James Dean Statue
“You’re tearing me apart!”

This iconic collectible immortalizes both a legendary Hollywood actor as well as your own street-corner loitering, leather jacket-wearing youth.
“I’ve had nightmares in my time, but I’ve never dreamed of anything like this.”
Star Ace Toys Ltd. brings another impressive Ray Harryhausen creation to life in the Ymir (Deluxe Version) Statue. This stop-motion movie monster collectible perfectly replicates the horrifying beast as seen in the 1957 classic 20 Million Miles to Earth. Honor an undeniably impressive animation era when you bring this alien home.
Jack Lemmon Statue
“Success is always somebody else’s opinion of you, but it doesn’t amount to a damn compared to your own opinion of yourself.”
Elegance, style, class, talent, and an engaging personality are just some of the many ingredients that have made a multi-faceted actor such as Jack Lemmon the symbol of timeless cinema. He is the blueprint for the uptight everyman, the foil to the untidy buddy. His physical comedy prowess is exhibited here in the Jack Lemmon Statue by Infinite Statue. Fans of old Hollywood will surely not want to miss this piece!
Walter Matthau Statue
“My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I told him I couldn’t pay the bill he gave me six months more.”
You can’t separate Jack and Walter! This inimitable actor’s powerful stage presence, charisma, and unmistakable facial expressions are captured in beautiful detail in the Walter Matthau Statue by Infinite Statue. As depicted here, just one of Walter’s unparalleled sardonic smiles was enough to forgive him for anything — including spilling beer on Jack’s freshly vacuumed carpet!
