Are there three Mr. Tikis missing in the world? I took my fake one with me on our trip to the Big Island but most of the time I forgot he was with me. Dang it I wanted him with the lava flow.

Here are the photos of my fake Mr. Tiki II.

At the Hilo zoo.


Looking left at the bay in Hilo.


Looking right at the bay of Hilo.


I looked up this ship and it is really something very special. Check it out.

I hope all three of the Mr. Tiki's show up and keep on traveling. Cheers, Wendy

Hey Wendy!!!! I'm glad at least the fake Mr Tiki is still traveling and seeing the world!
Yes, looks like Mr Tiki III has gone missing Or was this Mr Tiki II that re-surfaced after Mr Tiki III disappeared? I don't think I'll send out a Mr Tiki IV, it was fun for several years but seems increasingly hard to sustain.

As long as I don't lose my Fake Mr. Tiki I'll keep him going when we travel. I have really enjoyed your thread and all the participation over the years. Booooooooooo to those who kept him confined. Wendy

I'll post pictures of the 3 Mr Tikis to the Facebook Tiki groups and see if we can shake one of them loose.

Why don't you make an image of Mr Tiki for download and people can print their own Mr Tiki and take it with them. This would allow everyone to photograph Mr Tiki in different places. They could even glue the image to a piece of cardboard or wood.

MaukaHale that is how I made mine. I just carry the photo in my purse. I think your idea is good. It would be fun to see what photos show up here.

What do you think Mike? Wendy

Mike, have you been able to locate the “real” Mr. Tiki yet? If so, I could take him on a road trip to Iowa, as long as I get him by Friday, December 29.

Wendy’s question about the Mr. Tiki line of succession is answered here:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=35612&forum=1&vpost=752030

Mike, maybe it’s not a bad idea to update the first post with that history?

I like John’s idea of a printable Mr. Tiki, but I also like the real thing. They both have pros and cons, sort of like the tension between books and Kindle.

Hamo, he has not surfaced. I'm afraid he is gone

As far as a printed one like Wendy did, thats a great idea - then anyone can print their own version of him and take pics with him. I don't any pictures other than the ones posted here, I'll see if I can find a good one to post here

Another neat idea would be to come up with a Mr Tiki design that could be 3D printed by anyone (with a 3D printer). Not that I have one, but I do have a friend with one.

All great ideas but I would like to see the real McCoy’s back in circulation fwiw.

Playing with CAD files for a 3D printer is on my bucket list but probably not going to happen soon

Mr. Tiki II’s last known location was on Exotic Tiki Island with Tiki Brian. Did he ship Mr. Tiki off somewhere else?

If you decide on a digital Mr. Tiki, may I suggest a new design, as opposed to a photo of a previous Mr. Tiki? That way it would be easier to distinguish “Mr. Tiki IV”....

I agree. A printed version, whether it's on paper or in 3D, completely defeats the purpose. That would be like me printing out a photo of you Mike and saying you're here in Australia.

So who lost all these Mr. tiki?

There needs to be an investigation.
People need to be held accountable, maybe a thing under their tiki central name that says Mr. tiki abductor.

A deposit could be placed on the receipt of Mr. Tiki to be returned only after Mr. Tiki is passed on to the next destination in a responsible manner.
