    McFarlane Seventies Figure

    Here is a preview of the McFarlane "seventies" figure of Elvis Presley, the third in a series. This one is titled "Elvis, Live in Vegas 1970" and re-creates one of his famous concert appearances in the City of Lights.

    This Elvis figure is dressed in a white fringed jumpsuit and includes a marquee base and microphone. The figure is set to hit retail in mid-October.

    Excellent!

    The third in a series...please refresh my memory, as the Comeback one is the only other I can think of right now.

    The seventies figure is receiving a lot of negative publicity. Many people say that the face doesn't resemble Elvis at all. Personally I quite like the little statue of Elvis in the fringe suit

    What are your opinions about it?

    Of course the 68-figure is awesome, but I think it is to harsh to say that this one sucks - believe me I have seen much worse figures (h)

    Gotta agree wholeheartedly there, for both shown figures. Maybe they're figures of Elvis impersonators?

    OK then Elvos! Thanks. I will keep making a stand in defense of the 70-ies figure

    13 dollars? That is an excellent price. Where did you get yours, I go to Memphis in September, would these be available there?

    yeah, maybe you're right, elvis' face is not perfect, but i think the suit is well done...my opinion, is that the suit is very detailed (nice work)

    i would have to ask if their still available....,And about the resemblance , Elvis 's face is almost impossible to recreate...I never even seen a real good looking wax figure at any museum.....while other artist wax figures look like the real thing...
    He's not just one in a million change million into zillion

    That must be it .... it's a helluva job recreating his face ....

    If you wouldn't mind asking if they still have it, I'd be much obliged!

    He should be fairly easy to sculpt because Elvis resembles many classic statues of the old Greeks through to Michelangelo's David so it's not like it isn't possible......
