In this article, we will be taking a look at Knight Models Severus Snape 1:10 scale bust. I actually stumbled upon this bust by accident. I was checking out some bust painters on Facebook and saw someone had painted Severus Snape. I thought it might have been a 3D print so I did a quick Google search and found out it was a resin cast bust. And, I can tell you this I was happy to hear that. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and so is my mother-in-law. She actually asked what I was looking at and I told her. The next thing you know I had four Knight Models busts arriving in the mail. And, in the coming weeks, we will be taking a look at all of the busts.
So let us start off with the contents of the kit. The bust comes in a collectible tin, with two pieces of foam and a red piece of paper to protect the product, the resin bust, and a sealed Hogwarts Envelope with a collectible card inside. I didn’t open the envelope but you can see the card on the back of the tin.
There is only one piece inside the tin and that is the bust of Severus Snape played by Alan Rickman. The likeness to Mr. Rickman is incredible, the sculptor did an amazing job of creating the bust. There are only two mold lines and they are strategically placed on the lower back of the sculpts pedestal. Those mold lines will be very easy to clean up and make smooth. There are absolutely no mold lines on the front of the figure. There is what looks like mold lines across the shoulders of the bust DO NOT REMOVE THESE! Those lines belong there even though it is not sculpted in it is part of the back of his robes. Here are photos of this amazing sculpt of Alan Rickman as Severus Snape.
