I think Space X just launched an HW Tesla in space with a 1:1 Tesla Roadster as the cargo.  

Very cool launch and even cooler seeing the booster rockets come back to earth and land upright. And the unrelated announcement of crunch-less Doritos. USA, USA..

And since Jaws was released two years earlier, there has never really been a decent amount of shark-themed collectibles available for the film. At least until Shark City Ozark created this wonderfully detailed 1:6-scale Bruce bust. Peer deep into its jaws and you can...

This Infrared Grill Also Roasts and Smokes
