I love the Jaws Movie Maniac piece. Bought new at Spencers YEARS ago. Wish I bought them all! Still have the box but it has always been displayed open. My 21-month old daughter is fascinated with it. She sits and points at it saying, "Shok, shok, shok!"
No kidding. Four or five years ago a friend had a local comic book/collectibles/model kits shop, and he had a pristine Movie Maniacs Jaws set that sat on the shelf for months with a price tag of $45. He saw me looking at it one day and said, "I'll knock five bucks off if you'll take it right now. I'm tired of looking at it." :cry Someone finally bought it a couple of weeks later.
On a somewhat related note, why don't we have a "blowing my brains out" smiley?
There's a good replica of the ORCA now available on the website www.premiershipmodels.com
It's a pretty damn accurate replica... and she's big.... She was my commision project which I am now currently updating.
It's worth a look though!
I don't care if this is a dead thread! I've also bought that $99 Orca, and only have gone as far as 3d printing some barrels with rope. I love your details and paintjob. A great inspiration, Tahenytouchup! Thanks.
