yeehaw!
I LOVE these!
This is my x-mas gift to myself.
I've been coveting these, but could not find them on the local retail scene.
Then they show up in bulk on ebay.

There was a short thread about these a while back & I've been itchin to get one ever since.
I know Tikifish has one that I think she got in Japan?

Yes my brother bought it in TOkyo for me as a gift. I think I am going to paint ths sides brown though as the green kinda clashes with my decor.

Oh, I can see my kids on the Antique ROadshow in 2030 - "Well, if your mother hadn't painted this exquisite example of tiki memorabilia brown, it would have been worth 10,000 dollars. As it stands now, it's worth about $7.50. Teddibly sorry!"

Holy crap that was quick!
I got mine today.
They even sent it gift wrapped.
I opened it in front of my pal Mary today. I could tell by the look in her eyes that she fell in love with it, so I gave it to her for an early x-mas gift.
I owned it for about 30 seconds!
It is very cool, but kind of too heavy for it to stand up like in the picture.
The moai is like heavy plaster & the box is plastic.
it was cool enough that I'm still going to order another one.
