Here's a La Luna maquette you'll probably never own

I wish my headline was wrong...

So you may remember back in June, Natalie posted about a plush of La Luna's Bambino being available. The folks at Pixar Times have another little surprise: a maquette of Bambino produced by Gentle Giant! Coming signed by the short film's director, Enrico Casarosa, it comes in a fancy printed box based on the film's art and a nifty base. Plus, check out the detailing and paintwork; it's immaculate.

So the bad news is that it's limited to 500 pieces and costs US$120. The worse news is that it's apparently limited to Pixar's store on it's campus in Emeryville, Calif. ... the one that's closed to the public. Crappity crap. I'm not sure if all 500 are gone or not, but if they aren't and you are reading this in Pixar's offices, I have a check to send you. Why? Because throwing money at my computer screen didn't make this come to my front door.
