Another amazing piece from TWH Collectibles! I was a little hesitant to purchase this item at first because of the price, but when I received the shovel I was absolutely blown away (I purchased the FD version, not this one)! The size and detail of this shovel is second to none, I needed help just getting the box into the house. The shovel is so big and heavy that it actually started to collapse the shelf it was on, no kidding! Amazing piece at an amazing price!
