"Dobby has your owl, sir!" Actually, it's a sock-- the sock that set him free. This hand-painted mini bust of Dobby from the Harry Potter
films stands roughly 6-inches tall and is a 1:6 scale representation of the famous house-elf. Laser scanned in 3 dimensions directly from actors, original costumes, and props seen in the movies, this collectible piece is incomparable in its level of authenticity. Digital modelers processed the raw data, sculptors perfected the design, and painters brought the piece to life. We hope you enjoy it!
Dobby was the downtrodden house-elf servant of the Malfoy family for many years, where he was subjected to frequent threats, humiliation, and abuse. Most house-elves seem to accept this as standard practice and do not seek to change it. Dobby, however, disliked his masters and sought to help Harry when he heard that they were plotting against him. His commitment to Harry's cause (and his hatred for the Malfoys) was enough to make him willing to do this… even if it meant ironing his hands. Harry (with some helpful advice from Dobby along the way) managed to thwart Lucius Malfoy's plan and even tricked him into giving Dobby a sock. The act of giving clothes releases a house-elf from servitude. Hence, Dobby was free.
