    Decent portrait of Tom Hanks well up to Young's standard quality. Wasn't there already a similar SPR bust on the market?

    Colin, that one is long gone and very hard to find. This is as you say a decent portrait. I know I want one. Not sure about the boxart, but that is just my opinion.

    Nice bust but just an OK likeness, the box art may be a little to blame. I'm now spoiled by Nuts Planet and Life Miniatures when it comes to figure likenesses.

    Could it be sold with two heads? I would use the other one to make a Forrest Gump :D

    Recognisable likeness but neck and shoulders oversized in my opinion. Guess thats the 'Young' style. Nice subject though.

    Yep, now that its been mentioned, I think the thick neck makes the head look a little too short/fat. A thinner neck will definitely help.

    Good likeness of Tom Hanks. Personally, I'd like the option of a helmet, but I'm not complaining.

    Totally agree the option of the helmet would be a great inclusion

    Good point Monty and tony had not thaought of that even though I mentioned that the lightness on the forehead looks like farmers suntan from wearing a helmet it would have been a very good addition to the figure

    I love this one like others Young busts but I also think the neck is oversized.
    Also I would prefer an option with helmet.
