They are nice but at first, I thought it was going to be one of those huge cut-outs of Freddie from the "The Great Pretender" video-I'd love a lifesize one...for decorative purposes of course!

These look homemade to me. Like somebody cute out some big prohots froma book or magazine, glued them to posterboatd, cut them out, and then pasted a cut out Queen logo from another book or magazine on the front. I'd be shocked to find out they were actually produced for the record company to promote anything.

My local Sam Ash store has a life-sized standee of Brian. They have it set up next to a life-sized Eric Clapton on a stage in the middle of the store.
