Tim Bruckner Shop: Edgar Allan Poe Bust Kit

Edgar Allan Poe Bust Kit

September 2012 - The Tim Bruckner Shop Releases New Bust of Edgar Allan Poe

"Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -
Perched, and sat, and nothing more."

- Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven

Has your bust of Pallas seen better days? Tired of brazen blackbirds perching willy-nilly on your priceless antiques? Well fret not! With this new original resin model kit by Tim Bruckner, troublesome ravens are a thing of the past. Titled "Boo!", this unpainted 11.5" bust depicts famous author Edgar Allan Poe mouthing the word "Boo!" It won't fail to frighten off the most courageous of crows, and possibly even an aggressive orangutan. Assembles easily! Paint optional!
