Does anyone have the instructions for this set?

I know that Brickset has a link for it here, but I cannot find a parts list, inventory, or instructions. Much less any real pictures for it. I'd love to add this to my Summer Build list... but I can't do it without help. Thoughts?

    Well I didn't build this for two summers because, well. No instructions. Anyone?

    Nope. Did you ever find instructions for the Wizard?

    Gosh, you could have LDD'ed this in a whole lot less time. You have more than enough info in the picture above to make it happen.

    @ecmo47 yeah well I could've done a lot of things in two years. But, well, priorities. Want to make the LDD file for me? I'll pay you a buck via PayPal.
    @ChgoMatt nope. Do you have it? Maybe @ecmo47 will do it in LDD for us?

    The backside needed a little interpretation and his eyes must have been a couple large stickers (or a felt pen!)

    It looks to me like the eyes are 1x1 round plates set into technic bricks.

    ^ I thought that too. However after checking both Brickset and Bricklink, it appears the 1x1 round flat tiles aren't made in black. :(

     Just PM me an email address and I'll send you the LDD file and parts list.

    I changed the eyes to 2x4073 (Plate, Round 1 x 1 Straight Side, black) and they look better.

    Ah, probably just my eyesight. I read "plate" but saw tiles in the original image. To me the eyes look flat, no plate bump.

    Silly question, but did you try LEGO CS?
    May be a shot in the dark, but you never know.

    ^ I sent an email to LEGO CS who replied:

    This model was made by our LEGO® certified professional Sean Kenney. I am attaching the link for his  website to contact him to see if he has the instructions.

    @ecmo47 I got the file and loaded (successfully this time) LDD on my computer. It works!
    The liberties you took with the tail are very nicely done. Looks good!
    @SirBen he never got back to me. Ah well.
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
    Well, I did my interpretation before I saw Sean Kinney's picture of the FAO Schwarz build. I think I like mine a little better as the original has a pretty big, err, "rear-end"!

    @ecmo47  have you seen the front page of brickset? Huw posted pictures... Want to do another couple LDD items? Anyone up for a challenge?http://www.bricksetforum.com/discussion/comment/348169#Comment_348169

    @mnartgirl that's it! Thank you so much. I'm curious as to what sort of bag it was. Sealed? New? Thank you for finding this for us.

    Anyone else do a part list from these?  I came up with 144 bricks.  Have it in a Brickstock file, sorted by step, if anyone would like to compare/confirm.  Or, I'll do the compare/confirm if you have a parts list.
