That's bloody aweful! Why the hell would they do a proper bust for the other 2 and have Freddie's arms lopped off??? I know he's most famous for those poses, but they could have done a regular one of him.

Looks like Freddie is trying to do an imitation of the Gene Simmons one to the far left.

Man is that awful.

I agree about that too. It's actually not only ugle but scary, creepy. Who is the god awful ''artist'' who did this because I hope he/she doesn't quit their day job over this ''art''. Plain awful.

You grow up, numbnuts. I was speaking to the point that the other 2 don't look like a figure in some horror flick with bloody stumps flailing around. Hardly dignified.

don't insult people - i quoted YOU exactly as you typed it - we're not fucking psychic...we're not mind-readers....'arms lopped off' means fucking 'arms lopped off'
wtf else is it supposed to mean... say what you mean....and don't insult people - it only re-inforces the arguement that you could be the cretin you appear to be making of yourself

oh and finally - because you are obviosuly so UNEDUCATED...Freddie's 'arms lopped off above the elbows' is actually reminiscent of one of the most famous pieces of artistic sculpture ever made - the Venus de Milo - so it COULD be taken to be a flattering piece - now who lookslike a numbnuts ????

My apologies for the insult - your rants do the job for me. Telling someone to grow up after they've voiced their personal opinion regarding the visual aesthetics of said poster is insulting.

As for Venus de Milo, oh educated one, that piece originally had arms, which were stolen later. The piece still exudes beauty, granted, but one can tell by the fractures of the upper arms that it is no longer how it was created. The bust of Freddie looks like Carl Weathers' pain-ravaged face as he's being skewered by the alien in Predator, after having his arm blown off by the creature's shoulder cannon.

The poster is ugly, plain and simple.

I have to agree on this one. It's an INSULT to the Venus de Milo, and NO her arms did not look like they had been hacked off and her face does not look like she is contorted in agony!

He looks like he's screaming after having his arms cut off...David Bowie looks so much more dignified, even without arms!

Ok, no need to insult Gene and David. Theyre both superstars of music aswell. This is about Freddie. True it is the thought that counts. But for such a rock legend, may I add not just rock but a legend in all aspects of life. For him to be shown like this is quite disgraceful. You would think that maybe they could have put some more time, effort and maybe a different artist into this poster. I don't feel it looks anything like the great Freddie and it does disappoint me that they have tried to pass this off as him. I feel he deserves better than this. He was a top bloke and this isn't a top poster to match.
