    Darth Vader, Univ of Iowa Mascot????

    His name, Galactic Herky. His title, Dark Lord of Sith and official Mascot of the University of Iowa. http://www.herkyonparade.com/thestat...tails.asp?I=10

    This is part of an art festival commemorating the 75th Anniversary and rennovation of Kinnick Stadium at the University of Iowa, Iowa City. 75 six-foot, 300 lb statues of Herky the Hawk in various costumes located in the Iowa City, IA area. I've seen about 5 on campus. All look cool.

    This seems to be the latest trend, adding numerous statues around a town each painted or modified by a different artist. I've come across a few:

    Lexington, KY - Horses
    Galviston (?), TX - Pelicans
    Cleveland, OH - Guitars

    There a few others but I'm drawing a blank on them right now. It was interesting the first few times I came across them but now it seems to be a bit much.

    EP, Los Angeles area had weird angel statues like that.


    That Vader needs to be away from my eyes.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Lincoln, NE has bikes all over the damn place. My town, Lafayette, CO, has dumb owls for some reason. Anyway, the Vader thing is odd.
