You didn't carefully read the post. According to Tiki Master, it is a Walmart in Las Vegas with a Tiki display.

Yes, correct. It is in Las Vegas... Unfortunately here in Hawaii the WalMart does not have a lawn and garden section, so the largest Tiki at the Walmart in Honolulu is 4 inches tall made of plastic.

Here are more pics of the Tikis at that Super Center:


and yes the prices are ridiculously low!


Aloha,
Kawika

I know not everyone will share my opinion, but most of these things are beyond horrendous. They give "bad tiki" a bad name. Maybe there's a decent one buried in that wall display that can be repainted and put behind a bush.



Are these really "hand carved" and "from Hawaii?" I doubt it very much. Those Ku tikis look decent in the photo but why do they have to make them stacked like that?

Is that a tiki guitar hanging up there?

I think they're surprisingly good, I mean for Walmart. Remember, things like this are great to use as building blocks. For instance, I've been waiting for just the right size, and okay enough looks so I can buy 4 sturdy ones and use them as legs for an outdoor lounge table.

Also I know from experience that those cheap Walmart/Target Tikis can actually stand the elements a bit, and even if they can't, you don't feel so bad about it.

As for the bad paint jobs, that's easily fixable.

I've also seriously given thought to cutting open two of those big boys and seeing what kind of congas I can make out of them, or place congas inside them.

Thanks for the WalMart tip. I was there the other night and checked the garden section for tiki (as I always do) but found nothing. I'll keep checking!

you should know by now that when i'm pissed off i never carefully read anything!! LOL....i was just so livid that once again, the midwest was gonna get screwed by not having any tiki in the walmarts here...not that those tikis are that great, but there are a couple decent ones that i can use for filler in my new tiki room endeavor.....which helps in cutting costs down on decor .........

Tipsy - Vegas is considered the ninth Hawaiian Island anyway, so in some ways you were right about that being a Hawaiian Wal-Mart.

....godamn those tikis are pricey!!! for walmart, no less.....i had an agent in vegas stand in front of the display whilst i sat here 2,000 miles away in front of the 10 ft monitor of my super villian lair top secret headquarters as she read off the prices of each tiki i pointed out.....holy crap...for these crap ass lookin tikis they want more than what they are worth to me......walmart has to put down the crack pipe.....whatever happened to good ol' exploitation of third world denizens??? maybe the carvers finally got a union together.......i dunno, but i felt that i can buy this indo-tiki stuff all day long on the internet at half the price for some of these......have fun!!! i'm gonna take a pass on this one........
