Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.
I ANXIOUSLY awaited its arrival and was NOT disappointed!! It came very well packaged and had no damage or issues. It is so realistic that you MUST approach curiously. I had it in the backseat of my truck when I picked up my son from school and you should have seen his eyes!!! We named him Phillip. Phillip gets to stand in the living room and guard the house. He also gets to wear a special hat and collar at Christmas! It's just too much fun to see how people react to him. I will be buying more unique statues in the future, for sure!! I'm not sure that "too many" is even possible, as cool as these statues are!!! Thanks Toscano!!!
