Hey Taxi 9″ Up Close and Personal

Now for the photos of the real 9″ Hey, Taxi NYC Disney Store exclusive! (The previous pics were from the statue inside the store) It’s slightly different from the statue but somethings are much more clear. Here’s the back…

I think the 9″ head clearly shows the World Trade Center towers better then the statue’s head. I wonder what Jim Valeri’s reasoning was for placing them in the skyline. Whatever the reason you have to agree that it screams New York City.

A closer shot of the image on the back. Mickey pointing at Lady Liberty and the license plate reading Mickey. (It’s pretty crazy that Mickey ended up in a taxi with his name on the back! That’s like getting a ride in the Cash Cab! What are the chances!)

And the front…

I love the details of the lights on the taxi sign. In fact they painted them from all four perspectives.
