    Makes sense that heavier droids make prints and the troopers don't.

    Plus the troopers are all positioned closer to the perimeter rim of the statue.

    PLUS even IF we were to take the "reality" into account and feel
    the statue has failed in that regard, and then ditch that conclusion for art's sake....

    ... then the "theme/drama" of the statue is along the lines of
    "we've discovered DROIDS have the plans AND they have escaped"...

    ...so you take artistic liberty and focus on the vacated droids prints rather
    than the lingering troopers.

    I'd say, the worst thing about that statue's "reality" is no R2-D2 trail.

    same reason why they don't show basic things like genital details or nipplage on most figures with skintight clothing... Unstable molecules!

    Love my Marvel Select Thing, as well as the Hulk, Abomination, Juggernaut and Thanos - they all look terrific standing next to my Megos!

No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life."

    It's actually a nice figure, and a lot of folks draw the Thing like that. I've never seen his thighs that big though. And good call on no rocks on this legs. We know he has them...he wore shorts for 40 years!

    I always thought the pants were drawn as hiding the rocks.

    Aha, more great bookends!
    $20!
    Because of the weight and size, these guys cost around $45 here. I'm green with envy!

    The Marvel Select line is really cool for the larger characters like Hulk, Thing, Abomination, Juggernaut, Thanos, Red Hulk, etc.

    That's a great price, too. They are way more expensive here in the UK.
