Christmas Stories: Gentle Giant’s 2009 Yak Face Christmas Bust

For a few brief years, I was on Gentle Giant’s holiday bust gift list. These very limited statues go out to some folks in the collectible community and are also sold to members of their collectors club. Last year, I took pics of the 2008 piece, which was an awesome Commander Cody wearing a scarf and holding a light-up snowman. While that piece was limited to 1500 pieces, last year’s Saelt-Marae (better known as Yak Face) bust only had 200 made (I’ve got #173). Yak Face here seems like your basic bust t first, but it comes with magnetic antlers and a candy cane to go in place of his regular cane to liven up the festivities. It’s a really fun piece with a furry beard which kind of creeped the missus out, but I can’t get enough of. To get an idea what the regular bust looks like, check this link. I think I got Yakky late in the season last year so this is the first time he’s made his way into our Christmas decorations. I think he fits right in!
