    You never know. Unless you are a forensic doctor, to the untrained eye, skulls are skulls. For all purposes those hanging from his staff could be the ones you mentioned. I guess we can leave that opened to individual interpretation? Anyway, I'm hoping to see a painted sample of him in July during SDCC.

    Best leave that image to my overdeveloped imagination..... Lol

    Hope when you see a painted prototype of Amanaman it doesn’t disappoint. Although arguably you did much of the design work for GG with your mock up images...

    Haha! One can only try. As long as Amanaman is not painted red with blue stripes and he doesn't end up holding a baseball bat instead of a staff, I'll be fine. Just the thought of that happening ...wow!

    Haha

    There has to be a mock up of that for a cringeworthy laugh! Mustn't forget the Micky ears..... LOL

    Anyway before this thread goes down a rathole and we give Disney marketers ideas we really wished we hadn't.... I will reign myself in a bit!

    AMANAMAN Mini Bust - 2018 PGM Gift #3

    Really hope the skulls are hanging off by a little leather strap or something , and not just sculpted to the staff !

    I certainly hope so. They could do something similar to what they did with the Logray mini bust, where the bones are hanging from the staff using a string. A leather strap would look better though. It's a little difficult to tell, but I think the movie prop had the skulls attached to the staff by long strands of hair coming out from their tops. That could be something they could do as well, if they want to go that deep into detailing it.

    Yeah. As long as they're hanging down loose it'll be cool.

    I'm sure they'll use string for that, but leather would be cool!

    Going back to what somebody said earlier about them not really being interested in any of the offerings this year, I'm on the other side of that fence and I love every offering this year! I don't think there's been an offering in a long time where I wanted every piece and at that point in time there weren't as many offerings then as there are now.

    The first time I commented on the space trooper I did not know what it was, but after I saw it I thought it was a cool idea for a PGM gift! I thought it was a space trooper from the old Hasbro EU figure line.

    Bespin Leia... Leia is always a great choice! Now all we need is Bespin Luke and to hope they don't butcher his face like they did on the statue!

    Amanaman... totally stoked about this! I've been wanting this bust for for a long time, but never thought they'd actually make one!

    Darth Maul collectors series statue is pretty freaking cool too! Even though my collection is going away from the PT, Darth Maul is still one of my favorites!

    The jumbo figure... well ok, perhaps I don't care too much about that one, but if I collected that line I'd be all over it!

    IMO if the skulls are indeed attached to the staff by their hair, I would rather see them just sculpted on.

    Yeah. I've been looking at a bunch of pictures and they are indeed, hanging by their hairs. If the skull are attached to the staff by the way of a string or leather strap, while it would have a more realistic look, I can see the possibility of it coming undone. If they are sculpted on, that would offer a less fragile staff, and will eliminate the possibility of whatever could be used to keep them attached to the staff, coming off. That said, if they stay true to the concept design, I believe they will be in fact sculpted on.
