    Wow, that Life Is Beautiful bust is awesome. Roberto Benigni! Bellissimo!

    Also like that "Life Is Beautiful" bust of Roberto Benigni! Really cool likeliness! And for once, not another military type figure, but instead the depiction of a rather nice anti-war character! (y)

    Do they have a site? Where can they be found/contacted?

    Hi Martin,

    Sorry, I guess I haven't read your post down to the end :oops:

    As I'm not on FB, it's the website I'll check.

    Thank you! (y)


    Cheers!

    Edit: Weird, the only bust, from the 3 posted above, available for sale on their website, is the "Go Back" one ($40) .
    There are a few others on their main page, but none of those are listed on their Shop page neither!
    Located in South Korea... Hope they have some retail dealers in Europe...

    Re-watched the movie ("LifeIs Beautiful") last night. Emotive indeed!

    Had watched it many years ago so didn't remember this detail, that he (Roberto Benigni) only uses that scarf (?) covering his head, at the very end of the film, after hiding his son and looking for his wife, just before he gets caught :(

    Anyway, for ordering from PaPa Miniatures, does anyone know how to do it? Contacting them via their website?



    Cheers!

    Thanks Nap.

    I know, but except for the "Go Back" bust above, none other is listed for sale on their website!
    As I'm not on FB...

    The ideal would be that they would have some retail dealer in Europe, from where it would be more convenient to order, otherwise from South Korea, shipping costs + custom duties here... that would become pretty expensive I suppose... Will see anyway. I really like that "Life Is Beautiful" bust, and the announced price is fair enough, so I'll find a way.


    Cheers!
