the wrist that make them too cumbersome. What brand do you normally buy?

    2. At first u had that problem too but I learned to alter them. A flat pair of hands have Strait pins. I removed the pins and replaced them with strong but thin wire. They look normal and are really flexible. I suggest jewlery head pins for wire. Usually DiD hands work for me but I alter mine most of the time. Here's the link to alter the hands : lassirenofeire.deviantart.com/art/Mini-Bendy-Hand-Tutorial-318556643

    1. Mustiwait - I like that this body has enough height to it. Some of them don't. I may add a couple more before it's all said and done.

  7. Great place and body! That's a lot of articulation. You know the price gives me pause, but you certainly get a lot for it.
