Thats what I love about that casting, the weight of it is immense. Plastic chassis won't do it for me on this one. Its sad though because the gold color works so well in my opinion. Nonetheless, great find!A nice example, although that one has a chrome plastic chassis. Real Splittin' Images are metal-on-metal and are heavy enough to double as boat anchors. Ok, not really....but another victim of "Rodger Dodger Syndrome" nonetheless.
