I spy, with my little eye, a Spy Fly

That sound you heard?  It was me, screaming with joy over my new Spy Fly.  Through some eBay mojo and the identification skills of a friend (who needs to finish a questionairre — nudge, nudge) I happened to pick up one of the static or test Spy Flys from the Golden Compass film.  I had held out hope that Noble Collection would complete their replica, but after months of delays they finally canceled it.

I guess I’ll have to make the box for it.   Photos after the jump.

While it looks extremely fragile, it’s surprisingly sturdy.

The wings can be swiveled back to reveal a single brass wing and clear plastic piece.

    Its starting to sound like Noble didn’t ship out the Spy Flies to anyone. Very strange.

    I say this is better than the Noble reproduction anyway. You made out well.

    I think the movie just tanked so badly that they didn’t finish it. My alethiometer was a long time coming too, but at least that gets more mileage because of the books (I know, the Spy Fly is in the first book, but it’s not that big a piece.)
