PHIL LOONEY, I APOLOGIZE

This is most definitely Phil at Poptown's area of expertise, so I'd like to apologize in advance for stepping on his toes a little here, but damn... what is up with this statue?

Diamond Select

Holy cats, sports fans! This just seems like such a waste of so many things... time, money, natural resources, and the list goes on and on.

Those of you who don't recognize what's "happening" with the bust, don't feel bad. (In fact, feel good - FEEL REALLY GOOD!) But, it captures a bit of cinematic history as Megatron begins his Galvatron upgrade via Unicron from Transformers: The Movie. I'll ashamedly go ahead and admit, when I was 10, I thought it was a pretty awesome (and quite horrific) scene, but it in no way warrants a commemorative bust or anything like this.
