Not seeing much Burt Ward there, but it's a so-so likeness of Jamie Gertz.

I'm getting more of a short-haired Kate Jackson vibe but we're on the same wavelength, SprangFan. It's weird because in the concept drawing the likeness to Burt is dead-on and then the sculpt goes right off the rail. Anyways, I have almost the entire Diamond bust line but have passed on the Adam and will pass on this one because they aren't close in likeness. For some reason this bust has me hearing the themes from Dark Shadows, The Rookies, and Charlie's Angels. :lol:

I can see some Kate in there, yes. And "Charlie's Angels" probably has a lot more sales appeal than "Square Pegs." :lol:

This is the same thing that happened with the Adam bust: nice concept drawing, but the sculptor apparently never got to see it.

Good thing they put it on that bat-themed base, since "generic youth in Sunday School sweater" probably wouldn't move a lot of units otherwise.

I'd pick it up but then I'd have to get the Farrah and Jackie Smith ones too.
Totally Kate Jackson. I've never seen or heard of Square Pegs but I see Kate Jackson all over this.

Andy, how dare you write this when I'm sipping a hot black coffee! YOWCH! (in full '66 image graphic). :lol:

Sprang Fan, I don't get the Square Pegs reference either? Please explain for, we, the unenlightened. :P
