well tikijakalope...

i've been collecting tiki and disneyland items for almost 20 years and i never thought fake mugs would be made. there was a time in los angeles when you couldn't walk thru a thrift store and find at least 10 - 15 mint mugs on the shelves. i do know that some of the 'rare' tiki and disneyland items you find on ebay now are fakes or at least repro's. i'm amazed that a tiki bowl can go for over 500 clams. as in all collecting, knowledge is the buyer's only weapon.

Here's a photo of the Tangaroa tikis dropping down.


Looking at the one you bought, Tiki63, I'd guess that it probably isn't one of these, but was maybe a tiki from somewhere else around the building. I've got a few pics of some of the smaller tikis (like near the exit stairs) that most people don't ever notice.

A very cool piece of Tiki Room though! Congrats!

thanks fellas...yeah, i have seen those on tikiroom.net. great pics. of this type of tiki, i've seen four different styles. they measure around 15+- inches and are made of fiberglass. the same ones seem to be used for the exterior of both the tiki room and the tahitian terrace. a friend of mine has three except the swingin' tiki pictured above. some were removed during remodeling and some were knapped like little bits for forbidden booty!

you'd be amazed to find out how much of the tiki room is in private hands!

Tiki hula, dude, someone did lift that one at the exit. I took the same photo, and no hanging tiki. Since everything in the Tiki rOom is made from molds, and molds are a negative of the object. There's a store room somewhere with the entire Tiki roOm in reverse. Completely assembled as the exact opposite of the Tiki rOom as we know it. It'd be like the haunted mansion faces that stare back and follow you. Okay, maybe not, but that was going thru my mind, right before the thunder hits and makes all the little kids cry.

yeah, much of the tiki room is from molds, but you'd be surprised how much there is from '63. when the front thatched hut that covered the entrance collapsed a few years ago, Uti and some other parts were scrapped. i know where one of the pieces went and it was the exact original from '63...that thing had been exposed to the elements for almost 40 years and hadn't been replaced. these days, the only things disney replaces are things they can reproduce on an epson printer.

Many of the California Tiki Room tikis are used as decorations at the Polynesian Resort here in Florida. There's about 5 or 6 Utis there, in different places.

Upstairs on the way to the monorail there's what looks like a fresh Pele and Rongo, so I'm guessing they have duplicates of the molds here in Florida at Central Shops too.

The best thing about seeing them here is that you get to look at their backsides too. Rolly Crump detailed the backs -- one of them has a smiley face on its ass.
