    I have not gone to one since I lived out in California. So that was a good 15 years ago...crazy because from college until then I lived at Taco Bell for a good decade. My college buddies and I even had a code of "Let's run for the border" when we were hungry.

    I even got the Taco Bell counter display with Darth Maul from TPM! For a couple years I was really into those store displays (Barnes and Nobles, Toys R Us, WalMart, Taco Bell, Full size stand ones I had for Amidala, Darth Maul and (cringe) Jar Jar from Pepsi products, even video game ones as well) but at the end they are so huge and take up so much space I literally traded them to a local comic shop for some statues.

    Looks good. Glad they fixed his head (vs. the concept art).

    Just as I pointed out in a previous post, I knew this was a work in progress, and a few things needed to be changed, which they did ...

    - The straight brow line needed to be changed. (Check marked)
    - The bony cups surrounding the eyes needed to be arched. (Check marked)
    - Beard/hair flared out too much and needed to be changed. (Check marked)
    - The size of the head also changes the whole perspective, so it needed to be bigger. (Check marked)
    - The body needed to be slim down (Check marked)

    * Now, if only they would do something about that pointing hand so the bust could be displayed with the severed arm/stump, it'd be perfect. Otherwise displaying him with the blaster would be the way to go to maintain a sensible pose.

    Here is a comparison of how the sketch looked and the colorized digital sculpt that's been properly resized and the head restructured and re-positioned. I removed the "Pending Approval' lettering to make the image a little more clear for comparison purposes ...

    Looks a lot better but I'm still not loving the pointy finger.

    That was my basic reaction. It's not bad, but it's not great either.

    Regardless, I'm happy to have another original Kenner figure being made into a bust.
