    A. Abbey Road all the way - and that is one heck of an amazing album as well

    The B. Let it Be look is cool too.

    The promo photo is the winner for me. Abby Road is a sick album but the promo photo allows for much more individuality. George looks especially awsome!

    Either way please don't do the Get Back version. I dont know if i could deal with John's 1/6 junk being reproduced in your level of detail!

    Abbey Road ia probably my favorite Beatles album. So I vote for A.

    I was always partial to their look in the Help, Rubber Soul, Revolver era though.

    Thank you all!
    I'll go to 'Abbey Road'.

    And also available early~mid age Beatles head sculpts without mustaches and beard.
    Keep watching my Beatles custom works.
    Thanks,

    Serang.

    Re: Need help - 1969 Beatles look.

    But why 1969? They were starting to break up by then. I would far rather have Beatles figures from an earlier time:
    The classic and iconic 1962 look http://beatlefans.com/post/Beatles1962.jpg
    The cheeky Hard Day's Night look http://www.documentary-log.com/wp-co...ht-287x300.jpg
    And can you imagine how cool a full Sgt Peppers treatment would be? http://members.home.nl/jpgr/pepper.jpg

    Thanks to your opinion.
    I love all period of Beatles.

    But 1969 Beatle is a 'essence of Beatle' to me.
    Style, music, look & feel is a 'real Beatles', so 1969 Beatles title is a 'Abbey Road' and 'Get back'.

    Sgt Peppers looks very cool, i love them, If many people want this version, i'll trying to do this version.
    thanks,

    Serang.

    Re: Need help - 1969 Beatles look.

    Well, to each their own I guess. But as someone who grew up with the Beatles and bought every single album when it came out, I will always remember 1969 as the end of the Beatles -- a very sad time for those of us who lived through it. Of course, if by "real Beatles" you mean 4 guys who hated each other and were already going their separate ways, then yeah...

    And btw "Let it Be" wasn't actually released until after they had broken up.

    From a sculpting point of view I'd say photo D would be good as the hair would be easier to sculpt when using either a neck style head or a neckless one.

    CHEERS!
