I just wanted to let you know those of you that didn't know if they were worth the money, they are! This was a great Christmas gift from my in laws. I got Zach so far, Dan is on backorder. Zach came in two pieces, and went up fine. They also send you a Zach Thomas name strip, a 12 inch round decal of Zach, and a 5 inch Miami Dolphin logo. I have Zach right between my Stevie Ray Vaughan collection in the garage!:beerbang: I just thought I would share my fat head experience.:D

Thats cool, all though a few people here have said that they don't stick to the wall that well... too expensive for me anyway.

I just followed the directions, and cleaned the wall really well, and let it dry completely, and they stuck great. I also used the roller they give you to get out any air bubbles there may be. So far so good. I just put it up tonight.:)

They're cool but FAR too expensive....especially since I work at a graphics and sign company and can pretty much make them for myself for free. :D

They are pretty sweet. I have a Dolphins helment and my Dan Marino one is also on backorder. I haven't put up my fathead yet because I don't have much room on my walls. But I will figure something out and atleast put one in my room and the other one elsewhere.

While the materials and processing to make the fatheads probly don't cost too much, I have to say that the official NFL lisence and Players Inc lisence can't be cheap.

Just got to eat a little crow right now. As much as I was talking up fathead, after two days one part fell off the wall, and the other part was about too. I put this on just like the directions said, and I can't even get an email back from fathead, so I will have to call them next week. i just don't want to see anyone else get screwed!

Wow. Sounds like people are getting shammed with these fatheads. Did they come with a money back guarantee or anything like that? If they did, you should be able to get your $$ back. It looks like you may be getting the run-around from them, too. Hopefully you're able to communicate with them. With inferior products and poor customer service like that, they won't last as a business.

The In laws bought me these for Christmas, and I am fired up. Tey are lucky that there customer service was closed.:fire:

funny you should mention that... a few years back I came into possesion of a "Joe Camel" full sized cardboard poster. I hung it on the back of the bathroom door and the women would go in, close the door behind them and about the time their drawers hit their knees as they squated they notice a man in the bathroom with them. MANY a funny moment. The guy next door borrowed it and put it on the outside of his glass sliders and then told his teenage son to open the drapes...good gag material, these life sized images...

I just got my Dan Marino fathead today. The sad news is that I don't have any room to put up both of my fatheads(Marino and helment). Me and dad are gonna clear up one side of my wall and put up a fathead. I really don't know where to put up my other one.

:lol:The wife and I solved that one. I had to return my first Zach because it fell of the wall a couple times and was in bad shape. Get some white flat thumb tacks. Put the white obviously where this is white material to hold up your fathead. Use some of the extra vinyl to cut and put on the top of your thumb tacks to ensure of good color match. Just trying to help so you don't have to go through the frustration of watching them fall off the wall after two days!:)

Which is ******ed because that has always been the "sale". They're trying to make you think it's a sale but it's really not. Just make the damn things $70 & they'd probably sell more. There's one hell of a mark up on those things.
