Original Theater Promotional "Dobby"
With movable right arm! And, the exact casting flaw they each had.
We have scored the internet and cannot find any other Dobby being offered anywhere in the World with the Theater Original "Adjustable Arm" and the tell tale casting mistake just above the left knee. THIS IS A VERY RARE DOBBY!
This is not a line run or reproduction or secondary series.
IT IS ONE OF THE RARE THEATER PROMOTIONAL DOBBYS
Passive little Dobby, The elf from Harry Potter can now be yours as this adorable Dobby. This hard resin statue has the code number (sO3) stamped on the Official Harry Potter Logo. It stands a full 2 feet 4 inches and has movable hand.
This particular Dobby was a prize in a Theater Promotion contest in Arkansas City, Kansas and the winner has now asked us to sell this original promotional Dobby statue which is one of the rare theater promotional give-a-way Dobbys. It does not have the acrylic display case because they never had the case for it when it was in the contest give-a-way. The Burford theater ran the contest through the Arkansas City Library where they had a wonderful Harry Potter display along with this Dobby. It was won with the luck of the draw from a simple drawing type contest in 2003.
When the movie came out this was a Theater Promotion Contest drawing. They came as promos from the movie for the theaters to give away and in this regard,are even more Special and of course far more collectable. They were a very limited production item made for Theater Promotion, and in casting they each had a small type crack on the Left Knee
It is is beautiful condition but not perfect mint condition.
This is one of the "RARE" Original Theater Productions for Advertising the movie release.

Please Note: That $50 of the price being asked shall be used for Shipping/packing/insurance.
Due to the size, weight and safe shipping packing that must be used, unless you can hand pick it up and then the added $50 will be cheerfully refunded to you at the time of hand pick up delivery in Arkansas City, Kansas USA.
On this item we have to do that because our regular shipping simply will not handle the costs for this fantastic collectable, and we wanted you aware of this fact before deciding to order this original Theater Promotion Dobby.
Dobby!! Lovable and mischievous the house-elf who served the Malfoy family and befriended Harry Potter. Beautifully detailed, and statue stands approx. 28 inches tall.
This is an original Theater Promotional Dobby that was used, and promoted the book/movie release.
Very few were made for this purpose?
In the originals used exclusive to the Theater Promotions "Dobby" had a tell tale (small crack line on the left knee) This unique difference ONLY was on the promotional Dobbys used for the Theaters to promote the movie release at their theater.
Since the release artists have tried to duplicated them (and the copies sell for over $500) but this is one of the few remaining originals. The statue is in very good shape except few minor scrapes on his nose (see picture) and the casting imperfection crack in his left knee (which was a common flaw only in the originals). Again this is not a copy or reproduction run?
Code imprint is (s03)
It is an original, limited production display for Thaeater Promotion, and that makes it highly collectable. It was won by our collector now asking us to market this unique Original Theater Promotional Dobby.
Our collector is now serving in the Army over seas. She won Dobby in 2003.
House Elves have special magical powers but are bound to obey their masters. Dobby was formerly the Malfoy's house elf, but Harry tricked Lucius into setting him free. As a free elf, Dobby went to work at Hogwarts and although he was at times an annoyance, he remained loyal to Harry, using his special powers to protect him in the direst of times.
