I've seen photos of this figure up close, & personally I would'nt bother, I've got better things to spend my money on, it hardly looks like him, if you want this kind of item stick to the McFarlane figures, they cost less & one in a while they get close, ie. The Jailhouse Rock figure.

Ifyou go tho their website, you can see a close-up of this. Its described as a 'prototype' and I hope it changes as it looks nothing like Elvis. No if it was a Dracula figure, they would be getting close...

Awful. Simply awful. The face looks more like Danny Kaye, and can someone please show me the photo in which Elvis is stood doing a Norman Wisdom impression? Let us not forget that this has been authorised by the same people who shut down and prosecute other businesses for selling what they call "The Tackiest of Trinkets". The words "Pot" and "Kettle" spring immediately to mind. "Mr Grimsdale.. Mr Grimsdale..."

Viva.... I was crying with laughing when I read your post! You've really captured the escence of what I was thinking when I saw the figure. The analogy of a Norman Wisdom impression is spot on! Thanks for making me smile!!!

I agree that it really does not seem worth it, but if the fabric was actual fabric from one of Elvis' wardrobe then it would be worth at least $50.00 :}

Glad to have cheered you up Crazyann! You can usually tell how good these things are by the fact that they have to give you a hint as to who it is by putting the name in huge letters underneath. I especially like the fact that "the clothes are made of real fabric" is considered a selling point. It's a bit like saying "The name on the stand is made from real letters". And all for the very modest sum of $299. I can see the advertising now: "Ladies and Gentleman, for the very first time ever, an Elvis Presley statue will be available with or without a guitar in this limited edition, unlimited price figurine. Before EPE sold everything...Elvis fans bought anything" Who needs On Tour out-takes when you've got this. Priceless.
