Uhrrrr! Those armless versions still creep me out! I have a few in my collection/accumulation, but only because no alternative exists.

I like many of those busts, Bill.
Especially Shaman and Banshee, nice collection!

Not a big fan of the Venus de Milo style or stretchy neck Reed tho.

Based on what I learned in art school, those armless busts--seen in museums around the world--are based on a misunderstanding. The Romans used to make their statues so the heads could be swapped out for others. Saves having to make a whole new statue when a new big wig comes along.

Later sculptors, finding those head and head and shoulders sculptures, took them to be a form unto themselves.

Really like the Watcher, Angel and Quicksilver. Polaris is cool as well. Definitely prefer the ones with arms!

You know - if you cut that arm a bit at an angle and push it up against the wall, its like she's phasing through!

I feel there's potential there to make it look like she's phasing through a wall.
