    Looking for one of these monsters:

    I realize most (or all) were given to bars but I'm hoping a few made it out to civilians. Any info on what it would take to acquire one, monetary or otherwise, would be appreciated.

    Yes I am. I've seen them around at various bars over the past couple years. Really want one for home bar.

    Right on. I can see why you'd want one. Was cool to see a local bar's empties/woodwork show up in a post. That is all, carry on. Good luck in your quest.

    eBay has a couple up there, both $149+shipping. You should buy them both. They have different outfits!!

    I only see the 85 mm (3.5 in) figure. I want the giant guy that towers over bomber bottles.

    Oh damn, didn't realize that size difference. That big guy is probably at least 1 million dollars.

    The key to this puzzle Frank is finding someone who works for or with B United imports. Good chance they have a bunch of those at their warehouse for POS (point of sale) merchandise.
