I happened across these on a walk from my hotel three weeks ago. Man, what a a cool surprise! I vaguely remembered a Tiki Road Trip reference to large moai stored outside in Hollywood that were intended for a Laverne and Shirley show but not used; the employee I spoke with knew nothing about that. He did say they'd been used in an Eddie Murphy film and that they'd next be used in a Kevin Costner film, Rapa Nui. Costner was already involved as a producer in a Rapa Nui in 1994, so I assume the guy had his time frame wrong.

Ooh de lally! I'll have to check that out! Thanks for the tip -- I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to meet up with you while you were in town, I hope we'll get another chance sooner rather than later.
